Tristyn is a sweet, two-syllable “T” name of Celtic origin, meaning “sad” or “sorrowful.” A slight spin on the boy’s name Tristan, which flows from the French word triste, meaning “sad,” Tristyn, like Tristan, tells the tale in its many letters of a love that wasn’t made to last. But even though the name Tristan has direct connections to the ill-fated Celtic fable of Tristan and Isolde, the name Tristyn has closer ties to competitive sports. From American golfer Tristyn Nowlin to award-winning BMX racer Tristyn Kronk, Tristyn is a leading light in a league of its own.
