Definition funny of Ceilidh:

urbanCeilidh (kay-lee) is the Scotch Gaelic word for a "visit" -a party or celebration. The Irish Gaelic spelling variation is "ceili." The party involves dancing, music, drink and food... and usually that nasty haggis.

urbanI'm going to preform the sword dance at the ceilidh.

urbanpronounced 'kay-lee' not 'sea-lid' get it right. it's a girls name, mostly used in scotland or ireland. If you live somewhere other than those 2 places and you're named this either your parents hate you, your family's heavily scottish/irish, or your parents were trying to be 'unique'. If you fit any of the above and you are looking to name your child ceilidh please note, your child will be nicknamed 'sea-lid' all her school years and it will not be fun. Trust me. So go name your kid something better than this, like alex. Thats a nice name, and easy to say.

urbanCeilidh is the word used (as a name) for one of the most interesting and enjoyable people in the world. Origionally used to describe a party, now used to describe a person that makes you feel like you are partying all the time. Ceilidh is the best person a man could strive to be with...ever! Who doesn't want to feel like they are part of a party each day?

urbanWow, that was one hell of a Ceilidh! Ceilidh's, nothing but god times!

urbanpronounced 'kay-lay', its pretty much a scottish folk dancing party where every one joins in in a kind of orchestrated dance and has muchos fun! the expresssion 'to get ceilidh'(kayleyed) meaning to get very drunk could possibly come from all the drunken frivolity that takes place in these mad scottish parties of the same name.
