    Smile Kell Andrew

    We have a two-syllable English last name and are considering the names (first and middle respectively) Kell Andrew.

    We've mentioned Kell as a first name and heard a lot of Kale? Cal? or just Kell? Kell? Kell? It doesn't sound too exotic to me, but things come across differently to different people.

    What do you think?

    It sounds like "kill Andrew."

    Hmm, my first thought is that the first and middle run into each other, and it sounds like Kelan Drew, Kelan being a name I've actually heard. It's Irish I believe. Yes, here's Kelan:

    Second thought was that it sounds a lot like kill; and finally, that it reminds me of Kal-El (Superman). None of these thoughts are important if they don't matter to you, they're just passing thoughts someone may think when they hear your sons name.

    I can see the appeal of Kell, but it sounds a little too much like a nickname. I'd personally find a name that Kell could be a nickname for if you really want to use Kell, or else find names that feel similar.

    I really like Kellen/Kellan, but not too sure about Kell. Of course Kellen + Andrew + a 2-syllable last name doesn't have the best flow....

    Cole or Cael would be nice.

    Kell seems a bit of a middle name short of Kelly or other Kel- sounding longer names. I'd go longer by going by a last name like Kelvin. Alone it does seem a bit affected. I'm not sure what your last name's first initial is. With Andrew or any other vowel starting middle name, I'd take a second look at the initials (ex. KAD or KAT).
