Variation of Ameline or Emmeline

Amilyn Origin and Meaning

The name Amilyn is a girl's name .

Amilyn is one of those names that sounds and feels a lot like other more popular names, from Emmeline to Amelia to Adeline, but was given to fewer than five baby girls in the US in 2021. This is despite the Star Wars character Amilyn Holdo -- General Leia's deputy in the most recent trilogy, played by Laura Dern. Seven baby girls were given the name in 2018, but it has not seen the lasting success of Kylo or Rey (or indeed Leia).
