Girls' names ending in “–lynn” are überpopular (think Adelynn and Gracelynn), so it’s refreshing to hear of a “–lynn” that’s lesser known. Pronounced RAY-lyn, the name has acquired enough of a cheering squad to earn it a rank on the baby-name charts. This American-invented name came into prominence in 2009, possibly influenced by the popularity of Rachel during that time, and stayed put. Raelynn has loads of Southern charm and comes across as honest and helpful. Need something? It’s Raelynn to the rescue!
