What do you think of the name Arlyn?

(Pronounced Arlen, like the place) I like the name for a girl, but I am worried people will think it is Arline. Thoughts?

  • I think it's lovely!!!!!! Seriously, it's terrific. I cannot imagine someone being so lame as to mispronounce it. LYN = lin/lynn not line.

  • I heard it in my mind as Ar Lynn... not Arline. You could alter the spelling to make it sound the way you want too.

  • It's different and I think I like it. It reminds me of the name Arden, which I love.

  • And I instantly pronounced it as Ar-Lynn. I think people would think it's pronounced Ar-line if it was spelled Arlin or something like that.
