Someone named their daughter Kendyl as a female alternative to Kendall. I like it!

I think Kendall is a great name. If I had another baby I would call it Kendall. There is also a shop called this.

My sister's name is Kendall and she doesn't appreciate it because it isn't a very common name. My name is Ashley, a very common name, and it frustrates her whenever I get a pen or pencil with the name "Ashley" on it, and she can't find her name, "Kendall."

I hate this name. It's probably because of Kendall Mint Cakes. They look disgusting, they taste disgusting; you're tempting fate if you call your child Kendal, cause they could end up the same!

Another meaning for this name could actually be "handsome ruler of the valley". The name Ken means handsome ruler and the name Dale means valley. These two names together could actually be the origin of this name.

I like this name, it's an alright name. But when I was just thinking about it, I realised it sounds a lot like "candle" or "Ken-doll".

Kendall is my name and personally I love it. It is unique, and it is not a "boy" name or a "girl" name. This name goes to someone with class, grace, beauty, confidence, charm and style. So if you don't think your baby can handle the name do not name them this one of kind name for a one of the kind person.

I love Kendall, but only if it's spelled Kendyl.

The second season of Veronica Mars introduced a, not very nice, female character named Kendall. It's better as a male name.

I always think of Ken Doll when I hear this name.
-- Anonymous User  11/13/2006
I personally like this name very much for a girl. Not a boy though.
-- septsweetie99  11/16/2006
This name is cute, but it reminds me of a candle.
-- Taydbug112  12/19/2006
I know a young boy named Kendall. It is a nice name and very unique. I would personally never name a girl this though. There are only a few names that can fit well with boys and girls and this one is not it.
-- Anonymous User  2/2/2007
I think of Ken Doll, too, when I hear this. It makes me think of plastic Barbies. But I still like it.

I personally think that the name Kendall is blatently a masculine name, no ifs, no buts. It's true that I favour some boys names that were never meant to be unisex, and use them for a girl. However, since I know a male Kendall, and the popularity for the male Kendall went back many years compared to the upper tenacious boys-names-on-girls trend that so many people are consuming, I don't want to be brainwashed by this newfangled fad, and accept something that really wasn't meant to be. What is wrong with naming a girl something strong that is meant for that gender? I just wonder what will become of our generation when all of the masculine names will be used up. Then, we'll have Axels and Lyrics, and Cashten, and Slashyrs running our countries, and Thomaslynns, and Parker Maries have our children! What a pretty thought.

I do not like this name because it sounds and looks ugly. I would never, EVER name my kid this. No offense to the Kendalls out there, because all the Kendalls out there are probably nice and good people. :D
-- Anonymous User  7/18/2007
Kendall isn't even feminine at all. It's butt-ugly. Kendall for a boy however, can have the nickname Kenny or Kend.
-- spaz123  8/29/2007
My name is Kendall (I am a girl). I used to hate my name when I was younger because I thought it was so weird. Plus the kids used to call me Ken-doll! But now that I'm older, I love my name. I think it's beautiful and unique. When I tell people what my name is, they always say, "Oh, that's such a cool name!" I am proud to be a Kendall! :-)
-- Anonymous User  8/30/2007
I'm a 17-year-old female with the name Kendall and although I used to think it was boyish and embarassing, as I got older, I embraced its subtle femininity and emphasised it with a graceful presentation and signature. Yeah, I get the "Ken-doll" and "candle" pokes but those usually come after praise. I'm very proud to carry such a name. :)
-- Anonymous User  1/4/2008
I think that to label any name as "butt-ugly" or otherwise truely depends on the way in which the name is carried by the bearer. As for the name Kendall, I think that it can be a beautiful name for a girl in addition to being a boy's name. I know a Kendall who loves her name and embraces its masculine side by using the nickname "Ken" but also offers "Kay" or simply "K" as an option.

I have heard of this name in different ways. I have heard it as:
Kendall
Kyndall
and Kendyl. I personally like Kendall best.
-- Patricia Underwood  2/5/2008
It sounds like 'candle', even though there's a difference between 'e' and 'a'. To me, this name is strictly masculine and sounds bad on both girls and women. It would sound very unfortunate on a cute little girl, and it wouldn't be a cool name for a young woman either. On a more mature woman, this sounds awful.
-- slight night shiver  4/25/2008
My name is Kendall, and I always want it to be! It's the best name I could ever ask for and any girl would be lucky to have their parents name them this! I will love this name even when I'm an adult!
-- drpepper  7/4/2008
My name is Kendall and I adore the name. To have it be called "butt-ugly" or categorized in a solely masculine category is very offensive to me. Before attacking a name, please try to keep in consideration the person behind it.
-- Anonymous User  7/6/2008
I HATE this name. It sounds like "Ken doll"!
-- bananarama  7/9/2008
My name is Kendyl, and to be honest I'd change my name if I could get away with not hurting my mom's feelings. This is not a female name. I get addressed as mister in my mail and phone calls. As a kid they called me Kenny because they felt it was too hard for me to learn or other kids to understand. And as I grew up, it's always been a nightmare to have to spell, pronounce, and explain my name to others. People never remember it, and if they do, it's something like Candle, Kettle, Kennel, Ken Doll, Kendra. It's really a horrible name.
-- ewgerms  8/25/2008
I LOVE this name, it is mine, and my mom changed it from Kendall to Kendyl. I love how uncommon it is, and how very little people in my town and school (none in my school) with my name!
-- kendyl_bunny  9/21/2008
I prefer the spelling Kendyl - much more feminine and tons cuter! : )
-- WilderThanBridget  10/26/2008
I find it kind of funny that people are coming up with "Ken Doll" from Kendall, because it is very random. I mean, you could do similar things with pretty much any name. Wasn't there a model on the last season of Project Runway who had this name? I personally think it is cuter for girls, and I really like the name, especially because it is unique! Unlike my name. :(
-- teensyalmond  6/3/2009
What about this name sounds even remotely feminine, and why is it suddenly so trendy for girls? It sounds like Ken Doll and Candle, as others have pointed out. I'm not overly fond of it for a boy, but at least it sounds better on a boy than on a girl.
-- Anyechka  8/7/2009
I lOVE Kendall on a little girl! I think it is beautiful. My pastor's daughter's name is Kyndyll but I hate that spelling. Kendyl is the only other one I even think is acceptable. I love Kendall. :)
-- --allison--  8/15/2009
I've always thought this was a masculine name, but my friend's niece is named Kendale, so I think it could be cute for a girl. Doesn't age well, though.

This is my (female) cousins name. I guess it's alright. You can't really call it beautiful though, if you understand what I mean.
-- Chrila96  11/5/2010
It's cool for a guy!
-- Chrila96  12/6/2010
I don't like this name for a girl, I've known two couples who named their girls this and they're super pretentious! They should have picked a more feminine name for their girl. I'll never name my child Kendall, sorry, don't like it!
-- Anonymous User  5/1/2011
I love, love, LOVE the name Kendall for a BOY, hate it for a girl. And it isn't unique for a girl, I know four girls named Kendall, not that unique if you ask me. I know one male named Kendall, and he's all boy.

My male friend's called Kendal, it's not unusual nor strange but everyone adds the extra 'l' to it which annoys him.

The meaning sounds so poetical and lovely. I like it for a boy :)

The name Kendall is AWESOME and I should know cause that's my NAME. Some people say that they hated it during their childhood or that it's more for guys- but being female, I have had absolutely no problems with this totally unique name. Even since I was a kid, I've had people who have been jealous of this beautiful name. So I have no idea what some of these other people who have been commenting are thinking about it being a "butt ugly" (yeah, I read that comment) or about it being only for guys. Kendall is one of the best names EVER and I don't care who disagrees. You hear me?! I AM PROUD TO BE A KENDALL. I AM PROUD TO HAVE SUCH A UNIQUE AND SPECIAL NAME! I WILL ALWAYS BE PROUD AND BLESSED FOR HAVING SUCH A LOVELY NAME THAT IS NOT JUST FOR GUYS! So, if you are thinking of naming your kid Kendall-whether it may be for a female or a male- go for it. In my opinion, I could not have been named better myself.

I don't see the appeal of this name. I've never met a girl named Kendall who liked her name.
But I suppose it's better than Kyndall.
-- Icycoldhot  8/20/2013
My name is Kendall and I personally emphatically agree with the posts by people for whom the name is unattractive.

It is my surname and I dislike it. So much in fact that I have spent years thinking of changing it now things such as my name are no longer under parental control!

I'd like to hear any suggestions for alternative surnames which others like and find attractive.

Please post!
-- vapourmile  4/2/2014
I love this name. It's not a typical girls' name but is not weird or anything. I don't even know why I love it so much but I do. I have always wanted to name a daughter this but my sister wants to also so it looks like we may be fighting over the name some day!
