  • I thought 'boy' when I saw it, personally.

  • Is it pronounced Cal-en? It sounds more masculine to me. Callen made our top 3 for this baby (a boy).

  • Looks like a boy name. Maybe if you spelled it Khalyn it could be for a girl.

  • When I first look at it, I think it's pronounced "Kay-Leen" so for a girl. :)

  • I think depending on the spelling it could work for either sex. Khalen (or Kaylen or Kalen) could work for a boy, while Cailen or Caylen or Kaylen could work for a girl.
