Another Grey Baby Name!

Another Grey Baby Name!

It feels like we are constantly writing about Grey's Anatomy and baby names!  

Imagine the pressure you'd be under if you worked on the set of the popular television series and trendy name hive? Apparently Jesse Williams who plays Dr. Avery, and his wife Aryn Drake-Lee were up to the task.  They welcomed a baby girl named Sadie in December, according to a report in US Weekly

The name Sadie was origionally a nickname for Sarah. However, Sadie as a name in its own right has made the top-1000 names list in the U.S. almost every year that the Social Security Administration has been tracking such things. Probably best known for a generation of mid-century Americans by its association with Sadie Hawkins Day, a folk event in which (gasp!) girls could ask boys out on a date, Sadie feels much fresher today, with the actress Sadie Frost as its primary pop culture association. Still, in our post-feminist era, Sadie Hawkins Day is a quaint relic of the past, and the name Sadie holds an old-fashioned appeal. 

What do you think of the name Sadie?  Do you have other favorite Grey's names?

Makes me think of "Sadie, Sadie married lady ..." but it is a cute and spunky name, imo.

I'm called Sarah in everyday life and at work, but some family and friends call me Sadie. I love my nickname, but it's reserved for close family, friendds, which I think makes it more special.

I know a LOT of people with dogs named Sadie, so would avoid it for a baby.
