All of you claiming that it needs to be spelled only one way that that's the "right way" need to know that it originates from the name Katherine, so it's not like you name is what it originally is either.

  • "My name is Caitlin. There aren't many people who can spell it correctly! My parents and siblings can, but many of my relatives can't! I rarely have pronunciation issues though. I know at least 15 other girls with the same name as me (Different and same spellings) so it's kinda fun to compare how we spell it and crazy spelling mistakes that come from it! I don't get all upset when someone spells it wrong, I usually correct them though! Nobody likes to see their name spelled wrong! My mom and dad names me and my siblings with names that begin with the "K" sound. There is three of us, so when my mom goes "K..." all of us are like "What?" My mom sometimes calls me caitie-lynn, or cait, I also get called caitie-lady and caitie-pooh (This is one that I was NOT fond of!). I remember when i was in grade 11. There were three girls in my math class, including me, with the same name (all different spellings, mine Caitlin, one Kaitlyn and one Katelyn. It was quite confusing! Also, there is two of us, with the same spelling, so it gets really confusing when someone goes over the PA saying "Caitlin call ext 179" We are both like "Uh, which one?" It isn't too bad. My name is my name I guess. I couldn't imagine having another one..." Jun. 15, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Caitlin and I was born in 1978. Growing up, I was the only Caitlin I knew and I loved having an unusual name. Then suddenly it became hugely popular in the early 90's and everybody was spelling it wrong, and for some reason it really drove me crazy! I felt like my name had been stolen and misused! Now whenever I give my name, I spell it super slowly, but I inevitably get some other version, loaded with k's and y's and I used to feel almost offended. People say I spell it weird, and I politely explain that it is the original Irish spelling. Nowadays, I've just learned to embrace all the other (wrong) spellings out there and just let it go. ;o) I also get some strange pronunciations - my all-time favorites are "cartlin" and "cotillion"!"

  • "HI, my name is CAITLIN. I was born in 1990. And there wernt many people with this name then. but now there are sooo many. Its aggrivating. I go to school with a Katlyn. And for some reason we seem to ended up with at lest one class together, people alway talk to her during class and call her name, so I look thinking its me there calling for, and they always say 'oh not oyu the other katlyn'. whatever, I just stopped listening all together, and half the time i dont answer the techer because im not sure which one of us shes talking too. So thats one thing that bothers me about this name. I really dont like it at all, the only thing i like about it is that its celtic/irish, and i LOVE irish things. Plus soo many people spell it worng. like some of my close friends dont even know how to spell it and that drives me crazy. And others they will either ask how to spell it, or my total favorite, dont even ask you how to spell it and write it totaly wrong!!! like they just guess and you sit there like thats totaly not my name. the lest they could do is ask how to spell it and say 'i thought thats how, but i wanted to make sure' so it wouldnt make them look like total idots..But whatever cant changes it. had it for 18 years so why change it now, right.

  • "In 1977 I named my baby daughter Caitlin. I had never heard of a single child being named Caitlin at the time. I first saw the name when I was in high school, in my English Literature textbook, in a love letter written by the poet Dylan Thomas to his devoted wife, Caitlin. I thought it was the most beautiful girls' name I had ever heard. My favorite boys' name was always Christopher. I graduated, went to college, got married, had my first child - a boy.....my Christopher. Six years later I became pregnant again and, by that time, felt that perhaps I had only imagined the name Caitlin because I'd heard of not a single other Caitlin in all those years! In those days, no one could find out what sex their baby was until it was born unless there was some problem in pregnancy, but just a month before my due date, amazingly, People Magazine came out with a biographical article on THE Caitlin Thomas, widow of Dylan! Not only was she real and still alive, but she was an absolutely beautiful 80-something woman. I took it as a sign that my baby would be a girl, and it was! I had remembered the beautiful name Caitlin for her all those years. My Caitlin has been the most wonderful daughter, and she will be 31 a few months from now (2008). When Caitlin started school and as she progressed through the grades, I noticed that several teachers she had who had baby girls named them Caitlin. There is just something beautiful and enchanting about this name. I have absolutely no idea why it didn't catch on prior to 1977 in this country (U.S), but I've always been sort of glad that it didn't! I have only heard of one Caitlin older than mine, other than the Caitlin I named her for. I think all Caitlins are special girls, perhaps due to their beautiful name."

I love our name and would never change it, though it drives me nuts when people spell my name the wrong way. And i hate to stir up controversy, but "Caitlin" is the original, gaelic spelling. It means "little Catherine" and Catherine means "purity." As far as i know this is the oldest spelling. This is NOT to say that all the other ways are not original and fantastic.
