Meaning:White island
Traditional, classic, and timeless are just a few words that come to mind when you hear this lovely moniker. As a variant of Whitney, perhaps some words that come to mind are superstar, talented, or the voice, thanks to Whitney Houston giving the name years of popularity in the spotlight. Typically feminine, Whitteny comes from the English settlement of Whitney-on-Wye in Herefordshire and means “white island.” While its meaning is quite ambiguous, we have no doubt baby can draw from previous bearers of the title for inspiration in life.
