Behind the Name: Somerlyn

Hi Jennifer!

I have always been a fan of the name Summer and recently I have came across the name Somerlyn. I was wondering if this is a made up name and/or what it means? Do you think this would be a good girls name?

somerlynHi Kenzie,

Somerlyn would be what we call a “combination name” where it combines two different names: Somer/Summer and Lyn. If you combine the meanings, it would mean “Summer Beauty.” I like it!

Sincerely,
Jennifer
