One of my twin daughter's name is Kaleigh. We pronounce is "Cali" or "Kallie" not KAY-LEE. We love it! People just need to realize there are more than one way to spell/pronounce a name. Just like "Jesus". Can be pronounced "Hey-Zeus" or "Gee-zuz". Kind of a silly example, but you get the idea. It is nice of people who ask how to pronounce her name instead of automatically calling her "KAY-LEE".

09/21/2023 16:33:18

My 4 year old daughter's name is Kaleigh, pronounced Kay-lee. I love the name and so does she. When I named her I wanted to spell it a unique way that's why I chose the'spelling I did. Very rarely do people ever pronounce it correctly. Yesterday at the doctor's office the nurse oronunced it Ka-lee-ah. I get so fusfrated and very quickly correct them. To me It's pretty obvious the way It'should be pronounced.

09/13/2023 19:17:26

My name is Kaleigh, pronounced Kay-lee, and I love it! I haven't ever met anyone that'spelled it and pronounced it the'same way, but I always get compliments on what a pretty name it is. But, I rarely ever have anyone spell or pronounce it right...I usually get Calleigh or Kalei!

07/30/2023 05:43:48

We just named our beautiful daughter Alice because it is a strong, classic, feminine name. It also just happens to be her great-grandmother's first name (who was named after her beloved grandmother). I think it is a fab name and it is gaining in popularity!
