Re: Need help with name spelling!

this was our fav name for dd#2 but then a friend used the name a couple of months before us so we changed it. We were going to use Katelyn, b/c I also wanted to be able to shorten it to Kate or Katie, and figured that spelling was most condusive to that.

Re: Need help with name spelling!

Personally, I like the third option "Katelynn" but I like the way the NN looks. My daughter is Adrianna, which is traditionally with 1 N but I opted for 2 because I liked the way it looked.

Re: Need help with name spelling!

While I think the name is most traditionally spelled with a C, if you want it to begin with K I think that "Kaitlyn" is the most traditional spelling.

The spelling I'm most familiar with is Caitlin, so I guess I'm just choosing the one that is closest to that.

Re: Need help with name spelling!

I vote for either of the first two. My favorite would be Katelyn. In my DS's school (K4-8th grade) there is:

2 Katelyn, 1 Caitlin, 1 Kaitlin, 2 Kaitlyn, and 1 Katelin.

Agreed, on the basis of the shortening the name. Kate is a lot more common than Kait. So if she ever wanted to shorten Katelyn would be way easier, and I think is the spelling I have seen more often.

Thanks for all the input ladies! I think we have agreed on Katelyn. Now off to start personalizing stuff!

Funny, my daughter's name is Caitlyn and we never wondered how we'd spell it. That's got to be tricky to decide! I may be partial, but I like Kaitlyn (had I not done a c like my name to make it so hubs and my son were "L" and my daughter and I are "c", I would have spelled it with a K). I'm not sure if Caitlyn with a K has the sane meaning, but with a C, it means "pure". Maybe the meanings will
