There is also another variant of the name, Iselin. It is used in Norway as I know.

In Gaelic it means 'a dream'.

This gorgeous Irish classic is not pronounced ICE-lynn or ASH-lyn. The correct pronunciation is ASH-ling; a more modern variant is ash-LEEN.

My name's Aislinn and everyone I know calls me a different name, including Ice-lyn, Aslan (like the lion from Narnia!), my mum insists on calling me ash-leen so does my grandma. But I also have loads of nicknames that my friends call me, like Ashy, Ash and Baislin(?) lol. But I like my name! Its meaning is really nice as well, dream or vision.

Aislinn is the main character of Melissa Marr's "Wicked Lovely". Called "Ash" by her friends.

Aislinn is a beautiful old Irish name everyone seems to think it comes from the name aisling but this is not true. Aisling is a newer version of name Aislinn it is pronounced as ash-lynn not ashling or ashleen.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but "Aislinn" doesn't mean anything in Irish, old or modern. "Aislinn" IS a just a corruption of the word, and later, name, Aisling which means "vision" or "fantasy", not just an ordinary dream. And the pronunciations ASH-ling and ASH-leen, as opposed to just ASH-lin, arose because of differences in the pronunciation of Irish across the four provinces. Neither one is more correct than the other. I have done some research, and the oldest form of the the word "aisling" I can find is "aislinge" (middle Irish). "Aislinn" is definitely modern invention/mutation, not an older spelling of aisling. I would seriously question your proficiency in the Irish language.

Calm down Udine. No one has to follow any original spelling or pronunciation of any name, "correct" by your standards or not. If this was always the case then no new names would come about. We'd all have names like we were characters in Beowulf (Ogden, Gwalan, and such), at least those of us with Anglo-Saxon or Celtic heritage. I prefer the pronunciation of Aze-LYnn and the spelling Aislinn, but that's just me. That's just me stating my opinion NOT acting like an over-educated pretentious jerk, pushing my gathered knowledge to put others down over something as simple as a name.

I have a friend named this, and she pronounces it AYS-lin.

I read it in a book and fell in love with it. It's absolutely my favorite version of this name. I will definitely be giving this name to my girl.

I know two girls with this name - one pronounces it 'Ays-lin' and the 'Ai-lin'. I'm assuming the latter is a French pronunciation.

I love this name. My daughter is named Aislinn Rae. I love how great they sound together, and they meanings to them both. So positive and happy!

I like this; I like it a lot. I think it's better than the spelling Aislin.

I have a half-step-second-once-removed (something like that) cousin with this name, and she pronounces it how it looks: Ace-lin. I prefer the spelling Aislin, but I like the way my cousin Aislinn pronounces it. She's about 30, I think. Ash-lin makes me think of Ashley/Ashleigh, a name I really don't like, and I can't stand the name Ashlyn. Aislinn looks much nicer. I think that Aislinn, pronounced either way, is a very beautiful name with a lovely meaning.
