- Comments and insights on the name Keli
Keli, Kiel and Kile are anagrams of each other; they contain the same letters.
I am 25, as of now, and have only met one other person who spells their name like mine. In spite of that, I've always been mildly frustrated by my name simply because in high school and college there seemed to be anywhere from 1 to 3 other girls with the same first and last name as me. The only thing that made me feel unique was the spelling of my name. I eventually just started going by my first and middle name together; KeliRhea. I like it, at least when people don't think I'm introducing myself first and last name and still just call me Keli. However, besides all this complaining, I do like my name a lot when I'm not being reminded how common it is, at least for my age group.
