"My mother named me Caryn. Strangely it does not show up in English til 1954 and seems to have only stuck around a few years. Whooped Goldberg's given name is Caryn Johnson and she and I (and Oprahsre the same age. Also Elvis Costello and Jerry Seinfeld!" Aug. 17, 2017:
"Yes, as a child I hated having a named that made me stand out. Now that my personality has caught up to my name I love having it! Why not settle for Karen? ...because why settle?" Jun. 23, 2016:
"I hated my name when I was a kid, but now I love it. I love the spelling of it! For the grumpy pants who said why not settle for Karen, my name is spelled this way because my Mom's name is Carolyn, so it's like a contraction of her name." May. 26, 2010:

"I would hate my name if it weren't spelled CARYN, but since it is spelled that way I LUV it!! I think it's so unique and it's totally me. I get compliments on the spelling often.. People do spell it wrong alllll the time and sometimes add an "l" to it like Carlyn or Carolyn or something like that. When I go to restaurants I give my mom's name because I know they'll spell mine wrong! However, I did that the other day and they spelled my mom's name wrong! Her name was Tessie... ý" Jul. 28, 2008:
"People always say it wrong. Well either that or my parents do. I pronounce it "Karen" but people often say "Ca/rin" or add letters and say "Carolyn". It also is often mispelled on checks or other things. I don't think I have ever met someone who spelled AND pronounced their name the same as mine. I mean I like my name because it is unique but it can get annoying too." Jul. 13, 2006:
