"My daughter?s name is Kial (pronounced Kyle). She is named after my cousin Kyle who passed away in 2006. We have never met another female Kyle." Aug. 30, 2020:
"My name is Kyle. I have no problem with my name, but it?s the comments that come along with it. Most don?t expect a girl or they have say sorry honey did I say it wrong! If they do think it?s a girls name before they meet me, they pronounce it Kylie or Kyla. There is also me meme of a white guy punching dry wall and drinking monster, everyone assumes that I?m the same just because of my name! I have never meet a another girl Kyle before and would love too! I know too many guy Kyles." Jun. 2, 2020:
"I am also a girl named Kyle (now in my late 30's). Love the strong sense of it and gender neutrality. Many will mistake it for "kyle". It can get annoying when people expect a man or think I'm trying to use my husband's credit card." Mar. 16, 2009:
"I'm a female Kyle - born in 60's - and had a lot of people call me Carol or Carla... now the question is more "how do you spell that?". I haven't run into another female Kyle until this summer... I think it's a cool name for women :-)" Jan. 6, 2009:
"I love my name :-) I'm a girl and every one is always like "Oh thats so cool I've never met a girl Kyle". It's fun but sometimes it gets annoying when people are like "Oh did I say it wrong" or "Oh I was expecting a boy!" a lot of people call me Ky, one of my friends spells it Kial and some have spelt it Kyelle. A lot of people misspell it but whatever I like it for the most part" Aug. 4, 2005:

"My name's kyles because in 1998 doctors told my mom I was gonna be a boy & obviously I turned out to be a girl so she kept the name so & gave me a girl middle name. Ive grown to like my name but growing up everyone called me kylie or questioned my name now that I'm an adult it makes me feel unique" Feb. 18, 2021:
"Our first grandchild is going to be a girl!!! They are naming her Kyle, after our son, as our daughter-in-law is named after her father, who is Shawn. Our heritage is Scottish...so the name is fitting! 👶🏼" Jun. 10, 2020:

"I am a Kyle, born in 1956. I grew up with unusual name and super lucky with a cool name. The last 8 years or so people have become more and more ignorant. I have met other Kyles and a good friend name her daughter Kyle." Nov. 10, 2019:
"My daughter's name is Kyle, named after Lee Meriwether's daughter...I understand the misconception that Kyle is a male name, but some should be respectful and open to, should I call it, diversity? I've never appreciated being call Ed Marsha😁" Jun. 30, 2019:
"My name is Kyle and was born in the late 50's. People can be so uninformed. So annyonying when people constantly say they were expecting a man or accuse me of using someone else's bank account or credit card etc. Love seeing more females with this name." Feb. 9, 2018:
