Origin:Irish
Popularity:945
Meaning:slim and fair
Sometimes you want a name that’s close to the original spelling but different enough to stand out. Kayleigh succeeds in standing out from the crowd, which includes Kaley, Kayley, Kaylee and Kali. The name has Irish origins, ultimately translating into “slender” (“caol”) and “fair” (“finn”). In the US, Kayleigh first made the baby-naming charts in the mid-1980s and, though not as favored as Kaylee, is still making it on birth certificates across the country, possibly since the suffix “leigh” isn’t the powerhouse it once was.
