Short form of Sidney, French

Sid Origin and Meaning

The name Sid is both a boy's name and a girl's name meaning "Saint-Denis".
Sid originated as a nickname for Sidney, but we like it on its own, a la Sara Quin's and Jason Biggs and Jenny Mollen's sons. Sid Vicious, member of the band the Sex Pistols, gives this name a punk rock vibe.
