  • "I named my daughter Cailyn after spending many days searching baby names. I wanted something unique, beautiful and elegant. I saw stars when I saw her name. Everyone loves her name. People have called her Caitlyn and I always correct them and it say her name slowly so they hear it so there isn?t any problems. When they hear it, they know it. So annunciate it slower, K-Lyn."
