    i think the name Devyn blows Kierstyn out of the water. although i dont really think either goes with McKenna. i love the name McKenna though

    I agree with your DH. Although I don't like the spellings for either first names (& my son's middle name is EVYN).

    I think of Devin/Devyn as a boy's name (sorry)...and I've always thought the name Kierstin/Kierstyn was really cute!

    I said neither, but if I had to pick between the 2, Kierstyn. I knew a Devin (girl) couldn't stand her, she was SO annoying.

    Kirsten looks prettier, and is easier to spell...the other spelling looks weird.

    Devyn sounds like a boy's name

    I agree with your hubby but I dont think you should use either name unless you both like it. You both have to live with it so you should both like it. Ask him to make a new list of names he likes and see if you like any of those choices. That is what my husband and I had to do, and we were both really happy with the name we chose.

    How about Kirsten Devyan McKenna? Nothing wrong with two middle names. Then she can decide which she likes better when she is older.
    The spelling of Kierstyn may make people add another vowel sound.

    Keira, McKenzie, Makenna, Mikaylee, cutes names that start with K's and M's. Mikayla is my daughter's name. Everybody has named their daughter Mikayla right? I love Mikaylee though!
