  • "My son is 23 and the most amazing Kylan in the world! He named himself... I had a dream before he was born.... He was playing in the sunshine and I was calling him to come inside. I can still hear his giggles as he ran past me chasing a butterfly. Since he was so kind to provide it I obliged and he really has lived up to his unique name. Always mis spelled and mis pronounced , he grew up correcting failed attempts with the grace,humor,and diplomacy. Very regal and in Kylan rules!" Jun. 22, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "I named my 2yr old son Kylan with hopes of it being unique and different. I was sorta correct until I googled his name found lots of other boys with the same name! My husband and I played around with different names and just came up with "Kylan". I thought I was really clever and invented it myself LOL! My name is Kira and so I really wanted a boys name that started with a K but not "Kyle" because it's too common. I too have alot of issues with people calling him "KAY-LEN" seriously? Where on earth do you see the A between the K and Y? LOL. I just dont respond to the nurses etc if they say Kaylen. I will sit there until they can pronounce it rite or just say his last name. Then I get up and tell them that if they cant pronounce a baby's name, then don't try too and just say their last name and ask how you pronounce his first name! I get sooo pissed off because it's not hard to pronounce WHAT SO EVER!!! I'm glad I see that there are alot of other people out here with the same name as my son so maybe one day he can come across and meet someone with the same name!"

I thought I was the only person with my name til one day I searced the name on facebook and a bunch of boys pictures came up. How shocked was I! I knew the name was different but I thought it was a girl name. I've met Kayla's, Kaylen's, Kyla's, Kyrin's but never my name. When I was a kid I always hated it because people seem to have a hard time pronouncing it. I guess it's growing on me now that im 26 years old. It's kinda fun being different.

  • "My wife and I had a hard time coming up with baby names for our son. We searched through thousands of them on websites and in books. The big problem is that between the two of us, we know a lot of people, and didn't want to duplicate their names. Plus we wanted to lean towards something Irish/Gaelic, as has been a tradition in my family. Our short list was either Kylan or Nolan, but we went with the rarer (seemingly) of the two, because we wanted something different (but not "weird" or that would give our child, teachers, etc. problems with spelling & pronunciation). We have had several instances of people wanting to say "Kay-lin", but that's just people being lazy or inattentive (how can "ky" sound like "kay"???). This kind of ignorance can happen with almost any name that isn't common, like Michael, Matthew, etc. People don't want to have to think..." Oct. 21, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "I named my baby girl Kylan (now 10). I thought I made it up but I guess I thought wrong. When I was pregnant I knew a lady named Kylah and LOVED it. I decided somewhere along the line to switch the "H" at the end for an "N" to make it unique. I had my heart set on it and was going to name my baby Kylan whether it was a boy or girl. (I didn't know the sex of my baby until birth). I have a scottish back ground and wanted to name my baby something to represent that and thought it would be appropriate. Her dad didn't like the name and tried to change my mind until the end. Once he saw all the trouble I had during child birth, he felt so sorry for me he would have let me name her Scooby Doo if I wanted to. Even though it's hard for people to get her name right, if you ask her, she loves it. Now that she's growing up, we have somehow shortened it to Ky. But when she was little, she was my Ky-Ky!!"

  • "My boys name is kylan kief ----- although apperently there are 350 boys in the USA with the name we have yet to meet one. Everyday people call him kaylen and yes it bugs. I suppose that what comes with having such a great and unusual name. I personally think it's one of the most beautifully unique names I've heard. Had I not named him kylan then heard the name later I would have referred my choice but having chosen the name I know I'll never have that problem. It makes me wonder why you don't hear it more often." Nov. 12, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "As the time drew near for my wife to deliver (natural) quadruplets back in 2005, we were still undecided as to what to name any of them! What a predicament! She liked the name "Kyle", as others have commented, but it wasn't working for me. She liked "Dylan" as well. Erm...nope. So, you can fill-in the rest of the story. "Aha!", I reasoned, "Kylan" would probably do. Mom liked it! I'd never heard it before in my life, but, I thought, if it's not a real name, it sure ought to become one. It sounded north-west European, maybe nordic or, perhaps, a name contrived for sci-fi. Cool enough. Now I see it's evidently not completely original, but still rare. Anyway, it's unique enough to be memorable to others as my little boy grows older. That decided, there were only three names to go! Those were interesting times..."

  • "My son is now 3 years old and his name is Kylan. While pregnant, his father and I could not agree on a name, so I went to Social Security website and went to the least common names, then wrote down 15 or 20 names that I liked and handed it to his father. He chose one of the names on the list, which happned to be Kylan.

  • "I'm 16 years old and my name is Kylan and live in Wisconsin. My name original name was actually kaylan but my parents got my name changed because being a boy with the girl's name kaylan is a bit odd. My parents as a nickname at about 4 years old would call me stinker pod so when we went to get my name changed I was crying becuase I didn't want to get my name changed to Kylan... I wanted sinkerpod! Poeple often mispronounce my name (usually subsitute teachers or when they're giving role call they just say my last name) as Killin. Sort of like Dillen. Then someone mentioned to me if that was how you pronounced it it'd be funny if my last name was spree - killin spree. lol" Mar. 19, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My son's name is Kylan. He's 8 years old. I first heard the name while listening to a particular radio station here in Memphis, Tn. It was one of the dj's name and I absolutely loved it. It was a toss up between Kylan and Tyler, but my cousin who had her son 2 weeks before I had mine and had absolutely no idea what she was going to name her son, decided to steal the name Tyler from me. I had no idea that she would do that so I just went with Kylan and I'm glad I did." Dec. 7, 2008: Report as inappropriate
