Etymology & Historical Origin - Kaylynn

Kaylynn is yet another spelling variation of a recently invented name. The name obviously comes from the marriage of sounds created by the combination of Kay and Lynn. The female name Kay originally developed as a short form of Katherine. Lynn comes from a Welsh word (llyn) meaning “lake”. The name Kaylynn 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 “Kaylynn” type examples. Names like Jaelynn and Raelynn 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. Kaylynn is very modern and very American.

Popularity of the Name Kaylynn

Kaylynn first appeared on the female naming charts in 1992 and reached as high as position #513 on the charts in 2009. This means Kaylynn has experienced low to low-moderate success since her debut. In the past couple of years, the name has been showing signs of wear and tear. We’re not surprised either since there are currently eight different spelling variations of this made-up name on the charts. That’s a lot of competition (and a little overplayed). Kaelyn is the most preferred spelling, followed closely by Kailyn and Kaylin. This spelling (i.e., Kaylynn) is the fourth most popular of the Kaylynn names. Rounding out the bottom are Kaylyn, Kaylen, Cailyn and Kaelynn. This many spelling variations is a little insufferable, but it’s clear that American parents will keep on doing two things: one, invent new names; and two, use “kutesy” and “kreative” spellings of names. Kaylynn is, however, arguably the most pure spelling of Kay + Lynn. So at least it has that going for it.
