Yes, my name is Keyla. I'm only a teen but I have not yet met anyone with the'same name as me. Many people say it wrong when'they look at my name and it takes them a long time to learn it. Took one of my teache's a half a year to finaly say it right. I pronounce it as it is spelled the way you say Key, as in a house key and la, like in music. People often'think it is Kayla or Kaiyle. But I do enjoy my name because it is unigue and people love my name and say it is beautiful everytime they hear it. Even'though I get annoyed with how much they get it wrong. But I think Keyla is a good name to name a child, you dont find many Keyla's around, not like Chris's and Ashley's. And this is the one out of a few sIt's that actualy show the name Keyla as a name for a baby. From youre good friend, Keyla

My name is Kendra and I love my name. I never thought it was anything special when I was growing up. I used to wish I had a "pretty name" but now I like my name because it Isn't that common. (although It's much more common that I ever realized growing up) i've been called Ken for short and lately a lot of my friends have taken'to calling me Kenny.

01/14/2024 00:00:00

My mom named me after her grandmother - Katie, who she adored. Everyone who meets me who hasn't heard the name Kendra before always complI'ments me on what a beautiful name I have.

My name is Kendra, and I never really liked it (even'though I had gotten many compliments over the years). Now it is becoming more popular, and I like it more. My sisters and close friends have always called me Kenge, which, funny enough, I like!

My nicknames are Ken, Kenny, Kendy and my mom calls me Kengy. I read on her'someone elses nick name is Kendy, I thought that was pretty neat.

11/25/2023 12:59:26

Kendra is my name and I love it. I again thought that it was a stupid name but in the last couple years I have learned to love it. I am not named after anyone in my family my parents just liked the name. I know 3 other people with my name. I have many nicknames like Kennie, kenna, ks, kendy, and leash(which has to do with my middle name(Alysha)).

11/20/2023 09:33:26

06/24/2023 19:30:34

My name is Kendra, I was named after one of my mother's cousins. I love how unique my name is and the meaning of it fits me to a "T". The only thing I didn't like about my name as a child was that people would try to shorten in to "Ken" or "Kenj" and You'really can't shorten girl name to a guy name when you are 12. i've adapted two nicknames I like very much, "Kay" and "K-Lou".

06/22/2023 20:46:52

I like my name too. It's unusual, but not weird, and it has a good meaning -"knowledge" and "wisdom". People have complemented It'saying It's pretty, and they tend to call me "Kendra", rather than other'shorter form.

06/11/2023 16:10:00

My Daughters name is Kendra and ironically like a previous blogger'she too was named after a girl I knew is grade school. My father's name is Kenneth who I am extrmely close with, thats how her name came about. I love it , it is different but not a tongue twister , strong yet feminin.

05/26/2023 01:03:56

I think its a rare name and thats what I like. I am hispanic and the name doesn't sound hispanic to me. So instead of family members calling me Kendra they all call me Keka. Which is better than Ken or Kenny.

05/22/2023 20:21:38

It's MY name...and when I was little, I always wanted to change it. But as I got older, people always commented on how pretty it is. And it is. It's a name that can "grow up" with you! :o)

05/13/2023 08:53:26

I'm a Kendra...very rare that I'meet another "Kendra". i luv the meaning and aspire to live up to it (among other things).

05/10/2023 01:50:04

04/02/2023 03:57:16

As a Linda, I didn't want an "in" name for my children. I loved the name Kendra because it comes from the olde English word "ken" which means to know. Kendra means woman of knowledge or seeker of knowledge. And it is a pretty name. My daughter though did not meet another Kendra until she was 8. She came home from camp thrilled to death to have met another Kendra.

02/22/2023 15:40:26

02/19/2023 02:26:46

I'm in my 40's and am named Kendra. I was named after my father, Kenneth. I never liked my name because it was so different. Lots of my friends call me Kennie or Kaye. I was the only one in my school the entire time I was growing up in the 70' and into the 80's.

02/05/2023 13:41:56

I'm a Kendra ... there aren't many of us out there, but that's what makes it more special when you meet one. :) My siblings call me Kenji and some of my friends call me Kenny or Kenny-d-ra, though I prefer to be called my whole name. My mom chose this name because of its meaning of "wisdom" or "understanding" (a tough one to live up to), she liked how It'sounded, and she knew a girl in college whose name was Kendra. i've always liked my name and i've never experienced problems with spelling (an occasional "h" is added to the end by some people). The only difficulty i've had with my name is when people of other nationalities try to say it, they sometimes have a hard time with the 'dr' sound.

01/02/2023 14:09:26

My name is Kendra. I especially love its meaning; "understanding". My dad chose very well.

12/25/2022 08:22:12

I'm 12 years old and my name is Kendra. The boys at my school call me kenken ( it is very inoying). I like my name but when someone says it wrong I get mad at them. I thought when I grow up my name won't fit me but now I know it is special because there aren't that many people with it.

08/23/2022 22:51:00

Kendra is my name and i love it! none of my friends have that name and they always wish they had my name instead of theirs. My friend aly, her full name is alysandria, says she wants me name. I truly love my name. I get all of these cool nicknames like kazy, k, and K-Mac. My middle name is McKenzie and that is how i got the nickname K-Mac.

08/22/2022 00:11:06

My Name is Kendra and some of my friends call me Kengy, or Kenji, I got named after my Grandfather. His name is Kenny. I have never met another Kendra before, so I thought this site was cool to look at all the other Kendra's. I like my name, but if I had the chance to, I would change it.

05/02/2022 16:23:06

My name is Kendra and I never had any problems with it. Growing up I rarely heard the name, until I'moved and there was one other girl in my school who shared my name during high school. I hear it once in a while, like today when I was at the deli they called two Kendra's at once, I was a little confused. I think the name is unique, but not weird. It is a strong name and It's pretty. I don't think It'sounds flaky and people take me seriously because of it. Of course once in a while my close friends call me Ken, Kenji, Kenni, but I don't mind. Overall, I love my name!

02/18/2022 23:28:48

Kendra is my name and I absolutely adore it!!! Good thing I wasn't a boy, or else I would have been stuck with Kendrick :(

11/29/2021 06:38:06

My name is Kendra [Saskia(Russia Sauce-kee-a) Cockayne (like the drug)] i didnt fully appreciate my first name and how wonderful it is until I got older. My first language was German and i could never pronounce it well so i hated it. But now that i only speak english i realise how pretty it is. I love it, its a great unique name. I really like that no one else has my name because it makes it less confusing (like everyone is named Sarah) and adds value on to my name. Everyone always compliments on my name. My nickname is Kenny, but i really like my full name.

11/05/2021 03:26:24

My names is Kendra and I love it. When introducing myself over the phone, people sometimes hear Heather, Kenya or Ginger. When I repeat it, they always say that's a lovely name. Have any of you experienced this❤️ Friends call me Kenken, or just Ken. My aunt named me, but not sure how she came up with the name. I have met 5 other Kendra's in my lifetime. I always search in Outlook at a new job to see how many other Kendra's work for the company.

10/15/2021 01:26:42

My name is Kendra. I was born in the'seventies. My mom's friend in High School's name was Kendra and she liked it. People think I was named after my Dad Kenneth. I go along with it, daddy's little girl.

07/28/2021 15:17:24

I love my name I think its really cute and original. Some my friends call me ken, but I don't like that at all. And so I love my name'so much and I think my parents couldn't have chosen a better name :~} Kendra We gave Kendra a name for two reasons. First, it means "wise women" and she entered the world and would look into her eyes. We all had a feeling that this was not her first visit to the world. Also, we also really liked a band from San Francisco called the Dream Syndicate. One of the founding members was Kendra Smith.

07/19/2021 18:05:42

My name is Kendra and I always thought it was a boring nothing special name. My friends all have nice names i've always wanted. I realized It's beauty and how unique and popular it is.
