one's certain fortune; fate
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: Destiny is the real name of Miley Cyrus (born in 1992) and the first name of Nas’ daughter (born in 1994). When the girl group Destiny’s Child was a top act, from 1997 to 2006, the name hit its peak in popularity.
