I'd pronounce Malin Mahlin at first glance.
I like Maylin and Maelin. Mailen makes me think of Mailing.I’m just trying to behave as I think a friend should behave. Granted, I haven’t had much practice.

I like it. I remember hearing someone mention the name while I was an intern at an organization a couple years ago. I assumed it was Mei-Lin, and that she was Chinese, but it could have been Maylin/Maelyn. I do like the Mei-Lin spelling best, though, just because that's what I'm used to thinking when I hear MAY-lin, but the other spellings are nice. I like Malin, too, but I've always thought that was MAL (like the beginning of Mallory) in.Lise

I've never thought much about this name to be honest. Except for when I was researching my family tree. I came across several male Maylin's/Mailin's, which I thought was an unusual name for a male. From other searches, the name Maylin/Mailin seems to be quite prevalent in males in the late 1800's - early 1900's.
Mentions of Maylin/Mailin in my family tree:
Mailin (born 1864)
Clarence Maylin (born 1901)
Maylin Bertram (born 1912)
Maylin George (born 1904)
Maylin James (born 1865)
Maylin John (1837)
Stanley Edwin Maylin (born 1900)

It sounds like mailin' to me -- like, "I'm mailin' that letter!" NMS.
