I love this name, since it's my name. But it can get annoying sometimes when people pronounce it like Karen. I always say, (not in earshot of anybody) "if it isn't spelled like Karen it shouldn't be pronounced like Karen." My mom's friend even spelled my name Caren! Anyway, yes, this is a great name, despite it's tendency to be misunderstood. Where I live this is a very uncommon name.

In the Netherlands it is a very popular name for the generation of women who are at this moment between 35 and 55 years old. My mother's name is Karin and I know at least 10 other people, even in my class, whose mothers are also called Karin.

In Dutch you pronounce it as: KAH-rin. So I agree it isn't Karen. [noted -ed]

Karin is also a Japanese feminine name. There are also fruits called Karin (I don't know how to call them in English but it's like a tiny orange.)

I am a Karin (pronounced CAR-in), but I also know a Karin who pronounces it like Karen. Most Karins I've met (which are few and far between where I'm from) pronounce it the way I do.

Hello. My name is Karin (Care-Rehn). While in Germany as a a teenager, I found my name to be common there. I asked how they would pronounce it, and they said it the same way I do. Personally it drives me nuts to be called Cah-rin, but that is due to association. Anyways, that's just my 2 cents. :D I do have a wonderful friend who's name is Carren (Car-Rehn), and I think it's beautiful. It drives her nuts, because nobody get's it right.
