Baby Names

girls names that end with -yn

my daughters name is brooklyn and we are having #2 and dont know what it is yet (its waaayyy early) but i still like to think about it.  what other girl names are pretty and end in -yn?

I like Londyn and Ardyn......

Re: girls names that end with -yn

  • I'm not really a fan of the "yn" ending.  I can't think of a single name where it's the original spelling.

    i dont care if its the original spelling, i like changing it anyways.  i changed Londyn and Ardyn

  • Ashlyn.

    Kaitlyn.

    Madelyn. 

    And I'm not usually a fan of the random /y/ but I taught a girl named Lauryn. It didn't seem too off the wall of a spelling and since she was so darn cute, the alternative spelling kind of grew on me.

    You do realize you're naming a perosn who will be stuck with that name for life, and not just creating a themed gallery?  Londyn looks ridiculous, and Ardyn looks un-pronounceable, and I even like Arden as a name.

    Everyone is answering your question.

    You asked: "what other girl names are pretty and end in -yn?"

    People are responding: None, names should not end in -yn. There are not many that are traditionally that way. If someone doesn't like the names, they aren't going to make them up just to suggest a name.

    I'm sorry, but I agree. I can't suggest any names because, I don't think there are any names that are pretty that end in -yn. That is my opinion.

    AGAIN- i asked for a NAME.  if you dont have one, dont freaking answer.  i dont care if you dont like any that end in -yn. thats your OPINION.  I asked for a name.

  • I like Madelyn.

    I think you have a problem with always wanting to have the last word.  You don't get to control how people respond to a post.  If you're this defensive to strangers on the internet, what are you going to be like to people who give those names side eye in real life?

    Marilyn was a good suggestion.  Taryn isn't too bad, and neither is Madelyn.  Caryn, Camryn, Caitlyn....those are all at least recognizable.

    Head on back to 6-12 :)

  • Carolyn, Marilyn, Jocelyn, Gwendolyn, Tamryn, Emmalyn - that's all I can think of.
  • I'm Carolyn...I love how you are all generalizing that -yn endings are all made up. Y does get overused in trashy ways, but there are some classic names that have Y's in them as a vowel. I'm amazed at how many idiots pronounce my name Caroline.

    Kathryn, Carolyn, Marilyn, and Gwendolyn, are all proper spellings. 

  • Kathryn, Jocelyn, Madelyn, Katelyn, Carolyn, Taryn, Marilyn.

    The trick is not taking a name that is spelled one way traditionally (Cameron for example) and just adding the "y" to be unique (Camryn).  That looks ugly and like you are trying too hard to make a box set out of your children.

    Please avoid themes too.  Brooklyn is NMS but works on its own.  Brooklyn and Londyn?  uhhhhhh... if you don't see the issue with that then there is nothing any of us can say to help you.

    We certainly didn't add the "y" to be unique, we did it to girl up a masculine spelling.  

  • Kathryn, Carolyn, Ashlyn

     

    Those are the only ones I can think of that aren't "trashy." There maybe others I'm not thinking of, but please be careful with this. Your child is the one who will be stuck with it.

  • I love that OP said "haterade".  Go Maury!

    I love Jocelyn, Marilyn, and Gwendolyn.  Theme names for siblings are kind of cheesy.  Brooklyn is cute, but pair it with Londyn and it's too much.

  • Londyn and Ardyn are horrible. Simply horrible. By your responses to the other posters I can tell you didn't really want any actual opinions so all I can do is hope you have a boy (and don't name him Braydyn).

    I find it hilarious that you said this on THIS board. It isn't like we went to her home, slapped her, and said "NO! And STOP THAT!". She asked, and she received.

    I was not asking for help to understand that there is a problem with this. I dont care if you dont like them together. I asked for name SUGGESTIONS!!! and FWIW, I LOVE the name Camryn with a y.  adorable.

  • Evelyn / Evie is another one.
  • Ok I actually have a suggestion.

    I have a student this year named Paxtyn. I hated even looking at this name to start (it looks like random letters from a dart board) but the girl is such a sweetie it has grown on me.

  • I like the Evelyn and Marilyn suggestions.

    Ardyn is a little weird to me.

    Londyn is cute, but that's my dog's name (sry).

    Good luck, I hope you find the perfect name.

     

  • i like mixing names up, i like catelyn and jocelyn and jaylin,kristyn, (man i could go on for ever)

     

    i have to cousins who are male aaryn tristyn

  • Let me just say that I am a "Kristyn" and I hate it - has caused me nothing but greif my entire life. My sister is "Kaitlyn" and she doesn't have issues. It's the mis-spelling on purpose that usually causes the child issues, not the selection of a common spelling that happens to end in "yn".
  • I love the name Brooklyn. We have friends that have children: Brooklyn, Lauren, and Cameron (boy).

    I like Evelyn, Jocelyn, Carolyn, and Lynn.

    Good Luck!

    I named one of my girls Lauryn.  I was going to spell it the original way but then changed it a month before she was born.  My name is spelled differently so I figured it wouldn't be a big deal.  I love it and so will she.

  • i think the -yn Is SUPER cute! and I agree that things dont have to be spelled the same everytime! My daughter is Kaydence.... and the common spelling is Caidence....which i personally dont like at all but obviously love the name..

     

    Ashlyn, Brandalyn ( i know a woman with this name), Jocelyn, and I think Marilyn is super cute and would be cute with Brooklyn!

  • Two things:

     1. I think people would be able to better discern the difference between "Carolyn" and "Caroline" if people that named their child "Caroline" didn't actually pronounce it "Carolyn". I have know 3 "Caroline"'s pronounced "Carolyn". But, you are right in that "Carolyn" should clearly be "Carolyn". It makes sense.

     2. TOut of curiousity, to the poster, what if you have a boy? Why do you want so many girl name suggestions at 4 weeks ? Are you going to follow the same style with a boy?

    Carolyn, Marilyn, Jocelyn, Gwendolyn, Tamryn, Emmalyn - that's all I can think of.

    Great suggestion! I think Brooklyn and Jocelyn sound perfect together.

  • My name is Kathryn and I LOVE the spelling.  I've always loved how my parents spelled my name, and Kathryn lends itself to so many nicknames.

    I like Londyn and Ardyn......

    The problem is London and Arden don't actually end in "yn" - if you really want a decent name that ends in yn, find one that legitimately ends in yn, not one that you intentially spell incorrectly to force it to.

    On a side note, your DD is gorgeous.

    I always thought Cathrine/Kathrine was the proper spelling.  Nothing against you or anything, I think Kathryn/Cathryn looks fine.

    I'm going going with what PP are saying- use a name that is already spelled -yn, don't change a perfectly good name from it's proper spelling to look cutsey.  London is NOT cute when it's spelled Londyn, it just looks trashy and like mom is a bit uneducated.

  • I really like the suggestions Jocelyn and Kathryn. Good luck!

  • Please don't change the spelling of London or Arden -- use names that already end in -yn.  Londyn and Ardyn just look silly.
  • I have a friend who named her dd Camdyn

    I always thought Cathrine/Kathrine was the proper spelling.  Nothing against you or anything, I think Kathryn/Cathryn looks fine.

    There are three proper spellings of the name that go back hundreds of years: Catherine, Katherine, and Kathryn.  You can find accounts of Kathryns among the earliest English settlers settlers in Virginia and Massachusetts Bay.     

    Kathryn is not an improper spelling, but with the current trend of adding "y"s where they don't belong, I can see how someone would assume that Kathryn was simply part of that trend.
