Sometimes a nickname becomes more appealing to some parents than the original name, so they just go with the nickname as the given name, and that's the case with Abby, the endearing, no-nonsense name that came from Abigail. It's a gender-neutral name but more often given to girls; for boys, it's often a nickname for names like Abelardo or Abbott. While Abigail enjoys life from her Top 25 perch, Abby has a more modest baby-name ranking.
