I voted Abigail. It is a beautiful classic name.


Cadence does not have a Y in it. It means rhythm or flow and I like it only if spelt correctly.
Makenna doesn't mean daughter of anything. The correct spelling is MacKenna and the prefix 'Mac' means "son of"; all names begining with 'Mac' are masculine.

I know what all of the names mean, their origins, the common and uncommon ways to spell them, etc. I chose names and spellings that I preferred regardless if they're masculine or feminine. And I put a disclosure in my OP that the names and definitions were out of a baby name book. It's not like I'm pulling these out of thin air.
Thank you for your input though :)

You obviously don't because most of those meanings and origins are incorrect. Where did you find that info? Not trying to be rude, but they simply are not correct - like I said, I study anthroponymy and etymology and the meanings you have listed don't meake sense for the parts of language they come from.

IMO you should look the names up on multiple sites and compare what the meanings are. A lot of sites have completely wrong information.

Learn to read thoroughly hun. That's twice now that I've said the names and definitions were pulled directly from a baby name book.
>>The Complete Book of Baby Names by Lesley Bolton<<



Never once have I said the meanings were correct, simply copied from the book. Not that the meanings particularly matter to me, but most people are curious to know something.

I know, I just haven't got around to researching much online because I'm rarely on the computer. I haven't looked at any baby name websites yet. With all my kids, it's much easier to carry a book around with me. Then I can sneak a few pages in at a time between dirty diapers, baths, cooking, and shuttling kids to and from school :)
The meanings aren't a huge deal to me though. It's mostly just about liking the name for my husband and I.

ANYONE can write a baby name book, so that doesn't mean anything, lol.

I would HIGHLY suggest Behind The Name, it's one of the few sites thats based on etymology, though I have seen a few questionable things on there, not nearly as bad as most of them. I would also suggest joining the nameberry forums, they are generally very knowledgeable.

See, now that post is actually helpful! :)



Like I replied to someone else a second ago, I just haven't had time to research online. Too busy with my 4 rugrats! But, maybe if I managed to keep my eyes open past 10 one night I'll check them out :) Thank you for the info.

Yeah, they don't have EVERYTHING, but you're using a word, right? They don't have words, which I find annoying, I have a lot of "words" on my own list for this baby. I suppose just looking in the dictionary works for words, but I would still appreciate if they went through the history of that particular word being used as a name, KWIM?

Well, yeah, using a word but spelled wrong lol :oops:
Creedence, after the band Creedence Clearwater Revival.
It's funny because on other sites, especially the ones that show popularity, there are thousands of boys named Creedence every year.

I wonder why BTN doesn't have it then. My SO is loving Meadow right now - not sure how I feel about it.
