Ceili is a Garlic word name that means ‘Dance’. Pronounced as KAY-lee, this word describes a type of party where people folk dance.

There are many similar, modern variations with alternative spelling options such as Kaylee, Caileigh, Cailie and Kaley… The list seems never ending with this one.

I love this spelling, it’s attractive on paper and it has a fun origin, other variations are sometimes considered ‘made-up’ amongst naming groups.

Some names that blend well with Ceili are Melody, Eily and Kara.
