I recently met a girl whose name is Kearny/Kearney (can't remember which - pronounced CAR-nee). I looked it up and it's listed on Nameberry as a boys' name. I just think it's a neat name, and was just wondering what you guys thought of it.♡nadia♡a teenage writer and long-time name junkie

I dislike anything that sounds like "carny" on either boys or girls.
But I am an old fart and dislike 99 out of 100 surname-names.
Just ran it past my DH, he says it's the name of the bald bully kid on the Simpsons? http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__...y_Zzyzwicz.png

I like it, but I would pronounce it keer-nee.
A similar name I like is Keaveney, pronounced keev-en-nee. Or Kenneally. I like names of that sort.

I originally thought it was pronounced ker-nee, which makes me think of colonel, or a corn kernel. But the actual pronunciation sounds a lot like "carny" which is derogative slang for someone who works in a circus, carnival, or in the old days, freak show.Amedeo Enjolras Aristotle Leonardo Archer Olivier Mischa Liam Caspian Benedict Theodore FitzwilliamRosalie Evangeline Mirabelle Ophelia Alice Elisabeth Stella Titania Artemis Cicely Margarethe Thalia Astrid
