"my daughter is Kaylin Elizabeth so of course I love the name but I have the same issue of people wanting to put a T in her name ans call her Katelyn which is a very popular name where we live she almost always has at least one Katelyn in her class. My biggest irritation comes from her friends calling her Katelyn instead of kaylin and I mean kids she has known for the past 7 years that live in our subdivision and go to school with her. She is so laid back about it that she doesn't bother to correct thm." Apr. 15, 2010:
"So there's over 11,000 of us. Not many really. I used to hate my name when I was younger but I like it now because it's not very common. Although my boyfriend likes to say it's a "made up" name, but whatever, he has a veryyyy common name.
I haven't met too many others, but I'm okay with it I think." Apr. 1, 2010:
"Our little girl is due in July, and my husband and I have decided on the name Kaylin Ann after my aunt Kay, his mom Linda, and my mom, Ann.

We think it's a very beautiful and gentle sounding name." Mar. 12, 2010:
"My name is Kaylin and when I was younger I used to not like it because I couldn't find my name on an keychains or mugs or anything. But I've grown to really like it and I think it's a beautiful name and unique. I get very irritated when I'm called Kaitlyn. I had a girl in my class named Caitlyn and since I was so used to being called that, whenever the teacher called Caitlyn's name, I would look up. But the name Kaylin has beauty and spirit! YAY PEOPLE WITH THE NAME KAYLIN!" Feb. 7, 2010:

"My name is Kaylin and it's a wonderful name. I'm always so upset because everyone overlooks it for the extremely popular "Kaitlyn". Kaylin has a lot more character then Kaitlyn. Hmphhhhh. Haha. Oh well. I've met one other person with my name...although i think she was named after me!!" May. 1, 2009:
"I named my daughter Kaylin. She was born on September 20, 2006. I really thought I made it up and when I found out I didnt I was really bummed! I started with Caydin and I found out it was a boys name so I started going through the alphabet changing the 'D' to every letter of the alphabet until I got to 'L' and both my husband and I loved it. Well I still do. But everytime I say her name people always pronounce it Katelynn! I hate it! I always spell it out for them so they notice that there is not a 'T' in it! I have only met one other Kaylin but it is, ironically, my husbands friends brothers name! Well its not his real name I guess its his middle name and they call him that? I dont know but that is the one other Kaylin we have met in real life! But her name totally fits her! She is very talkative (unless around new people and then she is very shy), she thinks she is really a princess, she is very sweet in a bratty way (if that makes since), and she is very petite! We call her kay kay alot! I also call her Kailan due to the show coming out on Nickelodeon. Its just a cute little extra name I have for her! :)" Mar. 23, 2009:
"It's myyy name :)
I thought it was really original I didn't know it was so popular!
Ugh my friend's name is kaitlyn and she was joking around and she was like "At least my mom didn't forget to put a T in my name!" And I was like "Well, my mother didn't forget either?"
I think I'm rather depressed at how popular it is, I thought it was pretty unique.
But we will take over the Kaitlyns! Muahahaha!" Feb. 3, 2009:
"I named my daughter Kaylin when she was born May 15, 1990. I made the name up at that time because I thought I was having a boy. His name would have been Keynin. Quickly thinking I need a girl's name, I switched the "e" to an "a", and the "n" to a "l". I didn't realize that other people thought of the name also. We sometimes call her Kiki or Kay-Kay. She's always been such a joy with a pleasant disposition on life. I'm glad I named her Kaylin!" Oct. 30, 2008:
"I love that my name is Kaylin. Until I moved to a new state and school in my freshmen year of high school, I'd never heard of other Kaylins (or even known people with other spellings). I actually graduated with 4, yes FOUR, other Kaylins (though none spelled the same. One of them I repeatedly ended up in classes with and it was no use calling one of us by our name plus middle name because we were both a Kaylin Elizabeth and a Kailynn Elizabeth. Haha. Also, there was a Kaelyn a grade ahead of us.
When I was a cashier in a party store, I met a few people with daughters named Kaylin. I also got a lot of people calling "Kaitlin." One woman pointed directly at my name tag and said, "That's a pretty way to spell 'Kaitlin'." I was pretty offended, since she'd looked right at it. With others, I politely correct them and it's not a big deal.
Really the only problem with my name is the mispronunciations or misspellings. On the phone, a lot of people think I'm saying, "Karen." Other names I've been called are: Kayla, Kaylee, Katherine, Kathleen, Kaitlin, Katie, and an assorment of others.
Otherwise, I LOVE my name!
My mom picked it out of a 10,000 Baby Names book. She took a few letters out of Kathleen and then thought she came up with it herself, haha. I've since learned there have been more baby books published with Kaylin and other various spellings with their own meanings." May. 10, 2008:
"My daughter's name is Kaylin. I have seen many meanings for from "keeper of the keys" to "loved".
It was very easy for her to learn.
The only dificulty is people interjecting a 't' in the name or someone calling her "Makayla".
Given time, they do learn the proper pronounciation." Mar. 24, 2008:
"My daughter's name is Kaylin and we all love her name. Everyone calls her KK and always have. She is a beautiful girl with a beautiful name. The only problem is that you can NEVER find anything with her name on, (like pre-made things) and she does get call Kaitlyn alot. I love the name!" Sep. 9, 2007:
"My Mothers name is Kaylin. I dont hear this name very much, but theres once in awhile you meet someone with her name. Many of my friends will pronounce her name rong, but she always corrects them saying its "Kay" and then "Lenn". I think this name would be easy to spell but you have people who spell her name all rong." Jul. 17, 2007:
"I love my name Kaylin! I am Gaelic and my parents thought it would be too hard to name me Caoilainn. So they named me Kaylin (which is how you pronounce the Gaelic name). Although, it is difficult in school when somone is talking to another person who is named Caitlyn. I always turn my head. Also, I've noticed the increase in the name!" Jan. 14, 2007:
"This is the name we picked for our daughter and we love it!" Sep. 10, 2006:
"I love my name, Kaylin, because I feel like it's so unique. I've only heard of another person named named. It was a boy and he spelled it different. However, people always confuse my name with Kayla or Kaitlynn, but if they see it written down they can pronounce it." Mar. 10, 2006:
"I love having the name Kaylin as well. The Katelyn/Caitlin/any other spelling of the name confusion can be really irritating though. I still don't understand why people have such a hard time pronouncing it though..." Jan. 31, 2006:
"this is my daughters name and i wanted to spell it differently but i went ahead with her fathers idea and spelled it K-A-Y-L-I-N and no one yet has to mispronounced it. I havent met another Kaylin yet, i got the name from Americas next top model.but that girl spelled it Kahlen." Jan. 20, 2006:
"I love my name, it's so pretty :) There's no way to make fun of it and it's really unique still. I rarely ever come across people with my name and they're always pronouncing it with a random 't'. I hate that, it's just Kaylin, pretty, simple." Jan. 10, 2006:
"I really like my name (Kaylin), and do not have a problem with people pronouncing it when they read it, however when I introduce myself, they often confuse it with Katelyn.
I often have to provide the correct spelling due to the large number of spelling varieties." Aug. 17, 2005:
