Thoughts on Kestrel?
It's a bird name that doesn't get mentioned around here too often. I like it, especially with the nickname Kess. What does everyone else think?~ Catholic. College. Communicative Disorders. ~~(updated 11/3/15)

It's a bit 'out there'. I have a bird name. Once dated a guy named Gabriel who made a point of the fact that he was named after an angel, while I was named for a common bird...I dumped him. At least your bird is uncommon.

To me it's very obviously a bird-name which sort of puts me off.
But at the same time I'm sort of drawn to it. It's equally as soft sounding as it is harsh.
Not long ago I did hear on another naming site of a little girl named Kestrel who apparently loves her name.much love and i are waiting for you;

Pehr Nicholas / Cedric Dylan / Virgil Ossian / Robin Ingmar
Rosemary Oona / Annabel Briar / Sibyl Damaris / Alba Madeline
Iseabail Honey / Fenella Thomasin / Jemima Eilidh / Raphaela Maude / Margo Celandine / Sylvia Moon

I usually dislike names like this that aren't really established as names, per se, but this one I like. And the nn Kes makes me think girl (after the character on Star Trek Voyager - yeah, I'm a nerd).Mom to Sylvia Caron and Linus Roman
