    I like it, but I find myself mispronouncing it in my head. Kress-trel, Kess-tell, I don't know why. That being said, I think it would be lovely and fresh on a little boy or girl.

    I really like it. It's actually on my list of 'dream names'. I can't decide if I like it better for a girl or boy though.

    I like it and think it could work if it's paired with a very "normal" middle name.

    When I think of kestrel I think unlovely bird, windswept, unfriendly and no personality.

    Thanks for the continued feedback! I definitely see Kestrel as feminine, but seeing that last year 8 girls and 5 boys were named Kestrel, it could totally go either way.
