My name is Kai Edmund Mayne, born 1962. Mom said there was a band leader that traveled the midwest in the late 40's. Probably Kai Winding. Saw him on the old Mike Douglas talk show in the mid to late 60's. I have loved the name and passed it on to my son, Kai Juston Mayne. In my many years, I have only met two Kai's. One a Canadian man of European birth and a Canadian woman of Aisian decent who pronounced it Kay. I have read about a couple othe's and know people who know people etc. Hope my Son has a boy and continues the name. Talked to a guy who named his Son, Kai and said there was a Scandanavian community in Wisconsin he was from that had many Kai's living there.

Perhaps some of the commenters need to step out of their trailer park middle-america, slack-jaw-yokel, American Idol watchin lives and get a whiff of reality. If you need to shorten O.K., then america is in some real trouble long term.

I just loved the name and meaning behind It'so when I knew I was having a boy, there was no question I would name him that! It's been mispronounced a few times, but I know my son won't mind. His personality matches his name. Ever'since he was born 2 years ago, we call him Kai Kai.

Qhen I was pregnant, our names were Kai for a boy, & Kyla for a girl. We had our Kai-guy, & although some people here (Toronto) raise their eyebrows, most definitely love it, to the point of writing down the'spelling. There is no other name for our Kaiser - he is a Kai, & we love it.

It's my grandson's name, and often authorities spell it wrongly - Kia is the fave misspelling - but that's orange squash!

5/27/2022 6:33:36 AM

My name is Kai and I'm a girl. I only know of boys and a dog (who is a boy) with the name Kai. I think it fits both genders. Some people are not sure how to pronounce it and they have a hard time remembering it. But I do get compliments on it. I get the "Hi Kai, Bye Kai" jokes from people and sometimes when I tell people my name they think I'm saying Hi instead of Kai, which can be a bit of a problem.

5/26/2022 10:19:30 PM

My name is Kai and I turned out to be a knuckle dragging mouth breather. I hate everything.

5/18/2022 3:52:30 AM

Wyatt is a classic name. It's neither complicated nor outdated. However It's one of those names that you have to see your son before you name him. My son's name was going to be Julian, but he definitely looked more like a Wyatt.

5/3/2022 3:21:54 AM

This is my sons name, because Lennon was my maiden name

5/1/2022 4:42:00 AM

My two year old son's name is Kai. I think It's a gorgeous name that is not only cute while he is young but a really attractive masculine name when he is older. Everyone i know seems to love it. It's unique and not too popular, yet not too wackey! Shame on all you people who dislike it!!!

5/1/2022 2:52:12 AM

4/27/2022 10:06:54 AM

My 7 month old is caled Kai wanted something unusual and easy to spell for his older brother who has Aspergers Syndrome. The meanings are an added bonus and it felt perfect when he was born

4/24/2022 8:48:36 PM

4/22/2022 6:29:06 PM

My name is Kai. When I was younger I hated it because everyone else was named Nicole or Betty. However I am proud that my parents were brave enough to name me Kai. Its an exotic and sexy name. In Africa it means lovable.

4/16/2022 6:49:48 PM

Apparently no one wants to comment about this name. haha my name is Kailee (pronounced kay-lee) and my nickname is shortened to Kai (like kai) and ther's a whole fragrance line with the'same name. its kinda weird that its a boy name

4/16/2022 2:15:18 PM

You all are such morons. To say that Zachary with an H doesn't make sense is the biggest display of human ignorance and stupidity in a long time. To question how -ch makes a "K" sound is absurd. Maybe Christmas should be spelled with a K too, right? I can't beli've people this dumb are having children.

4/16/2022 6:01:12 AM

I think th the name Kai is very strong and unique, and if you name your son Kai you probably want a brave strong son

4/7/2022 1:24:00 PM

probably just look up RPM morpher, which will paborbly bring up all 3 ranger'sets morphe's. Red Blue and yellow all use this one, Green and Black use the wrist one, and GOld and Si'ver use the gun morphe's.

4/5/2022 1:49:12 PM

My son Kai is 4. I love his name and he gets complimented all the time. It's strong and beautiful and so is he!

4/4/2022 1:13:12 AM

Our forthcoming son will most likely be named Kai - it is the one name my wife and I have strongly agreed on and the name conjures up meanings in various cultures of the'sea, stren'th, wisdom, and cultural cohesion which is sorely needed in our crazy world. Go get 'em Kai!! :-)

4/3/2022 6:00:18 AM

This is our son's name and we love it! My husband is from Spain and we wanted a name that would be easy to pronounce in English but of Latin/Spanish decent... Now we're expecting an'ther baby and we can't come up with a boy name that we like as much as Diego.

3/28/2022 11:44:06 PM

My baby is due in July and if a boy we plan to call him Kai. We live by the ocean in Australia. The name is perfect.

3/23/2022 8:18:54 AM

Kai is a simple and unusual name, but one without any negative connotations. A person with a name like this will stand out in a crowd, to his benefit.

3/15/2022 6:13:48 PM


3/14/2022 11:55:48 PM

I would love to name my child Kai... either a boy or a girl.

3/12/2022 4:13:12 AM

my name is kai and i hate it when i get old enough im changing my name to jakaiyah

3/3/2022 4:16:48 AM

My nephew's name is Kai and I love it. It is simple but strong and beautiful. It's funny that a few people have given it a thumb's down with such ignorant comments like incorrect pronunciation(short for okay)and saying its meaningless (it has numerous meanings). I wonder what their names are (they're just bitter that their parents probably didn't think when naming them; just chose something easy and common... David, John, Zack, Phillip...) Booooooooooooooo.

2/28/2022 12:13:48 PM


2/28/2022 3:59:42 AM

In Chinease, it means: trI'mphant, music of trI'mph,peaceful and happy. Great name.

2/23/2022 5:57:36 AM

I had never heard the name before and then'twice in one day just recently. A rescue dog named Kai and I did a quiz on FB "your name in Chinese" and it was Kai which meant "victory", so It'said. I do like the name though.

2/22/2022 10:38:24 PM

It's such a cool name! I love it because it not just Hawaiian but It's Japanese too and it mean the'same thing, sea.If I have a son I will name him Kai no matter what anyone says about it.

2/22/2022 9:43:30 PM

My new little grandson is called Kai Christopher and i just love the name Kai and the meaning, beautiful name!

2/17/2022 5:23:24 AM

Kai is a popular name in Wales were I come from. It is spelt in various ways, which are all pronounced the'same way - Kai, Cai, Cei (pronunciation rhymes with sky or tie) My son has the long form, Ceiron, but everyone calls him Cei. It is an old name in Wales which is taken from the name of King Arthur's brother, the knight - Cai (Anglicized to Sir Kay) from the original Welsh Arthurian Tales. It does not mean "keeper of the Key" in Welsh, it was just Cai's name, the nearest associated meaning in Welsh would therefore be along the lines of "a warrior" or "brave knight" or similar.

2/11/2022 7:27:36 PM

My Husband and I would love to have a boy, just so that we can name him Kai!!! We love it!!!

2/4/2022 6:11:06 PM

I love the name kai, becouse it is so unusuall,I have got twin boys on the way and we are thinking of calling them conner and kai, its a name that will make the child stand out, but in a positive way! unlike if you called a child apple!

1/25/2022 8:17:06 PM

My son's name is Christopher Kai but we call him Kai. I think it is beautiful and a strong male name. We also have a daughter named Kyra (pronounced Key-ra) and I love having unique names for both of my kids. People will always mispronounce a unique name but that doesn't make it any less cool of a name.

1/20/2022 2:07:12 AM

I just had a baby boy and named him Kai Ashley Evans. Everyone really loved it and my nan even said how much It'suited him. :)

1/8/2022 10:56:24 PM

I just don't like it. It'sounds like just another trendy, cutesie baby'sh sounding name. I know people in the'states use it for that reason. Not because it is Hawaiian or for what it means. Those are just excuses. Americans love trendy baby cutie-pie sounding names and never consider how it fits the child when he'she is age 45. What, do they think their babies will be babies forever? Sad.

1/1/2022 4:10:30 PM

I love the name Kai! We named our third son Kai and we get one of two things. Blank stares. Those are usually the folks that I would never take advice from to begin with ;) and then'there are surprised looks and many compliments at what a strong nice name it is. I think it is a creative name that carries with It'so many positive attributes, especially as a male name, especially stren'th.

12/22/2021 9:01:12 PM

I'm a Brit living in Japan and this is the name my Japanese wife and I chose for our son. It has the advantage of sounding like both a European and a Japanese name. Written in Japanese kanji we use the character for "ocean".

12/22/2021 7:17:42 AM

My name is Kai, I live in Germany, It's fairly common here and It's been around since the 80s.

12/3/2021 5:47:42 AM

My 10 year old son is named Carson Kai. When he was born my husband was not comfortable giving him Kai as his first name. He felt it was too unusual. We called our son Carson for the first 6 years of his life until one summer he decided Carson was too common of a name. It took a while to make the change but now everyone knows him as Kai. The funny thing was that he'started wrestling at a new club and the coach told him he would have to be called "Little Kai" because they already had a Kai at the club!! We live in Illinois where traditional names are the norm. Now we have a friend who is adopting their second son from China and will be naming him Kai too. Our Kai truly embodies all of the meanings attributed to his name. It is nice that he was able to choose it and that it fits him so well.

11/29/2021 11:06:18 PM

This is my sons name. People always spell it wrong. They say and spell it Landon.

11/15/2021 6:49:48 AM

We are probably going to name our daughter'sadie when she is born. It doesn't bother me that'some people name their dogs Sadie because people have long been using people names as dog names. It just means It's a cute name and that they love their dog. Our son's name is Charlie. Do you know how many dogs are named Charlie? Millions. It doesn't matter. Sadie is a beautiful name.

11/11/2021 6:39:00 PM

My name is Kai pronounced like Ki, and I think it is a beautiful name. I am often complemented on the beauty and unique nature of my name. There are lots of boys and girls of all ethnicities named Kai. The name is very diverse as it is found in Japanese, Chinese, Scandinavian, Navajo Indian, African, and Hawaiian cultures. It is a name with a lot of meaning, so it is okay as a fist name for anyone.

11/10/2021 5:56:42 PM

I am 5 months pregnant with my third child. I totally love the name Kai for a girl but i think i am going to put a super twist on it and name her Kai-Lee Lu Gessler i know sum people will confuse it as kylie when'they hear it but i dont mind explaining it.I have to do something cool for her name'since my other girl's name is Shilynn Aiyahna Gessler!!

11/2/2021 7:43:48 AM

I recently adopted a three month old sI'mese kitten from the'spca. Out of no where the name came to mind and after researching all the meanings and views, i like it even more it is simple but i do like the'strong back ground meanings of the names. Thank you for all your postings.

10/31/2021 2:33:18 PM

Its my middle-name and I like it! I am a 38-year old boy from germany, and I hardly ever meet other "Kai's". The pronounciation is, as mentioned above, like "SKY" without the "S". The best proven but yet least known meaning of the name is like-> "he who holds/carries/throws the'spear" and It's a CELTIC name. greetz from germany

10/12/2021 3:54:18 AM

I love the name Kai. If i ever have a boy i will definitely use it.

10/5/2021 12:48:00 AM

Kai is such a cool name. I Love it and am defen'tly considering calling my first child it.

9/18/2021 7:06:54 AM

The comment about the name Tamela being one of the 1000 most popular names - how is that possible? i've met one Tamela - I'm 52 and like my name. Sounds like all of us have the'same problems with our name. If there were 182 Tamelas for every 1 million births in the 60s then'that means that there was 1 Tamela for every 10,000 girls born in that decade. I use my hands to make a T when I say my name is Tamela - like Pamela with a T like Tom -

9/8/2021 7:16:48 PM

Killer name, funny to read all the thumbs downerz.. what a bunch of KOOKS. My son name Kai, he from Bali Indo...Big brown and strong

9/7/2021 10:14:06 PM

My name is Kai and so far, no one has ever : pronounced it wrong, made fun of me for it, beat me, or mistaken me for someone else. Around here, the name "Kai" is synonimous with "that crazy Russian that will kick your butt". My heritage is Japenese and Russian and when people ask me about my very Japanese name, its pretty cool that people are actually inter'sted in finding out its meaning. I don't know why people are giving this name a thumbs down. But you know what? At least my name is not "John" or "Matt".

9/4/2021 8:13:30 AM

My name is Kai and I'm 10 years old. It is awesome and i've only met one person with my name and it was a boy. Only his name was spelled Kye. Sometimes people call me Kia...I hate that.

9/1/2021 8:45:00 PM

I love my name! To be honest girls love it, too. ;-)

8/26/2021 8:10:48 PM

I named my son Kai after his great grandfather who was from Denmark. I loved the name and had never heard it before. Most people ask how it is spelled and think they did not hear it right. He was born in 2002 and I have run into several people with the name but most think it is a Hawaiian name.

8/23/2021 8:00:00 AM

My son's name is Kai Harlen Richard...middle names after his grandpa's. He is almost 5 and everyone I know loves the name. His baby'sister's name is Kenzi. I personally think the name "Kai" is very masculine and bold. People rarely miss pronounce his name. If Kai had been a girl..I was going to name him/her Kylee.

8/22/2021 9:01:12 PM

My youngest son is named Kai and we love it. It'suits him perfectly, reflects his dual heritage (American/Indian) and is contemporary, yet classic. He has been able to spell it for at least a year. Some people do misspell or mispronounce it as "Kia or Kay" but people do that to my name and it is Jennifer!

8/19/2021 11:28:48 PM

Kai is one of the rare names that is spelled the'same way and has strong, positive meanings in many languages. Those who've given it thumbs down obviously don't know the meaning(s) of it!

8/9/2021 9:55:12 PM

7/16/2021 8:33:18 PM

My son's name is Kai. It'suits my strong, independent-minded boy. For all those naysayers, let's think outside of the box. No one in my son's life will ever have to say "Kai who?" Open up.

7/14/2021 8:03:36 PM

My grandsons' name is Kai. I was somewhat concerned at first because I had a female friend named Kai and could not get used to it as a male name. Now I think his name'suits him to a "T". I get very positive feedback about his name though it is unusual in Canada.

7/9/2021 12:58:48 AM

i love the name kai. The kai I know is very outgoing and friendly, and handsome!
