Etymology & Historical Origin - Kinsley

Kinsley is the transferred use of an English surname originating from a place name in West Yorkshire.

As a female personal name, Kinsley is an American invention.

Popularity of the Name Kinsley

Kinsley is a pretty new invention. The name only first appeared on the U.S. popularity charts in 2005 and has managed to climb over 600 positions in less than seven years. We’re not sure what prompted the debut of this offbeat name; perhaps it’s an alteration of Ainsley. More likely, the name’s current popularity owes itself to the hyper-popular trend of using surnames and androgynous sounding names on baby girls. There’s not much one can say about Kinsley – it’s far too new to know where it might go from here. We would assign this one to the “cutesy” category of names.
