Just when you thought there were no new names in the world, some creative folks came up with one. Adalyn is a sweet mix of the German “Adelaide” and the suffix “-lyn.” Since it’s a made-up name, it has no real history or mythological references. But its namesake, Adelaide, has roots: “Adal” means noble and “heid” means sort, so Adalynn’s meaning is the noble sort. It has been on naming charts only since 2007, so it's not a name you see often—although musician Chris Daughtry brought the name closer to the spotlight in 2010 when his daughter, Adalynn Rose, was born.
