The name Dixie is a girl's name of Latin origin meaning "tenth". Dixie and is often added to lists like Bad Girl Names and discussed in our forums with posts like "Adding Then Eliminating -- Girls Themed".

From the experts:

A saucy showgirl, wisecracking waitress kind of name, Dixie can also be considered a place name, although it won't be found on any map, being a generic term for the whole American South (coming from either 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.

Dixie Carter was a TV actress best known for playing Julia Sugarbaker in the sitcom Designing Women, and the name is also associated with the country music band The Dixie Chicks.

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.
