Lynn is a female name and there are two supposed meanings for it. The first is Welsh and it means Lake or 'by a lake' and the second is English and it means 'pretty'.

It is quite a popular name and though it is mainly a female name, it is occasionally used as a male name too. Although many people name their children 'Lynn' it is often short for another name such as 'Linda' or Carolyn'. Basically any name that ends with 'lyn' or 'linda' can be shortened to 'Lynn' to amke things easier.

All names have a meaning and most people are named something because of its actual meaning. Lynn may not always be a standalone name, but it is certainyl a common one and one that is quite modern too. It tends to suit both old and young and it is likely that the name will be used for years to come.

The word 'Lynn' is used both as a feminine and masculine names and it can trace its derivation from the Welsh language where it conveys the meaning of a 'lake'. But the word can work both as an independent name and also as a short form of Linda and any other name that ends with 'lyn' or 'line'; as you can call a person fondly with the word 'Lynn' who has Caroline, Carolyn, Lincoln or Linton as his or her first name.

Apart from being used as a name there are some places also that are known to the world with the name of Lynn. You can find a Lynn in the northeastern part of Massachusetts which serves as an industrial and also as a residential suburb for the city of Boston.
