Name: Lynn

Literal meaning

"The doctors say we should try to raise it as a girl and see how things go."


Famously confined to the Scottish Highlands, then to prison, then to bed in a rush, the name Lynn was originally used inappropriately to refer to the dead, before it escaped to France with the help of sympathisers.
