Sidney Origin and Meaning

The name Sidney is both a boy's name and a girl's name of French origin meaning "Saint Denis".
While Sidney in this spelling has a long history as a girls' name, it fell off the Top 1000 from the early 50s until 1990. Then it reemerged as one of the newly chic androgynous names for girls, rising into the Top 300 before falling off the Top 1000 list again in 2016. Sydney is now the more fashionable form.
