This is such a cute name for a pet! This name can also be for girls.

My name is Kirby and I'm a girl. I used to think it was a strange name but now I like it because it's unique and people always say it's cute.

Kirby is a Nintendo character. A cute little round ballish looking creature.

I like the name Kirby a lot for boys, but for some reason I hate it for girls. I also imagine a court jester with this name. But that's a good thing, I guess.

I LOVE this name! However, I do agree with property of Jesus; this name sounds HORRIBLE for girls. Also, it is Scandinavian. It just became so popular in England most people believe it originated there.

Doesn't a guy named Kirby Morrow voice Miroku for the English dub of Inuyasha?

I don't really like this name, it sounds too, I dunno. Reminds me of furby, and I think that word is a bit strange.

I like it but I'd be hasty on naming a kid this, especially a boy, because of the Nintendo character.

It might have sounded fine as a name in the past, but now it brings to mind that adorable little puffball from the Kirby video games.

Kirby Anderson is a prominent (male) Christian Speaker.

Please do not use this name for anybody. On a dog, maybe, but not for a human! This sounds too cutesy and trendy for a given name, for either gender. I cannot envision a President Kirby or a Judge Kirby or some other important figure.

I like this name for boys only. Kirby isn't a good name for a girl.

I would never name a child this, because of the Nintendo character. Kirby sounds nice, though.

I used to go to high school with a girl named Kirsten but we called her Kirby, because of the same starting syllables. She never really cared for the nickname too much.

I knew an adorable little girl named Kirby. I LOVE this name for a girl or a boy. And I remember the Nintendo character! Also adorable!
It's such a different name but it sounds like it could be common- I think people would get used to it pretty quickly if they met someone named Kirby.

Kirby is one of the guys in the movie Sons of Provo (it's not his real name).

One of our cats is named Kirby. He was named after the popular childrens toy, Furby.
I like this name only for a pet (dog/cat). I just can't see it on a person.

Kirby Puckett was a Baseball Hall of Fame center fielder. He played with the Minnesota Twins during the 1987 and the 1991 World Series.

I love how quirky this name is, somehow being equal parts cowboy and equal parts video game, it even kinda sounds like the word quirky.

Captain Kirby York the lead character in John Ford western "Fort Apace" later promoted to Lieutenant Colonel Kirby Yorke in sequel "Rio Grande" was portrayed by John Wayne in both films.

Kirby was the name of the vacuum cleaner in the film "Brave Little Toaster" and it's straight to video sequels. Obviously a reference to the vacuum brand.
Vesey  3/17/2013
I knew a girl in high school whose sister's name happened to be Kirby. I was a little surprised at first as I had only heard of it used for the cute, pink character called "Kirby". I don't mind the name; it sounds quite nice. I can't imagine the name "Kirby" being strictly reserved for just one particular gender group really...

I never thought this name could be a boy's name. The only Kirby I knew was a female character from Dynasty.
Kaat5  3/15/2015
For me, this name is a lot more masculine than feminine.

I think Kirby is such a cute name, especially for a girl. I could totally see a girl named Kirby who is more of a tomboy, or who is cute and awkward. I personally imagine someone named Kirby as a girl who is unique and quirky, yet someone you can't help but love.

Kirby is the main character of the eponymous franchise. The franchise is known as 'Kirby of the Stars' in Japan. The character's debut was in the 1992 video game 'Kirby's Dream Land'.

The name Kirby was given to 53 boys born in the US in 2015.
HerculePoirot  6/21/2016
This is my first name. I'm female. My parents chose it from a character in Dynasty and growing up I never liked having this name. To me it just sounded weird! As I've aged the name has aged with me. I'm now proud I'm called Kirby and not some other name that everyone else seems to share! My personality has always been tomboyish, quirky and unique. I've never been one to follow the crowd and I think I owe that to my name.. quirky name, quirky personality! I love it!

I think this was the name of a character (male) in a movie, the dumb friend of the main character, and all I remember when I think of it is people saying "Go home Kirby" or "Shut up Kirby".

Kirby is the name of the alien baby from Disney's Chicken Little.

Kirby the lil' pink puffball... I love it! Ironically for the Nintendo character, it kind of sounds tough and burly. I would actually use this for my son (Although it may lead to allusions to the character. But hey, what can ya do? My name is Mario, so if I named my son Kirby it would start a long generation line of children being named after Nintendo characters, ha ha!).
