My name is Kaitlynn Ann, both Irish. I like the spelling of Kaitlynn this way because it's cute and I have yet to find someone else who spells it like this. My mom wanted to name me after my grandmother Catherine Ann who is from Ireland but she wanted it to be unique at the same time, so she chose this version instead. Everyone calls me Katie or Katie Ann for short.
i love this nameee

I really like my name, because I really think it suits me and some of my ancestors were Irish, so I think this is really cool. I recently found out, that in 2007 the name Kaitlyn, spelled that way was one of the most popular names in the U.S. which I found pretty cool.

It always cracks me up, how many people think their name is unique! As I was growing up, I never heard of another Caitlyn, But everyone always commented on my lovely unusual name. The correct irish spelling is C-A-I-T-L-Y-N. There are two meaning's that I came across while researching the origin of the name Caitlyn. The first meaning is PURE (like so many websites tell you) However the other meaning, (the original meaning) is "BEAUTIFUL FLOWER". I love my name as well, and it would seem like all Caitlyn's do love their name and obviously we're all outgoing and like talking about ourselves and our name. My name is also Caitlyn Anne, and I to was named after my aunt catherine and my aunt anne. We are not as unique as we'd all like to think. I hate how common Caitlyn has become, but I am toying with the idea of naming my daughter Caitlyn, if it's a girl! I am 12 weeks along. I've yet to meet a boring, quiet, dull Caitlyn. I think the meaning of "caitlyn" should be changed to "high maintenance"!!!

I love my name Kaitlyn, but I go by Kaity, because no one that I know goes by the name Kaity! It's unique and not like all the other "Katie" in the world.
