Cash: Meaning, Popularity, Origin of Baby Name Cash

Cash

Pronunciation: KASH (key)

Americans rediscovered this name starting in 2003, the year country music legend Johnny Cash died. The name's cowboy aura is much older, though. You could easily have met a Cash back in the 1870s in a Western outpost like Kansas.

Comments and insights on the name Cash: | Edit

We named our second son Cash. Most people love the name as much as we do but we have had the occasional joke and snigger. But that hasn't cast any doubt in my mind about our name choice. The name suits him completely and I couldn't imagine calling him anything else. It's strong but edgy at the same time. His nickname is Cashew.

Personal experiences with the name Cash: | Edit

We named our five year old son Cash and have never questioned our decision to name him this. I heard this name during my first trimester and it stuck. It fits his looks and personality so well, and I still absolutely adore the name. I have honestly never had anyone tell me it was a bad choice, in fact most people tell me that they love the name. I have never met another person with his name but I do know that one couple named their little boy Cash about three years after my son was born. I love that it is unique and not common but yet it's still not so far out there that it's just plain weird. Best name in the world! :)
