I knew someone who had the surname Kienle... If you needed a Creative spelling, there it is. (As an aside, I would use it as an honor name for him)

Sounds too much like a nickname.
Also seems like something that will rise and fall quickly in popularity, leaving Kinley the next Shirley or Jennifer.
