This is my sister's middle name, my cousin's name and one of my mother's middle names. So on Elin's nameday we have a big party!

I think it could be a good variant of the typical 'Ellen', or even a nickname for Melinda. I don't care for Mel or Linda or anything, but Elin is cute.

I think this is a beautiful name. This is one of my sister's favorite names, though she spells it Eilan, as in the main character of the Fantasy novel The Forest House by Marion Zimmer Bradley. I think Eilan might be pronounced eye-lin, but whatever, it's what she likes!

This was my beloved grammy's name and it's pronounced like ay-lin, not ee-lin like Tiger's wife, what's- her-face. I have no idea where that pronunciation came from.
