Whether baby Maelyn arrives in May or any other day, they’ll be ready to rule! With English origins, Maelyn is believed to be a modern spin on May or Mae, a feminine name that simply means “May.” But, there is yet another chapter in Maelyn’s story. In Breton, a Celtic language, the name Mael or its feminine variant Maelie means “princess” or “chieftain,” two meanings that Maelyn could also have links to. With such a powerful name, little Maelyn can do anything they set their mind to.
