Kadence Name Meaning & Origin

Kadence

Pronunciation: KAY-dəns (key)

A Cadence is a rhythmic flow of sounds, as in a poem or a marching song. In the space of a few years in the early 2000s it suddenly became a popular name. A movie character (from American Wedding) was a launching pad, and fashionable nicknames worked as turbo-boosters. Creative spellings move the name away from its musical roots into Kaitlyn territory.
