The intelligent, beautiful Abigail was Old Testament King David's third wife, described as 'good in discretion and beautiful in form.' In the 1916 play The Scornful Lady, Abigail was a lady's maid.
  • This Old Testament name, used by one of David’s wives, was also a traditional term for a lady’s maid…meaning, it spent a long time not being popular. And while Abigail sounds like another member of the trendy grandma-names-are-cool-again tribe, it disappeared entirely from the charts during the early twentieth century. It finally started its comeback in the ’70s and ’80s though, rising rapidly through the ’90s and peaking (for now) at number four in 2005 -- just another tale of redemption.
  • From the Hebrew name אֲבִיגָיִל ('Avigayil) meaning "my father is joy". In the Old Testament this is the name of Nabal's wife. After Nabal's death she became the third wife of King David. As an English name, Abigail first became common after the Protestant Reformation, and it was popular among the Puritans. The biblical Abigil refers to herself as a servant, and beginning in the 17th century the name became a slang term for a servant, especially after the release of the play 'The Scornful Lady' (1616) which featured a character named Abigail. The name went out of fashion at that point, but it was revived in the 20th century.
