Kyle is a male English-language given name derived from the Scottish Gaelic surname Kyle, which itself comes from a region in Ayrshire, Scotland. The name has its origins in the Gaelic word "caol," meaning "narrow," "sound," or "strait". It is believed to have originated as a description of a person who lived close to a strait or narrow waterway, and in Scotland, it is typically associated with the location of Kyle of Lochalsh in the country's west. The name Kyle became popular as a given name over time and is now used in many English-speaking nations. In addition to its Scottish origins, the name Kyle has also been used in various cultures and languages, indicating that it may have numerous roots. For instance, in Arabic, Kyle is rendered as "beloved," and in Hebrew, it means "regal woman". It is also possible that Kyle is an anglicized variant of the Scottish surname MacSuile, as registrars in the Ballycastle district validated the use of Kyle and MacSuile interchangeably.
