abigail (AB-i-gayl) noun

A lady's maid.

[After Abigail, an attendant in The Scornful Lady (1610), a play by
Francis Beaumont and John Fletcher. She was probably named after the
Biblical character Abigail the Carmelitess, who often called herself
a handmaid. The name Abigail derives from Hebrew Avigayil meaning
"father's joy".]


Other than the traditional Hebrew meaning....the name isn't as pretty as I thought it was. :-P
