Pamelyn Name Meaning & Origin

Pamelyn

Pronunciation: n/a

Origin of the name Pamela:

Coined by the English poet and statesman Sir Philip Sydney (1554 - 86) for the name of a character in his pastoral Arcadia. It seems to have been pure invention, for there are no other names upon which it could have been based. The name was originally pronounced pam-EE-lah, and in the 18th century pah-MEL-lah. It was not until the 20th century that the pronunciation evolved to PAM-ah-lah and the name became common.
