Personal experiences with the name Matilyn: | Edit

While pregnant with my first child, I wanted to name her after my sister (Shailyn) and my husband ( at the time- Matthew). My mother suggested I "morph" the names together and see what happens, after several goofy names, I got Matilyn :-). I pronounced it "Madeline" and it wasn't until her first doctor's appointment the nurse called out MateLyn at the door....then squinting she called out " Mattie-Lynn, that's when I realized my baby had a tough name to pronounce. We started calling her "Mattie" and she is now in 5th grade, has not yet discovered her name is not Madeline ;)
