This is my name, and I can't tell you how annoying it is to always have to spell it out for people. It seems like I was born in the year of the Kaitlyns. People always ask if it's with a C or a K, and then I always have to add that there's an i not a y too. That said, I love it because it looks so much more symmetrical than Kaitlyn to me.

One of the few names I prefer with a C, not a K.
