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.Mom to Cuyler Reese Holcomb and anxiously awaiting Avery Daniel Alexander in August 2013!

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.Stephanie Nicole
