Putting a modern spin on a traditional name is the dream for parents seeking a unique name for baby. Ashlyn is a diminutive of the beautiful Irish name, Aisling, sometimes spelled Ashling. Drop a G, add a Y, and you've got yourself a winning choice for your baby boy or girl! This name means "dream" in Irish, which is fitting seeing as your little bundle is bound to be a dream come true. Though it is traditionally a girl's given name, this modern version works well for both genders. A staple among families in Ireland, Ashlyn or Aisling is certainly a popular choice in the States, too.
