Gender: F Meaning of Heidi: "of noble birth" Origin of Heidi: Diminutive of Adelheid; German Heidi's Popularity in 2013: #353

Heidi became known--and popular--via the 1880 eponymous children's classic by the Swiss writer Johanna Spyri and, despite decades of American Heidis of all sizes, shapes, and personalities, the name seems permanently tethered to that spunky little girl on the Alpine mountaintop in the book and Shirley Temple movie.

The movie was released in 1937, and two years later the name popped onto the charts, and would, a few decades later, be a Top 100 name for close to twenty years. The prominence of Heidi Klum on the Runway has given it a new recent bump.
