Meaning:From the fairy palace
One and the same with legend and lore, Shaylyn is a girl’s name of Gaelic origin, signifying something or someone “from the fairy palace.” And while its many variants and diminutives remain in sheer mystery, there’s no doubt about the mystique and magical wonder held in its many letters. In timeless Irish folktale, fairy palaces or fairy forts, as they’re called, were deemed the sacred dwelling of the little beings we know as fairy creatures. Though these supernatural sprites were best avoided for fear of bad luck, tales also tell of their ability to bring forth bright futures. Naughty or nice, naming your little one Shaylyn is a wonderfully whimsical way to celebrate all parts of baby’s blossoming personality!
