Etymology & Historical Origin - Adalynn

Adalynn is essentially a new American invention. It followed Adalyn (with one “n”) onto the female naming charts for the first time in 2008. As newly coined 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” (i.e., the noble one). The second possible inspiration behind Adalynn’s creation was an abbreviated form of the popular name Madelynn (by dropping the “m”). Madelynn is an Americanized 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” and she is also remembered as one of the loyal Disciples of Christ. In either case, Adalynn is really just a made-up name, very modern and has no defined meaning. It’s one of those cutesy name creations American parents are so good at. American naming practices embrace name inventions, respellings, elaborate mutations and the random combination of different syllables. Adalynn is an example of the latter. Ada + Lynn = new name. No doubt Lynn is one of the most popular name suffixes around. Just consider the following examples: Brooklynn, Ashlynn, Adalynn, Katelynn, Madelynn, Raelynn, Jaelynn, Evelynn, Jazlynn, Kaylynn, Gracelynn, Braelynn, Jocelynn, Kailynn…the list goes on.

Popularity of the Name Adalynn

Adalyn(n) and Adelyn(n) are names which only recently joined the American panoply of baby girl names appearing suddenly between 2007 and 2009. Adalyn and Adelyn were first to enter America’s Top 1000 list in 2007 while Adalynn followed in 2008 and Adelynn in 2009. Whether parents prefer the “a” or the “e” for the second vowel or whether they opt for one or two “n”s, all of these names are pronounced the same way. Collectively, all of these names have done quite well in the 21st century. Similar to the name Addison, Adalyn and her sister-spellings are really quite trendy in some circles. Right now, Adalyn is the most favorite spelling, followed by Adelyn. The spelling of Adalynn is the third most common of the four options (Adelynn rounds out fourth place). Whatever your personal preference, Adalynn is a modern and sweet name choice. Youthful, trendy and ever so precious.
