My daughter's name is Kaitlyn Hope. My husband and I couldn't agree on a girls name before she was born and we picked this the day before. We both agreed and I picked this spelling which I love. We also call he Katie and Kate

05/16/2023 09:11:14

I always wanted this to be my name, when I was younger and my friends and I would play little games, my friend Chantelle would be like, "Okay Brianna, what do you want your name to be in the game?" and I could always remember answering "Kaitlyn!"...although one of my friends that'sometimes played with us was named Katelynn and hated the fact I'd use her name, lol. But yeah, I love this name, It's definitely my favorite, and if You're named this, You're really lucky!

05/06/2023 12:36:24

My name is Kaitlyn Marie. There are so many people with the'same first name and i've met several people with the'same first and middle name. I like the way It'sounds and the way it looks when written. My family calls me Katie and my friends call me Kaitlyn or Kait. :)

04/29/2023 02:30:36

not many people say my name wrong but most people spell it wrong but o well!!! THE NAME KAITLYN IS THE BEST NAME EVER!!!

04/19/2023 09:27:22

I completely love this name. Even'though, I'm not called Kaitlyn I know a couple of girls who are and I'm soooo secretly jealous of all of them! I so wish my parents could have thought of this one!! It's unique, cool, and you can derive so many nick names out of it!! Name your kid this!! Beli've me, she'll be eternally thankful!

03/30/2023 03:21:50

my name is Kaitlyn and im almost 18. I don't really like how every where I go, someone is named Kaitlyn. but i do like the'spelling Kaitlyn better than Caitlin or Kaitlin.

03/28/2023 04:02:52

I used to not like my name because so many people in my school had the same name as me, but then i grew to like it when i realized that no one i know spells it like i do! So i Love it!

03/17/2023 00:18:54

Kaitlyn is the worst name ever. Sounds like a strippers name.

02/28/2023 09:12:50

I'm 13 and i don't think any of my teache's has ever'spelt my name correctly (on first try). I'mostly go by Kate anyway.i like my name but i'd never name my kid kaitlyn or kate.

02/25/2023 09:47:56

02/21/2023 16:45:02

My Name is Kaitlyn Marie, and I used to not like my name because it was so soft and sweet, very girly but know I love it. I don't know many other Kaitlyn's (I only know three and only one spells her name the'same way so the name is unique but not out of the blue. I perfer to just go by Kaitlyn, although some call me Kait, and even fewer call me Kaity, one person even has tried to get everyone to call me Lyn. Most of my nicknames are personality or appearance based. I love my name, and I would recommend anyone to name their daughter that, although I would suggest a different middle name.

02/21/2023 10:52:22

01/04/2023 09:39:10

Ugh. My ex's name was Nick. He was probably the most selfish, egocentric jerk in the history of selfish egocentric jer's.

12/16/2022 23:21:00

My name is Katlyn. People mispell and mispronounce it daily. Everyone says KAT-lynn but its pronounced KATE-lynn. i've never met anyone who spelled their name the'same as me. I like the unique spelling though.

12/06/2022 10:01:04

I am a Caitlin and I think Kaitlyn is way too popular.

11/10/2022 09:47:52

My name is Kaitlyn Renee, and I don't really like my first name all that much. It's always getting spelled wrong. No one that I know has the'same name as me, I just don't like how It'sounds. I go by Kate, It's just so much easier than "Kaitlyn".

09/28/2022 17:00:26

This is my baby's middle name. Mekhi Javon, I still don't know what it means though

09/14/2022 08:51:48

I have a daughter named Kaitlyn. originally I had wanted to spell it Caitlin but my husband said Kaitlyn was a better'spelling. I never knew till she was born (in 2018) just how popular this name and especially this spelling was.

09/14/2022 00:55:42

My daughter's name is Kaitlyne... no one ever'spells it correctly. The nicknames vary from Katie, Kattie, Kat, Kate, Kitty Kat. She loves her name because it IS different.

09/08/2022 19:26:16

I love my name Kaitlyn, but I go by Kaity, because no one that I know goes by the name Kaity! It's unique and not like all the other "Katie" in the world.

08/25/2022 08:42:18

07/12/2022 17:01:48

I love my name: KAITLYN. its basically amazing. ther's only 1 other girl in the'school with the'same spelling as me. BUT I LOVE IT! Some people call me kate,or katie..there are so many different ways to spell them!

05/21/2022 01:24:54

Obviously the most populay spellings of the name, but one of the prettiest. I am a Caitlin, but Kaitlyn is okay,too. I just can't stand It'spelled Caitlyn or Katelyn. I like most of the other'spellings, though

04/15/2022 05:18:54

my name is kaitlyn rose. i love it. i have always gone by kaitlyn and NEVER katie. I HATE going by katie, kate is ok though. My dad made up a bunch of cute nicknames for me: kaders, kader-patater, kakey, kakelyn all sorts of stuff. this name rocks!! Name your daughters KAITLYN, and use this spelling cuz it beats all =)

03/24/2022 05:21:36

I absolutely LOVE having this name and this spelling. I think that it is soo beautiful when written out! Although it does get annoying when people misspell it. But you learn to live with it. My name is Kaitlyn Sierra and I think that it flows so beautifully :) It's such an uncommon spelling amongst my school, and It's so much fun whenever there's another Kaitlyn :) i've been called many nicknames: Kat, Kates, KIt's, Kaity-lyn, Kaitie, Kit-Kat, Kaitlynie...the list goes on and on, haha. I love this name because you can have so many variations of it! c: c:

03/22/2022 04:51:54

I loooove this name, even it is VERY girly. My name is Kaitlyn Amanda. (: And nobody ever'spells it right. *sigh*

03/17/2022 22:23:06

My name is Kaitlyn. I'm currently 1n 7th grade and my friends at school ALWAYS spell my name incorectly. Normaly when my friends try and spell my name they try and add an extra "n" or they take out the "i" and add an "e" after the "t". I like my name okay but it can be a problem sometimes.

02/18/2022 03:21:00

My daughter's name is "Kaitlyn Elyse" together it means "pure gift of God". What better treasure for your child then'to know that'she is a gift from God. We call her Kait of Kaitie sometimes for short and love it!

12/21/2021 22:08:42

I'm lover of this name. I spell mine Kaitlynn though which is really uncommon. Everyone misspells it and I love it because its different :) My middle name is Taneal. <3 My nickname is KT :)

12/10/2021 02:29:42

T-shirt saying: ?Beam me up, Scotty. There is no intelligent life down here.?

12/05/2021 11:46:48

I'm Names Kaitlyn, I Get Called Katie Though. My Friends Say Its Such A Pretty Name For Cuz I'm Beautiful I Guess! xD Haha!

11/16/2021 04:47:24

The name Kaitlyn is really popular in Illinois. 6 of my friends have the'same name but are all spelled differently. That is the problem with this name, people can pronounce it but they never know how to spell it.

10/14/2021 20:52:12

i love my name'so much!!! my full name is Kaitlyn Mary Payne, and i think that it flows so well!! i also think that my name is beautiful, when you say it and when you write it! but it frustrates me a lot whenever people spell it wrong. but, a lot of people are being named Kaitlyn these days, but at least its usually spelled different...

09/20/2021 13:06:00

Kaitlyn is my name, and I am thirteen. I think It's very pretty. Although, EVERYWHERE I look I see things like magnets and necklaces with the'spelling Kaitlyn, so where I live It's a popular spelling. I think I like the "K" spelling more than the "C" spelling, I think "K"s are more feminine. Caitlin I just don't find as pretty-looking. I'mean, I do and I don't, I like "Lyn" more than "Lin". What I don't get is how Caitlin is the original spelling, because it would make more sense to have the original spellings of the two names, Kate and Lyn, join together to make the original spelling of Katelyn. My opinion, anyway.

09/18/2021 11:41:24

Kaitlyn is a strong, powerful but loving name for a female in this day and age.

09/16/2021 14:51:18

I like my name but way to many people with the'same name...

09/08/2021 00:03:54

My daughters name is Kaitlyn Elizabeth. Its pretty and classy. My daughter goes by Kait for short and also Kaity.

09/07/2021 16:44:42

Its my name, I love it, and forever will. I agree that it looks beautiful on paper. My mom did well. So if you don't like it deal with it. Kaitlyn Marie

09/06/2021 17:52:12

Love this name! I think It's beautiful and unique without being weird. My wife's name is Kaitlyn although most people spell it Caitlin accidentally. She goes by Kate which is more common, but I still like to call her by her full name too. I think It's beautiful.

09/06/2021 10:33:00

please add the pic of the guy in the guy in the pink jacket , cuz his name is Kaitlyn it would be really appreciated .. Thanks

08/17/2021 15:39:54

I have recently changed my name to Kaitlyn, at first I thought it was a bit to cute and baby'sh for a 20 yr old, I originally settled for Katie, but it needed more depth to it, some identity, so Kaitlyn finally worked. I LOVE it!

08/16/2021 03:58:48

My name is Kaitlyn Marlene. The only bad thing is that I grew up (I'm 17) with 5 other Kaitlyn's all spelled differently, we all wanted the nickname Katie. My siblings are named with "Ks", Kimberly and Kacie. And my niece, Korissa. So we always get mixed up by parents, family, and occasionally each other.

07/14/2021 12:44:24

I prefer my way, Kaitlin.
