Abigail is the daughter of the title character in Christopher Marlowe's "The Jew of Malta". In the beginning she helps her father in his intrigues but when she finds out about his involvement in her lover's death she converts to Christianity and enters a nunnery to atone for her sins (although her character is rather positive in this biting play, this act is probably ironic as Marlowe depicts the clergy as being extremely hypocritical).

I fell in love with the name Abigail/Abbey when I started watching the West Wing and saw that the first lady's name was that. It just seemed like such an elegant name. She was Abigail in formal situations and Abbey at home with her husband, like Abigail Adams. Very pretty name.

This name has risen in popularity in equal measure to the decline of literacy. Please stop naming your daughters this people, and read The Crucible. Good Grief.
