Allyn is a gender-neutral name, meaning “precious.” It’s a variant of the Old German name Alan, which derives from Adal or Adalhard, and provides a less common alternative to that classic name. Allyn is a very prominent surname in the US, but reached peak popularity as a first name between 1940 and 1949, and is rare today. Why not bring it back for your precious bundle?
