- Comments and insights on the name Ashlyn: | Edit
I know an Ashlyn and she is very sweet and quiet. Our friends call her Ash or Ashy. Her name isnt that popular and it's quite unique. I've never met any Ashlyn's other than her. Don't actually know when the name started, my guess is in the early 1990s, but if you are having a daughter and you think this name is cute, go for it bc you won't regret it..
My daughter's name is Ashlyn :) I chose her name because I like the Irish name Aisling...I spelled this the way it sounds. VERY pretty and I love the meaning: vision, dream :)
My name is Ashlyn! I am 20 years old and I attend Baylor University. I was named after my sisters babydoll :) I absolutely love my name. I very rarely encounter other girls with my name, and that is why I love it so much! I think it is very feminine and unique. I feel like it reflects my personality well. I am very friendly, outgoing, music oriented, and intelligent. I get complimented on my name incredibly often, especially if I state my whole name (Ashlyn Nicole). This name is new, fresh, and I couldn't imagine being anyone else!
My sister's name is Ashlyn. She is also incredibly outgoing, music oriented, and intelligent! She is always longing to be with friends (although so am I) hanging out for the night. She spends most of her time and money on them. However, I have met a few Ashlynn's and one other Ashlyn, but it is not as common as my name. I hear "Abby, Abbie, and Abi" in the halls so much! However, I still love my full name (it's very original and great). Ashlyn, to me is a smart name and also outgoing and musical. My sister is also GORGEOUS! it's a pretty name to me.
