Personal Impression
My name is Caryn. It's pronounced Car-in like car in the garage. My parents got it from a Swedish newspaper. I love the way it's pronounced. It's unique. Although people like to call me Karen.

I am told by a Welsh woman this was a common name in the 1920-30's in Wales. She says this was the favored spelling, I don't know if it was her opinion or fact, but I love it. It sounds the same as Karen. This personality can be sneaky but has a very tender heart and loves very deeply.

I like the name Caryn, it is a name not a lot of people have and it's pretty.

I simply adore this name. It's the only spelling variation of "Karen" that I like. It has a natural, fun, and intelligent feeling to it. Not to mention, with such an interesting spelling you're not likely to find too many kids in the same school with this name.

Why do people spell names with a Y replacing an I? This just drives me crazy when I see it. Karen or Caren or Carin or Karin, just not Caryn.

I believe that in the US the name Caryn is pronounced similar to Karen, but my name is pronounced CAR-IN, more like the Corinne version of the name.

Caryn is actually pronounced "Ka-rin" not "KER-in". There is the same emphasis on both sylables.
