A variation of Adalyn, which registers a few notches higher on the baby-name charts, Adelyn is an invented American name with no real history or background. But it was likely inspired by Adelaide (“noble sort”) or even Madelyn. It has been listed on naming charts only since 2007. It's close in spelling and pronunciation to Adalyn and Adelynn and also counts Adela, Adelina and Adelina as variants.
