"I love it because it's not common. Of course it's always pronounced Carolyn but that helps weed out soliciting phone calls because if you can't pronounce it you're not a someone I know!" Jul. 10, 2010:
"It's my daughter's name, but we spell it with a K. I often wish I had spelled it with a C.
My daughter likes her name and says she thinks it's special because a lot of other people don't have her name. I hope she continues to feel this way. You're kind of taking a risk by giving your child a name that's as unique as this one is." May. 9, 2010:
"I love, love, love the name Carlyn! It's what we named our little girl, who is almost three. Hopefully she'll grow up loving her unique name too." Jan. 10, 2010:
"I think Carlyn is a great name. One of my favorite people in the whole world is named Carlyn -- my daughter. She's great and fits the name perfectly." Dec. 3, 2009:
"I love my name, now, because it is unique. I hated it growing up because it was so different and EVERYONE got it wrong at first. To this day, my name is mispelled and mispronounced on a regular basis, but I no longer mind. I just say, "My name is Carlyn, pronounced like "George Carlin." I often get compliments! Here's to all the "Carlyns" in the world!!" Jul. 28, 2009:

"My name is Carlyn as well. I honestly hated my name for the longest time, but lately, I've learned to love it. Yes, it's often misspelled. Yes, every time we have a substitute teacher all my friends look at me because it's often pronounced wrong. My last name is also quite strange, and I was voted "Most Unique Name" in the yearbook. But honestly, I would NEVER change my name. Everyone says it suits me well, and I agree." Dec. 1, 2013:
"This "Carlyn" is my name My mother named me after my great aunt and the hospital nurse sent my birth recordsto show the name spelled "Carolyn" but I was raise to pronounce it Carolyn b/c of what was on the birth certificate. My mother told me that Carolyn was not my name,after all these years I want the name my mother named me. I want my original name. I will seek to change to honor my Mother." Jun. 4, 2011:
