"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." Dec. 2, 2019:

"I named my daughter Caelyn Elizabeth. She was born 06-15-2010. I couldn't find "Caelyn" spelled with an "e" on this website, but I have seen it on others. I chose to spell it this way to avoid people calling her Caitlyn by accident - it's spelled differently enough to slow people down when they're reading it." Mar. 21, 2011:
"My husband and I named our daughter Cailyn because it is the Gaelic form of my name, Colleen, both meaning "Girl". I love this name, but people often call her CaiTlin, which is confusing." Jun. 29, 2010:
"My husband and I discovered this name while pregnant with our 2nd daughter. We loved the name and both thought it was a beautiful name. Hence we named her Cailyn, and since we've heard many compliments on it. Somethings people initially confuse it with Caitlyn and we have to pronounce it one more time." Apr. 10, 2010:
