Here in England, Lynn has not breeched the top 1000 for boys or girls during the last 16 years at least, if not more. So, with that in mind, it hasn't really 'gone to the girls. And even if it had, so what? Lynn is originally masculine, so regardless of how popular it gets on the female side of the spectrum, it will always look its best on boys.

This is a very clear, handsome and delicate name for a boy. For a girl it isn't so nice in my opinion.
