    Yes, but ultimately it's your call. I would suggest names that sound different but have the same amount of syllables. Patricia and Rebecca, Annie and Lindsey, Tim and Doug. They just sound better when you say them together. In addition, it would be very easy to confuse Kaley and Kinley sonically wise. Just to make it easier for both your kids and you, I would suggest not naming them Kaley and Kinley.

    Sure. I love the name Kaley, it means "beautiful, lovely, or slender". And I like Kinley, it can be used for either gender

    For me, very much so.  I despise matchy twin names.  Twins are not a joined set.  They're individuals. I find it even more off-putting when it's a boy/girl set, which I assume Kaley and Kinley are.  

    But of course the choice is yours.

    I love Kaley, I can't even tell if Kinley is male or female. Kathy would go much better.

    No.  That seems pretty twinny.  I think the whole matchy-matchy twin naming thing must've started with the twins who originally founded Rome: Remus and Romulus. Personally, I'd make "Kinley" "Kenley."  That way, nicknames could be "Kal" and "Ken," because I'm not sure how I like "Kin" as a nickname.
