Other Origin(s):Greek, Irish
Meaning:Pure; Slender
Kailan is a modern American name steeped in Irish roots. This pretty girl's name harkens back to Caolán, an Irish name meaning "pure" and "slender." Kailan is part of the same family as Keelin, Kaylin, and Keelan, all inspired by the original name. Caitlin is another variant, and it also connects this elegant name to the Greek classic, Catherine. Kailan is a wonderful choice for baby if you want a name inspired by history and reimagined with a contemporary American twist!
