While Kyle is a gender-neutral name, some parents prefer its more ladylike counterpart, Kyla. That little A softens the name’s sound and makes it distinctly more feminine. It’s for parents who want to give their daughter a simple name that’s easy to pronounce (it’s KYE-lah—there’s little chance someone will say KILL-lah) and that’s part of the K-name trend. Actor-comedian Damon Wayans named his daughter Kyla, while Vince Vaughn used it as his daughter’s middle name.
