Other Origin(s):Greek, Hebrew
Kailene is a girl’s name of American origin. It may derive from the Irish name Caitlín or Caitlin, which itself shares connections with the Greek name Catherine, meaning “pure.” It may also be a variant of Kayla, a shortened form of the Hebrew name Michaela, meaning “who is like God.” Alternatively, it may simply be a modern invented name combining the popular prefix “Kay” with the suffix “-lene.” Whichever origin or meaning you prefer, this pretty name is right on trend, though still unique enough to help baby stand out from the crowd.
