Characteristics of Adalyn
Etymology & Historical Origin - Adalyn
Adalyn is a new American coinage. As an invented name, Adalyn is thought to have been inspired by one of two more traditional names. The first, Adelaide, comes from the Germanic elements “adal” meaning ‘noble’ and “heid” meaning ‘kind, sort’. The second influence on Adalyn’s creation was taking the popular name Madelyn and dropping the “m”. Madelyn is a respelling of the French name Madeleine and refers to Magdalene (or Mary Magdalene from the New Testament). In Luke 8:2 she was one of the women who had been “healed of evil spirits and infirmities.” In either case, Adalyn is its own made-up name and as such has no defined meaning. American naming practices embrace new name creations, respellings, elaborate alterations and the random combination of different syllables. Adalyn is an example of the latter. Ada + Lynn = new name.
