"I know a boy named Kellen. The name is very original and not super common. I love it! It's one of those names that you can just say over and over again without it becoming weird to say!" Nov. 24, 2013:
"My five year old son's name is Kellan. It's the best name ever! He gets complimented all the time and I love that he'll never have another Kellan in any of his classes, unlike all the poor Aidens and Ethans out there :)" Oct. 19, 2013:
"My name is Kelen. (one L) I love my name and am finding that it is growing in popularity. Ive actually dated a girl by the name of Kellyn. Very odd but it was cool." Feb. 1, 2013:
"my daughter is now 4 months old and when she was born we didnt have a name for her. We wanted a name that was not common and when we found out that the student midwife that helped me deliver her was called Kellen we loved it. It even has my name Ellen in it which makes it even more special. Perfect name we love it. People do pronounce it wrong but its simple to read and understand i just think people say it wrong as they are not confident about the name as its one they may have not come across before. Love it x" Aug. 13, 2010:
"My name is Kellen, spelled Kellynne. I am female and 30 years old. I like my name but wish it was spelled Kellen. Many people try to put an A into the name -Kelly Anne. I also like it for a boy." Jul. 20, 2008:
"My son is named Kellan Jack and we think it is an awesome name. Easy to spell and pronounce without being "common". He is the only Kellan we have come across so far and people are always remarking what a wonderful name it is. It is a beautiful name!" Apr. 15, 2008:
"Our Kellen was born in 1997. I found the name in the last novel I read before giving birth to him (Steve Martini's, "The List"). We've never had one regret about his name. It's unique without being strange and unpronounceable. He's in the fourth grade now and there's never been another Kellen in any school or daycare he's attended. Thank you Steve Martini!"

"This is my son's name. He is 2 years old. We absolutely loved the name when we saw it on the internet. People do mispronounce it though...they say Callum or Cailean. I've been an elementary teacher for 18 years and I've never taught or heard of a Kellen before so it was perfect. It's very unique. Now I'm pregnant again with another boy and we are really having a hard time with another Irish gaelic or similar origin. We really want something unique again." Aug. 18, 2007:

"My name is Kellen spelled Kelyn and pronounced like Helen with a K, like my mom says. I'm 21 years old (famale) and have never run across another one personally in my entire life; though I know they exist. People are always calling me Kaylin or KAyleen, or KaylA,OR Keylin,I dont know why it looks easy enough to me Kelyn LaJon, when I do tell people my name they always compliment it, I guess its really rare." Dec. 1, 2008:
"It's my name, people pronounce it wrong the first time they meet me (I get Kevin a lot), but I love it because it's so unique, and people think it's cool. But seriously, if you're reading this, don't name your kid Kellen. The rareness and individuality of it is what makes it awesome." Jul. 14, 2007:
