Other Origin(s):American, British
Meaning:Slim, slender; Fair
Kaileigh can be considered modern invented name of American origin. But in fact, it harkens back to the Irish name Caolán, meaning "slender" and "fair." There are numerous Anglicized variations of Caolán, including Cayla, Caylee, and Keelin. The evolution to a “K” spelling lends a contemporary edge and makes this name accessible to all, as this letter doesn’t exist in the Irish language. Kaileigh presents a parent with a modern, fresh take and an interesting spelling that is bound to stand out on the page and beyond. Though the name celebrates physical traits, your little Kaileigh's inner beauty is certain to take center stage as she flourishes in life!
