This dreamy name, which is used by both genders (but mostly girls now), is of Irish and Gaelic origin and is just slightly more popular than the alternate spelling, Ashlynn. The name, a variation of the massively popular Ashley, comes from the Celtic “aisling,” which means “dream.” Its first foray on the baby-name charts came in the mid-1980s and rose quickly in popularity.
