Etymology & Historical Origin - Adelynn

Adelynn is a modern American name invention and one of five spelling versions available on the Top 1000 list of female names. It all started with the coinage of Adalyn, a name which gained attention starting around 2007. Adelynn could either be considered a modern-day spin on Adeline or a truncated form of Madeline (Madelynn). In the case of Adeline, which is a diminutive of Adele, the name comes from the Germanic element “adal” meaning “noble”. Alternately, Madelynn comes from the French Madeleine, a name given to Mary Magdalena from the Bible (and so means “of Magdala”). Given the current popularity of Madelyn/Madeline in the United States, it seems clear that Adelynn found her inspiration from Madelynn rather than Adeline (also because Adeline is pronounced AD-ə-line rather than AD-ə-lynn).

Popularity of the Name Adelynn

Adelynn is one of the lesser preferred spellings of Adalyn. Still, the name only found a position on the Top 1000 list of American female baby names in 2009, so it’s had little time to show off its potential. We will say this: Adalyn and Addison are hyper-trendy baby girl names in the United States right now (and both have multiple respellings adding to the already competitive landscape). Adelynn is growing in usage year over year proving her appeal. However, the Madelyn/Adalyn and Madison/Addison names have gotten way too much attention since the turn of the 21st century, so people are likely to tire of them more quickly due to overexposure. Not to mention there are so many mutations of all of these gals that children with such names will be forced to go through life constantly repeating the “kreatyve” spelling of her name. Most people find this to be a nuisance, so it’s something to think about.
