This makes me think of the Kinsey Scale, which basically where you measure your sexuality on a scale from "heterosexual" to "homosexual." I happen to not land on this scale (I'm asexual), so I've always found it over-simplistic and slightly confusing. The name itself is okay, but I prefer Ainslie, which doesn't have this association.

This is such a pretty name. A girl I once knew had this name, and it really suited her.

RissaHelen Says:


I can't help thinking this name has a sexual connotation because of Dr. Kinsey

Kibby Says:


I always think of the doctor, who ran some very questionable experiments in the name of medical research.
