It first appeared on the female charts in the ‘90s, along with other names with similar rings (Avery, Kaylee, etc).

The name even took an in-sync dip on both charts in ’07 but is now back on the rise for both genders.

There are tons of different ways to spell it, but this one’s definitely the go-to.
