Etymology & Historical Origin - Kaylyn

Kaylyn is an American name that combines Kay and Lynn (although in this case the last “n” is dropped off the end for a more minimalistic version of Kaylynn). The female name Kay originally developed as a short form of Katherine, while Lynn comes from a Welsh word (llyn) meaning “lake”. The name Kaylyn is part of a much larger naming trend specific to the United States which incorporates different sounds and elements to create brand new names such as Jaelyn and Raelyn. Not only do some American parents have a penchant for coining new names, but they also have a fondness for creative spelling alterations. Kaylyn is one of eight spellings of this particular name currently in circulation: Cailyn, Kaelyn, Kaelynn, Kailyn, Kaylen, Kaylin, Kaylyn and Kaylynn.

Popularity of the Name Kaylyn

Kaylyn first appeared on the American female naming charts in 1987 and gained most of its traction during the 1990s. The high point of Kaylyn’s career on the charts came in 1997 at position #519 – not super high but collectively these “Kaylyn” names were somewhat successful in the 1990s overall. They were all riding the wave of popularity created by Kayla – an ϋber-trendy girl’s name in the 1980s and 90s (still a Top 100 favorite). Now that we’ve entered the 21st century, however, Kaylyn is headed back down the Top 1000 list as she’s showing clear signs of wear and tear. So many spellings of the same name has a tendency to create an overkill situation. And kids given such names are forced to go through life confirming and reconfirming the spelling of their name – some people are not bothered by this but a lot of people are.
