Gender: F Meaning of Kaitlyn: "pure" Origin of Kaitlyn: Spelling variation of Caitlin Kaitlyn's Popularity in 2014: #158

A huge name over the past few decades, Kaitlyn's just started dropping down the charts while others -- the original Caitlin and Kaitlin, for instance -- have been moving down for some time. No matter how you spell it, Kaitlyn, now still at Number 158 and given to more than 2,000 girls last year, has at this point been considerably overused and can no longer be seen as stylish. It's especially popular in Canada, where it is ranked at Number 70.
