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.

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. :)

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.
LOVE MY NAME

I am a girl and think Kendall is a girls name. I used to really dislike it growing up, but love that I have a different name..
The name has history

I am a male with the name Kendall. It is originally English and male. It is known presently to mean "from the river Kent". Our family has it meaning "man from the Kent river valley".

The first born males in my family have always been named Kendall. It goes back to the 1400's. (in our family, name is actually older) My family originated in the Kent river valley. It is in western England near Wales. Yes my last name is Welsh taken from the Welsh people that lived near there.

I have many family mementos including the Kendall coat of arms. I do think it is fine for girls to have the name. It would still carry the name on to future generations.
