My Name


My name is Crystalyn, but you already know that. What you MIGHT not know is that I really like my name. I’ve never met another Crystalyn. I know they are out there, and I’m sure they are amazing people, but I hope I never meet one. I once had a dream that I ALMOST met another Crystalyn and I freaked out a little. (In the dream I was at a press conference and there were two notebooks on the table with the name Crystalyn on them, but the other girl hadn’t shown up yet.)

One thing I find particularly amusing about my name, is the many many MANY ways people have misspelled it. Some people get irritated when people can’t spell their name right, I love it. I have a small collection of misspellings, which seems to have been added to quite a bit lately. That just comes with the territory of moving and starting a new job.

So here are a few choice ways to NOT spell my name. I won’t complain if you use any of these, I will probably just chuckle and say “Oh, I love that extra Y in there.”

  • Crystal Lyn
  • Crysta Lyn
  • Crystal Yn
  • Chrystalin
  • Cristal
  • Krystal
  • Kristaline
  • Kristalyn
  • Crystalline
  • Chrystal
  • Crystilal <- My favorite
  • Crystalyn Bryant
