Characteristics of Kassidy
Etymology & Historical Origin - Kassidy
Kassidy is an Americanized respelling of Cassidy. The name Cassidy is the transferred use of an Irish surname originating from on old Gaelic personal name. Ó Caiside (meaning son of Caiside) comes from the Gaelic element “cas” meaning ‘curly hair’ which would have been used as a nickname. The clan O'Cassidy were physicians to the kings of Ulster (Northern Ireland) from the 14th to the 17th centuries.

Popularity of the Name Kassidy
Kassidy is yet another example of changing a “C” name to a more phonetically appealing “K” name. Like Kris Jenner naming her daughters Kourtney and Khloé for example. Carla to Karla, Cadence to Kadence, Cassandra to Kassandra, Caitlin to Kaitlin. Then again, long ago the English changed the French Catherine to Katherine so be careful how much eye-rolling you do. Changing C names to K basically gives the name a modern, non-traditional, Americanized, cutesy quality. Be forewarned: your child will go through life saying “Kassidy. That’s Cassidy with a K.” We hear from many people that such a lifetime effort of correcting people can become quite tiresome (unless you’re a Kardashian). We say stick with Cassidy. It just looks better.
