Abigail is a biblical Hebrew name meaning 'father in exaltation'. Appearing in the Bible as the name of Nabal of Carmel's wife, King David's sister, and also his wife, the name Abigail first rose to the fore in the 17th century. 200 years later, in the 19th century, its popularity began to dwindle. It has recovered strongly since the 1970s and remains popular today.

American Meaning: The name Abigail is an American baby name. In American the meaning of the name Abigail is: The father's joy.
Hebrew Meaning: The name Abigail is a Hebrew baby name. In Hebrew the meaning of the name Abigail is: Father rejoiced, or father's joy. Gives joy. 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. Some time after the release of the play 'The Scornful Lady' (1616), which featured a character named Abigail, the name became a slang term for a servant, and it grew less common. It was revived in the 20th century.

I started dating an Abigail a while back, she is amazing!
The girl who is always searching for herself. The girl who feels beautiful when spreading joy to others, but has difficulty doing so. The girl who may often fear losing her sanity, because she so often comes close to it, but you never know it because she settles quietly to the side of the room. The girl who tends to keep to herself, but if you give her reason to trust her and time to open up, and you treat with respect, then you're in for an amazing experience with a beautiful person. The girl that intimidates you, in some way or another, because of her silent power, so everyone leaves her to be alone. She is highly intuitive and creative, with a vast imagination. She is strong, intelligent, and knows what is beautiful in life.
The beautiful, smart girl kept to herself, drawing in the margins of her notebook, so even the boy who recognized her beauty left her alone. She's such an Abigail.
The most gorgeous girl that you could ever come across. Words can not explain her, and her flawlessness. Whoever has her, as their girlfriend is the most luckiest man in the entire universe.

A beautiful girl, has lots of friends, crazy fun, and is always single.
