Meaning:Valley, dale; Descendant of Ó Dálach; Assembly, gathering
You know how the song goes ... "Ain't no valley low, ain't no river wide enough, baby!" If the lyrics of Marvin Gaye's hit song "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" give you all the feels, then you might like the name Daelyn, meaning "valley" or "dale." This British gender-neutral name also has roots in Irish, stemming from the surname Ó Dálach. In Gaelic, dálach is derived from dáil, meaning "assembly or gathering." In Ireland, the Dáil is the official meeting place and office of the Irish government. From popular songs to politics to pretty valleys in the English countryside, Daelyn is certainly a versatile name rich in meaning!
