Origin: (Old English, Greek)
Pronuncition: (SIHD-nee, SID-nee)
Though now a days it is seen as primarily a female name. In the past and even some males now a days have been and are named this. I saw a movie where this name was spelled Cydney and I really love that spelling the best followed by Sydnee. I have a character in one of my novels named Sydney. It's a nice name with a good look, meaning and sound to the name.
