  • "I love my name ~ like many others that have responded here, it was my father who picked the spelling ~ Jacalyn. I was born on Bastille Day in 1954 ~ (According to this article, the top year for the number of baby girls that were named Jacalyn) ~ being a descendent of the British Isles, perhaps he believed it was a good English variation of the French name Jacqueline!"

My mom found the name in a book, and she picked it because it was similar to my late Grandfathers name, Jack. I think that the name was not common, especially now- a- days. Many people I know like the name . . . . My mom calls me Jac- a- lyn, but most people called me Jac-lyn when I was in elementary school, and people called my that. I think that the name comes from the French name, Jaqueline." Feb. 2, 2011: Report as inappropriate

My parents spotted the spelling in a names book and preferred it to the more traditional French spelling - I always assumed the spelling was an Americanism; since the advent of the internet regular 'googling' of the name has mostly proved me right! Like many of the above, I neglected the full spelling as a child - too formal and the spelling issues drove me mad! That said, I've always been a JackY, and that seems to confuse everyone just as much! Have started to grow into the full name as I get older... it is good to be different!"
