Etymology & Historical Origin - Kailyn

Kailyn is an altered spelling of Kaylyn, which is simply the marriage of two other names: Kay and Lynn. It was also probably inspired by names like Kaitlyn (sic) and Kailee (sic). These are basically modern American inventions and have no formal place in the English language other than having been essentially made up through the combining of two appealing sounds. Kay is nothing more than a name that was developed as a short form for “K” names (like Jay for “J” names) and Lynn has become a popular suffix “caboosing” the end of many female names since the latter half of the 20th century. Therefore, a name like Kailyn is an invention and therefore has no real etymology or meaning.

Popularity of the Name Kailyn

Kailyn first appeared on the U.S. female naming charts in 1993 which makes it a pretty recent entrant. The name has climbed from “nowhere-ville” to levels of relatively moderate use all things considered. The 1990s were a pretty extreme decade for these types of made-up names and mutated spellings. Any attractive or pretty quality a name like Kailyn may have is all but lost in the noise. There are way too many variants of this name. It’s utterly confusing and therefore maddening (which is why you hear a lot of negative comments and grumblings out there in society). Just consider: Kayla, Caelie, Caileigh, Cailin, Cailyn, Caleigh, Cayley, Kaelea, Kaelee, Kailee, Kailey, Kaleigh, Kaley, Kalie, Kalyn, Kayleah, Kaylee, Kayleen, Kayleigh, Kayley, Kaylie, Kaylin, Kayly, Kaylyn, Kaylynn, Keighley, Keila. Need we say more? There’s no denying that these names sound cute (or rather “cutesy”), but there will be constant spelling corrections faced by your child. May be a small price to pay for such a “darling” name, but it is something to consider.
