    The name is okay. It may be a tad too cutesy, but there are much worse possibilities out there running around in the world. I had a friend in early elementary school named Kiri. She had three older sisters and a brother all with K names. I can't remember them... Much more ordinary than Kiri though.

    I say go for it.

    If Keri is perfectly acceptable as a given name all on its own, I don't see why Kiri would be too cutesy. If you love it, go for it. I personally prefer Keira, though.

    I had a student named Kiri last year (Kiri Eleanor actually). It fit her to perfection! She was a slightly quirky teen, but in a good way. I totally fell in love with the name. Yes, she had trouble with people mis-spelling and mis-pronouncing it, but once people met her they got it really quickly. It's awesome!

    Thanks for all the responses so far!

    I'm glad to see that it works in real life (even if it's used as a double barreled name). Kiri Eleanor is lovely!
