Kylin Name Meaning & Origin

Kylin

Pronunciation: KIY-lin (key)

This was an Australian name, but it fit perfectly into American tastes. So when American parents encountered the name via Aussie entertainer Kylie Minogue, they jumped on it. There is no standard spelling in the U.S., but Kylie and Kylee are the most common.

Comments and insights on the name Kylin: | Edit

Well my name is Kylin Rae. Most call me Kye(: I am fourteen and have red hair and green eyes. And the reason I was named Kylin is because my mom's middle name is Lin. & She wanted me to start with K. So. Ky-lin came in. After she researched it she now knows that it is Japanese(: (edit: i am not kylin rae, i am kylin naomi, but i can conclude that the name kylin isnt japanese, it is closer to chinese. my mother who was born and raised in japan cant pronounce kylin, she says “ki-dien.” not exactly kidien, its just hard to type. its the letter that japanese people do when its between an l, an r but also has a hint of a d, if you understand what i mean. that is all :)
