a variant of Caroline used since the 19th century.

He never called me "Carolyn" until long after Id stopped studying with him. It was always "Caroline", as in his Jardin aux Lilas. When at Juilliard he first learned my name, he snorted "How affected!" I was surprised. "Carolyn" affected? "Caroline" not? Id always thought it was the other way around.
