"My name is Caitlynn and I've never met anyone with the same spelling. They always spell it with a 'K' or some other way. I like my name; I think it fits because it's a unique spelling and I find myself unique also. My teachers always call me "Katherine" or "Catylin". It's aggravating at times, but also quite entertaining seeing all the different, off-beat ways people pronounce and spell it. I wouldn't change my name ever. :)" Nov. 28, 2008:
