Etymology & Historical Origin - Cailyn

Cailyn is a variant spelling of Kaylyn. Kaylyn is really a name without meaning – more of a contemporary coinage, inspired by names like Katelyn and Kaylee. Kaylyn could be said to be a combination of the names Kay and Lynn, whereby Kay is a common pet form of Katherine (meaning “pure, innocent, clear”) and Lynn comes from the Welsh “llyn” meaning “lake”. It would be a stretch, but one could make an argument that Kaylyn (and thus Cailyn) means “pure lake”. In all reality, however, Cailyn is just an American invention created from appealing sounds. There are now eight spellings of Kaylyn on the U.S. charts today (roughly in order of popularity): Kaelyn, Kailyn, Kaylin, Kaylynn, Kaylyn, Kaylen, Cailyn and Kaelynn. A little overplayed at this point? You have to be the judge of that.

Popularity of the Name Cailyn

Cailyn debuted on the U.S. female naming charts in 2006. It is currently one of the least preferred of all the “Kaylyn” spellings now on the charts. Over 4,000 American baby girls get some form of this name on an annual basis, but only about 300 spell it Cailyn. We have to admit, eight different spelling options does create some confusion after a while. Girls with this name are now destined to go through life confirming and reconfirming the spelling of their name. Some people consider this a nuisance; others don’t. But it is something to think about.
