The name Kipling is a boy's name of English origin. Kipling and is often added to user-created lists like Names of Nobel Prize Winners and discussed in our forums with posts like "Generation CAF #5".
From the experts:
Kipling calls to mind writer Rudyard (b. Joseph) Kipling, author of the stories familiar to schoolchildren Gunga Din and The Jungle Story. Certainly, Kipling is a friendlier name than Rudyard these days, complete with cute short form Kip.
