Hairylegs47 Mon 07-Jul-14 23:02:27

Shorten it to Kiki if you like

PopcornFrenzy Mon 07-Jul-14 23:05:26

Love that nickname

DitzyDonkey Mon 07-Jul-14 23:07:40

Nay

DramaAlpaca Mon 07-Jul-14 23:10:53

Nay.

Unfortunately it screams 'chav' to me (sorry for the use of the c word)

I like Kay on its own.

ThedoublelifeofDollyBrown Mon 07-Jul-14 23:22:02

Sorry if I'm being a bit dim. How does it shorten to Kiki?

Pico2 Mon 07-Jul-14 23:28:57

Nay.

ZenNudist Mon 07-Jul-14 23:29:08

Nay

Chavtastic now (sorry) ok for older people as I think it was popular about 20-30 years ago.

Hairylegs47 Mon 07-Jul-14 23:34:43

It shortens because I know a most wonderful, funny, beautiful woman who is called Kayleigh and she shortened it to Kiki/Keeks! grin

She's not a chav either.
Ha ha, I wonder if she's seen this thread??
hmm

ThedoublelifeofDollyBrown Mon 07-Jul-14 23:42:15

I prefer just Kiki smile

I'd say nay. In that it feels a bit dated. It was made popular on account of the Marillion song wasn't it?

PopcornFrenzy Mon 07-Jul-14 23:58:01

DP has his heart set on it

I like it but agree it's a bit dated. Too 90s early 2000s.
What does he like about it?

PopcornFrenzy Tue 08-Jul-14 00:27:26

I think he heard me singing the song, the only thing is that surname is Kirwan...

Oriunda Tue 08-Jul-14 06:33:28

Nay

Anotheronesoon Tue 08-Jul-14 06:38:22

Nay nay nay

icklekid Tue 08-Jul-14 06:39:44

Yay- and I'm a teacher who generally doesn't like K names. Not taught an unkind Kayleigh yet!

burgatroyd Tue 08-Jul-14 06:43:25

Its alright!

Was the kind of name I wanted to be called as a teenager. That and Joely.

ZacharyQuack Tue 08-Jul-14 06:45:15

Hayley would be nice with your surname.

Batmansbuttocks Tue 08-Jul-14 06:47:26

Awful and yes chavvy, sorry.

MotherOfInsomniacToddlers Tue 08-Jul-14 06:54:51

No sorry I have a lovely friend called Kayleigh who most definitely isn't a chav, (actually a doctor!) but I still don't like the name!!
