Meaning:White island
With two Ts and not one, Whittney is a restyled version of the feminine name Whitney, popularized by sensational vocalist Whitney Houston. Hailing from the English settlement of Whitney-on-Wye in Herefordshire, the town was characterized by the peaceful white water running through the area, tying into the name’s meaning of “white island.” Your little one can infuse your heart with serenity and grace—and who knows, they might surprise you with the unexpected depths of their musical talent.
