æT þǣRE > SīDAN īEGE > SIDNEY
MEANING:
This name comes from an English surname. It is probably derived from an Anglo-Saxon place name (æt þǣre) “sīdan īege”, meaning “wide island”. Sidney became widely used as a given name in English speaking countries during the 19th century, with much of its use in the United States, after the American Revolution, being due to admiration for Algernon Sidney as a martyr to royal tyranny. People with this given name born in the United States during the 19th century include Sidney Lanier, American musician and poet (1842–1881) and Sidney Homer, classical composer (1864–1953).
