Origin:Gaelic
Popularity:479
Meaning:narrow, straight
With a mash-up of Scottish and Irish roots and derived from the Gaelic “caol” (meaning, narrow), Kyle is a favorite of parents who want a strong yet stylish name for their child. It doesn’t discriminate when it comes to gender—it works for 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star Kyle Richards as much as it does for hunky 'Bloodline' actor Kyle Chandler. If the unisex thing isn’t appealing to you, it’s easy to feminize the name for a baby girl by going with Kyla or Kylie.
