I love how soft and girlish Ashlyn sounds, especially with the beautiful meaning "dream". It's one of those names everyone sort of dismisses without realizing how pretty it really is.

I though Aisling was pronounced 'ash-leen'.

Kitt McIntyre Says:


I named my daughter Ashlynn. When I was pregnant I dreamed I was calling out the name. I had never heard of the name, when I looked it up and it meant dream. It gave me goose bumbs. I told the name to her father and he loved it. It was the only name that both of us liked on the extensive list of names I made. She was destined for it is all I can say.

MrsFox Says:


This name cannot be classed as Irish. There is no Y in the Irish alphabet, this is an Americanism of Aisling, (Ash-ling).
