It is derived from the word "Bailiff". -Usually brown hair with green or brown eyes. She is very intelligent and has an amazing way with words. She has a great sense of humor and can get anyone to laugh. There's also the kind of Bailey that is quiet and very intelligent along with wise. She knows the answer to just about everything. She has a very surprising side to her, sharp tongue and can kick @$$. She's also secretly very competitive, but tries not to let it out. She's very independent; so independent, in fact, she will go with what she thinks against an entire crowd. She'll sit by herself all day, if she wants. She can prove that she doesn't need other people, but she doesn't realize how easily they would accept her if she gave them a chance. Usually very pretty, but Baileys tend not to care as much or try to be to get accepted by others. If Bailey has a problem with you, she'll let you know; she isn't afraid of anyone!

Personal experiences with the name Bailey:

Bailey has a twin sister, Brooke. They go really well together for twin girls. We always say, "Brooke & Bailey" never Bailey & Brooke! For twin boys; Brooks & Bailey! sounds cute, eh!

My name is Bailey and I have a sister named Emily. A lot of people end up calling me "Bails" for short. Growing up it wasn't a common first name, so people thought it was my last name, but now people recognize it. I often get complimented on my name, so I think it's a good one :). The only drawback is that a lot of people have dogs named Bailey.

My name is Bailey. Nickname's not too bad. I did have some people calling me Belly for a while, but that stopped within a month. For a while I was annoyed that it was a popular pet name, but I've gotten used to it. I like that most TV characters named Bailey are usually intelligent and nice. There is a boy in my class with the same name as me (spelled Baily), and he gets bothered a bit for having a girl name, so maybe best to avoid this for a boys name. However I would suggest this for a girl. (I also like Elizabeth as a middle name for it.)
A friend has a little girl named Bailey Jameson.

This is my last name, and I love it.
