Comments and insights on the name Carolyn:

I am definatly thinking of using this name if a girl, and if she has a sister it will be either Gwen or Zana. Carolyn is a name used twice already in our family tree, and I love how it sounds. I love Vintage names.

Vintage or obsolete? Whatever name a parent chooses for a child, they are the ones who have to live with it, not the parent.

Personal experiences with the name Carolyn:

I am a Carolyn and I love it, Its a classy name. People who call me Caroline get the "what does L-I-N-E sound like" "Line" "ok what does L-Y-N Sound like" "lynn" exactly... Car o LYN!!

I have a friend Carolyn and people always end up calling her Caroline, but she doesn't mind so much.

My daughter is named Carolyn. Originally, I planned to name her Caroline, but my Mom thought people would pronounce Carolyn correctly more often. As it happens, about as soon as she was born, I started calling her Linnie. She was Linnie until she was 11, then she decided she wanted to be Cara. She's still Cara.

My name is Carolyn. I rarely use it. Every time I'm introduced to a new person, they call me Caroline! I now go by Carrie always. I got fed up of pronouncing it slowly for people.

My name is Carolyn. I absolutely hate it. I have met very few other Carolyn's in my life, most of which are older women who comment that they've never met anyone so young (20s) with our name. I feel like my name is very old and out of date, and a lot of people call me Caroline by accident which is even worse. I wish I'd been named something a bit more modern.

There is a Carrolyn in my family. She goes by Carnie, i don't know the reason. She is my absolute hero, she is the most loving, accepting person iknow and has the best sense of humor. Everytime she meets one of my friends they leave treating her like family.

I like my name okay I guess, but it is difficult for children to say. My sister called me "Gowen" when she was little. I know a Carolyn who goes by Taryn to this day because that's what her siblings called her. And I've heard of two other Carolyns who got stuck with "Calloran." So you might want to think twice about naming a firstborn Carolyn.

My name is Carolyn & there is much confusion on the spelling & pronunciation. I have to spell it to people when doing business. They think the pronunciation is Caroline. I don't see what is so difficult about it but that's ok.

My name is Carolyn and I love it. My parents named me after Carolyn Jones who played Morticia in the Addams Family. I really love it and its not a common name so I don't run across lots of Carolyn's. Which is good because now days there are many Madison's Emma's Emily's and Abby's. So its quite nice to have a name that is unique.

My name is Carolyn. I love my name. I've probably met three other Carolyns in my entire life. It's nice to have a name that's unique but also classic. It does sound a little sophisticated for a child, but there are plenty of nicknames (Cara, Carol, Carrie, Lynne). Everyone called me Cara until I was in my teens. Yes, people mistake it for Caroline all the time, even Karen if I mumble. But I don't mind.

I am a Carolyn and I must say it is pretty awesome. The great part about a name like Carolyn is all the nick names! Some people call me Caroline, but I just let it slid. Some of my friends call my Care Bear, or Carrie. Another great part is that I haven't meet very many other Carolyns. Thats ok, because a vintage and unique name is fun!
