Tabby is a girl’s name of Aramaic origin. It’s a shortened form of Tabitha, which means “gazelle.” In the Bible, it was the name of a woman raised from the dead by Saint Peter in the Christian Bible. Popular in 18th-century New England, Tabitha later experienced a revival in the US thanks to a character in the TV series Bewitched. Tabby is a sweet shortened form of this vintage-sounding name that has the added advantage of bringing to mind adorable stripy cats!
