It sounds too feminine in my opinion with the -lyn ending. I love it on a girl though! New, pretty, and different!

Said HAY-lin (or HYE-lin in South Wales).

And I'm so tired of all these people commenting about how lyn/wyn endings don't sound masculine "but would be so pretty on a girl!".

I really like this name. Heilyn has a very pleasant sound and an interesting meaning, and it doesn't sound like it's going to get popular anytime soon. It's disyllabic, simple and mature enough for any guy, even if he wasn't Welsh. But I would say because of pronunciation difficulties, and the existence of people who think that names that end with -lyn MUST be feminine, that if you don't live in Wales, it would be best as a middle name.

Now, it really does annoy me when people say that long established male names like Heilyn and Naoise are feminine. You're being completely ignorant of other people's cultures. The world doesn't end with the borders of America, and having names like "Lashay" and "Nevaeh" really doesn't say a lot for your country.

I don't think people realize how offensive it is to belittle a culture by deciding whether their names belong on a girl or not. You don't get to decide that, and you don't get to change that.
