What Lies Within

,

Hi Jennifer!

I saw the name Janalyn on another website with unique baby names. I think that it’s a very pretty name, but do you think that it is too trendy?

Thanks, Kyleigh

Dear Kyleigh,

Yes, it sounds like a pretty name, and is definitely a combination of the names Jana and Lyn. However, be careful with words that lie within a name!  It may lead to teasing.

Therefore, I would not recommend using this name.

Sincerely,

Jennifer
