If your daughter feels like fate, consider calling her Destiny. From the Old French word destinée and a derivative of the Latin destinare—“to determine”—Destiny translates to "one's certain fortune" or "fate." This moniker began its life as a first name in the last half of the 20th century. It’s got musical connections with both bands and single talents, giving baby a harmonious touch! 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 throughout the 1990s and early 2000s. If you're looking for a name with vintage, Y2K vibe to it, Destiny is sure to brighten baby's future.
