Meaning:Water sprite, water fairy
A name filled with wonder and whimsy, Nixie offers the perfect title for your sweet little water baby. This bright and perky name comes from the Old High German nihhussa and means “water fairy” or “water sprite.” These ethereal creatures are like merpeople—half fish, half human—and live in rivers. Inclined to drown mesmerized humans for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, nixies aren’t always the friendly type. With the ability to shapeshift, nixies often take the form of a beautiful man, maiden, or the elderly and can even turn invisible. Move over Dixie, Trixie, and Pixie because, with a name like Nixie, nobody will think twice about messing with baby!
