For me the spelling influences the pronunciation. "Kayleigh" is "k-lee"; "Kailey" is "kale-ee." My ex-SIL named one of her twin girls Hailey & about bit my head off when I said "hail-ee" instead of "hay-lee."

Kayleigh looks so much prettier to me. I think Marillion influenced me, though. No other spelling looks "right", somehow. I like Hayley and Haylie, so guess I'm inconsistent...!

It looks more like Kayley to me. I guess it's the exception to the rule. Jai is Jay but Kai is Ky. English is weird.

How is this a variant of Kayley when Kai is clearly pronounced "Kye"? Shouldn't it be a variation of Kiley/Kyleigh?
