Emlyn vs. boy vs. girl

Hi, I love the Welsh name Emlyn on a boy, but I keep seeing it used for girls instead of Emmeline. What does it make you think of?

The Top Baby Name is...

Name Votes
Emlyn 0% (0 votes)
Boy 33% (4 votes)
Girl 67% (8 votes)


I have never seen this name until tonight, but every time I saw it on here, it made me think of a girl. I think both Emlyn and Emmeline sound girly to me (any name that ends with "lyn" sounds like a girl name to me).

What about Emlin or a non y spelling since that’s apparently very girly in America? Love the sound of Emlyn on a boy.
