While many baby names have been around since medieval times, this feminine form of Kendrick is a relatively new player in the baby-name game, having made the popularity charts for the first time in the 1940s. It’s a pretty, friendly name with a girl-next-door vibe. The name is Welsh—as is Kendrick—and has several possible meanings, but “greatest champion” is a favorite. (The others are “wise ruler” and “high hill.”)
