US Popularity:957
Meaning:Crown; Garland
Do you love the name Stephen but need a distinctly feminine name? Consider Stephanie, which was derived from the Greek word stephanos, meaning “crown” or “garland.” It was a huge hit in the 1970s and '80s and still has a decent presence on American babies’ birth certificates. If you want to be original, drop the second “e” for Stephani or go with a “y” ending for Stephany. Or change the “a” to another “e,” like Stephenie Meyer, the author of the Twilight series.
