There was a famous wise woman of County Clare called Biddy Early. She cured people with medicine made from herbs and never charged any money.

A biddy is two things: 1. a baby chicken. and 2. a bad-tempered old lady. Nuff said.

I believe they call the little girl in Sinclair Lewis's "Kingsblood Royal" Biddy. She's a pretty annoying little girl who uses her dog's name (an inappropriate name in itself) in inappropriate ways (i.e. calling the hired help by it).

I love this name; it's so sweet! I don't think I would give it as a full name; rather I'd prefer to call my daughter Bridget and call her Biddy for short. I think it would also work as a nickname for Britney, Brianna, etc.

My friend always calls an old lady an "Old Biddy." I am sure she's not the only one who does either. Not advised.

Found in George Bernard Shaw's work "Major Barbara" on Lady Britomart "Biddy" Undershaw, the mother of Salvation Army Officer Barbara Undershaw.

My husband and I call our newborn daughter Brigit by the nickname Biddy or Biddy-Bee. I used to dislike this nickname, but after having Brigit, it just seemed to come naturally.
