DP actually came up with this one (He likes Cadey as a nn - i don't, but am humouring him that i'd go along with it). I think I really like it, but if anyone else heard it, would you think it was chavy? Be honest please!

Cadey will get misheard as Katie her entire life. I don't like either Cadence or Cadey, to be honest, but the latter is worse.

I feel really bad saying this but it does sound a smidge "chavvy" to me. I don't know why really as in many ways its a perfectly nice name. I really dislike the nn Cadey though!

I rather like it - lovely meaning too.

It's horrid, and the name of a My Little Pony. Sorry.

It is actually Cadenza as it has a Latin/Italian origin, it is a lovely name if pronounced properly, very unusual not at all chavy.

Don't like it , doesn't it have something to do with how quickly cyclists pedal?

strictlovingmum Wed 31-Oct-12 00:12:13

No it doesn't, in musical piece Cadenza is part that bridges/pulls everything together, it is repeated several times so to be recognisable and memorable, lovely meaning, I think.
Hence the expression "Play me Cadenza"smile

Not Cadenza , I'm talking about Cadence , I'm pretty sure they are always going on about it during the Tour de France . However I don't like Cadenza either but that's just an opinion ,the world would be very dull if we all agreed

thanks all - gave me quite a lot to think about! Totally agree with the Cadey/Katie thing - I'm really NOT a fan of Cadey, but am still liking Cadence, not keen on Cadenza though, despite the lovely meaning.

I think Cadence may remind me of another name but I just can't put my finger on what it is!

Makes me think of a Dynasty character.

Cadence is the name for the end of a phrase/piece of music and the order of those chords - related to Cadenza but a different word and thing entirely. Honestly, I am right on this!

It sounds VERY American to me, but it is a pretty sounding word.

I think it is lovely, but as for Chav it is somewhere in between Kayden and Constance....

5madthings Wed 31-Oct-12 01:07:47

i would think you.had left an 'n' out and that it us caNdence. isnt that the name of phineous and ferbs big sister?

ScatterChasse Wed 31-Oct-12 01:10:31

I don't think it's chavvy particularly, I just don't think of it as a name, sorry.

If I hear 'cadence', in my head it's related to chord positions and whether it's imperfect/perfect/plagal etc.!

Greensleeves Wed 31-Oct-12 01:12:07

reminds me of candice

ScatterChasse Wed 31-Oct-12 01:12:44

Floral I've looked it up, in cycling it's the number of revolutions per minute, so basically pedalling speed!

IHeartKingThistle Wed 31-Oct-12 01:20:24

Got to love a good plagal cadence! Aaaaaaaa........mennnnnn. grin

Fluffypoms Wed 31-Oct-12 01:22:22

I like it

nancy75 Wed 31-Oct-12 01:25:34

It is the giant my little pony with wings they are advertising on boomerang

BettyLovesBillie Wed 31-Oct-12 11:18:51

Cadence does sound very chavvy to me!

Ephiny Wed 31-Oct-12 11:42:21

While I like the idea of it, I just don't think Cadence is very nice or elegant as a name, it just doesn't work for me, though Cady is a cute nickname.

Yes a cadenza is a different thing in music, it's an improvised usually quite virtuosic solo. I wouldn't use it as a name either, maybe the similar sounding Carenza/Kerenza which is quite nice and is an actual recognisable name!

ScabbyColdCrustyCatPuss Wed 31-Oct-12 13:16:17

I really like it, but agree with Cadey/katie. The other no too good options are Den or dense! But you could use Cay, I like that.

iheartmycat Wed 31-Oct-12 21:01:54

thanks all! i've decided this is a no-no, i think it was the cycling and my little pony references that put me off!! and thinking about it, it's a bit like a mix between Prudence, Constance and Kayden!

There was a baby Cadence on Jeremy Kyle the other day.
