Robert LeRoy Parker, alias Butch Cassidy, was a notorious train and bank robber. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is a 1969 Western film starring Paul Newman and Robert Redford. The film bore little resemblance to the actual Cassidy and partner, but popularized their legends nonetheless.

I also love this name for some odd reason. This is my name and I am so happy I have it!
-- Cassidy  2/20/2006
It also means clever.

I think Cassidy is a very cute name! I would love to have this name. A good nickname for this name is Cassi (ca-see).

Cassidy was used for a male character on the TV show Veronica Mars.

I like it but it will only look good on you if you're younger than 30. From then on it won't work.
-- Anonymous User  1/29/2007
This strikes me as more of a surname (one of my mate's surnames so you'll see where I get that) or an American name. Cassie is a nice nickname though.
-- Luangi  4/8/2007
I can't imagine a boy having the name Cassidy! That is repulsive! The name is a little immature and is only good if you are under 10 years old.
-- HappyIguana  5/17/2007
I love this name for a boy - I mean, it works on a girl, too, but it just sounds more masculine to me. Although the nickname Cassie would be kinda weird on a boy. And I think, on the right person, the name Cassidy would age well.

Cassidy is a lovely name.
-- Zoey3453  10/20/2007
Cassidy is such a horrible name! It`s the worst name ever invented! :( :cry:
-- Dianaisme12  10/20/2007
I wonder if the root of this name, "Cas," could somehow be related to the name "Caesar." Both meanings have something to do with hair, after all.
-- Supermonasu  2/7/2008
For whatever reason, I've never been able to picture the name Cassidy on girls. I always think of guys when I hear the name. It's truly a wonderful name, too! :D
-- Jesus_Freak  3/26/2008
This is one of the most hideous names out there, and it always brings to mind that mean, spoiled, sexist pop star from decades ago, David Cassidy. Well, Cassidy was definitely his surname. I read he was very mean to his fans, and people who are mean to their fans are scum.
-- slight night shiver  4/20/2008
How could anyone say a name is "hideous", especially when basing it on one person? It's a great name, not bad at all. And on a side note, Caesar means hairy.
-- Lebeke  4/23/2008
Cassidy is the name of the vampire in the Preacher comic series, as well as a character in the video game Fallout 2.
-- Sam Harrison  5/27/2008
I love this name, and as everyone says they see it more for boys, I like it as girl version. I always see it on a girl.
-- Anonymous User  9/17/2008
Variant is "Cassity" (female).
-- Eirena  1/10/2009
In my opinion, this is a great name for a boy.
-- Anonymous User  1/12/2009
I think that it's beautiful for a girl or a boy, delicate sort of and beautiful but at the same time strong, and I don't understand you people who say it only sounds good for young people. I can easily imagine older people with this name.
-- Anonymous User  1/21/2009
I hate this name, especially on a girl. It doesn't sound very feminine. It sounds like a name for the spoiled child of yuppies. At least it can be shortened to Cassie.
-- bananarama  4/9/2009
Some of you people are mean! Cassidy is an AWESOME name, and I love it. It's amazing, and fits people of ALL ages, in my opinion at least.
-- Anonymous User  2/10/2010
I happen to like this "cass" name a lot better than the more common Cassandra (which often, to me, sounds like the name Sandra with a "kuh" prefix added). And either way, I still love the nickname Cassie. But I prefer Cassidy of the two names. However, I prefer both Cassidy & Cassandra over Cassarah *shudder*.
-- erb816  3/4/2010
I left a comment for Cassidy three years ago, and I'd like to amend it now. I no longer like "Cassie" for a girl, but I actually quite like Cassidy - for a boy. It reminds me of Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid.
-- erb816  3/14/2013
I hate this name. The sound is just so incredibly annoying and obnoxious.
-- Chrila96  11/27/2010
I like this name. I have a friend named Cassidy and she's really shy but really nice, so I guess that's what I think of when I hear this name.
-- Joy12  4/19/2011
I love the name Cassidy! My own name is Cassidy, you people who say it's ugly thanks. I'm a 14 year old girl with self esteem issues as it is and it's great to know that my name doesn't fit up to other peoples standards. That really helps!
-- Cassidy14  5/12/2011
This name would be very unique for either gender.
-- Hushpuppy  10/29/2011
Cassidy is my name and I'm a girl. I know it used to be a boy's name and still is in some places but that doesn't bother me. I love my name! The only two downsides are A), nobody can spell it until I tell them how and B), Cassie. I REALLY dislike people's desire to call me Cassie. It sounds really childish. That and people who don't know me THAT well that I haven't seen in a long time often remember my name as Cassie and not Cassidy. But I still love my name. And the Cassie thing isn't so bad, I just have people nickname me Cass instead. That way I have a whole county and lake to myself! ;) [Cass county & lake in Michigan...]
-- anoldfashionedgirl  3/12/2013
My name is Cassidy and I really love it. I think it sounds more girly. I don't like it at all for a boy! It only looks good if spelled right. I dislike when people spell it with a K. I spell mine C-a-s-s-i-d-y; the right way. I only like when people call me Cass. I hate being called "Cassie" it sounds ugly. I wouldn't change my name for 1000 dollars! So any Cassidy's out there, your name is beautiful. :)
-- Cassidy_  3/5/2014
Plus, Cassidy is too girly and if a boy's name was Cassidy it would sound so gay. I love the name Cassidy though! Because it's my name and it's so pretty. :)
-- Cassidy_  3/6/2014
Thank you Cassidy_ personally I don't appreciate people telling me that my name is crappy ok? If you're going to do that go to another site!
-- Cassidy24  4/3/2014
I hate this name. I personally think it's ugly.
-- justsomegirl  9/25/2014
I hate it when people hate on this name! This is the name of my best friend! Don't you people realize that some poor Cassidy may be reading this and crying that you are calling her ugly and stupid!?! The name Cassidy means: That shy girl who just wants to accepted and still be herself. She is an artist with a passion. It could be painting, writing, or even singing. Maybe something else. She wants to make others happy, even if she just had the worst day ever. She is a wonder that no one understands, and she likes that. She is imperfect, and likes that. She sees things through a child's eyes, which means she sees things we don't. She is a wonder that no one understands.

(P.S. That's my name too. Thanks for calling me ugly and a boy! Would you like me calling you ugly!?! Shut up and just don't comment you jerks!)
-- Lovegood12  3/30/2015
Pretty sounding, love cassie and cute meaning!
-- LV51sfan91  4/5/2015
I like it, but I do think it can seem tacky.
-- 2angelgoats  5/13/2015
Wonderful name spelt with a K for a girl. My daughter suits her name, she is a clever, kind, quarky, loving spirit. Any name haters, then why are you here looking up the name? One name does not mean that's what all people with that name are like. Judging books by their covers, what would others think of you hating on all people with that one particular name?
-- Anonymous User  6/24/2015
Seems more like a surname. Cassandra is a much prettier name for girls.

Before 1968, Cassidy was an Irish boy name for many, many years. I named my boy, Cassidy, because we are of Irish decent and he had curly, gold hair and he turned out to be very clever. That's what the name means. I also loved this name for many years before I named him that, in the early 1970's. It's a very beautiful, Irish BOY name.

Then in 1968, people in the U.S. decided to be cool and give their girls a cool name that happened to also be a BOY name. Then when Kathie Lee Gifford named her daughter, Cassidy, it turned into the most popular girl name.

To hear people put this name down, and actually say it's revolting for a boy name, is very rude and ignorant. Is this how you treat the children in your life? People are proud of their names. And there is nothing wrong with taking a boy name and turning into a girl name. It's been done with many boy names, especially in the U.S.

So people, please, why tear down something someone is so proud of? Get your facts straight before you start publically humiliating people's hard earned beloved name.

This is my name- even though I go primarily by Cass, I still love my actual name too! I mostly use Cass due to ease of other people spelling it, lol. It doesn't bother me that no one can spell it, but it gets to be overkill since no one can spell my last name either. And yes I am a girl, I do spell it with a C, and I do love the name and meaning- it means curly haired one also, which I am, so... that's awesome. :D

One con is that everyone mis-remembers my name as Cassie, Cassandra, or Cali... but like I said, paired with my last name, it made sense for me to go by Cass in non-formal situations. :p And that name is easier taken by people.

Lovegood12's description of people with this name is strikingly accurate for me :p

To the people who hate this name: I respect your opinion, and everyone thinks something different about a name, and that's fine. But maybe that's not a thing you should word that way/be so up front about?... luckily I already knew that most people hated my name, but it was still a little depressing to glance through all of you when I was commenting...

I love this name (mostly because it's my name), and I don't get why people hate it. It's just a name. I bet the people who are writing these nasty things about the name, have a hideous name themselves. You don't have to say it's hideous or horrible, just say you personally don't like the name. It offends me and a lot of other people with the name Cassidy. You don't have to worry about it if it's not your name, and if you don't like it, don't name your kid Cassidy. It's as easy as that. I bet a lot of people with the name Cassidy, would greatly appreciate it if you would stop with all the hate comments. Oh, and I definitely DO NOT think of this as a boy's name, I could never image a boy named Cassidy. I think of the name as very feminine.
