Kendra is not Irish for "water baby". That is ridiculous. Honestly, where do people get this stuff? It doesn't even resemble our words for "water" or "baby". And it isn't even spelt at all like an Irish word! We don't ever use "k"s, only "c"s.

I had never considered the name Kendra until I met a little girl with this name. She is as cute as a button. It is a cute name and one a child could grow up with.

I always think of this as a strong name because of the slayer on Buffy!

I think that Kendra is a beautiful name and one that can grow with a child. It is just as easy to imagine a little girl named Kendra as it is a grown woman, which I think is a very important thing to think about when naming your kid.

My wife's name is Kendra. I had always thought it was an African-American name until I met her. When I did some research I was very surprised.

Kendra sounds very manly to me.

It's not masculine-sounding, but ugly it is. I just don't like the -dra ending, and come to think of it, the Ken-beginning is also crap.

It sounds like a klendra. It means "winter" in Czech.

I'm not sure how accurate this meaning is or isn't. It seems a modern name and I've NEVER heard it associated with Kendrick (which seems kind of ugly). I've seen other meanings elsewhere and with name lists often having inaccuracies, it's hard to know what to believe. I think most people would consider it a feminine version of Ken, which more people would assoiciate with Kenneth than Kendrick. Not really sure though. I like Kendra and Kenneth is ok, but not so fond of Kendrick.

I love the name Kendra! It's so unusual. I'm pretty sure that's what I'll name my girl if I have one!

This name is very ugly and masculine-sounding, but at least it beats the "names" Kennedy and Kendall. It's still ugly, though.

One of my best friends is named Kendra and I always saw the name as really feminine especially after taking Latin. Did you know that the -a ending is used for feminine Latin noun in the first declension? And truthfully I don't see how in any way shape or form that the name could be masculine, but hey that is just how I think.

This name sounds either really ghetto or white trash.

There was a murder victim on a crime show I was watching named Kendra, and for some reason, ever since then, all I can think of every time I hear Kendra is 'dead body'.

I used to like this name, but then in college I met a girl named Kendra. She's one of those hypocritical Christians who is just really, terribly, horrifically annoying. Ever since then I can't really like the name.
