It would be embarrassing to have this name, because it has the word shag in it.

As a girl with the name Abi, I personally think that the name Abishag would be cruel. And the meaning "my father strays"? What does that mean like "my father cheats"?

Abishag was a young woman of Shunem, distinguished for her beauty. She was chosen to be a helper and servant to David in his old age. Among Abishag's jobs was to lie next to David and keep him warm; however, David did not have sexual relations with her (1 Kings 1:4). After David's death Adonijah persuaded Bathsheba, Solomon's mother, to entreat the king to permit him to marry Abishag. Solomon suspected in this request an aspiration to the throne, and therefore caused him to be put to death (1 Kings 2:17-25).

The name has no meaning but the prefix Avi (shag has no meaning!)

The last four letters of the name make it sound very unfortunate! Maybe in Hebrew it would sound nicer.
