Comments for JACLYN:

Please do not spell Jacqueline like this; all of these "-lyn" names are annoying, are a joke, and it completely throws away such a lovely name.

I like Jaclyn better than Jaqueline or however you spell it because it is a lot simpler, but I don't like this name because of somebody I know with this name. They don't really make it look good.

I hate this name big time! It's trashy and wierd you'd have to be a retard to name your child this. I will never use it.

I guess that makes my mother retarded and weird? Thanks. Anyway. I'm not trashy, stupid or ghetto-fied because I have this name. I personally don't really like it that much either. I love the nickname Jack though which is what most people call me.

I love this nae, it's so much better than Jacqueline. I would not mind to name my daughter Jaclyn, because it's such a lovely and modern name.

It's ok, but something about it makes me think of it as somewhat devious. I wouldn't use it because I have a friend with this name (nickname Jackie) but it definitely works for her (though she isn't the least bit devious.)

I don't really like alternative spellings of Jacqueline; Jaclyn, Jacklyn, Jacquelyn don't really look pretty. Jacqueline is the pretty spelling!

This is a horrible spelling, and it doesn't make the parents look very educated. Many people will assume the poor girl just can't spell, or that she comes from a trashy family.

My name is Jaclyn and I do like it. I am 18 and have always preferred Jackie, however now that I am off to college I have come to appreciate my name more and will go by Jaclyn. It's fairly uncommon and the prettiest way to be spelled in my opinion. ;)

I prefer the spelling of "Jacqueline" compared to this spelling. The name is pretty, but the spelling makes it ugly (for me, at least). Beautiful name overall, but it can be overused sometimes):, I know four "Jacquelines", though not all the spellings are the same.

I don't like this spelling because it's missing the middle vowel. It sounds kind of like "jackal" and even sounds borderline trashy.

Most people choose to spell the name this way because of the way Jacqueline is pronounced.
Jacqueline- Jack-a-lin
Jaclyn- Jack-lin
Without the 'a' sound in the middle.
'Jackal' can't really be applied to this name, as there is no 'a' being pronounced. I come from an upper class background, and consider myself to be the farthest away from 'trashy' that a person can be.

I think Jaclyn works better for some people than Jacqueline would. One of my friends is named this but goes by Jacky, she's quirky, musical, talented and short (seriously) and the name fits her perfectly. I couldn't see her lugging Jacqueline around even if she goes by a nickname.

My name is Jaclyn and I don't like it much. Until I was 12 I was introduced as Jaclyn and when I moved I decided to go by Jaci (pronounced Jackie), though family and friends have always called me Jack. I wouldn't want the spelling Jacqueline either because I associate the name Jackie with snobby, rude girls.

This is my friend's name and we have this other friend who (for the entire 12 years we've known her) says it Jack-leen, rather annoyingly. I personally don't like the name so she goes by Jax by all except her dad who calls her Jacky to annoy her.
