Jenner. Not a useable name in this day and age.

TechnoKitten Says:


Sounds like the female variation of Kyle,I like it.

ericakatherine Says:


I'm angry that I like this name lol. When I first heard of Kylie Jenner I was surprised to see such a young woman with that name since most Kylie's I know are in their forties. There are a lot of Kylie's in Australia but I think it would stand out if you named your baby it

ashleyisabellalaaaa Says:


I love the name Kylie but I can't get over the Kylie Jenner connotation

alyssum Says:


It's so cute, but finding out that it's the name of a kind of boomerang that doesn't even come back when you throw it (thanks, QI!) kind of puts a damper on my enthusiasm.

Zelliew Says:


I don't mind this name but I've only met one girl called Kylie

Jinxgirl Says:


Kylie is cute but I also have a hard time seeing it on a grown woman, even though I know a few grown Kylies

Zoey_Artemisia Says:


It depends on where you live. In Australia, the average age for someone named Kylie would be 40+ and the name is barely used on kids anymore. I personally have a hard time seeing it on a young person.

JessicaRK467 Says:


I have a hard time hearing this name on a grown woman. It just sounds like a cutesy child name to me...grandma Kylie?

Zoey_Artemisia Says:


My mothers name is Kylie. I think it would be a nice middle name in honour of her.

Guest Says:


A perpetually young name but it's so cute and spunky. It's like a new Kelly.

ahoymccoy Says:


Kylie is also the name of one of the characters in Alice Hoffman's book Practical Magic. In the movie, she was played by a young Evan Rachel Wood. Personally, I didn't like Kylie very much before I read and watched Practical Magic, but now, for some reason, I consider it to be a really good name.
