lass of dignity, beauty and fruitfulness

Caelyn is a variant of the girl’s name Cailin (pronounced KAY-lin). It is of Gaelic origin, and its meaning is "girl, lass".
Olivia is of Latin origin, and its meaning is "olive tree". Coined by Shakespeare as the name of a much-wooed aristocrat in his play "Twelfth Night" (1599). He may have derived the name from the olive plant, or as a feminine form of Oliver. Biblical: the olive tree is a symbol of fruitfulness, beauty, and dignity. Today, "extending an olive branch" traditionally signifies an offer of peace.
