It makes me think of a big fish

reminds me of Daniella Westbrooke too... One reason I wouldn't use it, I'm afraid.

I have a nephew called it although the spelling is different.

I am not hugely keen on it although don't really dislike it, it's just not what I would choose. It seems to be fairly popular around here as well.

You can also spell it Cai, which is the Welsh spelling

diedandgonetodevon Sat 06-Jun-09 21:25:00

I don't like it, sorry. Makes me think of a shaven headed council estate kid.

Podrick Sat 06-Jun-09 21:25:48

Don't like it at all

nannynz Sat 06-Jun-09 21:29:28

makes me think of food, the nz Maori word for food is Kai.

There are 2 Kai's in my sons school. Don't like i'm afraid...sorry

I used to like the name, it is a fairly mainstream Scaninavian name. I think that in recent years in the UK it has developed a certain image, which is a shame, but because of that I wouldnt use it now.

Everybody is titoeing around and not saying it - so I'll just come out with it: it's chavvy....VERY

bigted Sat 06-Jun-09 21:41:34

hideous and chavy

Takver Sat 06-Jun-09 21:47:11

The only Cai I know is amazingly charming and delightful, so I wouldn't agree at all grin

he is not mine btw

Nancy66 Sat 06-Jun-09 21:50:02

that should be 'tiptoeing' obviously - tittoeing is probably something altogether different.

Meglet Sat 06-Jun-09 21:54:23

onthepier are you ok? The response hasn't been that enthusiastic has it sad.

missmama Sat 06-Jun-09 22:01:00

Well I like it grin
DS3 is Kai and no its not chavy but slightly unusual.
One of its meanings is fire, another is water.

bigted Sat 06-Jun-09 22:06:56

it is a very common name round here.
4 in Ds P2 class
