This is my sister's name. I like it well enough, but I prefer Shayla.

Shaelyn is a pretty name. Not used very much.

I LOVE this name. It is one of my top 5 girl's names. I like the spelling Shailyn better, though.

I loathe these trendy "-yn" names; they only fit when the child is little, but children grow up and the name looks awkward on an adult. And how many parents are there who choose a trendy name, claiming that they are being "unique", and then find out that every other parent has chosen that same name for their child? Following trends is the opposite of being unique; you're doing what everyone else is doing (and deluded, at that, for thinking that you are going against the grain). If a child will go through life with a ridiculous name, it's the parent's fault.

Shaelyn is a pretty name. I've heard of a couple of Shaelyn's who are adults and the name suits them well. In choosing a name I think it's more important that the parents love the sound of it rather than feel the need to adhere to some strict (and sometimes ridiculous) "name rulebook". If you love the name, choose it!

My aunt is called Shaelyn and it suits her but it's also my middle name and people say it suits me (I'm 14) so I say it suits all ages. I like having a different name than everyone else, it's unique, the only problem is no one can pronounce it. :)

I love my name and am proud of it. People may say that it won't suit me when I grow up, but I think they are wrong. I love my name and am not going to change it just because I grow up.

This is actually a very pretty name. It sounds much better than Raelyn, Braelyn, Kaylyn, and the likes. It also sounds much nicer than Shae on its own. I don't think there's any reason to rail against this name, unless you still wage a war against names like Marilyn and Sherilyn, which are also combinations of a name and the ending -lyn. The -lyn ending in nothing new, and it sure beats the horrendous -leen/lene, which always makes me think of ditzy country girls from the 1950s. This ending also sounds more mature than the -ey/ie ending, and it has a slightly old-fashioned, but charming feminine feel to it. That said, this doesn't exactly sound like the name of a future president or scientist, but not all names have to sound officious and serious, as most people wind up ordinary anyway. Of course, the name IS a bit cutesy and frilly for someone highly intelligent and ambitious.

Trashy and infantile. Don't like it. I like the names Shea and Lynn, but combined... not so much.

I know too many Shaylas and Shylahs and Shaylyns. So nah, wouldn't call my kid this. Too common. Kayla, Kaylee. It's all the same sound.

Shae is very tacky and stinks of trailer-park. Lyn is dull and overused. Slamming them together doesn't make a pretty name, just a weird mutation that really needs to disappear.

My friend's little cousin who was born last year had this name... I wasn't sure if it was even a real name, since her parents like to use "unique" names. I agree with the majority of you, as does my friend: this name is very childish and trendy sounding. I personally don't like Shae, it sounds like the kind of name a redneck or a teen mom would have. And adding -lyn to every other name doesn't make it pretty, Madelyn being the only exception. Made up names don't work, people!

Shaelyn means "Faerie palace" in Gaelic.

One of my best friends is called Shaelyn. Her full names are (Shaelyn Izabelle Rebeccanne Kascarichia Abela] and she is one of the nicest people I know. The people who said it's tacky or 'stinks of trailer park' don't know what they're talking about. It's a lovely name and it's great to have rarer names.

This is the real name of 15 year old Scottish dancer Shaelene-Claire Thomason.

I think I'm getting tired of hearing all these names ending in -lyn now..-.
