Meaning:Holy day; Religious festival
It’s hard to hear the name Holliday and not think of Broadway dynamo Jennifer Holliday from Dreamgirls. Mainly English in origin, this gender-neutral gem comes from the name Holladay, which is derived from the Old English word haligdæg, meaning “holy day” or “religious festival.” The name Holliday was also said to be appointed to those born on a day of religious importance. So if your little one happens to arrive on a Sunday or during the Christmas season, a name like Holliday is a fine selection.
