"Saint Denis"

Sydney Origin and Meaning

The name Sydney is a girl's name of French origin meaning "Saint Denis".

Sydney was a hot girls' name in the 1990s, but she's arguably still cool. One of the original old man names adopted for baby girls, Sydney's popularity may be down but she's not out.

Cool girl actress Sydney Sweeney, of Euphoria and White Lotus, is doing a lot to burnish Sydney's image. The city of Sydney, Australia is another familiar reference.

Katharine Hepburn played a female Sidney in her first movie, A Bill of Divorcement and lately there have been women named Sydney all over the big and small screens, including Annette Bening in The American President, and on Alias, Parenthood and Hope and Faith. Actor Sidney Poitier named his daughter Sydney back in 1973,
