Amy

beloved
ORIGIN: Latin
POPULARITY: 397
Taken from the Latin “Amata,” Amy—which sounds so contemporary—was actually around during the Middle Ages; after a few centuries’ absence, the name came back in the late 19th century. Parents in the 1970s chose Amy for their daughters if Jennifer—the most popular name of the day—didn’t work out. When you think of Amy, what comes to mind is a female who’s comfortable in her own skin, friendly, and dependable. She’s the girl who signs up to help with the food drive or offers to walk a sick neighbor’s dog. No wonder her name means “beloved.” Three of the best-loved Amys today are actress Amy Adams and comedians Amy Schumer and Amy Poehler.
