Dede is a girl's name of Welsh origin that comes from the name Dee, meaning "dark." It is also attributed as a diminutive of the Irish name Deirdre, which means "sorrowful," and the Latin name Diana, meaning "divine." These connotations contrast with the cute and sweet sound of the repeating sounds of the title. Because of this, Dede is a complex and layered moniker, perfect for a baby who can't be put in a box.
