Other Origin(s):Aramaic, French, Greek, Hebrew
Meaning:Priest; Father's joy, father rejoices
Abbe is a gender-neutral name with Latin, Greek, Aramaic, and French origins. The consensus, however, is that it means “priest.” It’s usually given as a title of honor or as a nickname for a clergy member. That said, there are some who believe Abbe to be a short form of Abigail, in which case it would mean “father’s joy” and “father rejoices.” Whether you’d like to introduce the world to the apple of your eye or wish to impress your faith on to them, Abbe is a short and sweet name for any occasion.
