Etymology & Historical Origin - Sherlyn

Sherlyn is a modern American invention born from names like Sheryl and Sherilyn. The name Sherry started the trend back in the mid-1920s (probably in reference to the Spanish wine), but then Cherie followed shortly thereafter when the name was borrowed from the French “chérie” meaning "darling" (as in mon chérie). Scores of other variations followed Cherie onto the list of American female given names such as Cheryl, Cheri, Cher, Cherilyn, Sheryl and Sherilyn (and those are just a few). In fact, Cher the singer/actress was born Cheryl Sarkisian in 1946. All of these “Cheryl” type names were most popular during the 1960s and 70s in the United States. Sherlyn is a two-syllable variant of Sherilyn which only recently appeared on the female charts. Oddly enough, this 21st century version of the “Cherie” names is the only one left in circulation today.

Popularity of the Name Sherlyn

Sherlyn is one of those down-home country music sounding names. It’s approachable and friendly, but lacks refinement and sophistication. The name first appeared on the charts in America in 2003, climbed to levels of moderation in 2006 and then abruptly reversed her course on the charts. Influence of the name’s usage may have had something to do with Sherlyn Montserrat González Díaz, a Mexican actress and singer known simply as Sherlyn.
