First reaction is a girl but after thinking about it, I like it for a boy also.

Re: Kailin: Boy or Girl?

A lot depends on the spelling, IMO.
Kailin, to me, is definitely girl.
But Caelen, or Kalen would be a boy.

Kind of like Erin/Aaron. Sounds the same, but one is totally girl, and the other is totally boy.

Re: Kailin: Boy or Girl?

I think girl although I went to elementary school witha boy named Kaylin, I'm not sure how it was spelled but it was spoken Kaylin. We talked about Kilian for a boy but I wouldn't do Cailin or anything like that for a boy personally.

My grown male cousin is Kalin. However, I know quite a few girls with the name, so I'd say either way

Re: Kailin: Boy or Girl?

For me it is a girl name, I was going to name dd2 Kahlan after one of my fave characters from legend of the seeker series, when I looked it up, I found it is actually a boy's name.
I still like it but we didn't go with it.

My niece is named Caelyn, so I definitely thought girl.

I voted girl but I also named my son august not realizing that most people think it's a girl name. Smart idea to see peoples reactions to it first, although I'm glad we named him that way.

Yeah I still put it on the list. I'm glad at least a few people think boy.
