Kelly (Kay-lee) is a popular name used for both genders. It means a warrior and connotes aggressiveness and strife; it also means nature especially spring time and woods. There are various theories regarding its origins; according to many people it is mainly of Gaelic origin and was originally used as a surname referring to the Irish O' Kelly clan. The name became popular as a first name for boys; though later mainly because of World famous Academy Award winning actress Grace Kelly the name started being used for girls too.

The name "Kelly" comes from the Irish surname 'O Cealleigh (That is the Irish Gaelic language spelling before the English Crown Anglicised it in about 1640). The name is very old, dating to at least the time of Brian Boru. It comes from many areas around Erin. It means "war of contention." Perhaps the most powerful Kelly Clan was from Hy Maine (pronounced Hi Many in English). Kelly as used in the U.S. As a first name, is not Irish or of Irish Ancestry. It is simply an American first name.

Kellie is an unusual spelling or variant of the very popular name Kelly, which was formerly a boy's name but is now more often given to girls.

In origin Kelly is an Irish name. It is an English version of an old Irish Gaelic name, Ceallach, a name sometimes given to early Christians as it is based on the word ceall, which means "monastery or church." It then became a surname O'Ceallaigh, which simply meant a descendant of a man called Ceallach.

Even today the name Kelly is strongly associated with Ireland, although it has now spread all over the English-speaking world and is particularly popular in Australia. Associations with an old Celtic word for warrior have also helped to make the name popular. Some modern names of uncertain origin, like, Kayley and Kylie, may have been influenced in their development by the popularity of this name too.

I was told that the name Kelly derives from the name Kelda (a Viking name).  Kelda means Warrior Woman and Kelly means Warrior Maiden.  Woman or Maiden...warrior is a good definition of me!

I hate that it became popular, as a girls name. I am 46, when I was in school there were 3 Kellys in my class and they were all male including myself.Since  Grace Kelly made it popular amongst girls, when I tell people my name the first thing out of their mouth is " that's a girls name" I think I will start using my middle name Brian its just as good and I don.t know any girl named Brian:) But I still prefer it over my brothers name which is Kerry,lamo What was our parents thinking!!

I named my daughter Kelly, simply because I liked the name.  The meaning fits her personality.  I cannot remember exactly what I was thinking of for the other name, but it would have meant  'wild warrior woman.'  Thank the good Lord, I did not name her that.

"Kellie" is an alternate spelling of "Kelly," which is an Irish name.  It means "bright-headed" and probably refers to having light-colored hair.
