I like it, it was on my shortlist for DS.

IrnBruTortie Mon 10-Apr-17 17:03:59

I love it. For various reasons I couldn't use it, but if I'd been able to it would have been on my shortlist.

Mrsknackered Mon 10-Apr-17 17:17:25

An exes name so couldn't use but I love it.

SumAndSubstance Mon 10-Apr-17 17:17:59

I like it too. I know a Malachi - he's a lovely boy.

I like it, think it was a magic bumblebee in a childhood book of mine.

Is it pronounced Malakee?
As in the Gaelic name
Or
Malachee?

I like it. I've worked with a few.

Makes me think of 'makarky' and that word makes me smile.

Jooni Mon 10-Apr-17 18:06:49

I like it. I also like Malachy (pronounced "MAL-ah-kee")

MotherMary17 Mon 10-Apr-17 18:09:29

It's pronounced Mala - Kai isn't it?

Lumpylumperson Mon 10-Apr-17 18:09:33

I know a Malachi. It gets shortened to Mali.

I like it, biblical names are good solid names imo. However, as a PP said, I also like Malachy.

SuperSix77 Mon 10-Apr-17 18:14:16

Love it.

cliffdiver Mon 10-Apr-17 18:56:42

I dislike it.

But only because on a package holiday a few years ago there was a (seemingly) badly behaved little boy of that name and all we heard constantly when trying to relax round the pool was the mum screaming

MALLLLLLLLAAAAAAAKAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIII

<shudders>

❤️❤️ ❤️ It ! 😄

Sophronia Mon 10-Apr-17 20:07:25

I like it. Prefer Malachy "MAL-ah-kee" though.

merrymouse Mon 10-Apr-17 20:08:26

I think it's great as long as you also really like 'Mal'.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Mon 10-Apr-17 20:40:35

I like Kye for short.

BridgetDarcy Mon 10-Apr-17 20:47:13

Love love love it. Would have been in my very short shortlist if it wasn't for our surname making it sound ridiculous.

I think it can be pronounced kee at the end or Kai at the end. I always say it as kee.

ChippieFishieHorshie Mon 10-Apr-17 20:53:24

I like it smile

DramaAlpaca Mon 10-Apr-17 21:44:35

Not my style.

Buntysoven Tue 11-Apr-17 00:46:06

Really not keen but maybe that's because I knew a really horrible one

lazycrazyhazy Tue 11-Apr-17 01:01:47

I love it but would assume you're Irish or is that just me?

PointlessUsername Tue 11-Apr-17 01:10:30

We have a Malachy ( Mal-ah-kee) he gets called Malachi quite often so is forever correcting people on his name.

he either gets called Mally or kee-kee by friends and family.

MadisonAvenue Tue 11-Apr-17 01:28:10

I like it but prefer Malachy.

I don't like it, sounds chavvy. Also reminds me of the baddie in save the last dance.
