    I prefer Catherine McGillis personally.
    Nothing wrong with Caitlin, but I feel like Catherine flows better

    Of your choices Catherine is my favorite. Another idea you might like is Kathleen (has Irish roots like Caitlin but is now much less common and not usually kre8tivly spelled).

    I think Caitlin McGillis works fine, both names are two syllables long so neither is really more of a mouthful than the other. If you're leaning towards a Catherine variation, I'd consider what, if any, nicknames you plan on using and your preferred spelling of those - I tend to prefer K spelling nicknames (Kitty, Katie, etc) to go with Katherine and C spelling nicknames (Cate, Cathy, etc) to go with Catherine as it keeps the constant initial, and you'd need to consider whether that would bother you.

    Catherine McGillis looks very elegant and polished. I think Catherine flows better than Caitlin. Catherine is timeless whereas Caitlin was trendy in the 80's-90's so I think it's "dated" to that period.
    All the best,
    Mischa.
