Lynne is a feminine name of Celtic origin, meaning “lake” or “pool,” derived from the Old Welsh llyn, which translates to “lake.” Although Lynne was all the rage throughout the 20th century, it has taken a recent decline, with -lynn popularising instead as a suffix for a range of feminine names, including Aislynn, Madelynn, and Emmalynn. Lynne is also considered an alternative spelling of the Spanish Linda which means “pretty.” Whether you choose Lynne or one of its charming variations, the beautiful qualities of these precious monikers will be sure to suit your little one.
