Royal and British sounding to the ear.

Personal experiences with the name Kingsley: | Edit

We named our son Kingsley in 2011 before it shot up in popularity the next year. We love it because it is so unique and uncommon, but still traditional sounding. We call him King for short and have received nothing but positive feedback about his name, though we almost always have to clarify when meeting new people. Some common ones are "Keen" and "Kink" but the weird looks disappear when we spell it out or describe "like King Arthur or king of the hill."
