Meaning of Kaleb

Meaning and originality:

Kaleb is just the simpler spelling of Caleb. Caleb is a character in the Bible. He was an early Israelite who set out with Moses from Egypt. He lived enough to get to the Promised Land. Etymologically, Caleb stems from the Hebrew word "Keleb" which means "dog". Maybe this name is chosen to refer to Caleb's devotion to God. The popularity of the name was initiated by Puritans. They created a costume of choosing the names of the less known Bible characters. Caleb with a K is very recent variation of this traditional name.

My name is Kaleb. Born 2003. In all that time, I have met only 2 or 3 other's with my name and they were spelt with a C, not K. I love my name. Although, I have met many Kayla's. I hate being in the'same class with those with that name. I feel foolish when'they say "Kayla" and i stand up... No matter. People also seem to want to spell my name with a C too. Gets on my nerves somtimes too. To all the other Kaleb's and Caleb's, love your name, embrace it for we are the rare dI'mond in the pig trough of names. See you all later.

7/1/2022 10:05:06 PM

My name is Kaleb. My family spelt it with a K only because my two sisters have names which also start with K. I don't mind the name personally (i am a teen). Even as its popularity grows as seen from the graph, It's fairly uncommon, and easy to hear in a crowd. If any parents are wondering to name their child Kaleb, all i have to say is i have no complaints, its a great unique name which see,s to be easily embraced by peers. No "making fun" with this one.

7/25/2021 7:41:06 AM

This is my name and It's a bit of a challenge for most people. I was named in the 60's when it was less popular than it is today so people are becoming a little more used to it. I hat the way It'sounds in my native tongue of English, ek-ZAY-vee-yuhr. It's very harsh to my ear. The'spanish speakers who call me hahv-YAIR, and the French speakers who call me zahv-YAY, endear the'selves to me quickly.
