TNG and ‘the Caitlins’
I am the father of one of the many ‘Caitlins’ who appeared on planet Earth in the late 80’s early 90’s.
My wife chose the name because it was unusual sounded cool.
She came across the name the same way hundreds of thousands of other parents did in the same time period. From the credits of Star Trek, the Next Generation. Before that, the name was very rare in the US, I had never heard it.
The oldest Caitlins are in their early twenties now, most are still teenagers.
Interesting because my wife’s name is Wendy, born during the popularity of the original Peter Pan movie. Wendy is a name that was made up by the author of Peter Pan.
Peter Pan comes and goes in various forms of plays and stories since he first appeared as a character in 1910.
