My great-great-grandmother's first name was spelled "Kaile" in
German-language birth records of her earliest children born in the 1830s in
Kempen, Prussia (Kepno, Poland). But in listings for the births of her later
children, she was identified as "Caroline."

I am not sure of the reason for the change >from Kaile to Caroline, but I am
sure she was the same person because of her maiden name and because there
were no new marriages recorded in that period for my

My wife and I were intrigued by the name Kaile when we first learned of it,
so when our daughter was born, we selected Kayla as her middle name.
