Also an independent name and spelt Ethelyn. In fact, Ethelyn was the spelling of the name when it featured irregularly in the American top 1,000 for girls from the end of the 19th century to the 1930s. [noted -ed]

Far too much like ethylene, the chemical compound.

Hmm, I thought it sounded like a chemical! And it actually does. The name is just plain weird, and Ethel is horrible as well.

I actually love this name! It's sort of like a unique twist to the similar name Evelyn. It's also uncommon, which is always a plus.

I think the chemical namesake is actually kinda cool. It'd be great for a character.

Well, at least we know the adding-lyn-to-other-names trend isn't a recent one...
