Meaning:White island
Whittany is a girl’s name of Old English origin. Because it means “white island,” it may be referring to someone from Whitney on Wye in Herefordshire, England. This is because the River Wye against which this village stands was recorded as white water in the Domesday Book, which possibly could have coloured the placename too. So choosing this name for your little one can give roots while encouraging curiosity, exploration, and adventure.
