Etymology & Historical Origin - Addilyn

Addilyn is one of five spellings currently in circulation in the United States of Adalyn, a name which gained attention starting around 2007. This female name could either be considered a modern-day spin on Adeline or a truncated form of Madeline (Madelyn). In the case of Adeline, which is a diminutive of Adele, the name comes from the Germanic element “adal” meaning “noble”. Alternately, Madelyn comes from the French Madeleine which originated as a name honoring Mary Magdalene from the Bible (meaning “of Magdala”). Given the current popularity of Madelyn/Madeline in the United States, it seems most likely the latter influence is closer to reality (also because Adeline is pronounced AD-ə-line rather than AD-ə-lyn). Addilyn is also akin to Addison/Addisyn, another American baby name going gangbusters right now.

Popularity of the Name Addilyn

Adalyn, Adalynn, Adelyn, Adelynn or Addilyn. If you like this name, these are your spelling choices right now (at least those in circulation on the Top 1000 list). Of course you could always invent your own spelling like Adylin or Adillynn. When it comes to these cutesy spelling reinventions, American parents just can’t be stopped. Many people find these types of made-up names and creative respellings a little too kitschy for their taste, but in many circles they are quite fashionable. The only thing to be wary of is that you’re obligating your child to go through life confirming and reconfirming the spelling of her name. This may not seem like a big deal now, but we hear from many folks it can be a serious nuisance worth considering.
