One “e” short of Bailey, this cute English name has stolen hearts since it first cropped up in the 1980s. Baily is a gender-neutral name rooted in the Old English occupational title Bailey. While it used to exclusively mean "steward" and "bailiff," over time it's gained some other intriguing translations, including "city fortification," and "berry clearing." Alternatively, you have a plethora of adorable respellings, such as Baylie, Bayleigh, and of course the classic Bailey, as in the Irish cream liqueur.
