  • I see it more as a girls name. I have a friend who just named her daughter Caylin (pronounced Kay-Lynn). With the Lynn sound in the name it definitely seems girly to me.

  • I would pronounce it 'Kay-lin.' I like it better for a girl than for a boy. If I saw it written down I would think it was a girl's name.

  • It looks and sounds like a girl name to me. the "Cai" part makes me think of the name Caitlynn. And I would actually pronounce it with those sounds "kay-lin"

  • I agree with the others on the pronunciation.
    Caelan (spelled that way) was actually on our short list for boys names with our first (and, yes, it's a boys name, it's a variation of Nicholas...probably Gaelic).
