Caye is a girl’s name meaning “wharf” and is also commonly used as an English surname. It’s derived from the Breton and Old Welsh word cai and the Welsh word key, which were both used to mean “wharf.” Historically, the word wharf was used to refer to the bank of a river or the shore of the sea. Today, though, it’s used for any structure where boats are docked while they receive cargo or passengers. Caye has a fresh and modern sound, and if you’re looking for a chic one-syllable moniker, this could be a perfect fit for baby, whether they set sail or stay put.
