The name Dixie means From The South In The U.S. and is of French origin. Dixie is a name that's been used by parents who are considering baby names for girls.
Louisiana issued a ten dollar bill called the "Dix" -- the French word for ten. The bills were often nicknamed "Dixies" like we would say "fivers" now. The South then became known as "Dixieland" or "Dixie" for short.
