Erynn is a girl’s name of Irish origin. It’s a variant spelling of Erin, the anglicized form of Éirinn, which is one of the Irish words for Ireland. In grammatical terms, Éirinn is the dative case of the word while Éire is the nominative case and Éireann is the genitive. Although Éire is the most correct term to use when referring to Ireland on its own, Erin has become a poetic name for the country. The name ultimately derives from the Old Irish word Ériu, which referred both to Ireland and to a goddess of the land. If you’d like to pay tribute to your Irish roots while adding a modern twist to baby’s name, Erynn could be the perfect choice.
