"I named my son Kennedy. He's 7 now and I still love the name. The reason behind the name is my Grandfather was named Kenneth, he was the most wonderful man. I wanted to name my son after him but felt Kenneth was a little old fashioned so I came up with Kennedy. My son is just like his great-grandad. Handsom, kind, caring, funny and clever.
Everyone seems to love the name. Everyone seems to know who he is, he stands out in a crowd (for all the right reasons!) I don't know if it's his name or his personality but he is certainly one of a kind! We have yet to meet another Kennedy!" Feb. 23, 2011:

"my name is kennedy, i really enjoy the fact that my name is very rare. so far in the 21 years that i have been alive i have met only one kennedy, but i think this was a nickname base on my own popularity. often over the phone or any kind of official name enquiries people ask whether or not kennedy is my surname, i always have to correct them. other than that, i have no problems with the name. anyone else a kennedy?"
