Dixie Origin and Meaning

The name Dixie is a girl's name of Latin origin meaning "I have spoken or tenth".

A saucy showgirl, wisecracking waitress kind of name, Dixie can also be considered a place name, one that has become problematic because of its association with the antebellum South. The Dixie Chicks recently dropped Dixie from their band name because of its association with slavery and white privilege.

The name originated from the ten-dollar bills used in French-speaking New Orleans, which came to be called dixies, or else from the Mason-Dixon line. Dixie, which had been as high as Number 167 in the late 1930s, jumped back onto the popularity list in 2007 and has been on and off the bottom of the Top 1000, though we expect the negative associations to take it out of consideration as a baby name..

Dixie Carter was a TV actress best known for playing Julia Sugarbaker in the sitcom Designing Women. Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill and model Lily Aldridge named their daughter Dixie Pearl in 2012. Dixie D'Amelio, older sister of dancer Charli, is a newly-minted Tik-Tok star.

This name not only has the sound "dicks" in it, but it also has connotations with slavery (the Mason-Dixon line), which is why the Dixie Chicks have changed their name to The Chicks. Overall, too many unpleasant associations.

Dixie has slowly won me over after seeing little Dixie on American Idol. Totally Southern and such a little doll!

While I agree this isn't a great given name, I do think it would make a cute nickname for another D name. Also, I think the sexual reference is rather irrelevant considering many Richards have been called Dick for years.

There are so many reasons to NOT use this name. Dixie cups, Dixie Lee fried chicken, the fact that it has "dix" as a syllable, it sounds like "ditzy"...And besides all that, it's not even attractive.
