Other Origin(s):French
Baileigh is a gender-neutral name of English and French origin. It derives from the word “bailey” or “bailiff,” which comes from the Norman word bailli, referring to a medieval officer or steward. Bailey started out as an occupational surname, used to denote someone who worked as a bailiff. It then came into use as a first name for boys, before becoming popular as a girl’s name in the 1980s. Baileigh adds the trendy suffix “-leigh,” making it a fashionable choice for baby.
