Comments for KESTREL:

I sorta like this name. Could be the name for a brown haired, waifish, skinny, bird-looking girl. Cute!

In a book trilogy called "The Wind on Fire Trilogy" the girl main character's name is Kestrel. The author is named William Nicholson.

I think this name could be used for a boy as well as for a girl!

A very ugly name. I guess it's the combo of s, t, and r following each other, but this just doesn't sound pleasant. And it ends in an 'l'! Too many consonants and all.

My best friend is named Kestrel and I think it's a beautiful name.

I really like this name. I think Kess or Kessie would be a really cute nickname. I'm not too fond of the meaning though.

Kestrel sounds weird on a person. Most bird names don't work as human names. Would you name your kid Pigeon, Ostrich, or Flamingo? Certainly not, I hope!

Personally, I think the Old French root of this name, Crecelle, would make a better given name! Kestrel is rather harsh.

I really love this name. I would seriously consider it for my daughter, if (and hopefully when) I ever have one. I can't quite explain why I like it so much, it just make me smile when I say it or read it. Plus it's unique, but not stupid. Kestrel, to me, is simply beautiful.

I first fell in love with this name reading "The Wind on Fire" Trilogy in middle school and I'd love to use this for a daughter.

I picked this name for my character in an online roleplaying game and it has actually really grown on me. I love the nickname Kes/Kess.

I don't find it attractive. I might be crazy, but it makes me think of... gastritis!

I actually prefer this name for a boy and love it there. It's sort of similar in sound to Cassius - another favorite of mine - but with the same sort of imagery I get from Peregrine. But I also love Kester for a boy, which I think could easily be used as a nickname for Kestrel :)
