Meanings and history of the name Aislinn: | Edit

From Gaelic, meaning "dream, vision". This name first came to popular attention in 1974 through Kathleen E. Woodiwiss' best-selling romance novel "The Wolf and the Dove", in which the beautiful heroine was named Aislinn. This book began a wave of popular romance novel characters with Gaelic names. They, along with other popular works such as Fleetwood Mac's 1977 hit song "Rhiannon", began a strong trend in the U.S. for previously unknown names from Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. Other names of this genre include Conor, Aidan, and Gavin for boys, and Maeve, Morgan, and Caitlin for girls.
