Kaleb Name Meaning

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.


Here are some famous people named Kaleb:

Kaleb Toth (Canadian lacrosse player)

Vjekoslav Kaleb (Crotian novelist)

Both Caleb and Kaleb are climbing in the charts with great speed. Traditionally, Caleb has been way above Kaleb but nowadays Kaleb is getting very closer. Considering the fact that Caleb and Kaleb are practically the same names it seems like their distinction is just a matter of taste.

I was born in 1996, so there are probably only a few (relatively) who had this name before me. It was chosen by my mother as a variant of the Biblical/Hebrew name "Caleb". The pronunciation is exactly the'same: Kālĕb, or Kāləb. However, I have been'told many times that "Kaleb" actually has a more natural connection to the way it is pronounced (which I find undeniably true). The pronunciation of my name by other people is generally correct, which is good. Though of its mispronunciations, Kălēb/Kýlēb (short 'a', long 'e') tends to stand out the most. The'spelling has about the'same ratio of correctness. Most often, the misspelling is forgivable phonetic (ex. "Kaylub"). I actually find it rare these days for people to mistakenly start my name with 'C'. Overall, I enjoy my name. The'spelling looks good, It'sounds good, and it (even in its 'C' form) is rather uncommon (a trait that'should be embraced by more of the world). The underlying meaning of the name is pleasing as well. I definitely give it a Thumbs Up! - Kaleb Grace - 2018

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.

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.

The'spanish speakers who call me hahv-YAIR, and the French speakers who call me zahv-YAY, endear the'selves to me quickly.
