My name is Caroline and like many commenters have said, lots of older people call me Carolyn and even write it on papers, addresses, and in emails. I hate that pronunciation as It'sounds old and like a 40-60 year old aunt. No hate on 40-60 year old aunts, I just feel like a 19 year old shouldn't be called that. I also can't stand the'song "Sweet Caroline' because it was constantly played for me. Family tends to call me Caro or Liney, and i've used CeCe instead of Caroline C. when'there are multiple Carolines. i've had a significant other refer to me as Caro and Car, which I thought was cute but the latter always sounded weird to me. I think my name works for all ages and will continue to fit me as I age.

My names Caroline, but everyone calls me Cari. I think names that are old fashioned look and sound a lot better. Personally, Jacqueline looks a lot more sophisticated that Jaclyn.

My name is Caroline and I love it! I was the only Caroline in my graduating class. Now that I'm in college, there are more Carolines. However, everyone calls me Carolyn. It's so annoying, but I tell them to pronounce it like It's spelled. CaroLINE.

my name is caroline also, and i agree with all of us who correct those who cannot pronounce what is clearly written in black and white. my husband used to get mad at me but it is MY name not his that is being abused. it would also happen with my daughters name, Kristin. how hard is that!

I love the name; It's elegant. My parents shortened it to Cal which I also love, when I was a child. This was before the fI'm ?Cal? came out in Ireland. I like it that it is not too popular.

My name is Caroline and I love it. I was named after Caroline Kennedy. I prefer girls names that do not end in the letter a. Caroline is a strong name, but femimine and sphistcated at the'same time.
