Etymology & Historical Origin - Kendyl

Kendyl is an Americanized and “feminized” modification of the traditional English surname Kendall. The surname-turned-unisex-first name Kendall developed from one of two place names in England. One, the town of Kendal in Cumbria was so named because it lied in the valley of the river Kent. The name is derived from the river’s ancient name “Cunetio” paired with the Olde English “dael” which means “valley” (i.e., Kent Valley). Or from a place called Kendale in Driffield (northern England) which derives its name from the Old Norse “kelda” meaning “spring” and “dalr” meaning “valley” – translation: valley of the spring. One of the oldest surnames on record, Kendall dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086. Another possible etymology for the name could be derived from the Welsh forename “Cynddelw”. Although the meaning is uncertain, it’s thought to come from the Old Celtic words for “high, exalted” and “delw” meaning “image, effigy”. In other words, an "archetype" or perfect example of something.

Popularity of the Name Kendyl

Kendyl joins a growing list of respelled versions of Kendall – all of which are female rather than unisex. In fact, Kendyl only just joined the party in 2011. The gender-neutral Kendall is fast approaching the Top 100 list of most popular baby girl names nationwide, so we weren’t surprised to see spelling variations emerge. This is what many American parents like to do. Put their own creative spelling stamp on an otherwise highly popular or trendy name. Respellings are a trend in and of themselves. This type of naming style is definitely not preferred by all, but it’s certainly fashionable in some circles.
