This name came about as an alternative to the mega-popular Ashley, with which it shares the Old English origins associated with the ash tree. Ashlyn, sometimes spelt Ashlynn, is the English-language spelling of the Irish name Aisling, which means “vision” or “day-dream”. It’s soft, feminine and a little whimsical, a lovely name with lots of old Irish charm!
