What do you think?

LetThemEatCake Sun 28-Jun-09 20:41:11

think you've been drinking grin

sounds like a supermarket or cheap clothing chain


runnyhabbit Sun 28-Jun-09 20:41:25

Very similar sounding to Caitlin. (which I prefer, sorry)

aGalChangedHerName Sun 28-Jun-09 20:45:08

Bloody awful!! A wind up yes?

SoupDragon Sun 28-Jun-09 20:47:09

What do I think? That everyone will think you're an idiot who can't spell Caitlin.

rubyslippers Sun 28-Jun-09 20:47:49

what is wrong with Caitlin?

trixymalixy Sun 28-Jun-09 20:48:31

Do you need a passport to go there?

AnarchyAunt Sun 28-Jun-09 20:49:57

There was a Kaitland at DD's old nursery and it made my teeth itch every time I saw it written down.

It just looks daft.

nickytwotimes Sun 28-Jun-09 20:50:51

Well, Caitlin is nice.
WHere the hell did you dig up Kaitland from though?

crumpet Sun 28-Jun-09 20:54:57

Agree - Kaitland will make peopple think you are a numpty who got Caitlin wrong

DiamondHead Sun 28-Jun-09 20:57:17

Kaitland, just off the A36, where everyone you meet's called kate

mummywhodrinks Sun 28-Jun-09 20:58:13

I saw it in the nct magazine. Says on a baby name website it is a greek name meaning 'pure'.

I agree Caitlin is also nice but it is meant to be pronouced Catlin according to dh and I want a Kate sound at the beginning.

Fimbo Sun 28-Jun-09 21:01:22

Is it not the Irish for Kathleen in which case the prounciation could be more the way your dh thinks it is.

Bonneville Sun 28-Jun-09 21:16:44

Sounds, looks and is completely stupid. Sorry.

smurfgirl Sun 28-Jun-09 21:29:00

Do Katelin/Katelyn if you want Kate at the beginning.

pooka Sun 28-Jun-09 21:30:00

A friend's dd is Caitlin. Most definitely pronounced by her and all and sundry as Kate-lin rather than Cat-lin.

TheCrackFox Sun 28-Jun-09 21:30:54

No, no, no.

edam Sun 28-Jun-09 21:35:53

Caitlin is a Welsh name as well as Irish and the Welsh Caitlins I have known have all pronounced it 'Kate-lin'.

Please don't try Kaitland, it will scar the poor mite for life. Imagine everyone she ever meets thinking she's the offspring of too real numpties...

(Baby name websites make stuff up btw - they've gone for 'pure' because that's the meaning of Catherine and Caitlin is the Welsh/Irish form of Catherine. This does NOT mean 'Kaitland' is a real name.)

edam Sun 28-Jun-09 21:36:59

eek, speaking of Numpties that should of course be 'two' not 'too'. blush I was typing while on the phone to my mother though...

Rachmumoftwo Sun 28-Jun-09 21:38:08

I have a Caitlin (pronounced Kate-lyn). It has become quite popular but is still a lovely name :-)

EyeballsandherSunburntNorks Sun 28-Jun-09 21:38:47

Sounds like one of those big shops, TK Maxx, Matalan, Kaitland.... Reminds me of Snodland actually.

DaisymooSteiner Sun 28-Jun-09 21:43:52

Yes, you have been drinking, haven't you?

MrsMcCluskey Sun 28-Jun-09 21:49:00

Eyeballs - I was going to ask is it next door to 'Mataland'?

FigmentOfYourImagination Sun 28-Jun-09 21:49:29

Sounds like a town in Louisiana.
