Came across Cadence in the baby name book and it struck a chord - quite liked the NN Cady.
But, does Cadence sound a bit posh and Cady a bit 'chav'?

I have come across one Kadence - with a K not C.
It sounds very American which is fine if you like that but personally I'm not - sorry.

I like it as it ends with the end sound 'ence/ance' and I dislike all the other ence names--eg Prudence, Constance, Florence etc.

The only reason I decided agaisnt it was because it is to much of a 'word' name for me. Which is a shame as I do like it. Am still looking for an 'ence' name I like though.

Cadence means' End/Finish' in music terms... which is a bit strange.

I particularly dislike it with a K

I know one cadence. I don't think it's particulary posh (poss the opposite). I'm afraid to day that everyone I have mentioned her to raises an eyebrow ar thd name. But then everyone I know prefers safe and 'normal' names ( myself included).

Cadence is the name of several companies (inc one involved with semiconductors!), and means the number of revolutions of the crank per minute or the end in musical terms....

Cady will have her spelling her name for evermore - "no, not Katie, Cady - C-A-D-Y"

Sorry, not keen on either

Thanks . . . you're right, I did think it was hormones making me think it was a nice name. smile

If you like Cady, Cadi might be an option? It's a Welsh name, short for Catrin. Pronounced Caddy though.
