Gender: F Meaning of Flynn: "son of the red-haired one" Origin of Flynn: Irish

A winning last-name-first Celtic choice, Flynn is still mostly used for boys, such as the son of Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr. Though, as with other Irish surname names, from Quinn to Flannery to Makenna, there's no reason it couldn't work for girls.
