Comments for the name Kaitlyn


Comments for KAITLYN:

Kaitlyn is a name of strength and beauty. It represents courage and honor. As well as intelligence. Kaitlyn is poetic, and here is a taste.

Strength resides within my self being
I am not conceded though confident
Head strong I am as well, though I am neither rash nor stubborn
I am also intelligent and quite clever
Blessed I am, for all I have and have attained
I am a graceful ballerina
Independent and self-reliant too
Additionally, I am a faithful friend and trustworthy listener
Honesty is crucial within my morals
Responsible and mindful both describe my beliefs
I enjoy literature, fine art, and photography
Dance is my addiction and I am always sure to overdose with each evening
Love and hope is my religion and I practice it with every day
I live in the moment and never give up
I am inspiring and courageous
Accepting of change and new phases
Or quite simply, I am me and this is how I see
I am Kaitlyn"

I'm sorry but I for one don't like the name Kaitlyn no matter which way it's spelled. Yes, "Kaitlyn" is the best way of spelling it but everyone I've known with this name has appeared nice at first until you got to know them.

I prefer the original Caitlin spelling of the name, although I do like the name itself. I like the cute melodic charm.

Kate lyn. I think it's classic yet charming, very girly.
-- qtofireland  7/18/2006
This is my name, and while I like it, it seems to me to be a very youthful name, and not very professional. It also tends to be spelled incorrectly a lot, since there are a million variations of the spelling.

Kaitlyn is a beautiful name. If I have a daughter someday I would name her Kaitlyn. It's just so feminine and sweet sounding. It also sounds very dignified and classy. As she grew older she could go by Kate. I disagree about Kaitlyn not sounding "very professional". A lot of very great people are named Kaitlyn or Kate. Silly to say that.

Kaitlyn is a beautiful name. It's my 4th favorite. It does sound very youthful but when she gets older, she could be called Kate or something.

I love this name and spelling. Kaitlyn does sound youthful, but that can be an advantage. It is much better than Edith, or Ellen.
-- Emma McHnery  12/16/2006
I think Kaitlyn is a very beautiful name. But where I live, there are way too many people with that name - in fact, there are at least 4 in my school. A friend of mine is named Kaitlyn, but she hates the name since it's so ordinary.

Well, my name is Kaitlyn, and as I've grown older people have began calling me "Kaitie, Katester" all those names. I don't like my name being Kaitlyn. It sounds childish and immature.

If people spelled it right, it wouldn't seem so childish! The Irish alphabet does not contain K or Y. Although this spelling is closer to the Greek roots of the name (K and Y *are* frequently used in *that* alphabet), and is an interesting modern example of the evolution of language and names, it is WAY overused and much too trendy. Please, please, give your child a name with some substance -- like Caitlin!

I agree with the Anonymous User. This name wouldn't be so `childish` if it was spelled the right way -- Caitlin. The original form is the classiest, the one with most elegance. Adding the K's and the Y's is ruining this beautiful name Caitlin.

Silly name. Little girls' dolls should have this name, not real little girls.
-- johann14  9/25/2007
Ok you know what, my name is Kaitlyn and I love it. Kaitlyn is not a baby doll's name!

Cute but far too common. I think it works well as a middle name though.
-- pandasayscynical  12/30/2007
I think Kaitlyn is cute. I don't understand why people make such a big deal about the spelling. I've seen a lot worse. I don't understand why people don't like it. I'd like to use it on a baby girl one day, if I ever get pregnant. I think Kaitlyn is pretty.

This is my sister's name. My mom wanted it spelt this way because she thought it would be easier for our relatives to pronounce - where they are from it's not a common name at all, and she didn't wan't my sister called Cat-lin. Personally, perhaps because I am biased in this case, I think it's a beautiful spelling of this name.
-- dark_sorceress  5/17/2008
This is my name. I usually just go Kate or Katie, occasionally Kat, so yeah the name is very flexible. There's many different spellings for this name, but I believe this is the cutest way to spell it.
-- katechaos  8/2/2008
My mom named me this. I like the name. It makes me me, and consequently, not all people who have this name are mean. We may be really really crazy, but not mean.
-- keh1989  1/24/2009
I like this name (despite the fact that it is quite common), particularly when spelled this way. Somehow the "C" always seem less strong, or something, and I love the letter "i". I also don't think this name is tied to any any age group, young or old, and that it is cute when paired with the middle name "Jean."
-- teensyalmond  6/3/2009
I used to love the name Kaitlyn but now it's become so overused I can't stand it.
-- Meadow  11/6/2009
I hate this spelling. If you have a child, name her Caitlin or Katelyn. One or the other. Anything between is ridiculous.
-- Dawson  12/9/2010
This is my name. It is not trendy or anything. Although my mother wanted the traditional spelling, my father wanted something different. They did not anticipate the popularity that my name would garnish a few years after my birth. I've only known 2 or 3 Kaitlyns that spell it the same as I do, but its variations are quite popular. It is a bit of a shame. As far as nicknames go, friends and the public just call me Kaitlyn, but my family sometimes call me Kait or Kaity. I was named after my mother's sister Kathleen.
-- Book_Reader22  1/25/2011
Wow I am so sick of these million and one variants of the name Caitlin.

And everyone who has it says "My parents were trying to be unique and they didn't realise that the ridiculous spelling of my name was going to be used by, like, everyone. About 5 minutes after they signed the birth certificate".

How gullible do you think we ARE?!
-- keepitreal  1/26/2011
What does that have to do with gullibility? Sometimes parents do not anticipate the trendiness of a name, and that's why they give it to their child. I don't understand why someone would intentionally make their kid have a popular name? To make them fit in better? That's just lame.

Just because the people on this site (myself included) are avid name fans, does not mean everyone is. Some people base the popularity of name by how often they hear it, not by stats. Some people don't like to get so technical when they're naming their child. Some people don't have the access. So, no, this is not about how gullible people perceive others to be. It never was, and to assume such is more than a little childish.

My name is Kaitlyn and while I do like my name for the most part, I find it really annoying that there are also ten million other Kaitlyn, Catlin, Katlins in the US alone! Please do not add another Kaitlyn on top of that!
-- luvtolaugh  3/11/2011
My name is Kaitlyn and my name has grown on me. When I was little I used to hate my name, but now I love it. I love the nicknames like Katy or Katie (however you like to spell it) and Kate. I do hate having to always spell it for people, and every time I spell it out people say "Oh I've never seen that spelling before." And some people read my name and think it's pronounced Kathleen, Katlyn Katherine, not sure how they get that. My parents thought it was going to be an original name, but when we moved to Florida I did meet a lot of Kaitlyn's. I actually have a best friends named Kaitlin.
-- Kaitlyn90  3/31/2011
Sorry but this is another one of those I bet I can tell what year you were born names. Way overused and it's worn out. Do not like this one at all.
-- blake7134  10/25/2011
I really don't understand the massive popularity of this name, in all 144+ spelling variations I've seen. Weren't there already enough of them 15-20 years ago? Not only does it seem like a dull and unoriginal naming choice these days, but it also seems very childish and insubstantial.
-- Anyechka  6/12/2013
My name is Kaitlyn I most certainly think it's a beautiful name I love it very much. Yes there are proper spellings I guess. But I still haven't met one person who spelled their name the same way as me and I think it's pretty cool that my name isn't spelled as the original one is. I personally don't think that this name is overused.
-- Anonymous User  4/9/2014
My name is Kaitlyn, and I think a lot of you are really harsh about the name, I thinks it's a pretty name, and I don't know where you guys are in the world or whatever, but in England the name is not widely used, at least not where I am, and where I am, no one else spells it the same way I do, so it's pretty unique over here. It is hard to find a nickname for it though, in my opinion.
