Gender: F Meaning of Sadie: "princess" Origin of Sadie: Diminutive of Sarah Sadie's Popularity in 2015: #52

Sadie started as a nickname for Sarah, but their images couldn't be more disparate. Where Sarah is serious and sweet, Sadie is full of sass and spunk.

Sadie has been soaring in popularity for over a decade; it was at Number 52 in 2015. Its last heyday was a century ago. She's been chosen for their daughters by Adam Sandler and Christina Applegate, among others.

In popular culture, there's Somerset Maugham's Sadie Thompson, portrayed by Joan Crawford in Rain, Sadie Hawkins Day, where the girls get to ask the boys to dance, and songs like the Beatles' Sexy Sadie.
