Dixie is a baby girl name of French origin. Derived from the French word dix—meaning “ten”—Dixie directly translates to “tenth.” This baby name may be associated with a decade, but it’s also commonly recognized as a region in the United States known as the Old South. After the American Civil War ended, Dixie was no longer a land of slaves and became a historical location full of wonder and freedom. Whether baby will be raised in the South or is the tenth member of your family, the name Dixie won’t let you down.
