Meaning:Descendent of Caollaidhe; Of Keely
For those who delight in ancient Irish customs, Caeli is a beautiful rendition of an ancient surname. Meaning "descendent of Caollaidhe" or "of Keely," Caeli comes from a family name deeply rooted in history. The Úí Caollaidhe clan were the ancient chiefs that ruled over a settlement called Críoch Uí mBuidhe, which was in current-day county Kildare. This exact location is mentioned in a medieval Gaelic text, Tuilleadh feasa ar Éirinn óigh, which means "More knowledge of the entirety of Ireland” and dates back to 1420! As a variant of Kaylee, Kailee, and Kayleigh, Caeli carries just as much historical significance and may be the crowning choice if your little one has Irish ancestral roots.
