I've been terrified of the Ks over at Namenerds for a long time, now. Mostly because one explanation offered in that segment contains this statement:

k is a strong letter i believe girls need strong names to shape a strong personality.

Because, you know, without strong names with strong letters, girls just wither away into embroidery and nothingness. Eleanor, Alice, Liana... shrinking violets, all. I mean, who ever met an Eleanor with a strong personality, anyway?

This is one that I got out of that Name-O-Tron. I must say that it sounds very nice. I plan on using it in a story I write.

God bless you for not using it on a baby you conceive.

A friend of my mother in laws daughter was named this. She was killed in a car wreck when she was 16. I always liked it. Hope you will too.

Does anyone else find the juxtaposition of "She was killed in a car wreck" and "I always liked it" a bit chilling? Maybe just chilling enough to put me off Kabrina.

My wonderful, beautiful daughter's name-same as Kaley but my husband didn't like the spelling so he came up with his own and if you write it in cursive - it really flows.

Kaele's mother discovered, too late, that in fact every name on earth really flows when written in cursive. It's kind of the point of cursive.

Kaethe Elizabeth
I got this name from a book. The character's name was Katherine, but her Irish name was Kaethe.

Even though Kaethe is a German name. Oh those mystical Celts, they sure got around!

Great Irish understatements here!

As in, "Saying you had never studied vocabulary would be an understatement?"

(KAY-lun) name of a gorgeous angel haired at my first sons childcare whom I named my second child after. It is a gaelic boys name meaning strong warrior.

Man, it's amazing when those gorgeous angels hair at your daycare.

Kaeylarae Brielle:
Kaeylarae is the angel of peace, and that is what I hope my daughter will be!

Maybe the angel of peace in Crazyland. Or Kraeylaraezyland.

it's origins are Sanskrit and mean energy, dark goddess. I love this name because it is a simple name that shows how much you would value your child (goddess)

Funny, I thought it would show what you thought of your child (goddess of darkness and destruction). Maybe this woman should have a talk with the angel of peace's mom up there.

I love this name VERY unique

Maybe for a cat. Or a dancer at the KittyKat.


Kalvery, Golgatha and Holy Prepuce Jones? Come to the front of the classroom, please.

I have always liked the name Kalyca {kah LEE kah} for a little girl. Kalyca is a different, beautiful sounding name that I would be proud to yell out in a crowded store while trying to locate my child.

I, for one, am always proud to yell for my disobedient kid in public. Who wouldn't be?

It's unique....from Della which means nobility.

Can't get wax out of your tablecloth? Need a little mood lighting? Try KANDELLESSA, the new candle substitute! Proud choice of acolytes, Martha Stewart, and ritualist Satanists everywhere!

Hindi for "mighty poet." This is what your name a kid who's going to be seriously super-fly. Nicknames may include Vin, Vindra, Kavi. Gorgeous and rare.

AWESOME! They've figured out a way to genetically-engineer your child to be seriously super-fly??

(Kelly May) when i was little i wanted to have 2 girls called Kellie and Mae. then i thought it would sound better as Kelliemae and ive loved it since then. The hawian spelling for it is Kelimei which is more unique.

And definitely not "Hawian."

It is very unusal I think it means waterfall.

You know, I think. Either way, very unusal.

( kay- lee -ann) I haven't found a meaning for this either but would guess ~mysterious one~

I haven't found a meaning for it either, but I'd guess ~ augh! my eyes!! ~

Ciara Mackenzie
When I looked at her, I just knew that was her name. I actually came up with Ciara from a perfume that one of my favorite teachers wore. Mackenzie was because she has a lot of irish in her. I thought the name just rolled off of your tongue. Ciara is pronounced the same as sierra.

Yup. She's got so much Irish in her, she received a mispronounced first name and a Scottish second name. Kudos, MacMommy!

This was my top choice for a girls name but it is becoming a little to popular now. I also like the name Korin. It sounds rather German to me, and since I am a lot German, it brings out my heritage.

It SOUNDS German. Just like Sierra Mackenzie SOUNDS Irish! What a great way to honor your heritage!

Kinsie McRae: So cute! Kinsie is very cute alone, but McRae is always a good addition to most names.

McRae is always a good addition to most names? Wow, if only I'd known! Let's test it! Helen McRae. Miranda McRae. Mackenzie McRae. McRae McRae. WOW, I could go on forever!!

Kinsey was also a famous controversial sexologist. Very cute!!

not short for anything. The advantages are:
a. the boys will like it.
b. the girls will soon accept it.
c. the teachers will get used to it.
d. combining it with a middle name makes it more appealing, especially when paired with other gender-benders, i.e., Kit Morgan, Kit Tyler, Kit Cassidy, or a very feminine version would be Kit Delicata. (See Delicata)

I like how this woman is prepared for Kit to be so controversial that the girls will have to accept it, and the teachers will eventually get used to it. How does she even know the boys will like it? I'd go with Kallyko Kit, if I wanted boys to like it.

Kodie Lee: I chose the name Kodie Lee for my newborn daughter. For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to name a son Cody John, but when I found out I was pregnant with a girl I thought the name was perfect, although I decided to change the spelling because I thought it looked a bit more feminine, but still retained a strong & confidant quality. When my daughter was born extremey premature (24 wks & 1lb 8 oz), a friend had her name meaning analyzed, we found out that it meant "Gods Gift"....she truely is!

Hm. The best etymology I can come up with for this one is "island forest clearing," from Kodiak and the OE -ley. Or perhaps "ally forest clearing," from Dakota and -ley. If you reversed the Lee to Eel, Kodieel could be an Anglicization of Chagaiel, a falsely constructed name meaning something like "God's festivities," or perhaps of Kochavael, another falsely constructed name that could be construed as "God's star." This is all hypothetical bullshit, of course, given that I know no Hebrew, and clearly, neither does this woman's friend.

And finally, there are no words for these:

contact in German. I dont know why, but I just like it.

My best friend is named Katherine..and she wanted an upbeat funky nickname...Kafrika was born..when we mixed Kafrin (her previous nickname) with her favourite spice Paprika. (can also be said kaf-rica)

...i read this whole entry slackjawed. that last one made me hold my breath for at least a minute before i remembered breathing was important.

wow. just wow.

you should start offering up your word verification phrases (as in, if you post an anon comment here) as names on some of these boards as a joke. i'll give you mine:

Tyjhn (tie-JIN): I think this would be a strong name for a girl because T is a strong letter like Tiger. It sounds kind of middle eastern so i think it means "strong warrior blessed by god of peace and angels and puppies."

The character's name was Katherine, but her Irish name was Kaethe.

And you just know that she's mentally pronouncing it Kathy or Kay-thee.

If it were an Irish name, it'd be something like Ka-ha, and the German is Kay-tah.

I love this page its so cute! I am not considering having children for a while, but i love your coments on all the names. My name is Kalyca, and i searched up my name to find out how it should be pronounced. My parents have always said it kay-lah-kah, which is not what you have here. I recently met someone who had heard it pronounced it the way you have it here and ive never even thought of it that way. Were my parents just crazy or what?

Anyways, if anyone is going to name their child kalyca, you should be warned that everyone and their uncle with pronounce it wrong. Which drove me absolutely nuts from an early age. Most people just call me kaly (kay-lee)because it is so much easier. But i am happy and greatful that i was given such a unique name.

Ketesse is a drug. I love how totally obvious it is that the poor woman just made up the meaning 'waterfall.'

Does anyone realize that "Kafrika", if pronounced similar to the word Paprika, has the sound "freak" in it?

Kallyko (I think that's how you spell it is said as Callico! Which is something I would never call a child!

And in response to a few other posts:
There was a name that is said as Cameo. I happen to know a little girl named Cameo! She's a really sweet thing! She has two cousins though name Alex and Logan... And they're both just a sweet (even though they're both girls! Alex stands for Alexandra but I've yet to find out why they called Logan her name!)
I also know two little girls. Named Keely (which is fine) and Chessie. For a while everyone wondered where Chessie got her name. I plucked up the courage and asked and it turns out that the mum used to babysit another girl named Fancessca who was nicknamed Chessie.
Chessie, keely, Logan, Alex and Cameo are all stil my friends to this day!
But my favourite "Crazy name' by far has to be Version 2.0

I love how Kalyca's mom is already planning on losing her in a crowded store. I know that's what I fantasized about while I was pregnant.

On the subject of evil Kevin's, I'd like to point out that the doll that spawned the entire Child's Play movie empire's name was KEVIN.

Remember? "My buddy, Kevin!"

Oy vey. KALLYKO?! Is that meant to be Calico?! Sometimes I wonder if using baby names like these is Nature's signal that these parents need to be put in a nice padded cell. :D

Arrgh! I didn't finish reading before I sent my first comment.
KAILY!?! Like, Caley? BECAUSE YOU'LL HAVE HER DAILY. Good name for a prostitute then.
Or does it mean you'll only have her/him/she/it a day?
I like Sheryls idea. My name is:
Caldec - Irish in origin, as in, saying with a thick Irish accent "Sweetie, we've got a bloody cold deck!"
