I'm a girl. I love my name, however, I always have to introduce myself as "Kaylen, no t"

11/10/2023 21:12:20

My daughter was born July 24, 2019. I am right now in the process searching for the meaning of her name. I read a message posted on her birthday saying that'she had to intoduce he'self with the "no t". We introduce my baby the'same way. :) I love her name Kaylen Dawn

10/26/2023 20:53:52

my name is kaylen and i love it its really nice but people always get my name wrong or spell it with two e's or say kaytlin or kayleen with the e's sounding long

10/25/2023 20:47:56

my little girls name is Kaylen & I would not have it any other way. She is as sweet as can be. she i now 6 months old & I love her & her name'so much!!! <3<3

10/20/2023 12:04:32

My name is Kaylen and i've always loved my name. It's hard to tell people my name when I go to coffee shops because I have a southern accent and they think I say Taylor or Kayla. But my biggest pet peeve is when someone calls me Kaitlin.

10/19/2023 22:51:02

Well, my name is Kecia, also. I am caucasian, and it is properly pronounced Key-c-a. I was named after Kecia Neiman (sp?) who was modeling in 1977. I don't like having a different name! Everytime I'meet someone, I have to explain where, why, how I got the name. Ack!

10/09/2023 22:44:36

We live in New Zealand and Kaia is our daughter's name. We thought people here would have no trouble with pronunciation as 'Kai' is a word in Maori (indiginous NZ language) and known and used commonly by all New Zealanders but spelling is a different matter and even close frends and family sometimes spell it Kia. It drives me nuts! Some people pronounce it Kia (Key-ah)and I am always flummoxed by how they can get that from the actual spelling. Oh well, It's a small sacrifice for a beautiful name.

10/08/2023 00:00:54

My name is Kaylen Renee, and I was born in 2002. My family and close friends call me Kay. I used to HATE my name when I was little, and wanted to change it to a "normal" name like Sarah or Kayla. Now, though, I absolutely adore my name. I wouldn't give it up for the world! You meet a lot of Sarahs and Kaylas in the world, but how many Kaylens? (Apparently more than I thought, judging by this site!)

10/07/2023 14:36:38

people always pronounce it as kayleen or something other than what it is. Its not hard It'sounds exactly like its spelt. when i tell them my name they say 'what?' and i have to repeat it over and over again. It gets annoying sometimes but its different.

10/04/2023 19:00:58

I love my name! It's Kaylen! But you will never find a backpack, water bottle, keychain and so on that has Kaylen on it! It's rather not even an option or It's spelled differently.

09/25/2023 06:04:36

I love my name! My parents concocted it for me from my two grandmothe's Kay and Helen. So I'm Kaylen Joy, i get the KayJay from some of my aunts. I love that It's not a name you hear all the time, but if it is slightly annoying getting called katelyn. oh well, i'll take it!

08/08/2023 01:37:26

My husband named our grandaughter. His name is Glen Kay. Switch it around, drop the G and you have Kaylen! Kaylen Hope gets so annoyed when people call her Kaitlyn and this 6 year old is quick to correct, their mistake, pointing out the fact that a T was not enunciated when'told them her name.

08/03/2023 09:03:52

I had the name Kaylen picked out when i was 16 years old. I knew that if i ever was.blessed.with a daughter, that would be her name. When i looked in the baby book when i found out i was pregnant at 20, the name wasnt in there but i didnt care. Since then 4 years later, it has become much popular. My 3 year old beautiful daughter is Kaylen Ireland Elizabeth. She loves her name, which for that i am thankful. Thumbs up to every Kaylen out there!! :)

08/01/2023 04:09:52

My name is Kaylen, I always used to think that like no one had that name but I guess I was wrong. It kind of bugs me a little when I get called Kaitlyn or Kayleen but you just get used to it. I love my name I think mainly because It's different. My name is Kaylen Koontz I usually go by KK or Koontz. I guess that's a little easier to say/spell.

07/15/2023 06:18:14

In response to the Kaylen who was born in 2002, sorry to uproot you from your position, but I was born in Aprilof 2001 as a girl Kaylen! I always get compliments on my name, everyone says It's so pretty and I have grown to love it!

My name is Kaylen, and it has It's ups and downs. I personally like it, but some people often pronounce it as 'Kayleen'. It reflects some of my Scottish Gaelic and Ukrainian/Russian background. If you want to name your kid Kaylen, maybe pick a spelling like Kaylin instead.

05/27/2023 02:38:02

My daughter's name is Kaylen and we LOVE it! She was named after my parents (Kay and (G)len). She gets called Kaitlyn a lot, but at 5 she now will respond with "There's not a T in it!" 8)

03/01/2023 22:49:54

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.

03/01/2023 12:32:44

02/15/2023 17:55:14

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!

02/12/2023 10:34:14

01/07/2023 05:14:50

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 00:02:42

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 17:34:36

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

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 15:19:18

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

12/13/2022 06:00:28

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

12/09/2022 20:00:46

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 17:50:54

11/22/2022 20:40:58

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 04:36:24

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.

09/25/2022 23:28:12

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.

09/24/2022 01:37:24

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!!!

09/20/2022 12:59:00

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.

09/14/2022 07:06:00

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(:

09/10/2022 15:48:54

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.

09/09/2022 22:28:32

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

08/23/2022 13:42:00

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.

08/21/2022 02:13:30

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.

08/17/2022 01:14:06

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.

07/05/2022 23:59:24

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.

06/27/2022 19:15:54

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

06/17/2022 07:38:24

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.

05/30/2022 16:54:36

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.

04/29/2022 04:12:18

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 :)

04/18/2022 04:41:06

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! (=
