Daughter of Lynn

Daughter of [name_u]Lynn[/name_u]
What are some names that would make good [name_u]Lynn[/name_u] diminuitives, even loosely?

  • Not [name_f]Lynnette[/name_f] or [name_f]Linnea[/name_f].
  • [name_u]Lynn[/name_u] and [name_f]Liv[/name_f] are cute, but we have a word LN, so we unfortunately can’t use [name_f]Liv[/name_f] (or any other word names).
  • The shorter, the better.
  • Edited to Add: would like it to be phonetically similar(ish) to Lynn. Ambivalent about names’ meanings.

All I can think of is [name_u]Evelyn[/name_u]. In general, not a fan of the -lyn series (emmalyn, adalyn, carolyn, etc).

I’m stumped.
Thoughts?

I like [name_u]Evelyn[/name_u]! Some other ideas are:
[name_f]Lina[/name_f]/Lynna
[name_f]Ellen[/name_f]/Elyn
[name_f]Elynor[/name_f]/Elinor
[name_u]Lynden[/name_u]/Linden nature name
[name_f]Lyndy[/name_f]/Lindy
Maybe a double barrel like [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_u]Lynn[/name_u], [name_f]Ava[/name_f] [name_u]Lynn[/name_u], [name_u]Avery[/name_u] [name_u]Lynn[/name_u], [name_f]Elsie[/name_f] [name_u]Lynn[/name_u]?

Hmmm… perhaps:
[name_f]Lynda[/name_f]
[name_f]Lina[/name_f]
[name_f]Alina[/name_f]
[name_f]Lianna[/name_f]/Liana
[name_u]Linden[/name_u]/Lynden

Lynn means “[name_u]Lake[/name_u]”, so you could possibly use [name_u]Lake[/name_u]/Lakely/Lakelyn.

Evelyn is lovely, and I really like [name_f]Marilyn[/name_f]. [name_f]Aislin[/name_f] has the sound, if not the y. [name_u]Dylan[/name_u], [name_f]Elyn[/name_f], [name_f]Jocelyn[/name_f], [name_f]Madelyn[/name_f], [name_f]Shalyn[/name_f]. [name_u]Lynn[/name_u] as a nickname for [name_u]Finley[/name_u], if you don’t mind unisex.

I like the suggestion of [name_u]Lake[/name_u]. :slight_smile: Lots of other water names out there to draw a connection in meaning as well, like simple but lovely [name_u]Rain[/name_u].

To honor [name_u]Lynn[/name_u] I also like [name_u]Lane[/name_u] for a girl, nn [name_u]Laney[/name_u].

Or maybe…

Lydia
[name_f]Libby[/name_f] nn [name_f]Lib[/name_f]
[name_f]Brynn[/name_f]
[name_u]Wynn[/name_u] or [name_f]Winnie[/name_f]

Lynn and [name_f]Libby[/name_f] is cute. [name_f]Libby[/name_f]’s not exactly my style… But it makes me think of [name_f]Sibyl[/name_f] / [name_f]Sybil[/name_f] … l
[name_u]Lynn[/name_u] and [name_f]Sibyl[/name_f] could sound good together.

Devlyn
Dilyn
[name_f]Ellyn[/name_f]
[name_f]Falyn[/name_f]
[name_f]Gwendolyn[/name_f] (nn [name_f]Gwen[/name_f])
[name_f]Jaclyn[/name_f]
[name_m]Talyn[/name_m]
[name_u]Brooklyn[/name_u]

Lynn means lake, others meaning lake:

Lake
[name_u]Laiken[/name_u]
Inari
[name_f]Locklyn[/name_f]

General water names:
[name_f]Beverly[/name_f]
[name_u]Brooke[/name_u]
[name_f]Delta[/name_f]
[name_f]Isla[/name_f]
[name_u]Sailor[/name_u]
[name_f]Talia[/name_f]
[name_u]Marlowe[/name_u]
[name_f]Rosemary[/name_f]
[name_f]Maya[/name_f]
[name_u]Adair[/name_u]
[name_f]Avonlea[/name_f]
[name_f]Cordelia[/name_f]

Linley/Lynley is my favourite! Or [name_u]Linden[/name_u]/Lynden!

How about [name_u]Lindsey[/name_u]? Some more names with ‘lin’ in them: [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f], [name_f]Alina[/name_f], [name_f]Caitlin[/name_f], [name_f]Joplin[/name_f], [name_f]Linda[/name_f]. And somemore water themed names: [name_u]Laken[/name_u], [name_f]Laguna[/name_f], [name_u]Bay[/name_u], [name_u]Fjord[/name_u], [name_f]Loire[/name_f], [name_f]Noelani[/name_f], [name_u]Rain[/name_u], [name_f]Ria[/name_f], [name_f]Rilla[/name_f], [name_u]River[/name_u].

Lyn could make a great middle name. What about something that maybe doesn’t have the [name_u]Lynn[/name_u] spelling but has the sound?
[name_f]Aislinn[/name_f]
[name_f]Jaylynn[/name_f]
[name_f]Jaqueline[/name_f]

I recently discovered that [name_u]Lynn[/name_u] could have the meaning of “frolic/play” relating to a very old meaning of “lake” – [name_u]Lark[/name_u] starts with L, has four letters and one syllable like [name_u]Lynn[/name_u], and relates to the “frolic/play” meaning. I’m actually considering using this as a namesake for [name_u]Lynn[/name_u]
