Meaning:Fierce courage, raging valour; Unlucky
Devlyn is a masculine name of Irish and Gaelic origin and an elegant spin on its more common variant, Devlin. This mighty moniker takes its roots from the Gaelic surname Ó Dobhailéin, which comes from dobhail, meaning “unlucky.” While Devlyn might seem a little overlooked by the luck of the Irish, legend will tell you all about the bravery this name means for baby. Devlyn’s most notable bearer Anne Devlin was known for her lionhearted loyalty to Irish rebel Robert Emmet. Keeping his leadership in loving devotion until the bitter end, this faithful servant’s fearlessness is what gives her family name its other meanings of “fierce courage” and “raging valor.” With a name as noble as Devlyn, baby can face the world beyond with bold, unbreakable confidence.
