Etymology & Historical Origin - Kadence

Kadence is an Americanized simple respelling of Cadence. Cadence is an English vocabulary word signifying the rhythmic flow of a sequence of sounds. The Latin word “cadentes” means ‘falling’ and The Harvard Concise Dictionary of Music and Musicians defines a cadence as: “a melodic or harmonic configuration that creates a sense of repose or resolution [finality or pause]" – which gives one a sense of ‘falling’ as the Latin origin suggests. Cadences are categorized as either weak or strong depending on the force of the finality it imbues and the sense of closure it creates. As a female given name, Cadence is a very recent coinage distinct to the 21st century and specific to the United States. Kadence followed shortly thereafter as an alternate made-up spelling.

Popularity of the Name Kadence

Americans love to change “C”s to “K”s (just think of the Kardashians). Kadence is no exception to this typical American trend. While the authentic spelling of the name, Cadence, first appeared as a female given name in the United States in 2002, Kadence came along immediately after in 2003. Cadence is the most popular spelling of this name, while Kaydence comes in second. Kadence is currently in third place with Caydence as the caboose. Kadence’s presence in the American psyche is certainly influenced by names like Kaylee, Katelyn, Kayla, Kayden, and Kaylyn. Parents in the United States simply can’t get enough of these “Kay” names for their daughters. So what do we do? Why, we invent some more! We all know that this country is one of the most innovative and this holds true for our name creations as well.
