I love my name! When I was 10 years old I changed the'spelling from Kelly with a "y" to Kellie with an "ie". I loved the fact that it was different and thought that it looked much prettier that way. Now it is officially spelt with an "ie" on my passport, license and all other frms of identification. I love when people sing the Famous Kelly Song from Cheers to me...."Kelly, Kelly, Kelly, Kelly...kell...yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy❤️ because she is Kelly, Kelly, Kelly,Kelly" and that's when I can correct them and say its Kellie with an "ie"!

I named my daughter Kellie (with ie) so of course I love the name. She is 17 and there is not one other Kellie in her class. I like how the popularity of it died down awhile ago. When she was born, there were literally no other "Kellies"....It's a beautiful name! My daughter is Kellie Anne btw.

01/14/2024 00:00:00

didn't meet another girl named Kellie (she was Kelly) until I was 14. It was very uncommon for a girl to be named Kellie, especially spelled with an IE at the end. I'm now 55 and they still try to give me a "Y"! Never really get used to it! Hated my name when I was young, LOVE it now!

01/14/2024 00:00:00

i totally used to spell my name with an "y" from age 4-6, but like many other kellies i now live my "ie"!!!

11/19/2023 05:03:00

My name is Kellie. I LOVE my name! Its so unique and like no one has It'spelt Kellie. I hate it though when people spell it with a y. I also hate that'stores NEVER have anything peronalized with an 'ie'. One time someone goe me this xmas ornament spelt Kelli I just added the e. LOL! Love my name!

11/16/2023 07:23:54

That's my name most everyone spells it wrong... it annoys me so much... i love my name but i dont love that everyone spells it like a last name.. I'met a kelli and a kelly and it got weird when someone wrote a message to 'kel' and we all got the'same spelling error problem.. Really... is it that hard to spell a simple phoenically close name❤️

11/13/2023 22:23:02

I love the'spelling with an IE, I think ending it in Y is a surname & looks boring. Kellie is a lot more sexy!

10/29/2023 06:47:38

my name is kellie lots of people tend to spell it wrong

10/08/2023 01:29:04

my best friends name is kellie and i think it a unique and great spelling. people somtimes pronounce it keely or spell it wrong anf it really annoys her. and she is the only person i know with It'spelt that way.

09/26/2023 06:28:10

my name is Kellieanne but i only prefer to use Kellie and i find it totally frustrating when othe's spell my name with a Y.

09/25/2023 01:57:44

MY name is Kellie...yeah with the IE! I think its a unique way of spelling Kelly. As everyone may see now a days its usually spelled with a "y" buti like "ie" just the way it is. Its more to my personality.

09/02/2023 14:22:56

07/22/2023 11:24:16

In a sport i played, there we 2 kell [1 y and 1 ie spelling]. So we became known as kelly Y and kellie IE.

07/22/2023 03:10:32

I can't stand people spelling my name wrong!! Its irritates the hell outta me..also I think Kellie with a Y look ugly lol

07/15/2023 09:49:50

My name is Kellie. I love it. The "ie" spelling makes the name look prettier and although it can be annoying when people misspell it, I agree with a previous comment in that it does show you who cares enough to spell it correctly. However, it is almost impossible to find personalized things with It'spelled with an "ie."

07/10/2023 21:58:24

Kellie is the weirdest spelling of my name. When people spell it wrong I want to scream espeacially when its someone I know well.

07/05/2023 21:46:22

my name is Kellie Anne and i love my name and I'm quite proud of it. when i was younger i would write my name with a y because i would hate people picking out the fact it was written with an ie but now i just love it.

07/01/2023 16:40:30

My name is Kellie and I love it as well. I rarely meet another Kellie spelled the'same so I feel unique in that'sense. Yes it is misspelled all the time, but so are a lot of names. I love it and hope there will be more new girls with our name!

My best friend is named Kellie. With an IE. And don't you forget it! I think It's cool that'she has a more popular name, but It's more unique because of the way she'spells it.

This is my name and i love it. I think its great and unique. It's not as common as some names but It's not completely unusual. I do kind of get mad when people call me hay-lee when my name is hal-lee but everyone makes mistakes. I would recommend this name to anyone.

01/15/2023 01:55:26

My name is Kellie Anne. I like it, mainly 'Kellie' though. I don't know many other Kellie's especially with my spelling. I HATE the nickname 'Kell' though... drives my INSANEE.

01/03/2023 21:53:50

Of course... My name is Kellie too! spelled with the IE! I love it! I get soooooo P.Oed.when people dont speel it right(and then usually spell it wrong)! I think It's creative and unique (like me!)I was on wikipedia when i saw that the original way to spell Kellie is kellie(not Kelly!) Thanx for listening!

12/11/2022 05:30:58

I like my name. It can be annoying when people always say "It's with a y, right❤️" But I still like it.

12/10/2022 13:38:46

My name is Kellie. The most annoying thing in the whole world is when people spell it with a Y. I have had my English teacher'since september and to this day he'spells it with a Y when I constantly remind him that it is with an IE. I like the IE becuase it is fun and the Y is boring to me. But thats jsut me, I think that most names that end with a Y look better with an ie. but thats my opinion.

11/15/2022 07:56:28

well obviously im called sabrina, my nicknemes are sabrin, sabri, bina, bean, bean bag, beanis, a certain 5 letter word that'starts with p and rhymes with beanis, pina colada (i have no idea how it ended up as that but oh well) and yeah. the whole sabrina the teenage witch happens ALL the time, but i just laugh at them and tell them they have no creativity whatsoever

11/11/2022 17:32:16

i love my name! i do hate when people spell it with a "y" but i think since it is spelled differently if people spell it right It'shows that they know you and they care enough to know!

11/08/2022 15:28:40

11/02/2022 09:53:18

My name is Kellie. the most irritating thing is when people are writting my name down they always ask "is that with a y or and i❤️" im like "IE". think its very unique and i love the way its spelled. :-)

09/23/2022 17:06:02

09/25/2021 08:23:24

A pain to have this name in the 80s. There was at least one other Kelly in my class always so I ended up as Kellie Jo. i've accepted that It's never going to be spelled correctly by othe's, but It's my name and I do like why my parents picked this spelling
