Does anybody like the name Kye, or is Kai a better spelling?

Kai is a better spelling and love the name (it's getting very popular though!). We used it as part of DS's middle name!

love the name and agree Kai is a better spelling

Don't like it - sorry

i didnt realise Kai was pronounced Kye, I thought it a version of Kay. Is it Oriental?

Kai is used a lot in Chinese names though I agree that it is not just the Chinese who use it! We use it as part of DS's name as he is half-Chinese and has a Chinese middle name but I have seen it used as a first name as well.

Kai is the maori (NZ) word for food.

Kai originally comes from Sweden, a very old name although it sounds modern!

Kai means sea in Hawaiian. I don't think Kye exists though.

DS1 has a friend called Kai.

Don't spell it Kye or you'll be on that thread about strange spellings of names.

Kye looks like half the name is missing.
Sorry. smile
