Personal experiences with the name Sadie: | Edit

I was born in 1986 when the name wasn't super-common, every other person I met either had a grandmother, elderly mother or dog by the name. I have always gotten cooed over how cute my name is... however, coming from a Sadie who had it when it wasn't super-common, it's strange to see it starting to rise in the top name lists.

I was born in '85, and it's true...every person's dog has this name. Or so I get told...it's kinda annoying. :)

I gave my dog this name in '97 after seeing it in a story. I had no idea that it was actually a popular dog name. I didn't start hearing of other dogs with that name until nearly ten years later.

In the comic strip "Li'l Abner", Sadie Hawkins was the daughter of one of Dogpatch's earliest settlers, Hekzebiah Hawkins. She was known as "the homeliest gal in all them hills". When she reached the age of 35, in desperation, her father called together all the unmarried men of Dogpatch and declared it "Sadie Hawkins Day". Specifically, a foot race was decreed, with Sadie in hot pursuit of the town's eligible bachelors - and matrimony as the consequence.
