Etymology & Historical Origin - Madelynn

Madelynn, like Madelyn and Madeline, is a respelling of the traditional French name Madeleine. It’s the French name for Mary Magdalene, one of Jesus’ favored disciples from the New Testament. Given the many “Marys” in the Bible, Mary Magdalene was a prominent figure and so distinguished specifically as “Mary of Magdala” (Magdala being a small village on the Sea of Galilee). In Luke 8:2 she was one of the women who had been “healed of evil spirits and infirmities.” In Hebrew or ancient Egyptian, the name is said to mean “wished-for child.” The name has been in use in Europe since the 17th century and has maintained its popularity since that time. In the United Sates, many spelling variants for Madeline began to emerge in the 20th century. Madelynn is one such example of this.
