Alternate spellings: Kylie, Kiley, Kyleigh, Kileigh
Kylee is an alternative spelling of Kylie, a name now at #51 on the list. It’s said that Kylie is an Aboriginal word for “boomerang,” but many baby name experts doubt that. Some sources indicate that Kylie means “beautiful spirit,” in Hawaiian.
Most sources believe that Kylie is a female version of the boy’s name Kyle. (Kyle comes from a Scottish last name, which came from the Gaelic word caol which means “narrows, channel or straight.”)
Basically, you can use whatever definition you like – we won’t tattle. The spelling Kylee started appearing in earnest around 1983 but didn’t get below #200 until 2000.
