Meaning:Dream; Vision
An ever-popular name in Ireland, Aisling is a girl’s title that’s beginning to make waves overseas. Variations like the more phonetic Ashling, as well as Aislinn, are in circulation too, but the original spelling still has a certain hold. Meaning “dream” or “vision,” Aisling dates back centuries to a time when the fanciful figure inspired the marginalized to overcome oppression. Oh My God, What a Complete Aisling is also a series of books detailing the trials and triumphs of a 20-something navigating adult life. While the Aisling of tales past has no trouble saving the day, maybe the well-loved character of today makes for a more relatable inspiration!
