Short, sweet and oh-so feminine, the name Amy was borne of the greatest emotion of all: love. Amy is derived from the Latin amare and the French aimé, both meaning “loved”. The alternative spelling Aimee is a direct translation of the French word aimée, meaning “a loved woman or girl”. It’s a simple, unpretentious name for a baby girl, and short enough to be its own nickname!
