Some names are music to the ears, and Cadence is one of them. The word “cadence” means a sequence of notes or chords comprising the close of a musical phrase. That makes Cadence a great fit for parents looking for a baby name with a musical connection. Since it’s a new name born in the 21st century, it has a more contemporary feel than other music-inspired names like Harmony and Lyric. While her name’s meaning may denote the end of a song, you can rest assured that this little girl is only getting started.
