Etymology & Historical Origin - Adelyn

Adelyn is a new American coinage. As an invented name, Adelyn 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 Adelyn’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” and became a close associate of Christ. In either case, Adelyn is its own made-up name and as such has no defined meaning. American naming practices embrace new name creations, respellings, elaborate alterations and randomly combining different syllables. Adelyn is therefore a distinctly American name.

Popularity of the Name Adelyn

Adelyn is a brand new invention in America. It only first appeared on the U.S. female naming charts in 2007 and in a few short years has now ascended to levels of respectable moderation. Since there are so many variants of this name now (Adalyn, Adalynn, Adelyn, Adelynn) we would expect a fair amount of spelling confusion for your child later in life. Adelyn is more of a “cutesy” name, but there’s something that feels incomplete about it (um, did you forget the M?). It is also a little reminiscent of Addison, which is experiencing a bit of backlash now due to overuse and ϋber-trendiness. Adelyn is definitely a choice for a modern-minded parent who finds new inventions and “kreative” respellings refreshing rather than tiresome. For others, it’s just a little too precious.
