'LYN' names and Evelyn....
So I am liking Evelyn more and more but wanted to hear some feedback on this name in particular and the 'LYN' trend that seems to have increased in the past few years....
I really dislike it. No offense, but when I hear names like Ashlyn, Maelyn, Gracelyn, etc.... they sound so made up and trendy to me and I am going for classic and NON-trendy. I think names like Marilyn are more similar to Evelyn and are classic even though it "naturally" or "genuinely" has the 'LYN' ending. Or am I mistaken and these are just where the smoosh-names began?
This is honestly one of the only reasons I am hesitant to use this name --(the 'LYN' ending). I almost with I could change the classic spelling to 'Evelin" or something else to avoid the 'LYN' at the end.
Please be honest in your feedback... Do you think Evelyn is considered to be lumped in with the other 'LYN' names that are out there? Am I making too much of this??
