Meaning of Cassidy

Cassidy's name is the transferred use of an Irish surname originating from the old Gaelic personal name. Ó Caiside (meaning son of Caiside) comes from elements of the Gaelic “cas”, meaning 'curly hair', which would have been used as a nickname. The O'Cassidy clan were physicians to the kings of Ulster (Northern Ireland) from the 14th to 17th centuries. The O'Cassidy's were known for their high level of education, their literary prowess, and their general intelligence. Cassidy could also have developed as an expanded form of the female nickname Cass, a pet form used for Cassandra dating back to the Middle Ages.

Popularity

Cassidy first entered the American charts as a female given name in 1981. The name made some chart jumps very quickly and was moderately successful for most of the 1980s. Cassidy jumped another 200 chart positions in 1993 -1994 likely influenced by popular TV actor Kathie Lee Gifford- who named her daughter Erin Cassidy Gifford in 1993. For a brief year (1999), Cassidy even earned a spot on the Top 100 of the naming list of the most commonly used girl. However, since the turn of the 21st century, this name has been showing backward momentum. It should also be noted that Cassidy was used as a male given name and appeared on the US naming charts for boys from 1983 to 1992. It is no longer considered unisex, Cassidy is pretty much given exclusively to girls now. Cassidy was probably also a favorite among deadheads (fans of the Grateful Dead) as the band often performs their song "Cassidy" at their many concerts across the country. The song reads in part: “Ah child of countless trees, ah child of boundless seas. / What are you, what are you meant to be? / Speak your name for you was born for me, / I am born, Cassidy “and the song ends:“. Fare thee well now, let her life continue by her own design. / There's nothing to say now, let the words be yours, I'm done with mine.” Does your little curly-haired baby look like a Cassidy?

Cassidy is my name, but I'much prefer the nickname Cassie. I love all the nicknames possible with this name, but I am a little concerned about how it will age as I get older.

The name Amber doesn't fit me at all! It has unfortunate associations with strippers. It's kinda trashy sounding. Not surprisingly, I was born to an underage mother (I love her dearly & she's a great mom, but even she'says she would have given me a different name had she been more mature). I'm going to change it to something classier.
