These are the names I'm seriously considering and I don't want any hate. Just positive opinions please. My first child's name is Logan.

Out of those choices, Jillian definitely.

I only like Kaelyn spelled Cailin. It looks more mature to me.




But, if you're stuck on that spelling, then Jillian, definitely.

My daughter's name is Kalyn.. Which everyone pronounces "Cailynn"; however, we pronounce it. K-alan.. if that makes sense.. the al like the al in alan.. but i have met people who spell it and pronounce it Cailynn spelled like my daughter...



i thought this was cute bc the cashier at Whataburger had same first name and initial that my daughter has... but she is one who pronounces Cailynn..2012-10-06142832.jpg

Workaholics will be irrelevant by the time her child is 5. :lol:



You don't want your girl to have a cute name, you want her to have a beautiful name. She'll be small and cute for a few years, but she will spend the majority of her life as an adult, so the name should be pretty AND mature. Which is why I suggested the name spelled correctly.
She'll have a better chance at getting a job with Cailin on her resume than Kaelyn.

I highly doubt that they will judge her by the way its spelled but probably more on her background, education, qualifications, etc. And mature? How is it not mature? Ik many women named kaylyn not spelled the cailin. Cailin is so close to caitlin. And honestly its blan. Now a days you want it to be catchy &to youll want your baby girl to love it forever. Kaelyn shows the a is long. And its catchy and cute. And its mature.. its the spelling of her name. But like is said, i like them all but jillian, it seems like the name off an old woman to me and people may quickly start calling her jill..

There is nothing wrong with the name Jill.

I used to work in a doctor's office, you don' even know how many resumes were thrown out before even being read because they had ridiculous names, then he boss would joke around about the name.




Do I think it's right to punish someone for a name their parents gave them? No.
But, it's a fact that it does happen, with statistics and proof.
But why even bother? This will go in one ear and out of the other.

Of course they will - I majored in HR, it is extremely common for names that have weird spellings to be just thrown out because they aren't clear on the pronunciation, they looks silly/ down market / uneducated. There are 500 other people with the same qualifications, why would they want someone whose name looks like they are the product of an uneducated teen mom. (No offense - but the large portions of teen moms I see have awful taste, no all, but I would say the majority).




You want your daughters name to be "catchy"? lmao - wtf? No - you're "child" is only a child for a very short time, they spend the majority of their life as an adult and to give them a name that's "cute" is unfair and selfish. Your child deserves a name that will grow with them and won't hinder them in a professional setting.



OP: Jillian is a beautiful choice - classy, uncommon (how many baby Jillians do you know?) and most importantly - it fit's a person at every stage of their life.



Kaelyn is a hot mess, sorry.

It's pointless. lol.



I've went through this in two threads with her.
