Meaning:narrow; strait; confidence; reliance; trust
Kyle is a gender-neutral place name rooted in the Gaelic word caol, meaning "slender" or "strait." Though long considered a description of Kyle of Lochalsh, Kyle may find more fitting origins in the ancient king, Coel Hen, who perished in the surrounding wilds. It's a fitting theory which instils the modern-sounding Kyle with a regal air and invigorating qualities. After all, staying within this newly claimed territory uncovers an alternative root in the Old Welsh coel, which means "confidence," "reliance," or "trust." So, whether your little one elects to stay on the straight and narrow or brave the untamed wilds, they can do blessed with absolute assurance.
