Kaylie is a Gaelic feminine name eluding to one demure in stature and delicate in nature. Though Kaylie may look every bit the modern trendsetter, its roots reveal an ancient ethereal quality. As a hip variation of the Gaelic Caoilfhinn, Kaylie takes its meaning as "slender and fair." It's a description that calls back to the Tuatha Dé Danann—a supernatural race often depicted as idealized versions of mortal beings.
