Abigail comes from Hebrew origins and means "my father is joyful." Though the name may seem a bit old-fashioned—one of the most famous non-biblical namesakes is, after all, Abigail Adams, the second First Lady of the United States—the name has interestingly been climbing the ranks in popularity over the past several years. Today, some of the famous namesakes include actresses Abigail Breslin and Abigail Spencer.
