Meaning: rhythmic pattern in music
Alternate spellings: Kadence, Kaydence
Music lovers might choose Cadence – it refers to rhythmic patterns, a sequence of chords or the fall in pitch or tempo. (All of those other musical terms don’t make the cut on the popular names list. Not a lot of girls named Tempo.)
Cadence first hit the list of popular names in 2002.
