my name :) i suppose its a nice name but i always have people spelling it wrong. its not caitlyn, caitlin or kaitlyn! its kate plus lyn.

My daughter's name which I think is beautiful. But greatly under'stimated how much the population was going to like it. Big Katelyn boom making the name common and over'sed.

2/1/2023 5:22:06 AM

I love my name, I think It's unique and beautiful. But I think all Katelyn's can agree It's just down right annoying when people spell it wrong! (:

this is the name of my little sister, but the name does not fit her. for she is not much of a friend.

People sometimes pronounce it 'katleen' We have shortened it to Katie for my daughter.

1/7/2023 1:25:36 AM

My name is Katelyn. My family calls me Katie. My name is always spelled wrong though. I don't think many people spell it ?Katelyn? anymore.

My name is Katelyn. What I dont like is that people spell it wrong. My bff call me Katie or KK which I dont know where that comes from. And my mom calls me KJ or Katie J. My last name'starts with J.

My name is Katelynd with a d I enjoy my name people get it confused with Kaitlyn or katelyn and I spell it correctly and their like Katelynd and I'm like yeah.

My daughter is named Katelynd! She was supposed to be a Kateland. I love it because it is a derivative of the name Catherine.

I just adore this name. We named our 7 yr old Katelyn. We knew it was popular but didn't care. It is just such a pretty, girly name. And we chose this spelling because we thought someday if she gets older and wants to go by Kate - it would be easy to do. She is now 7 years old and only goes by Katelyn though!

2/28/2022 4:54:36 AM

I know lots of people with the name Katelyn accept there are lots of different ways to spell it.

1/21/2022 8:12:36 PM

my name ! sometimes its okay , and sometimes its not but i go by katey [not katie]. i like katey better cause its my name minus the l and n.

1/14/2022 8:52:12 AM

I love my name, katelyn means pure and it is the irish spelling that's why it was not vary comen before the 1982's.

11/5/2021 3:20:06 PM

My parents told me that I was named after a stripper at my father's bachelor party. Her name was Caitlin, but my father wanted to spell it phonetically. When I was younger he called me Katie-lynn. I used to hate my name. Now I love it!

10/29/2021 2:09:54 AM

i love my name because no one else i know spells it like i do: Katelynn!!!! IT'S THE COOLIST NAME AROUND!!!!!!!

10/6/2021 4:08:42 PM

my Kaytlyn spells it different than any other i've seen - supposedly daddy found it on the internet but I hvent run across this paticular spelling anywhere else - it really stinks because she has one of the most popular names and still can not find anything with her name already on it ( pencil, stickers, necklace ) I know what shes going thru - my name is Jewel and i've never bought anything with my name on it :(

9/25/2021 12:09:18 AM

Hey...this is my name!! it is the best name in the world... I love my name and how its spelt!!

9/22/2021 9:49:48 PM

Katelyn is a beautiful, sweet, girly name. I heard it for the first time when I was 12 (1984) and vowed to name my daughter Katelyn. Ten years went by and I never met another Katelyn until I became a high school teacher. I had one in every class - spelled every way except "Katelyn". Never met a Katelyn I didn't like and after 8 years of teaching I had a baby girl: Katelyn Allison.
