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

03/01/2022 23:54:54

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!

02/28/2022 04:54:36

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

01/14/2022 08:52:12

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.

11/05/2021 15:20:06

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 02:09:54

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

10/06/2021 16:08:42

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 :(

09/25/2021 00:09:18

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

09/22/2021 21:49:48

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.
