Stemming from Dutch and Scandanavian roots, the girl's name Elin is the equivalent of Helen. Helen is known in Greek mythology for being the beautiful daughter of Zeus and Leda, who was the equally as striking Queen of Sparta. If you would like to name baby after this goddess but with a twist, you can look towards the Dutch version that is Elin. With this name's meaning of “sunbeam” and its links to beauty, Elin is a charming choice to lovingly represent your little ray of light.
