The spelling of this name strikes me as contrived, and also as presenting a problem in that Katelynn is going to have to be constantly correcting people that no, it's not spelled "Caitlin" or "Kaitlin."

This is my best friends name and I love it. It's really pretty.

Every person who says Katelynn is an ugly way of spelling this name is completely wrong. My name is Katelynn and I love it. I love my unique spelling of the name and I think it's better than any other boring name like Caitlyn.
My parents did an amazing job of picking my name and the spelling.

This is a modern smoosh. It has NOTHING to do with the Irish Cáitlin. Once you combine two obvious English contractions/short forms like this, the Irish connection is all but finished with.

Just stick with Caitlin.

It's not original, at all, and it's incorrectly spelled. Plus it looks immature and trendy.

Excuse me! Who ever said that this is a ugly name spelled this way is wrong. I think that when it is spelled Catilyn is a ugly way! I love it spelled like this, I only know one Katelynn that it's spelled like this. Very unique!

Hate it! It's like someone couldn't decide between Kate (the most over-used nickname for the name Catherine) and Lynn (the most over-used middle name ever). Or it's like someone didn't know how to spell "Caitlin" right.

It´s a horrible name. :-((

Personally, I'd prefer this name spelled Catelynne. This name is more of a combination of Kate and Lynn NOT a variant of Caitlin.

AH! My eyes are burning!

Any parent who chose this name for their daughter should be whipped. Caitlin is too common as it is (it's almost forgotten that it's a mangling of "Caitlín" ("KAHTCH-leen"), a pet from of "Caitríona", the Irish form of Catherine), using a different spelling will not make the name any more "unique"; a stinkweed by another name does not smell any better.

All of these "-yn" (and "-ayden" and "-ee" names are so trendy that it's obscene; children grow up, and for the girls with these names, they will be stuck with these frivolous, childish monstrousities that will not be spared by time but will only accentuate how poorly that these names hold up as the bearer ages. These parents are not doing a favor for their children; they are playing a cruel joke on them, however unconciously.

What an ugly way of spelling the beautiful Caitlin.

I have to STRONGLY disagree with em_ily17. I love the way this is spelt! I don't like the other way. This way is beautiful!

This can also be a combination of Kate and Lynn.
