Comments and insights on the name Kirby: | Edit

I absolutely LOVE the name Kirby!! It's adorable, and really unique. Plus it's my name so :) I love my name & never want it to change. I'm so thankful my parents named me Kirby, I thank them everyday for an awesome name! (maybe not, but I love my name still.) Haha :)

- I am also a female named Kirby and am very much proud of my name. I am not sure if it is becoming more popular but I was born in 1985 and growing up in my generation the name was definitely not common. It has been a lot of fun to see the positive reactions people have when learning my name. If I could I would name my baby girl Kirby Jr.
