My aunt (60+) is Kathlyn and goes by Kathy. The story goes that my grandparents couldn't decide between Kathryn and Kathleen. My grandfather suggested the compromise, which would also honor another family member named Lynn. I think it's a pretty name and seems very timeless for both her generation and new little ones.
I am 23 and my name is Kathlyn SueAnn. My aunt actually came up with this because my mom wanted to name me after everyone, my grandmother Katherine, my aunt with the middle name Lynn, my other grandmother with the middle name Sue, and another aunt with the middle name Ann. To me this is the perfect combination. For some reason, I assume because most people don't pay attention, it is always mispronounced, so I usually go by Kate.
