Other Origin(s):Turkish
Meaning:Long ago, once, yesteryear; Witch
Though her name isn't spoken often, the White Witch of The Chronicles of Narnia series does have a first name. Her name is Jadis, and this unique choice evokes something playful with a definition of "long ago," "once," and "yesteryear." If baby is bound to be an old soul, then the name Jadis comes ready to foster these past-loving notions. But, with the other half of the oh-so-fitting definition, baby's witchier side could be encouraged, too! From Jadis' Turkish origin comes the definition of "witch," giving the name a specific edge.
