Etymology & Historical Origin - Kaylen

In 1987 in the United States the names Kaylyn and Kaylin landed positions on the Top 1000 list of baby girl names. They were most likely inspired by popular names like Kayla and Caitlin. As invented names, “Kaylyn” and her respelled sisters don’t really have any specific meaning; rather, they were coined for their appealing and/or trendy sounds. Kaylyn could be said to mean “Kay’s lake” from the name Kay plus Lynn (“llyn” being the Welsh word for “lake”). But this is a stretch. In truth, Kaylyn was just another stylish name choice of the time. Kayla, Kaylee, Katelyn, Kayleen, etc. Not only that, but American parents just love to respell these types of names in all sorts of creative ways. Just consider the eight spellings currently in play: Kaelyn, Kailyn, Kaylin, Kaylynn, Kaylyn, Kaylen, Cailyn and Kaelynn (roughly in order of popularity). None of these names is as popular as they once were, but they all remain on America’s Top 1000 list.

Popularity of the Name Kaylen

Kaylen has been around since 1998 and has always been one of the least popular of all the Kaylyn spellings. The highest point Kaylen has ever achieved on the Top 1000 list is position #690 in 2009 (which demonstrates pretty low usage). Collectively, because there are so many variant spellings of Kaylen in circulation, the name is actually more popular than first meets the eye. However, most of them are trending backwards at this point. It seems she may be headed out of style. Not to mention, she has even more competition from the Jaelynn and Raelynn crowd.
