I want to know how to spell my first name (Caitlin) in Gaelic. I think I figured out my last name: Giolla Laoire for Colleary. Correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks for the help everyone!!

As far as I know, Caitlin is pretty much correct. Wait for confirmation though :-)

'Caitlin' is an Irish name of Origin... you can't exactly translate something back into it's own languge! (jk) :D

It's Irish and if I'm not mistaken it means girl or little girl, don't have my dictionary handy.
Slán go fóill,

As far as I know the Irish spelling has an accent.

Caitlín: Pronounced 'Cat-leen'

'Caitlin' would be pronounced 'Cat-lin"

Caitlin as Katelyn
Caitlín as Kathleen


but there is no end to the mutation of Irish names in the hands of the Yanks :lol: They all still think that Megan is Irish :roll: (ok 99%)
