screenshot of strange line break with auto hyphenation

The attached screenshot shows a portion of html with -webkit-hyphens:auto; enabled.
The entire page is marked with lang="en"

The auto hyphenation decides to break on Flynn and renders Fly-nn. This seems like a strange result. This is a single syllable word as far as I can determine, IPA /flɪn/. It's also not as if it really has to make a HARD line break and ignore the dictionary rules, there are plenty of other opportunities for breaking the line in that area.

This therefor seems like an error in the dictionary or the Syllabification algorithm.

Safari Version 11.1 (12605., MacOS 10.12.6 (16G1212).

Also reproducible in latests versions of iOS/Safari.
