Is Allyn vs. too masculine???

Hey ladies!! My husband and I are expecting a baby girl on July 25!! We didnt rewlly find any great first names for her until about 3 weeks ago. We were looking through my old school yearbook and came across a gitl with the namd Allyn. We thought it over and now it’s our top name for our baby girl!! Our only problem is that we think it might be a little masculine for her , but what do you think? Her nickname will be Allie if we decide on Allyn. Her siblings are: Ryan and Gemma. Thank you, Penny and Derek

Yes it’s way too masculine. How about Alyson?

That’s the thing, we like Allyn but not a fan of Alyson.

What about Ali Lynn as a double first name? Or something like that?

Just name her Allie if that is what you are going to call her all the time. Allie is fine by itself.

I love Allyn for a girl, I don’t find it masculine at all.

It’s still Allen. Everyone will still think she’s a boy. Alice, Allison, Ellen, Alena, Alina, Lina, Lynn/Lynne, Aylin, Eilen are all similar names that would suit a girl/woman.

What about Aline (a-LEEN) or Alina (a-LEE-na)? I personally like Allyn, but do think it would cause complications for her.

I’ve always found Alan/Allen/Allyn to sound very girly. On a boy, it sounds dated and common, but on a girl it sounds fresh.

Alan and Allyn sound identical, so it is rather masculine, sorry. What about Ellen, or just Allie? Maybe Avalon?

Alan/Allyn is completely masculine its not unisex.
