Give me a nickname?

My name is [name]Kyla[/name] and I do like it but I feel like I am getting too old for it. It’s very cutesy and I’m a very serious person. For a nickname people usually just call me [name]Kylie[/name] which I’m not a big fan of. Any other nickname ideas? I like [name]Kay[/name] but I’m not sure if it’s too different from my first name to work.

Thank you

I think [name]Kay[/name] would work fine, and it’s a very nice, underused name on a younger person! You could also go with [name]Kyle[/name] for the unisex factor. What is your middle name? Maybe that contains more nickname possibilities?

I don’t think [name]Kay[/name] is too much of a stretch at all–your name contains all the letters to spell it K-a-y, and in addition your name starts with K so to me that’s enough to go by [name]Kay[/name] or K. But if it doesn’t seem quite right to you, maybe you’d like just [name]Ky[/name], or maybe [name]Kya[/name]? (I realize that [name]Kya[/name] and [name]Kyla[/name] seem very similar, but I think [name]Kya[/name] is just a little more serious.) Are your initials at all helpful to make a nickname?

I would probably shorten your name to [name]Ky[/name] (like [name]Kai[/name]) or [name]Kya[/name] (like [name]Kaia[/name]).

Phonetically, you could get [name]Isla[/name] from [name]Kyla[/name], maybe? (Although if you think [name]Kay[/name] is a stretch that one probably is, too.)

I don’t think [name]Kay[/name] is a stretch at all, but I automatically thought [name]Kye[/name]. I think whichever you prefer should be fine!

I think [name]Kay[/name] works really well

[name]Kyla[/name] is far from cutesy to me.

[name]Kye[/name] ([name]Kai[/name])
[name]Leah[/name] (A bit of a stretch)

[name]Kay[/name] is easy because it’s your initial.

I like [name]Kay[/name] a lot. I was going to throw out [name]Kiki[/name] too, because it seems spunky to me. Maybe you’d like it too.

I would go [name]Kay[/name]. It’s not heavy or contrived but its more classic than your other options.
