The pronunciation is wrong! This should be changed. It is pronounced with a long a sound. It rhymes with Kaelyn.

i think the comment that it sounds like "jail...keep looking" is just wrong. It is a beautiful name and "Jail" is not accurate, it is more like "Jay-Lynn" in it's sound---- not too far off from Jalene.

Not sure where they came up with how to pronounce it, but it is wrong! The difference Is a seemingly small one but It makes a huge difference!

It isn't "JAIL-in", it is pronounced "JAY-lin". Unfortunately most people say it incorrectly, and put the emphasis on the 2nd syllable as in "jay-LYNN", however I have never heard it sound like "Jail".

Way before Jalen was a thought in anyone's mind, I had a classmate named Jaylynn.
