Baby Girl Pederssen, Sister to Holly

Baby Girl Pederssen, Sister to Holly | Name News | Scoop.it
I recently encountered a small child named Lynn and was BLOWN AWAY by it. I hadn’t Truly Seen the name Lynn for DECADES: my eye just went right past it as the filler middle name of maybe a third of the women I know. But as a first name, and NOW! It’s trim and unexpected, familiar yet extremely underused, feminine yet not a bit frilly. Lynn! Lynn!
Clare's insight:

^ This quote from Swistle really resonates with me. I'm certain there are lots of names I don't Truly See. And Lynn is definitely one of them... it's actually pretty great!
