Meaning:Slim and fair
Kailey is technically a recent American invention, but this trendy feminine title has roots in Irish and means “slim and fair.” Like Kayley and Kaylee, Kailey is inspired by the anglicized Irish surname O’Caollaidhe, which lends the connotation “narrow” with the Irish word caol. While Kailey isn’t exactly an original choice, its spelling makes it stand out from the other kay-lee-sounding names, resembling Bailey and Hailey. Kailey sings off the tongue and suggests a gentle yet assertive demeanor—a beautiful appellation that won’t let you or baby down.
