I would love to know if there's anyone else out there who shares my name and who is as old, or older than I! I have met very few Cadence's but have heard of many young children with the name through other people. I loved my nickname growing up(Cady) and didn't mind that it was mispronounced once in a while. If it is misspelled as "Katie", I learned to just let it go. It was also easier as a kid because I didn't have to explain "cadence" all the time. I said "Cady" and they assumed "Katie" and that was that. I love my name to this day I am so happy to share it with future generations." Feb. 21, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I named my daughter Cadence, we spell it Cadynce Rose so it would be easier to shorten to "Cady" if we wanted. I love the name and suits our little one to a "T" I think it is a strong yet beautiful and feminine name. I have had mixed reactions to it, but when I tell people the meaning: "melodious" or rythmic people usually love it. I agree that the popularity of "Caden" for a boy has raised the popularity but I still feel it is unique but not too unheard of. I am glad we chose it." Mar. 17, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "I named my daughter Cadence Michelle. I chose this spelling because Cadence is a real word. I am not a big fan of creative spellings. The name has become popular lately but not common. I heard it first on American Wedding or Shallow Hal. It's used in both movies. We call her both Cadence and Cadie. I wasn't sure at first about Cadie,Cadey,or Cady. I ussually have to repeat the name a few times when I tell peolple her name and sometimes they still think I said Cayden. Also the name is often pronounced Candace. I guess some people just see it that way at first glance. I still love the name Cadence and Cadie for a nick name and we get alot of positive comments on her name when we introduce her."
