Raelyn is of American creation with Hebrew, Scottish, and Welsh roots, acting as a combination of Rae and Lyn. The feminine name became popular at the turn of the 21st century, particularly among North American homes, and reached its peak in 2017. The first half, Rae, comes from the Hebrew name Rachel, meaning "ewe" or "female sheep." Representing anything from innocence to gentleness, the sheep has the same feel as a fresh spring morning with baby Raelyn in your arms. The second half, Lyn, is commonly combined with other name prefixes, with variants including Madelyn, Caitlyn, and Brooklyn, to name just a few. Translating to "lake" or "waterfall," this can always remind your little one to go with the flow in any situation. Whether they're exploring the world's pastures or floating on the water surface, Raelyn can make for a great fit.
