Etymology & Historical Origin of the Baby Name Kyndall

Kyndall is an Americanized modification of the traditional English surname Kendall (obviously an effort to feminize it up a bit). The surname-turned-unisex-forename 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 older 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 image of praise.

Popularity

OF THE GIRL NAME KYNDALL

Kyndall is a new name coinage used almost exclusively by Americans. Although it was influenced mainly by Kendall, other “kutesy” K names most likely inspired Kyndall’s creation as well (the charts are riddled with them): Kaylee, Kylie, Kayla, Kinley, Kinsley, Kelsey, Kenzie, Kaelyn, Kenley, Kayden, Kailee, Karsyn, Keyla…and the list goes on. Kyndall is such a new invention that it’s much too soon to assess its likely endurance, but the name has increased in usage in the past couple years (although this particular spelling remains rare). Right now K names are extremely popular for American baby girls, neck and neck with M names (surpassed only by A names). Not to mention the modern American parent’s notorious penchant for “kreatively” respelled traditional names. Such trends help bolster interest in names like Kyndall.
