  • Like it for a girl not a boy and not sure on the Ley, I would just use Lee.

  • I think Kendall is a beautiful name. I've never heard it for a boy, but there are a lot of gender neutral girls are Taylor and Riley:)

  • I too am going to name my baby after a father...for a girl i am going to use's different I think but not too strange. I hadn't thought of Kendal...I think that is cute too but i know too many people by that name. I also thought about Makenna but my daughter's name is Makayla so i thought it might get confusing with the names being so similar.

  • i like kendal for both..i knew a guy named kendal...for a girl, why dont you name her Kendal Whitley instead of Kendal Ley? i think it just sounds so pretty..Kendal Whitley. i too am naming my 3rd daughter after my best friend.. Trinity Grace. Grace is my bffs middle name
