i named my daughter not realizing how popular the name was becoming but i still love it, it will always be original
I love my name too!
written by Kendra Hughes, March 06, 2008
Just like a lot of you... I too thought my name was rare. LOL...not so much anymore! I'm 30 and have only met a few others named Kendra. However, it seems like everywhere I turn now there's someone who has a friend, daughter, niece etc named Kendra :-) I usually ask if it's spelled the same way ;-)

Now, I'm going to have my first child and I'm faced with the daunting task of finding a name thats just as unusual and special :-)

I also thought my name was rare and I was named after my father as well who's name is Kenneth. I am a mother of 3 and a Grandmother of 1. I named my oldest after me, and her name is Kendria. I believe that is a rare name as well.
WHAT A BEAUTIFUL NAME!

She loves her name. I only met one other Kendra. I like that its not overused YET. I have a hard time finding things with her name on it though. But I love her name none the less.
This name is prettty sweet!
written by Kendra McGinley, May 25, 2008
I remember when I was little I didn't really like my name because it was so different. Then I came to love it because it was different, but now that it's becoming more popular it's losing its individuality. However I have still yet to meet another Kendra.
daughters name
written by Sondra Trease, June 03, 2008
When we started trying to have a child many years ago I wanted our child to have something that would say love to us. My husbands name is Kenneth and mine is Sondra. We took Ken from his and dra from mine and the n joined the two toghether Ke"n"dre. Our daughter LOVES her name and she is now 15 and thinks it is great how her name came about. She feels special and loves that she is the only Kendra in school. Her first, and two middle names have special meanings. I am now trying to find a special name second middle name for our soon to be adopted son. I am so glad to hear that so many girls love this name. I hated my name growing up but love it now even though have a hard time finding anywhere. Unusual is great, it make the personality come out in the child/person.
I have a love/hate relationship with the name Kendra!
written by Kendra Susan, July 06, 2008
My name is Kendra Susan. I was born in late November of 1963. Youngest of 7 children w/names all beginning w/the letter "K". My mom tells me that I was named in recognition of John F. Kennedy, who was assasinated a week prior to my birth. Although I like the story behind the name chosen, I haven't always liked being associated with the name. Growing up in the 60's and 70's, you never heard the name Kendra. It didn't seem to grow in popularity until the late 80's/early 90's. Not only did I have an unusual first name, but I also had an unusual German last name. It was a double-whammy for sure! A lot of friendly teasing went on, but sometimes it grew tiresome. Since I was a bit of a tomboy growing up, people use to call me Kenny. That, I really didn't like! As a little girl, I always wanted a more feminine name like Tiffany or Stephanie!

Sometimes people just can't seem to get the name of Kendra right. I've been called Kenya, Sandra, Brenda, Kimba, Kenda, Linda and Kindra!

Now that I'm in my mid-40's, I have definitely embraced the name, but I still get odd looks from people when I introduce myself as Kendra. Just food for thought! :)
i love my name

my best friend is named kendra
written by Christina, July 17, 2009
she lurrrrrves her name!
is my name too
written by Kendra, July 20, 2009
When i was younger i HATED my name because while all the other kids came to school with pencils & rulers with thier names printed on it i could never do that because the name was so uncommon.

I was named after both my parents
Kenneth & Debra, My mom thought at the time that she had made it up (this ovbiously isn't the case)

because i disliked my name so much i would often go by "Kenii" which all my girlfriends would call me and when i started dating in high school i had a boy call me kendy which at the time i thought was much more girlie than Kendra

Now im just happy that im not named sarah or jessica like every other girl
Love my name
written by Kendra, August 29, 2009
My parents were/are Kenneth and Anne. So I am Kendra Anne. My mom thought she made it up just like some of your mom's obviously she was way wrong.
I don't hear it very often and a lot of the time I get asked "are you black?" not that that's a problem but its funny because when I graduated high school I actually got a scholarship because they thought I was based on my name... my mom and I got to the church and we were the only 2 white people there. Quite a memory...and a funny one at that. I like my name because it's different and yet still something you don't hear every day. I'd like to find a name like that for my daughter if I have one. I did not like being called Kenny either... I'm like HELLO... it is KENDRA.... that's it.. Just plain Kendra.
It is an honor to know there are so many other Kendra's out there.
my name...
written by Kyndra, September 26, 2009
i like my name..its spelled a wee bit different than this one. everyone spelled it kendra which annoys me a little...its KYNDRA...with a Y id always tell them..now i just spell it for them before they can misspell it. there's a lot of kyn's in my family..kyndella, kynetha, kyndra, kynden, and of course my two girls..kynslee and kynnedy. most of my friends call me kyn..doesnt bother me much..and a lot of people around here, i guess not hearing the name much, always thinki say sandra. i have a niece who was named after me spelled kendra. i like my name spelled differently though..makes me feel one of a kind lol

I love my name, I'm 28 years old and I was name after my father kenneth. I hated my name when I was little but as I grow up I started to like it more. I have meet 2 other Kendras in me gym class when I was a kid one was teaching the class and the other was in her class. Then I met one more when I was a older in a mall and she cut me off I thought it was funny. I can belive how poplar the name has become.
