KAY-linn: Idk about preferred spelling. Kalin?
for a boy & Jaiden
for a girl
, I suppose. I prefer Madeline
As for variant spellings, I can tolerate:Hayley
, Katelyn(n), Alyson
, and Zoey
I tend to strongly dislike any other spellings.
Those I know with the names:
I've known one Haley
- we went to high school together and she was two grades ahead of me. I also knew a girl who went by Hali (prn. the same). It was one of her MNs.
I've known several Kaylees - all under 5. One sibset was David
(9), Eaven (pr. Evan
, 4) and Kaylee
I've known one Carly
. She is a year older than me. She has a younger brother named Connor
I had so many Cailins in my high school class it was crazy. Most of them were Caitlin
"Cate/Kate/Catie/Katie". One of my sisters has the MN Katelyn
I've known one Kalin, spelled Kaylin
. She is probably about 25 now. She has a sister my age named Taylor
and an even younger brother named William
". Their dad is William
I've known several Allisons and one Alyson
, ages 18-25ish. My SO's sister's name is Allison
". She is 18.
I knew a lot of Jayden/Jaidens when I worked in daycare. One 4 year old Jaiden
had a way older sister (about 16 or 17) named Caitlin
I met one Caden
when I worked in daycare. He is 4.
I met one Hayden
when I was in daycare. He was 6. Sibset - Jody
(m, 7), Hayden
(f, 3) and DJ (1).
I have a 5 year old cousin named Aaden. He has a 16 year old brother named Troy
. I've also known several Aidens, one Ayden
, and one Aidan
, all about 3 or 4.
I knew a ton of Mary
Catherines in high school, and all of them went by Cate
or Catie. I don't know anyone with just the FN Katherine/Catherine/Kathryn.
I've known several Briannas. Two are my age. One is about 2 and she is one of six kids. Siblings are Vincent
, Brendin, and another I never met (in age order, all under 10).
I have a 5 year old cousin named Madelyn
. Her dad is Thad
(and his siblings are Meghan
and Currie). I worked with a bunch of kids at the daycare named Madalyn
and even one Maddalynn. All 2 or younger.
I would use Katherine
. I love the name. Zoe
are okay. The others I wouldn't use.
