If your daughter feels like fate, consider calling her Destiny. From the French word destine and a derivative of the Latin destinare—“to determine”—Destiny began its life as a first name in the last half of the 20th century. It’s got musical connections with bands and single talents both! The Disney star Miley Cyrus, was actually given Destiny as her first name when she was born in 1992. But certainly most famously, the girl group Destiny’s Child was a top act, from 1997 to 2006, and the name hit its peak in popularity
