Too generic. It's original meaning and spelling taken away, Caimshr├▓n (Cameron ("crooked nose")) is no more.

I named my daughter Kamryn. Her big sister calls her Kammie - I hate that nickname.

I like that name. I think the nick-name "Kammie" sounds nice.

I sort of like this, especially as an alternative to the use of "Cameron" for a girl, which I think is too masculine. This seems rather cute actually, as the "K" and "y" seem to make it more feminine.

I absolutely LOVE this name! It makes me so happy and it is such a girl's name. When I have my first girl, her name is no doubt going to be Kamryn Marie!

Kamryn is anything but cute and girlie. It looks rather ridiculous to me. Cameron was a great name until the girls and their "cute" spellings came along.

Kamryn is a pretty name for a girl. I know only one girl who spells it this way. Nicknames can be Kam or Kammy.

Ugh. Another kreatyve spelling. Stick with the originals, folks!

I love Kamryn for a girl. I think Cameron is more for a boy.

This spelling is positively feral. How low rent!

Talk about removing any connection with the Scottish surname. You have it in sound but it looks like someone went to town with an axe and spray paint on it.

Don't like it. Kamryn sounds even more nauseating with that "special" K in it.

My sister (whom is older than me by a year) bares this name. In my personal opinion, this name is not "ridiculous". I feel this name suits her well! I'd rather name a child this than a lot of crazy-sounding names parents and young-teen moms are coming up with these days to sound more "unique".

Oh god. Not only is there a *completely unnecessary* k in place of a c, but there's also a *completely unnecessary* y smack dab in the middle. That'll definitely make it feminine! Hah, no. 'Cameron' is a nice boy's name, but the sound of it is just not feminine. No matter how girly-cutesy you spell it, it's still gonna sound like a boy name when you say it.

What makes the "K" or the "Y" unnecessary? Variations of name spellings have been around forever - who cares!

Aside, the name is not pronounced the same as Cameron.

I think it's great.

I think that Kamryn is a quite lovely name for a girl. My younger cousin has that name and it's a beautiful name.

I agree with the consensus. Kamryn is a tacky, trendy, kre8yv spelling of Cameron. And while your mileage may vary, I strongly prefer Cameron as a masculine name in any case. And I agree with the point made: creative spellings like this lose their meaning and origin. Cameron is a Scottish surname; Kamryn is American trash.

Girls pronounce Kam-rihn and boys pronounce Cam-ehr-ihn.

I gave this name to my daughter when she was born in 2000. It has nothing to do with the name Cameron, which is supposed to be pronounced differently. I know someone named Kami and I liked the name. My daughter's grandmother's name was Kathryn. So I took the spelling of that name and replaced the "th" with an "m". I had never heard of her name being spelled this way before. Her name is supposed to be pronounced cam-rin, not cam er ron.
She is precious, beautiful, joyful and extremely intelligent and talented.

My name is Kamryn and I was born in 1974. From my research I am the oldest Kamryn. It has been wonderful being a Kamryn. It was specifically chosen by my mother who always wanted to name her child Cameron whether a boy or girl. She felt in 1974 that Kamryn looked very feminine and I happen to agree that it very much does. It is beautiful to write and beautiful to say. Last I checked, Scotland did not own names. Cheers!

My name happens to be Kamryn which is pronounced differently than the 'boy' spelling Cameron. Mine is pronounced Kam rin while Cameron is pronounced Cam er ron. It is not a 'spin off' but more so an original name. It is also not a feminine name. When pronounced it sounds slightly rougher, not cute.

Why is everyone saying Kamryn is a trashy name? It is cute and creative and MUCH more unique than boring old Cameron.
-- Sania01  7/22/2016
Always liked the name Kam but thought it a bit plain for a girl, so I think it's perfect. The original Scottish spelling is Kamerun, from the 13th century, so I don't see how the spelling disrupts the meaning any. My surname is Scottish, has 4 different spellings in Scotland, but only one is very common. Being the most common doesn't make it the most correct!
