Etymology & Historical Origin - Kaylin

Kaylin is another Americanized respelling of Kaylynn which itself is a modern invention created from taking the name Kay and combining it with the popular suffix “-lyn(n)”. The female name Kay originally developed as a short form of Katherine. Lynn comes from a Welsh word meaning ‘lake’. The name Kaylin is part of a much larger naming trend specific to the United States which incorporates different sounds and elements to create brand new names. Kaylee, Kayla, Kylie and Kinley are other “Kaylin” type examples. Names like Jaelyn and Raelyn have also been invented from the American imagination. These types of names are pretty distinct to the United States (and occasionally show up on the Canadian or Australian naming charts). But Great Britain and Ireland are more traditional and conservative in their naming practices. Kaylin is very modern and very American.

Popularity of the Name Kaylin

Kaylin first appeared on the female charts in 1987 and has climbed to levels of light moderation. This spelling is the second most popular after Kaelyn. However, be forewarned, these “Kaylin” names often get confused with Katelyn (Caitlin) so your daughter will likely be correcting other people most of her life. Some people don’t find this bothersome while others do. It’s just something to consider. Kaylin has a cute sound for little girls and ages relatively well into adulthood. It’s more pretty than cutesy (like Kaylee for instance). Kaylin is an attractive name for nontraditional parents who prefer sounds over substance. In other words, Kaylin has a pretty sound (feminine, modern, straight-forward), as opposed to names rooted in etymological substance (more traditional names derived from specific languages with specific meanings).
