  • "I?ve had this name sense 1953. Named Jaclyn shoes. Same pronoun as eveyone I like my name" Jan. 21, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "We also named our daughter Jaclyn Smith after the actress, in 1987. Her full name is Jaclyn Susanne Smith. I knew as soon as she would start school, all her friends would call her Jackie instead of Jaclyn. I still call her Jaclyn. Our beautiful daughter with the beautiful name. It really is difficult when you marry a man named Smith. Every first name has already been used 1 billion times! I have been Linda Lee Smith for 34 years now." Apr. 8, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "I named my daughter Jaclyn, because-yes-there is Jaclyn Smith, but more so because it is a beautiful name and combines her dad's and my nicknames. Wouldn't have picked any other of the countless spellings, but JACLYN is easy to state, even though most say/spell it wrong anyhow. I'm "Linda"-named after a 40's/50's actress that no-one has heard of-I STILL am asked if it is Y or I, but am also told it is(& means) beautiful--the LY combo is a winner with any language and goes well with most surnames single ladies :)" Apr. 15, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Jaclyn too :) It's so funny reading everyone's comments and knowing there are lots of girls who deal with the same things in life associated with having this name! I don't like being called Jackie, but people always try (especially old people). I really don't feel that is anything like my name. Substitute teachers always called me Jocelyn/Jaslyn/Jacelyn. My mom named me after Jaclyn Smith which I always found a little strange, but I guess a lot of us have this in common lol. Over the years I've started meeting more and more people with the same spelling so I think it became popular in the 90s." Dec. 9, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Jaclyn too! I am a Malaysian girl. My mom was the one who came up with this name. I don't know the full details on how but I'm glad she did. I know most people pronounce it as Jack-lyn but for me, my name should be pronounced as Jay-slin not Jack-lyn. But then again, they always called me Jack-lyn or Jac. Whenever I introduced myself as Jay-slin, they go, "What?". So I give up and introduce myself as "Jack-lyn" and ask them to call me Jac instead. Yes, some of my friends spelled it as Jacyln though I don't understand how they can misspelled it. But I LOVE MY NAME NO LESS XDD" Jun. 10, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Jaclyn. I get many nicknames, Jackie, Jac, jack-o-lantern, Jacka** once or twice, Jackie Chan because my last name is extremely similar, Jackdog, Jack rabbit in elementary, and wacky Jacky.

  • "I'm 12 and my name is Jaclyn and I was named after my great-grandfather Jacob. The spelling comes from Jaclyn Smith. I like my name a lot, but there are some bad things about it. My science teacher always writes my name as Jacyln, which doesn't even make sense in my opinion. Substitutes always read my name and think its Jocelyn because they don't bother to realize it's an a, not an o! A lot of people misspell my name as Jacklyn. My teachers always call me Jackie, which I'm not terribly bothered by, but I prefer being called Jaclyn and that's what my friends and family call me. But overall I really like the sound and spelling of my name and the reason my parents named me Jaclyn :) Cheers to all Jaclyns!" Mar. 20, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "my name is jaclyn too, i love my name its not a very common name in the uk and i have never met another jaclyn in my 29 years of life, i was named after jaclyn smith because my dad had a crush on her (im sure my mum loved that) i dont like to be called jackie because it turns my unique name into a very common one, what i dont like is how many people spell it as jacqueline or jacklin. a lot of my friends call me jac or jaxx which i dont mind but my mum and dad and partner always call me jaclyn which i think is the best name in the world" May. 31, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Jaclyn, too. In school, some people call me Jackie and at home, my parents call me Jax. Either works fine and its fun to have a name with so many varieties.

The only thing im aggrivated about is the face that people mispronounce or misspell my name like Jacqueline. But me and my mom both know, my dad would definately not remember how to spell with all those letters!!! And im actualy named after Jacqueline Kennedy, President Kennedy's wife, but i swithched it to just J-A-C-L-Y-N." May. 12, 2009: Report as inappropriate

I love the way my name is really spelt it`s just fun to mix it up, but it bugs me a lot when people call me Jackie. I`m sure everyone with the name feels the same way pretty much.
