Do you like it for a boys name or do you think it is too feminine?

I do like Kelly better as a boys name, but it was popular for girls for so long that I probably wouldn't use it.

I know a few Kelly/Kelley guys. I dont think its too feminine at all. Though I think Kelley is more for a boy, whereas Kelly or Kellie is more for a girl.

My name is Kelly Lynn, I do think the name can go both ways though! I know a man named Kelley, he is very good looking!

I personally wouldn't use Kelly (in any spelling) for a boy although I don't think it sounds too femanine.

Kelly was a boys name before people started using it for girls. I still think its a good name for a boy, I know a few IRL.

I was just thinking about this today. One of the names I'm considering is Kellen and I was wondering if we'd end up calling him Kelley and if that would bug me. It kind of grows on me....Kelley for a boy is so old fashioned that I think it might actually sound cool again????

Kelly is originally a male name.
I like it for a boy.

I know it's originally for a boy but since it's been used so much on girls I think of it as a girl name now.
