Rin was a little girl that stood by Inuyasha's evil brother Sesshomaru, although she is a kind and warm-hearted little girl in the manga/anime series 'Inuyasha'.

I don't think it's that common of a name though. Manga and anime are a poor reflection of reality.

Rin is the nickname of a character in the manga, "Fruits Basket." Rin's real name is Isuzu, which means "bell." She's nicknamed Rin because of the sound a bell makes (ring ring, get it?).

Rin also means "park".

I think its a nice a name. Though the meaning doesn't suit the people who have this name in many anime. Like Rin from Naruto, her name doens't really fit with the meaning 'Cold.' Another example is Rin from Inuyasha, she is cheerful and doesn't fit with 'Cold.'

I didn't know it could mean "cold". I was more thinking of "bell". The kanji for "wood" can also be pronounced Rin, but I don't know if it is used for names.

Since so many people are mentioning Rin from Inuyasha, it's important to note two things: first of all, the actual name is pronounced "reen", while in most dubbed versions of Inuyasha they pronounce the name "ren" (like the name Ren). Secondly, in Inuyasha Rin's name is spelled with hirigana -‚è‚ñ- so it doesn't mean "cold", it actually has no meaning.

Rin doesn't simply mean "cold, severe". Rinretsu 凛冽 for example means "cold" (and really freezing, ice cold), but Rin 凛 or ririshii 凛々しい can also mean "dignified, gallant, courageous, handsome etc". [noted -ed]

The pronunciation is very close to "Lynn".

林 can also be pronounced Rin, and means woods or forest. However, as far as I can discern, it is usually pronounced hayashi in surnames.

I love the name Rin because it's simple, beautiful, and for the meaning behind it. There are not enough names in this world that have negative meanings. I looked all over the place for a feminine name that meant evil, but Rin was as close as I could get.

I like how it could be a nickname for Kathryn and thereby have two meanings.

The character Rin from Shinbokuji Youmonogatari ruined this name in my opinion.

Rin Kokonoe is the main character in the lolicon anime/manga series "Kodomo No Jikan".

Orin/Rin Kaenbyou of the Touhou Project bears this name.
Dianaisme12  8/29/2010
People always give the bad meaning of this name, and it's not okay. "Rin" also has lovely meanings.

If you write it " 鈴 " it means "bell". And if you write it like I write my name: " 琳 " it means "Jewel".

See? It doesn't have to be such a depressing name!

Another kanji for this name is 綸 which means "silk cloth."

Rin is the name of a well known anime character, from the anime 'Blue Exorcist', and he is actually male even though this says the name is feminine.

My name is Katherine. I kinda want to go by Rin now.
Katherinew12  11/8/2015
REEN sounds too snotty and it just hurts my ears. That's why I prefer pronouncing it RIN.
lilolaf  1/9/2016
Two bearers I just thought of. Rin Suzune from senran kagura and Rin Tosaka from fate/stay night.
miyamosuiren  6/10/2016
In the names Rin and Len (from Vocaloid), the names are a pun on right and left and were probably somewhat derived from English.

Rin is also the name of a character from the anime 'Free!' (At least, I think that's the name of the anime... It's a swimming anime).

I'm currently writing a book of the Snow Queen's daughter, "The Snow Princess". Despite the usage in most anime and manga, I took this meaning and made it the name of the Snow Queen.
