Lynette is such a pretty name. Not overly used which is nice.

Fictional character in Malorie Blackman's Noughts and Crosses. She is a nought, and after a terrible attack (won't go into details in case anyone is reading it!) goes slightly insane, and dies. She is a loving sister and a great person whom her family loves, and her name Lynette is lovely.

The Lady Lynette was the damsel who verbally abused Sir Gaheris as he attempted to fulfill the quest that she had laid before King Arthur's court.

I'm not completely sure if the name is of English origin because all other websites list LYNETTE as a Celtic name.

The name is probably a variant of "Linet" used by Sir Thomas Malory in his Le Morte D'Arthur. Linet was a young woman who rode to King Arthur's court to seek help from the Knights of the Round Table for her older sister, Dame Lionesse. King Arthur's youngest nephew, Gareth (then known as Beaumains) undertook the quest. Linet later married Gareth's older brother Gaheris while Gareth married Lionesse.

I think Lynette is a nice change from Lynn(e). It has more personality than Lynn(e) so I think it could be used as a first name or middle name.

I have also seen a variant, Lynetta.

I only know about this name because of the character Lynette from Desperate Housewives. She's strong-minded and independent, but a bit controlling and that's the personality I've come to associate this name with.

Lynette Bishop from the Japanese anime "Strike Witches" bears this name. Her nickname is "Lynne," and she was based off of one of Billy Bishop's (famous British-Canadian WWII pilot) children.

I like it. Not trendy, but pretty and simple. I also love the poetry of Tennyson, and he used this name in a famous long poem of his.

Dear... People,
I am sorry but I really don't like this name too much.
I really don't like Lyn or Lynn alone, but with -ette added I really just don't like it... Once again, I apologize. I AM GIVING MY OPINION, so don't badmouth me...

Really pretty, but really uncommon. Sad.

Lynette is the middle name of Princess Charlene of Monaco. It's also her mother's name.
