Comments for KINGSLEY:

Kingsley Shacklebolt is a character in the Harry Potter books.

This is a very cool, tomboyish name for a girl.

I don't mind boys' names on girls, although it's sort of sad when they become popular. But the King part just makes this way too masculine for me, and I don't think most young girls would want to bear such a name.

I absolutely adore this name, and Kingsley Shacklebolt is such a great character in the Harry Potter books. It's completely cool and masculine. I love it! Terrible name for a girl though, in my opinion.

Naming a girl Kingsley makes about as much sense as naming a boy Queensley.
-- WhitePhantom  8/13/2007
Meh, this name is just okay. Actually, Queensley sounds awesome, especially for a boy.

I don't like this name for either sex, but it's positively awful for females. The name is very surname-y, and it sounds masculine even ignoring the obvious fact that it has the ''king'' in it, which seems weird on anyone female.

It's hard for me to imagine anyone having this name who lives outside of the UK.

First of all why can't you imagine anyone outside the UK having this name? Second of all this name I really love! For a boy or a girl, it's so lovely on a boy and I can just imagine a little tomboy girl (or even a girly girl for that matter) having this name, suiting it and loving it! This name I would consider as a middle name for a future child and possibly as a nickname instead of their first name.

This name in my opinion is strictly masculine. I mean, it makes no sense to name a girl KINGsley. But for a boy, this name is awesome!

I think the name Kingsley would be quite fitting for a cat. It sounds great and it is cute!

Seriously if you insist on naming a girl this, she will hate your forever. The number of female names way outnumber male names, so let's just leave it to the boys.

This reminds me of Ben Kingsley. Plus: I love the way it sounds. It rolls off the tongue so easily. I can't wait to name my future boy this name.

This name remind me of Kingsley Shacklebolt, my favorite Harry Potter character. Who I love from the Order of the Phoenix.
But it's a nice name too for a boy.

Kingsley Russell is a Youtube celebrity with over 1 million subscribers to his channel.

Why would anyone name a girl this? Aren't the first four letters obvious enough to show that it's not feminine? It's a rather dumb name anyway.
-- Buneary  11/4/2012
Seriously, almost every name I come across on this site, no matter how manly it is, has at least one comment saying "this could also be a boy name," no! Are you doing that just to be annoying?! I'm not going to even take the comments saying Kingsley can be a girl name seriously. But, for a boy, this name sounds really snobby and high class. Also, I knew a pit bull named Kingsley. I like it a lot for a dog.

To me, this doesn't sound like a boys OR girls name. I really hope that people aren't using this just because it was in Harry Potter. I would never name a child anything starting with King. It sounds so faux pretentious.
-- SlimHobbit  4/2/2013
I am a woman who's middle name is Kingsley, and I have never even considered it to be "too masculine" for a girl. It's a very old family name that I am very proud of. As a lover of nature I have always been proud to have a name given to the person who cares for the king's land. I think it's a noble name of a hard worker, not pretentious. Honestly I have never considered it to be anything but pretty cool and a nice reminder of my English heritage of which I am very proud. Even though it has the word 'king' in it, it doesn't mean that it is strictly for boys. It never influenced my femininity, it has only ever given me confidence that I am unique and carrying a really awesome family name that I plan on passing on to a future child, boy or girl.

Definitely a males name. No doubt! It has king in it for crying out loud!
It would be like calling a male a queen.
