It's a boy's name.
I am a female born in 70. My name is Kyle, middle name Kim. I sometimes go by Kylie. Or Kim. And sometimes people make off comments about it being a boy's name. Most people say they love Kyle on a girl. I don't really care what anyone thinks. But for those that are really mean about it, I respond that only narrow minded people can't appreciate the name on a girl. Or they say, my grandson's name is Kyle as they laugh. I respond, well, your grandson has a girl's name. That shuts them up.
I once worked in the same office as a woman named Kyle. I met her because I received a package for her and told the delivery person, "I'll call him and let him know," and he corrected me, "Actually, it's 'her'." Later she came up to collect her package and that's how I found out Kyle is a unisex name!

I have never liked the name Kyle. It is way too trendy and it doesn't age well at all. It sounds incredibly childish and I can't imagine anybody over the age of 30 called Kyle. Also, all of the Kyles I have met were truly nasty people, and I personally have never met a decent person with this name.
Kyle is a boy's name ONLY and is definitely not for girls.

Such a manly and attractive name. I seriously am considering this name for use.
It's fine as a boy's name, but too masculine for a girl. Use Kylie instead.

Nice.
I know that Kyle should be unisex, but in my book it’s a boy’s name. It doesn’t sound bad on a girl, it’s kind of feminine. With that being said, it’s all boy to me. It would be unique to be a girl named Kyle, but yes. It might be confusing, especially when she has a boyish middle name paired with it that will really lead her to gender confusion for sure. Kyle is a cute name, but for a boy.
Man boy name.
I definitely think that Kyle is one of those names that should be simply kept masculine. If you really like this name, please just use a variant like Kylie or Kyla. It could become very confusing for a girl who has a boy’s name.

This is a nice classic name for a boy. You can call your child whatever you like, but if you give your daughter this name, she will be teased.
Very masculine name. I love it. Reminds me of someone who works in business or a CEO type.
Very boring.
I became aware of the name Kyle after the Terminator movie also but I didn't name my son "after" the terminator. I named my other son Conner - which I heard from the Outlander movie for the first time. Again, I just liked the name after hearing them. They have a Celtic sound. Of course, people in my age bracket thought I named both sons after the Terminator because of the Kyle character in the movie and the woman's name was Sarah Conner. Duh... who would name them after the movie. I named them that because I heard the name for the first time - as Kyle was not a common name at that time - and I simply liked them. I think Kyle is a nice name. It was a common name in the 90s to name your child.
Beautiful name mostly because it's my name, lol.
It reminds me of bacon- wonderful.
The name Kyle reminds me of Kylo Ren from Star Wars. I think it sounds very masculine and attractive.

I'm also a girl and my name is Kyle. I've hated it for years, and wanted people to call me by a nickname. I've recently gotten used to the name Kyle, after finding out that it can be a girl's name too.I really liked that there was a girl named Kyle in Child's Play 2, until then, I thought it was only a boy's name.
I know several women named Kyle. I don't like this name as it's very dated but I do agree that it sounds more masculine. But then again, the names Avery, Ashley, Logan, James, Riley were once used for boys but are becoming unisex. I guess Kyle is headed that way. But Kyle isn't a name I like for anyone born today. It really sounds like a boy from the 80s.
What is so feminine about the name Kyle? That makes me sad to think that it was just a boys' name, although I'm female with a unisex name as well, but Kyle? Wow. It's like naming a guy Kyla. By the way, I have a character named Kyle from my series. :) Very sweet and adorable, as well as agile and flexible.
Sorry, but this name is so dated from the 80s. The few Kyles I knew growing up were short and kinda punks. Never liked the name.

Logan Kyle
Morgan Kyle
Nolan Kyle
Sebastian Kyle
Shannon Kyle
Thomas Kyle.
My boyfriend is named Kyle and I fell in love with his name. It is so easy to say in many ways. I wouldn't call my daughter Kyle because every time I say or hear it, I imagine a strong man, but I am not saying that it is not a great name for a girl too!
I am a fan of this name :))
Kyle Bloodworth-Thomason, better known as Kyle the Conjurer from Nickelodeon's "Fanboy and Chum Chum" is a bearer of this name.
A bit plain and boring in my opinion but it's still a decent name. I find it to be a lot more interesting than many names out there today.
Well the name Kyle, for a girl, has worked for me for nearly 50 years. I was born WAY back in 1967 and have been named Kyle ever since and back then NO ONE had unusual names! I rather like it for this gal! It was NOT a name that my folks picked for the baby regardless of if I had been a boy or a girl. It was their GIRL'S name. So, it is a great name as far as I am concerned. Just sayin' :)
When I get older I'm going to name my kid if it's a boy Kyle. I love this name so much. I don't know why but a lot of people hate this name! I love everything about it, How it's spelled I love the sound of it as well! I do recommend this name.
I like this name for a boy. However, I'm not going to name my kid Kyle. And why would you give this name to a girl?! It's not flattering I would rather you name a girl Kyliee. Kyliee is way prettier than Kyle for a girl. But for a boy, Kyle sounds like a great name!
I named my son Kyle as there was a hero paratrooper and I thought he was so noble and when I looked at him I just knew Kyle would be the perfect name. At the time I didn't realize everyone else was naming their baby's Kyle too, unfortunately. I remember going to the highland Games in Montreal Quebec and he was two years. I had to call him as he was running around and realized that several other children of approximately the same age stopped in their tracks, they were also named Kyle the poor moms and I just laughed it off, one even said Great Minds, eh?
It's so common for boys but it's okay I guess. You'd have to be crazy to give this to a girl though. Why on earth would you name your daughter Kyle when you have the feminine versions Kylie and Kyla?
So dated and boring. Most Kyle's are predictable jerks. Forget it. Move on.
Kyle is a little bit of a plain & boring name, but it's a cute, nice name for a guy nonetheless.
Common, common Kyle. Everyone named Kyle is 27 now. Just such a trendy name that you can pin-point to a certain time. If it stayed more classic like Ryan it would be cooler. But it didn't.
I knew a Kyle who was a horrible person, a liar, a cheat and used girls then dumped them... to say that a NAME makes you wholesome is just plain naive.
The most beautiful and caring boy, loving and sweet 'Kyles' are the kindest men alive they're so heart warming. If you ever get a Kyle, never let them go, because you will regret it when you realize they're the sweetest, kindest, cutest men on this earth.

Kyle as used in Ireland means, from the straits, or the narrows. My great grandmother, several generations back, immigrated from Ireland. Her name was Mary Kyle. Her son named his first girl Kyle and it has been a girls name in our family for 4 generations before. Me and my daughter and granddaughter both have the name as a middle name. I hated the name at first, because no one in the South can pronounce it correctly. It rhymes with smile, also vile, as someone else said. I like smile better. Until I was in high school, I had not known anyone else with this name, until I met a boy whose last name was Kyle. Since then, I have only met a few women named Kyle, but many men and boys. These days, couples are naming their children gender crossing names. In college, people told me it was unusual and they liked it. I am unique, so I thought that was great. Now the name is hardly unique. I still love it!
The name is actually unisex, not masculine only. See here-> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyle_(given_name).

I hate the name. It's overused and boring. It's even worse on a girl. What part of it sounds feminine? I will never know.
I love the name, Kyle! I don't care how many people share it. It is still an awesome name. Also, some people I talk to think that it is pronounced with one syllable, but I think it is two syllables and sounds better that way.
There is a female character in Child's Play 2 called Kyle.
My name is Kyle and I like it just fine. But it is kind of annoying how many Kyles there are. I'm in college right now, and one of my roommates is Kyle, it gets very confusing, we even work at the same place!
Okay, I know a girl named KYLE. Is that really rare?
I really think it's pretty, though, on a girl. Kyles that are girls are always special people.

Well, I don't know how famous she is but on America's Next Top Model there was a contestant named Kyle. She made it pretty far in the competition. I think it was Cycle 6 (2005). She made me LOVE that name for a girl.
My name is Kyle and I am a girl. It's taken me a long time to really like my name. It's quite different when a girl has this name. Most people who comment on it like it. But I've also had many people either give me weird looks or say they aren't a fan. But for anyone who is thinking of naming their girl Kyle, please don't. People teased me a lot growing up and it's just a pain when people ask if its short for something or if it's pronounced Kylie. They just always have to comment on it. And next time anyone meets another girl named Kyle, please be nice and say you like it or just don't comment at all.
Kyle sounds like the name for a tree or a plant - also it rhymes too easily with vile - not a good choice.
This is a very cool name; perhaps for youth. I can't imagine though, and old man named Kyle.
The name sounds very good for a boy! I am using this name for a fan character!
Very nice name!
There is a character in "Dunstin Checks In" named Kyle.
I used to like this name very much, but now I think it is just okay. It is getting to the point of being overused, which I don't like very much. At least it's not in the top ten, though, but its popularity seems to be increasing.
Actually, I take that back. It's growing on me.
It can be a girl's name too! My snowboard coach's daughter who looks scarily like me is named Kyle. Though, personally, I like it better for a boy. I've known some very odd but generally sweet boys named Kyle.
I'm not a fan of this name. I don't like the combination of the 'K' and later the 'l' in the one syllable.
If "Kyle" (which I used to like but am now ambivalent about) were derived from "caol", then it would be pronounced "keul" (like the French "neuve") in Scots Gaelic or "kayl/keel" in Irish.
My boyfriend's name is Kyle and I've really grown to like it. Although I won't be calling our future kid Kyle, it has a nice ring to it.

My name is Kyle, and I have experienced over my lifetime how popular this name actually is. Every where I would go I would find that there would be several other Kyles along with me, this getting very confusing. Nevertheless, I am proud to have this name!
All of the other women with the name Kyle (that I've met) were born in the middle 1950's. We were named after an Irish soprano named Kyle McDonald who was a panalist on Xavier Cougat's game show. All of our mothers thought that her name was pretty.
Thanks so much to the person who posted about "Kyle Macdonald". I also wondered where those female Kyles born in the early 1950s came from; I went to high school with two of them! By Googling I discovered the TV celebrity's name was really Kyle McDonnell, and she was called "Miss Television of 1948" by TIME magazine:http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0531988/bio
