Like Kamryn, this is an alternative spelling to Cameron, a Scottish surname that came from a Highland clan. American parents rejiggered the traditional spelling, possibly because it was far too common. Rather than pick a different name, they played around with vowels. Camryn is smooth like caramel with a sweet sound. This version is the domain of girls—there’s something about the “–ryn” that makes it feel more appropriate for daughters than for sons.
