My name is Kayleigh Richter. My mom named me Kayleigh because she always loved the name but she hated how it would have lee at the end, so she'spiced things up and put leigh at the end. I like my name, I don't love it cause it always gets misspelled and or people say it wrong. Even worse is that they also say my last name wrong and misspell it. I would definitely not recommend giving your child this name if your child's last name is difficult to say and spell.

My six year old daughter is named Kayleigh Marie. We took her name from the Marillion song Kayleigh. We fell in love with that'song and the name back in 1997. Eventhough she is six she has said she loves the name. Some people/friends try spelling it Kaylee but she always corrects them. She thinks it is great that a song was written "for her".

10/27/2022 4:38:32 PM

My names Kaileigh Anna after the'song as well, but my parents decided to make it a little different and change the y to an i, i love my name but very few people ever'spell it right.

10/18/2022 1:38:44 AM

My name is also Kayleigh and my parents named me after that'song too :D i didnt relize so many people wer named Kayleigh

10/15/2022 6:03:04 AM

I'm Kayleigh, I was named after the'song by Marillion that was actually released 94 like another girl stated. At high school I was the oldest Kayleigh in the'school. I can't stand the other variations of spelling my name.

10/10/2022 4:08:12 PM

my name is kayleigh my mom named me after marrilion there is only 2 kayleighs in my school i feel proud of it!!

10/3/2022 12:27:22 AM

I named my daughter Kayleigh. She was born in 2005. I did name her after the'song by Marillion. The first time I heard the'song was when I was living in London, England in 2001. (The'song was a huge hit in England btw). I think Kayleigh probably thought her name was difficult when she was younger, but she never let anyone shorten it in any way. I still very much love the'song, and I still think It's the most wonderful name. Oh yeah, and I still love her too.

10/2/2022 7:07:00 AM

9/28/2022 4:22:12 AM

Nobody seems to be able to spell it right. Most people think I'm called 'Kelly' or 'Kylie'. It's really tiring always having to correct people. What a pain in the a..!

9/20/2022 12:06:06 PM

8/27/2022 2:41:24 PM

My name is Kayleigh and I love the name. I am 17 and i've not once meet somebody with the'same name as me, and yes I was named after the'song which is annoying because once i've told people my name they always ask if I was named after the'song. Personally I wouldn't change my name as I think It's girly and suits my personality which is happy and bubbly:)

8/14/2022 4:30:18 PM

Well I'm due to have a girl in June, and I'm going to name her Bayleigh Grace I love the name for either, stilll unsure on how to spell it, Bailey or Bayleigh. My ex had a dog called Bailey and it was a boy, but i've loved it for a girl for a long time. It's a unisex name and people are cruel if they wana take the mick outa people just for their name!

8/8/2022 3:01:12 PM

Yes, my name is Kendra. I have always experienced people asking me to say my name again for clarity. I love my name. When I was young, I was the only Kendra around in school. (Born 1965). But since then when I was an older teen I found out that there was another Kendra in my hometown who was a bit older. Just last year I finally met her at a concert outside and I told her that I knew about her back in 1984 approx. Apparently, she had no knowledge of me or that we knew the'same guy way back when. It is truly funny, but a co-worker of my first husband actually named her daughter after me. At a party I sat down next to Kendra and told her what her name meant. She'smiled. My father was searching for another name with a "K" in it. He actually heard it on the radio before I was born. Hence, that is how I received the name. Thank you. :)

8/1/2022 4:29:24 PM

7/27/2022 2:54:00 AM

Yeah, I'm Sabrina too. When I was a little everyone at school called me 'Sabrina the teenage witch' so it kind of annoyed me, but now I have started to like it (I'm 18 now). I feel special too because not many have it. My brothe's and sister calls me Saija, my parents just calls me Sabrina and my friends just Sabi.

7/1/2022 11:54:54 PM

My names Kayleigh...Yeah, the'song. I dont like the person who named me but I like my name. It takes people forever to learn how to spell it. I love how unique it is. Ive never known someone with the'same spelling.

3/17/2022 2:09:00 PM

I named my daughter, who is 4 and a twin, Kayleigh Brianne. Did not name her after the'song, didn't even know the'song existed when I named her. Decided on the last part being spelled leigh because I had a friend in high school named Leigh and thought it was pretty.

3/15/2022 4:24:00 PM

I called my daughter Kayleigh she was born in 2010 this was probably the year it was at the height of its popularity however being from Ireland I do wish I had spelt it the gaelic way as in Ceilidh

3/2/2022 12:43:30 PM

2/22/2022 6:10:12 AM

My three yr old daughter has the name Kayleigh Paige. I had no idea there was a song with that name and have never heard it, but will listen now that I know. I chose the name because I always liked the'spelling since I was a child and had a friend named Leighann. Always wanted some 'Leigh' name if I had a daughter. It just seemed to fit her, even during my pregnancy. She is a bright, high energy, lovely and beautiful girl; and the name'suits her'so well I can't imagine calling her anything else. People have a hard time spelling it, but It's beautiful in script and my favorite spelling. We've since met one other Kayleigh who even shares her birthday, Aug. 16, but one yr older. We live in Pa. USA.

2/17/2022 10:52:48 AM

i love my name and most peole spell it wrong they either forget the "y" and spell it kaleigh or switch the "i" and the "e" spelling it kayliegh

2/3/2022 10:03:18 PM

I'm a Kayleigh Kayleigh Derwin be exact. My teacher would always call me Derwin and my friends all call me Kay. My little joke that I'made up was 'every kiss begins with me. From the (Kay) Jewlers ad . That's why I love my name and yes for all you Kayleigh's ouT There yes your name came from each a rock band??

1/27/2022 5:07:12 PM

Like many I was named after the'song, i've been called a variety of things by people who just can't get their head around the name - keeley, kylie, carly, kelly, hayley and even curly, I kid you not. I ALWAYS have to tell people how to spell it and i've never liked it, though I am pleased to see that there are people out there who love it. And Kiwi is a cool idea for a nickname too! I can't abide being called Kay and though I went with Leigh for quite a while it just didn't feel feminine enough.

1/18/2022 8:50:24 PM

My name's Kayleigh... duh. I was named after that Marillions song. The name is pretty, but it drives me crazy because whenever'someone asks me my name, and how to spell it, the look at me and say, "How do You'really spell your name?" And I always have to say, "L-E-I-G-H is another way to spell Lee." But still, It's very unique. My best friend's name was spelled Emily, but she changed it to Emileigh...

1/9/2022 4:25:48 AM

When i first found out i was pregnant, my boyfriend and i wanted a boy and we were thinking terrence. but then one day he'spoke up and said "i like the name Brent" and i was just so happy that he gave me his own opinion without me saying it first...that i loved it. But i do like it anyways. (we're having a girl!)

1/5/2022 4:21:18 AM

omg i cant belive it my names kayleigh marie thats like so! no but the'song from marillian was the favorite song from my daddy...when it came out in 1997 he loved it as soon as he heard it...he always said that he would call his doughter like that...and then in 2004 i came and becasue he was in the gulf of mexico(gulf war) ma mum call me kayleigh becasue we were never'shure if he would come back and with my name i always have a memory of him....i love my daddy and thank him for my lovely

12/27/2021 9:48:00 PM

My name is Kayleigh. It is the most wonderful name out there. My dad knew he would name me Kayleigh the moment he first listened to the'song, even'though he just thought the'song was alright. That was many years before even meeting my mom.

12/13/2021 11:49:30 PM

i was also named after the'song haha its an ok song, but i think its a very pretty name and i dont know anyone else called kayleigh. everyone spells my name wrong haha

12/2/2021 7:43:48 PM

I named my daughter Kayleigh on January 23, 2018. I just now saw the 1997 song, so I guess I didn't come up with the'spelling like I thought I did (I was born in 85). Anyway, the name you name your kids always becomes popular right after you named them, so I guess thats what happened with me.

11/21/2021 2:43:12 PM

my name is Kayleigh and I was named it because it means beloved in Arabic. my little brother calls me kaka which means poor in Arabic, but I don't really mind. kayleigh is an awesome name and it even has a love song made with the name. when I was little I wanted to be called Anna, but now I realise it is te best name ever!

10/30/2021 2:52:12 AM

I love the name kayleigh , I named my daughter Kayleigh Rose. beautiful i love it. and the meaning as well I didnt name her after the'song. It is an Irish dance - the name is soo pretty

10/9/2021 6:15:36 PM

If i ever have a little girl, i'd name her Kayleigh

9/24/2021 7:41:06 AM

When I first met with Ximena I was showing her a new home. I had her paperwork in hand which included her name; I'm usually very good at pronouncing names as I deal with all nationalities in my line of work but this was a first for me. I thought the X would be pronunced as "Z" (like in Xerox) so I pronounced it Zimena. She made no comment to the contrary so I thought I did it right. When I returned to the office my secretary informed me of the correct pronouncation and I got a little embarrassed so I'made a point to make a follow-up call to her the next day using the correct pronouncation when we spoke.

9/6/2021 3:07:30 PM

Kayleigh is what I'm naming my daughter due to be born in Nov 08. I love it. It is soooo pretty:)

8/24/2021 5:02:42 AM

I love my name, and the fact that I am named after the'song by Marilion. The name used to be unique but now it is more common. Everybody I'meet loves the name even'though they are confused by the pronunciation and spelling.

8/20/2021 8:31:30 PM

I Love the name Kayleigh It's my little sisters name!! i just love it

8/10/2021 11:32:24 PM

I absolutely hate this name! I don't mean to offend anybody ut It's very childish and sounds like You're talking to five year old. Think about how it will sound when'they're thirty five and trying to get a good job at a business that pays a lot. "If you'll give me your full name, please." "Kayleigh Nicole Smith." See?

8/1/2021 12:43:30 AM

hey my name is kaylie but spelt different lol i like it but i hate it cos people call me hayley instead of kaylie and it does my headin...

7/25/2021 2:05:24 PM

People never'say it right, they say "Kaylay, Kylayuh, kaleah" I do like the name in general though. It's very unique, and pretty. I love writing it in cursive, It's just so awesome like that. Pros: Pretty, Unique Cons: People never'say or spell it right
