Etymology & Historical Origin - Sadie

Sadie originated as a nursery form of the name Sarah. Sarah is a Hebrew name borne in the Book of Genesis as Abraham’s wife and Isaac’s mother. In Genesis 17:15, God said to Abraham, “As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name.” The name “Sarai” possibly comes from the Hebrew word for ‘contentious.’ By changing her name to “Sarah” God is essentially bestowing blessings upon her as ‘princess.’ In Hebrew, the name Sarah indicates a woman of high rank. The name was taken up by the French in the Middle Ages and by the 17th century, Sarah was one of the most popular names in England. It’s not clear when the pet form Sadie originated, but it likely occurred in England by the 18th century and eventually became an independent name in its own right.

Popularity of the Name Sadie

The name Sadie has existed on the U.S. popularity charts since the government began tracking naming trends over 100 years ago. At the turn of the 20th century, Sadie was flying high on the Top 100 list of most favored girls’ names. As the century progressed, however, American parents lost interest in the name and by the mid 1960s, Sadie disappeared from the charts entirely. After a brief hiatus, the name returned to the charts in 1974 and has enjoyed a steady climb to the top once again. It hasn’t reached a Top 100 position since 1908, but given the triumphant return of other 100-year-old names, it may be just a matter of time. Sadie is a cute and unpretentious name; simple yet energetic. And thanks to The Beatles song, it also boasts a little undeniable sex-appeal.

    Literary Characters of the Baby Name Sadie

    Sadie Hawkins (Li'l Abner Comic Strip) It’s hard to believe, but the "Sadie Hawkins Dance" was borne from a comic strip created by Al Capp in the late 1930s. Sadie was one of his characters in the popular, long-lasting cartoon strip. She was a resident of Dogpatch and referred to as "the homeliest gal in the hills" who grew tired of waiting for suitors. The first annual Sadie Hawkins Day was not a dance, but a foot race, wherein the spinster ladies of the town would give chase to the unmarried men. If caught, matrimony would be the consequence. Within a year of the strip appearing (November of 1937), Sadie Hawkins became an event that took on a life of its own as it swept through high schools and college campuses across the nation. The Sadie Hawkins Dance requires a reversal of roles so that the ladies ask the young men of their choosing to accompany them on the date. In other words, the women become the aggressors.
