CAILE íN > CAILíN

This name derives from the Irish Gaelic “Cailín”, meaning “maid, girl, young, unmarried woman, a generic term for Irish women or girls”, a diminutive form of the Irish “caile”, meaning “woman, wench”. It is not commonly used in Ireland itself, but has been used in America since the early 20th century. Colleen Atwood (born 1948) has been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Costume Design ten times, winning three times.
