Meaning:father of exaltation
Abbey is a gender-neutral name that means "father of exaltation." Although it might be most popular as a girl's name, it can also be used as a nickname for masculine names like Abbott and Abner. Abbey is derived from the Hebrew name Abigail, which in turn comes from the name Avigail. In the Book of Solomon in the Jewish Bible and the Christian Old Testament, Abigail is the name of King David's second wife who was renowned for her beauty and intelligence. She later became one of the seven Jewish women prophets and a respected wise woman. As the shortened form of this spiritual name, Abbey offers the best of both worlds—a modern sound that's still steeped in history and tradition.
