Other Origin(s):Latin
Meaning:From Mount Kynthos; Moon goddess
Cyn is a feminine name of Greek and Latin origins, short for Cynthia, meaning “from Mount Kynthos.” Cynthia’s roots stretch deep into classical antiquity as an epithet for the goddess Artemis, born on Mount Kynthos. Selene, the Greek personification of the moon, and Diana, Artemis' Roman counterpart, were also sometimes referred to as Cynthia. Cyn drops the “thia” to make a crisp and clear title while maintaining its uplifting chime. Classic yet contemporary, Cyn is an ethereal choice for your little moon child.
