"Named my daughter Kinley Anita! Not too many females in WV have this name" Oct. 10, 2018:
""I named my daughter Kynleigh Raen (sounds like rain) in June of 2006. When I named her that I had never heard of the name. I actually took my cousin's middle name McKinley and took of the Mc, thinking I had made her name up. Now that I see how popular it is, it saddens me that her name isn't as original as I thought. But the name still fits her and I still know I made the right choice. Oh and to the person that wrote that the name "isn't cute at all", please don't be jealous that your parents didn't love you enough think outside of the box and give you a name as unique as we did."

"I named my daughter Kinley Elaine in 2011 before it became EXTREMELY popular! I love it, it suits her great, I liked it because it was unique, but now it has became extremely popular, which is disappointing because I wanted her to be the only little girl in my town with the name /: but it's still an adorable name & I love it! I don't like the other spellings though I think they are tacky!" Apr. 22, 2014:
"My name is Kinley Naron. I was born in 1998, waaaaay before Kinley became "trendy". Growing up, alot of people called me Kinzie, McKinley, Casey, and more. I pronouce my name more than one way. I've met one girl with the name Kinley that had the same spelling. My parents named me Kinley after an Olympic figure skater- her name is Tinley, but my parents heard Kinley! To be honest, I love my name :)" Jan. 11, 2014:
