Kennedy is an amazing name. After nameing my first daughter Kennedy, choosing a name for our second daughter was disapointing. Nothing could measure up to such a powerful name as Kennedy. So we settled for Madison

We named our youngest son "Ethan" after a character that John Wayne played in the movie "The'searche's" - had NO idea what a popular name it has become. Dad's a huge John Wayne/Western fan - our oldest son's name is Shane - after Alan Ladd's movie "Shane". They're great solid names...and so far haven't met any boys his age with his name!

My name is actually Kennedy! I don't like it at all but know I hate it even more because I just found out that it meant "helmeted chief = deformed head". Super mad at my parents ❤️❤️

I gave my daughter the middle name Kennidy after her granfather Kenneth. He was very pleased and i think it is a beautiful name.

My daughter's name is Kennedy spelled Kenadi she was born in 2018 and is a confident strong willed nine year old,she plays tackle football with the boys and holds her own. She is also soft as a marshmallow and tears up at sad movies loves the outdoors and all the creatures that live there. She as all the other parents have said about their kids is one in three hundred million.

I named my daughter Kennadi. I get so many compliments on it. Kennadi Rae. Just be prepared when they begin to talk, Ks tend to be hard...and your child may tell ppl her mane is Hennesy. It was a cute mistake.

I love this name, we named our first daughter Kennedy, and I'm seeing a trend, she too is a natural leader, quite the girly girl, with a big personality, but is very petite as well. Lol I loved it because It'sounded classy, and Femine. Kinda like our generations " Katie" ,

I named my daughter Kennedy in 2009 because I was looking for a unisex name. When'thinking about her name I also thought about her future; I didn't want whoever'saw the name on a resume or paper to know if it was a male or female. I felt it was a strong name, and she totally exemplifies the'stren'th and leadership that it represents. We don't run across too many Kennedy's her age which is awesome. She is a unique individual!

09/28/2023 17:14:50

I plan on naming my child Kenadi Danielle. If it's a girl, of course. But that wont be for a few more years. :]

09/07/2023 05:10:42

I think it is adorable if it is spelled Kennedee for a girl. :)

My 8 year old carries this phenomenal name. I was inspired by two newcomers to her brothe's daycare class. It turns out one was a girl and the other a BOY. We switched up the'spelling to ensure her uniqueness. She's my KENEYDI!

07/22/2023 04:56:20

my name is kenedy. And a boy,hate this. everyone was like asking my name but never told anyone because you know the meaning.

I named my daughter Kennedy in 93, after doing extensive research on the meaning. It is a Ancent Gaelic name meaning "Helmeted Chief" It is a term used in the Christian Wars that refered to the leaders of a tribe who led their villages into battle. They were identified as such by the fierce warrior helmet worn, thus becomming a "Kennedy" or a "Hemeted Chief" and feared by all around as the bravest of leaders. So for the person who left their comment who said Ha Ha. Be careful of the next Kennedy you make fun of and "Avis le Fin". It is the motto of all ancient Kennedys. It is Gaelic and means "Consider the end". And by the way my daughter LOVES her name and I couldn't picture her with any other name. She is a Softball Catcher. A modern day "Helmeted Chief" HHMMMMM❤️

My daughter's name is Kennedy, She's eight years old. She's a natural born leader. So the name'suits her. She's beautiful inside and out. She is remembered pretty easily by people, I think its the name. I just love it. On occasion we've gotten a raised eyebrow when we say what her name is, but nothing too major. I was so happy I didnt have to come up with another girl name-what tops Kennedy❤️ We had a boy thank God. : )

We named our "little surprise", Landon on May 15,2015. Our older'son, Logan, told us he had been praying for a baby brother (he didn't let us in on this until I found out I was pregnant). We're so glad we have him and I think Logan and Landon sound great together. Landon is a strong name and It'suits him perfectly! It was also the only name my husband would agree on. My father-in-law is the only person that doesn't care for that name, so he calls him Jake...

I'm naming my daughter Kennady Rose. I'm spelling it differently but I love the name

05/14/2023 10:09:54

I love this name. It's strong but feminine. This is my neice's name and she'spells it "Kenadi". So pretty!

03/17/2023 04:08:08

My name is Kennedy. Most people think It's spelled "Kenady" since there is a girl that has the name'similar to mine. People doesn't really call me by my name'since I'm a twin so they'd go by my last name. I'm grateful to have Kennedy as my name because It'sounds elegant (even'though I'm quite the opposite, but I'm trying to improve). Be thankful to be called Kennedy because our name is one of a kind!

03/04/2023 07:50:46

My name is Kennady my mom wanted to make it more feminine.

12/29/2022 23:09:58

My Eight year old daughter is called Kennedy and she loves it , as do I.When she met another girl called Kennedy she was so excited, the other girl thought she was the only one in the world.

11/01/2022 05:58:08

Don't do it...this was a 90s trend. Now It's being viewed as a stripper type of name. The trend is just over!

10/25/2022 01:09:44

I named my daughter Kennedy in '95, it is a named that is stong,confident, and commands respect. Over the years i've met at least a dozen Kennedys (one of which a boy). I'm quite happy with the name'selection as is she. It'suits her well.

Our daughter's name is Kennedy and despite her very petite size at 4 she has a huge exuberant personality. The name carries alot of expectation with it. We have found that it is growing in popularity but that it is unique and lends to broad acceptance and many people comment on the'suitability to our tot.

12/08/2021 23:57:36
