I named my son Kaylen I think its a lovely name that can be used by both male and female

3/1/2023 10:49:54 PM

People often spell it wrong like "Kalin" in letters or they will call me Katelyn. I do get compliments on it often'though because it is unique. I do get the nickname K-K from my friends but i guess that also because my last name'starts with a K. I have not had to many special experiences with it but I like it alot. I hope that other people will use this name in the future, it is a great name.

3/1/2023 12:32:44 PM

My name is Kaylen and I thought i was the only one who had the name because i never heard it before or no one spelled it like me and people always misprounce my name and spell it wrong they always spell it kahlen.

I just gave birth to a baby girl in Feb. 2021 and kaylen was the perfect name for her. I have had very posi've remarkson the name but lots of questions on the pronuciation. andi am very clear its (len) not Lynn!

2/12/2023 10:34:14 AM

I named my son Kaylen. I got it out of the girl section in to name book, but it was spelled different. I'met one other but her name was spelled Kaylynn and she was much older.

1/31/2023 8:47:46 AM

1/29/2023 10:42:18 PM

My name is Kaylen also, and yeah it does get really frustrating when people call me Kaitlyn, or spell it like "Kayleen". But my name is Kaylen Kyle, so i just have most people call me KK. :)

1/28/2023 12:33:52 AM

my name is kaylen Mari but i don't really like it that much everyone makes fun of me because of my name and the way its spelled my mom found it in the boys section of a baby book she really wanted a boy. but i am a tomboy and i love to hang out with the boys more than girls so my mom sortof got her wish

Kaylen is always mixed up with Kailin or Katylnn and It's really annoying. A lot of people have a hard time pronouncing it and It's really not as hard as it looks. The name came from the Russian name Kaylena. But we cut the a off because it rhymed with my last name. i've only met one other and It's really not that common but I like it, It's unique and different!

12/27/2022 12:02:42 AM

i named my daughter kaylen even before she was born i felt it in my heart that when she was born i knew this name would fit and sure enough she is my kaylen(my sweetheart)i haven't encountered anyone mispronouncing it but i've had people misspell it and i haven't met anyone else with it.and most of all she is very special....

12/23/2022 5:34:36 PM

Many people try to say it with a T if they have not seen'the'spelling before pronoucing it. I named my daughter Kaylen - her grandmother's names are Ester Kay and Joan Kay and she had two aunts Ellen Margaret and Jean Ellen - so we combined Kay and len (from Ellen) to form Kaylen.

12/23/2022 11:24:18 AM

Born in February 2010, I named my daughter Kaylen Nycole and like most of you, she has the'same problem. Most of the time she is called "Kaitlyn" or "Kayla" She used to correct her first cousin who would call her "Kaitlyn", now, she doesn't respond when he calls her that... instead she makes him correct himself before she answers. :-) I LOVE her name and always have!!!

12/21/2022 3:19:18 PM

Does anybody know the meaning of Kaylen? I would really like to know.

12/13/2022 6:00:28 AM

People pronounce it wrond ALL THE TIME!!! It is pronounces KAY-LEN exactly the way It's spelled.

12/9/2022 8:00:46 PM

My Parents names are Kay and Len so they put it together. I grew up in Australia where it is not common (I never heard anyone else with that name there) but since I have moved to the US I hear it alot more and people have less problem spelling and pronouncing it here

11/29/2022 5:50:54 PM

well my name is Keesha Rai and I'm 15 years old I'm from Houston, TX! I love my name people have some trouble sometimes spelling and saying it but i think It's really funny hahaha! anyway yeah i like my name, It's cool!anyway, a name, like it or not, will always be yours so better'start to like it now :)

11/27/2022 6:49:34 PM

My name is kaylen and alot of people call me kaytlyn cause they think thats what i said. but i know alot of people who think its spelt "kaylin" or "KayLynn"

11/22/2022 8:40:58 PM

My name is Kaylen and I too get very irritated when people call me Kaitlyn and Kayleen (that's the worst). It makes my skin crawl. I was born in the 60's and never heard of another Kaylen until I was nearly 20.

11/11/2022 4:36:24 AM

my name is kaylen, pretty mushc every single person I'meet, I have to say "NO T" because they think its kaytlen. I don't meet many other people with this name, but I like it, It's different, I'm glad I'm not just another ashley...

9/28/2022 7:36:10 AM

My name is Kaylen and I used to hate it but i have learned to love it. Although it is very agrivating when people call me kaitlyn or kayleen.

9/25/2022 11:28:12 PM

I named my baby Kaylen after the OJ Simpson trail which i was pregnant when'that was going on. I thought it was a different yet pretty name. After'she was born the name became more popular.

9/24/2022 1:37:24 AM

My name is Kaylen and I love my name! A lot of people call me Kaitlyn or Kayla but I don't care. I always correct them anyways. P.S. Take a blank coffee mug and paint it to say 'Kaylen'. Even add some decorations!!!

9/20/2022 12:59:00 PM

My name is Kaylen, and I have yet to actually meet someone with the name Kaylen and spelled exacly like mine. I love it, but I get called Kaytlin alot and it was plain annoying. I was also called Kayla just because it was easier. I didn't mind it as much because only a few guys called me that. And something that I don't get is that'some websIt's say that "Kaylen" is a boys name. but I still love my name and I'm proud to be called Kaylen.

9/14/2022 7:06:00 AM

My name is Kaylen Rene'. I was born in may '95, my sister picked my name even'though she was fi've. I love my name. Even if you can't find it on key chains or anything. I think that makes it more unique. I never thought a lot of people had this name, but now looking at all the Kaylens', it kinda amazing how many there aree. Welll, yeaah. <3(:

9/10/2022 3:48:54 PM

My name is Kaylen Nicole :). I was born in '95 and for part of elementary school I didn't really like it becasue everyone called me Kaitlyn. But now I love it because none of my friends have the name. So I think it is very unusal and pretty. And people always miss pronounce it... just break it up into two syllables; KAY-LEN.. Kaylen :). I love my name and am very proud of it.

9/9/2022 10:28:32 PM

my name is Kaylen and i hate it cause i can never find my name any where i thought it was my mom that was the retarded one but looking at everyone else i guess it wasnt her its just a wonderfull name that our mothe's and fathe's gave us and it is an awsome and unique name

8/23/2022 1:42:00 PM

i've named my daughter Kaylen Rebekah I hope she likes it when she is older, I chose it because it is unusual and very pretty.

8/21/2022 2:13:30 AM

My name is Kaylen, and I'm surprised that It's as popular as it is. I know one person at school who pronounces (Kay-lynn) and spells her name exactly like me, and another girl who's name is pronounced like mine. I like having a rather unique name and the pronunciation problems have worn off in recent years, though I still have problems with people who've never'seen my name'spelled calling me Kaitlin.

8/17/2022 1:14:06 AM

Well I love it. My name is paisley. I am pleased it is a growing name because I'm the only paisley in my hole town.

7/5/2022 11:59:24 PM

My name is Kaylen. I was born in 2002 and was the 1st girl to ever be named Kaylen according to the census bureau and any historical record that me and my mother have searched. However it was used as a boys name and is a variation of Caelan in Gaelic. Though I sometimes hate it when people try to spell it or send invitations to me or papers because they spell it wrong also the computers say it never exists so they try to correct it.

6/27/2022 7:15:54 PM

My name is Kaylen and for a while i never met anyone e=with the'same name. now i know a few but they spell it cailin. I love my name because not many people are named kaylen

6/17/2022 7:38:24 AM

my name is Kaylen, and the biggest problem that i have with it is that people call me Kaylyn, but i pronounce it Kay-len you are supposed to say the end with less stress. I know of 2 other people with my name. i've never met them, but i've heard of them. I love my name because its not kaitlyn. so many people have that name, and I'm glad that im a variation of it.

5/30/2022 4:54:36 PM

Kaylen is my 12 year old daughter's name and I picked it for her before she was born. It's funny how a name'suits someone like they were meant to be that name. She is "Kaylen"...not Kay, not Kayle, not Lynn...Kaylen...and yes, people call her Kaitlyn or misspell it; but I just go along with it.

4/29/2022 4:12:18 AM

I'm so impressed that there are so many Kaylen's out there, here I was thinking I was the only one! I am a 2002's girl, am I seriously one of the first girl Kaylen's? How exciting! And yes, it is amazing how hard people find this name to pronounce...i've been called almost everything everyone else has said. It's so original :)

4/18/2022 4:41:06 AM

My name is Kaylen Elizabeth! Here i thought i was the first and only one to have this name! My mom thought she created it... She took Kaylee and Katelyn! And got Kaylen!I have met 3 girls with my name! All spelled different Calyn. Kaylan. And Kailyn! But never like mine! And no one i knows has ever met any one with my name! I used to hate it because i couldnt ever get any of the pencils with my name on it. Or the rulers or the little Christmas ornaments. But i love my name! I was born feb. 2005! It always makes me mad when i get called outta my name... Katelyn! Im always like thats not my name, or Kayleen. I hate it! But i Love my name! (=
