Other Origin(s):French
Meaning:Idol; Nymph
Lynette is a girl’s name of Welsh origin. This name translates to “nymph” or “idol.” The addition of “ette” to its end also hints that it is a French diminutive of the name Lynn. Lynnette has a beautifully airy, feminine quality about it, not unlike its nymph origin. Nymphs are known as nature deities in Greek mythology, typically tied to a certain space or landform and depicted as beautiful, ethereal maidens. With this in mind, Lynette is a perfect way to add some magic to baby’s life, inspiring their connection with the beauty of nature.
