  • "People that do not know me assume female automatically. Whether mail, email, phone message, it's always "Ms". Never assume... if not sure, just use "Kerry". I was named Kerry in 1954, the assumption above being my only complaint." Mar. 31, 2021: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love Kerry as a boys name. If you worry about people who believe it is not masculine; consider using Kerrigan as the given name and Kerry as a nickname. Then the child can decide which the prefer in any situation." Sep. 24, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am a male named Kerry, I am now in my 60?s and as a child I hated it, but then as a young man I liked it because it was different, now I?m older I don?t like it anymore! Personally, when I look back over my younger years, I believe my name held me back, especially as I?m quite a shy man anyway! I almost felt ashamed of it sometimes and only now I am considering changing my name to something similar, Maybe ?Karl? I would love some feedback, thanks for reading this." Jul. 21, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "Hi, my first name is Kerry. I?m a male, 66 years old. As a boy, I was inclined to want a more masculine sounding name - like John or Joe. But, I?ve grown to like my name. Yes, people don?t seem to forget it." Apr. 25, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "KERRY IS NOT A BOY YOU FOOL SHES A GIRL.. WELL AS FAR AS I KNOW :/" Jan. 31, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "I'm a Kerry and have never had a problem with the name - although I am now 6'5" and 270# and I was always bigger than the other kids. I just use it as an ice-breaker when I meet someone for the first time, "I'm named after the county in Ireland. We're not Irish, my folks just liked the name." They may forget my last name but never Kerry." Sep. 10, 2006: Report as inappropriate
