I know a girl and she'spells it Kyndell...which i think looks alot more trendy and alot more 20th century
I named my daughter Kendall in 2001. I love the name.
My 5 year old daughter's name is Kendall. She loves her name & obviously we do too! We get lots of compliments on her name as well Kendall Madison.
Not only does It'sound and look ugly (way too close to "ken doll"), but It's just too trendy and meaningless. There's no history, culture, or story with this name.
I love that my name is Kendall. I do get irritated when people spell it wrong, but I enjoy having a unique name that not many othe's have.
love it! My little sisters name is Kendall! she is 7 and the cutest ever
My name is Kendall and I love it no one has my name around here and I think its awsome
Kendall is a beautiful name! my 7 year old daughter name is Kendall Evangeline, and we love it!!
I was born in the mid 60's and have the name, "Kendall". I haven't always liked it b/c I could never find my name on mugs and stuff. However, now that I am *cough* older, I really appreciate the uniqueness and funny feeling I get when I hear it pronounced b/c you don't hear it all the time. I do think the Kardashians, All My Children, and there was even an evil dude in a children's flick named Kendall have helped people like it more. I think you grow into whatever name you are given. It's a wonderful name to have and to share. :)
this is the best name ever because is mine and my father gave it to me
Hey, I'm the female Kendall. Our name is unisex. & unique. I know a male with the exact same name as me, he is like you, not fond of having the name Kendall. Because I hate to break it to you, it sounds like a girl name:) Or maybe I am simply stating that because I couldn't picture a boy with a name tied to me, (a female). I say, call yourself Ken, and smile. :)
My name is Kendall Rose and I like my name because it means "river valley". I like the fact that it is associated with nature. I think of it more as a girl name than a boy name.
HI'my name is Kendall and I like the it very much. The word is balanced out with two L's at the end. I'm glad my parents didn't name me Kendal.
my best friends name is kendall and i think it is totally unique! its not pretty or ugly or anything like that! its just plain awesome! i think that name is unique just like her and i love it!
This is what i want name my baby but i want to know the meaning
My name is Kendall and I love it. Sometimes it gets irritating when people say "candle" but you get over it. Its a unique name and I have never met anyone else who has it! I have also had people name their kids after hearing my name!! I have come across different meanings such as "chief of the royal valley" and "from the bright valley"...very cool meanings! 2 L's always.
My sis's name is Kendall Grace. luv it!
I am a male and my name is Kendall, I have known 5 males named kendall and one female. I detest my name and further more detest the degenderization of it moreso. By the way a mother whose idiocy was to name her daughter Conner did so becuase she felt it was gender neutral. Problem is society is there are no barriers anylonger, nothing is sacred unto men anylonger not names not clubs not universities nothing but its fascinating how women keep names keep all womens athletic clubs keep womens colleges stc. No Kendall is not a female name and it doesnt sound female, a vowell at the end of the name would feminize it, but al;together this name bloody sucks.
I love the name Kendall and plan to use it one day if my husband agrees but I once met a little girl who spelled it Kendyll which I love.
its my 10 yr old sisters name and i DEFINATELY wish it were mine! my names kaley... yawn!
i really like the name Kendall for a future daughter, but im afraid that its not frilly enough for a little girl.
I like the name Kendall even'though some people might think your name is Candle, but whatever, I like the way the letters are arranged and It'sounds so nice if you say the 1st syllable on a high note and the 2nd syllable on a lower note.
This name came in as a close second for my daughter but I gave my husband a choice of two names and he chose the other. I first remember seeing this name on the soap opera All My Children as a female character in the early 90's. That is probably when it gained popularity as a girls name.
