From the experts:

Varying the spelling of an established name or word to substitute a k for a c has become more and more kommon, oops, common. Some parents feel that using a different spelling makes the name more of a name and less of a place or a word. Kairo may seem to lend itself particularly well to this practice given that the K spelling turns the first syllable into the stylish name Kai. But we prefer the more authentic Kai or Cairo.

I really love the names Kairo and Cairo. Sheree Whitfield from The Real Housewives of Atlanta has a son named Kairo. That was the first time i heard the name and i love it. Very smart and dashing name. It's also a name young boys would love to have as well, and nickname Kai is beyond cute!
