Meaning:noble kind
A variation of Adalyn, which registers higher on the baby-name charts, Adelynn is an invented American name and therefore has no real history or background. But it was likely inspired by Adelaide (“noble sort”) or possibly Madelynn. It has been listed on baby-name charts only since 2009, but it’s hanging on along with the name’s other options like Adelyn, Adela, Adelina and Adalina.
