as a First Name

See Kyle as a last name

Of Scottish origin but now widely used in the English-speaking world. It is derived from a topographic term denoting a narrow strait or channel and in part is a transferred use of the surname, a local name from the region in Ayrshire so called. As a girl's name it appears to have been largely superseded by Kyla.
196th in the U.S.
