Comments and insights on the name Kalen: | Edit

Although boys can be named Kalen, I wouldn't use it since more girls are named this than boys. Also it can be confused as Kaitlyn which is also a girl's name. If you like the sound of Kalen, I would go with Galen instead since it is only a boy's name. In fact, one of the most famous ancient physicians was named Galen.

My husbands name is Kalen and EVERYONE is always like "What?!" It's not a very common name in general and then for a boys name, it's pretty much unheard of. He got made fun of in high school by people calling him Kaitlyn and stuff.

One of my best friend's brother's name is Kaelan. At first I thought it was weird for a guy (partly because I'd been watching the Legend of the Seeker series with a female character named Kahlan Amnell), but after only a few days I realized how well his name fit his personality and fits in with his siblings' names. Now I think Kalen seems more like a boy's name that has become popular for girls (ex. Sidney).
