I know a young male Kelsey who wears it well. Just because there are female Kelsey's doesn't mean there can't be any boys.

there's always that older guy who KEEPS his name despite the girls "taking" it, and I respect it. Here's to the male Sidneys/Sydneys, Lindsays/Lindseys, Madisons, etc.

I actually prefer Kelsey on a boy. So what if the name is almost completely feminine? People use 'almost completely masculine' names on girls on a regular basis, so how is this any different?
