Comments for ASHLYN:

Could also be a mutation of the Gaelic name "Aisling", which means "dream" or "vision".

Ashelin (pronounced the same way) is the name of a character in the "Jak & Daxter" video game series. While I have mixed feelings about her character, I've always liked this name. I think it sounds more mature than Ashley, and it fits with Ashelin's "vixen who doesn't take any crap" persona.

This is a very pretty name and a great alternative to using Ashley.

This is my middle name and I've always really liked it. Actually my mom made up a variation of it - Ashlin. And personally I think it's much better because it's more unique.

Gaelic, means Dream.

No, Ashlyn is just a combination of Ashley and Lyn. The Irish name Aisling, which sounds similar, is completely unrelated.

I really like this name compared to my overused name Ashley. It sounds feminine enough and flows well. I may just change my name to this.

I'm not really a fan of this name. I've met a lot of "Ashlyn"s. But this is my favourite spelling. It's simpler then its assorted variants. I prefer this as a middle name.

I named my daughter (now 6) Noah Ashlyn. From the first time I heard this name I thought it sounded so sweet and beautiful. Very simple yet very classy.

I love this name. It's very pretty! I agree, it's a good alternative to Ashley, which is also pretty but used a lot.

The name is too close to the overused Ashley. It doesn't sound much more mature, even though it actually does a bit, I'll admit to that.

This name is not pretty, and people using it don't realize that Ashley is played-out and will remain so for quite some time.

This name screams 'My Mother never attended university.' It's tacky and boring fluff.

This is one of the most annoying names I've ever heard. Makes me think of stuck-up rich blonde people, no offense to anyone with this name, I'm just giving my "personal impression" (I'm blonde, just for the record). Good for you if you like it, but I can't stand it. Sounds too much like Ashley but it isn't, and I love the name Ashley, despite its popularity. If they liked Ashley so much, they should've named their kid Ashley, just saying. But hey, if you like this name, so be it.

This is my name, and what I like most about it is that it's not really "out there," but it's not as common as names like Ashley. The downside to this is that a lot of people tend to misread or mishear it, so I get called Ashley a lot and as a result have come to strongly dislike that name. When I was younger I used to get upset when I could never find anything in stores with my name on it and my brothers could, but it doesn't bother me anymore.

And in case anyone is wondering, both of my parents graduated from universities and I'm not blond, although I used to be when I was very young. :)

I like the name Ashlyn more than it's variant forms. I think it doesn't sound as childish as the others.
-- Milena Scialfa  10/18/2009
I think Ashlyn is pretty and trendy while not too common.
-- starz26  3/7/2010
I prefer Ashlyn over Ashley, because it doesn't end with that common 'ee' sound.
-- Anonymous User  12/2/2010
-lyn is an equally common ending, especially nowadays.

I love the name, don't get me wrong. However, I had to take a second look at it because I thought it was read "Ashtyn". I see now that it is Ashlyn but I think with the extra 'n' it would make it look complete and would be easier to read. Spelled like Ashlynn. I don't know why people think the extra 'n' is such a hassle. They pronounce it wrong anyways. So why not put the extra 'n', it make u look stupid for not reading it correctly. Besides Ashlynn or Ashlyn are both beautiful and unique unlike Ashley.
