Comments for the name Caitlin

Comments for CAITLIN:

I think if you want to pronounce this name "Kate-Lyn", you should spell it "Katelyn" or something similar.

Caitlin is not pronounced this way in Ireland - Irish names always have non-intuitive pronunciation to English speakers. Caitlin is no exception - it can be anything from "Catleen" to "Coytleen" to "Coshleen"(?) depending on the area of Ireland. Never "Kate-Lyn" though.

I'm not hating on Katelyn though - I actually much prefer this to both the spelling and the Irish pronunciation of Caitlin!
