    Name Meaning

    From the vocabulary word for a male monarch, bestowed, especially in America, with a hint of the notion that the bearer would have kingly qualities; compare Duke and Earl . In some cases it may be a transferred use of the surname (originally a nickname or an occupational name given to someone who was employed in a royal household). Its frequency among African Americans is no doubt partly attributable to the civil rights leader Martin Luther King ( 1929–68 ). It is also used as a short form of Kingsley .
