That is my cousin's name too. She has two Ds instead of one.

For me, this is one of the best spellings of the name. I prefer it to Adeline, from the point of view that it takes away the "line" or "lyn" confusion - how to pronounce the name. It is a straight forward phonetic spelling, similar to Madelyn, and therefore, I really like it.

autumnreverie Says:


This is the only spelling variation of Adeline that I like. I prefer to keep names simple or with their original spelling.

Hailey Says:


I worked at a preschool for 7 years and there were 3 Adelynns. And they were all in the same class, oddly enough, so it was funny to watch the parents squirm as their "original" name was used 2 other times in the same class.

Charity Says:


We named our daughter "Adelyn Grace". We were undecided on a name, and while scrolling through Pinterest for nursery ideas, I saw a room with "Adelyn" above the crib. I ran it by my husband, and we loved it!
