"brave in battle"

Casey Origin and Meaning

The name Casey is a girl's name of Irish origin meaning "brave in battle".

One of the original unisex Irish surname names, energetic Casey bounced onto the scene in the 1960s, then peaked in the 1980s for both boys and girls. Today Casey is having a resurgence for both girls and boys and re-entered the charts on the girls' side, likely due to the character Kayce Dutton (pronounced like Casey) on the hit show Yellowstone.

"Casey at the Bat" is an 1888 poem by Ernest Thayer.
