Adelynn is an invented girl’s name of American origin. While the name only hit the charts in 2009, it is believed to be borne of two classic and feminine titles. The first, Adaline, is a derivative of the German Adele, meaning “noble.” The second stem is Madelynn, or Madeleine, referring to Mary Magdalene, the strong female biblical character. Regardless of which root takes your fancy, this name is perfect for a virtuous little one with a modern view of the world. Adelynn could also be an ideal name to honor a loved one with one of the more traditional titles while giving baby her own unique take.
