Gender: M Meaning of Kellen: "swamp; slender" Origin of Kellen: German; Irish Kellen's Popularity in 2016: #609

Kellen is German in origin and Irish in spirit. Kellen has fallen a bit in popularity for boys since its peak in 2012, but it has possibilities for girls too. In fact, Kellen's similarity to such feminine names as Helen, Ellen, and Kelly might make it a tough one for a little boy to carry, though the macho image of Twilight actor Kellan Lutz will help with that.
