    I know a Karlyn so that spelling seems more feminine and yes probably more trendy. She is in her late 20's. I never realized it was a last name I don't even know who George Carlin is. I've always liked it though and wouldn't consider it masculine. Again, I know a female Karlyn though. My favorite lyn names are Madelyn and Adelyn, but I really like Madelyn. It was on my list til a friend used Adelyn. Now, I would be more inclined to use the Madeleine spelling but I like the simplicity and clarity (of pronunciation) of Madelyn.

    I like Carlin, but do not care for Carlyn. That would be taking a strong unisex name, which is partially in honor of a free spirit, and femme-ing it up because a girl's name must be cutesy and soft.

    I don't think you'd get too many raised eyebrows, even from the Madicyn set.

    I like Carlin. For the association, and just in general. (Though, I seem to have a thing for most Hard-C names!)

    I'd personally be more inclined to use it on a boy. That's just me. I'm not overly fond of the unisex names. But, it's not unheard of!

    For some reason I would be more partial to Carlyn for a girl. Which, creates quite a paradox in my head. Because I'm also not fond of just turning a "boy" name into a "girl" name by adding/changing a few letters. And, it's only in spelling. Introduction/sound wise, it's the Exact same name.

    I think it's a great name for boy or girl. Spelling depends on if you're more into unisex names or creative spellings.
