Almost never spelled or pronounced correctly - often called Kaitlyn
We named our daughter Kailyn to get Nickname Kallie/Callie. Wish I had thought of the sp. Caelyn, instead of Kailyn. Considered Cailyn, but expected confusion in a sea of Cai's (Ki). Callie was a concern because of several calico cats in extended family named Callie.
My husband and I really liked this name. My mother in law's middle name is Kaye and my mother's middle name is Lynn. It is a cool combination of the two and a really pretty name. It has both of their name's in there so neither one can start whining about who she's named after..haha.
