It's a really pretty name. If you wanted a nickname (even though it's a bit of a stretch) you could use Kenzie or Kenna

rubylayla Says:


I think its a pretty and unique name. I think if you did want to use a nickname that Lee is very feminine (more than masculine) however neither me nor my sister ever used shortened names. I like my name and wouldn't want to shorten it and Kenley wouldn't need to shorten hers either!
