In class we have 2 Kyles(both are guys).I see them as two very differnt people.This makes me think the name can fit anyone with little to no stereotyping.
I agree that Kyle can fit anyone with little stereotyping. Kyle was the name of the guy that gave me my first kiss and also the name of a guy that was a bully in middle school.
I've known two Kyle's; one I disliked when I was a kid (who was born in the early '90s), and one I currently like very much (who was born in the early '80s). The Kyle I currently know is very charming, cool, confident and sexy, which is how I now think of the name. I think how people percieve a name is just based on kinds of people they've known with it.
