The name Abigail basically means 'her Fathers joy or, fountain of joy". The typical Hebrew and Tiberian terms for the name Abigail are, Avigayil and Abigal.

It is also the name of a female character in the bible and is said to be the wife of Nabal the Carmelite, whose life she rescues when David wants to kill him. After his death she goes on to become the third wife of David.

Later she has a son with David, whose name has been mentioned in the Hebrew of 2 Samuel 3:3 as Chileab, in the Septuagint as Daluyah, and also in the Chronicles as 1 3:1 as Daniel. Abigail was also a given name for a sister of David.

The name Abigail pronounced as Ab-ih-gail is a popular name of Hebrew origin. The name means Father's joy or Exalted Father; the name was also often used by the heads of nunneries and was popular among the Puritans in the sixteenth century.

In the Old Testament Abigail was King David's third wife and was famous as much for her wisdom as for her beauty. She referred to herself as David's maid and the name in later times was generally connoted as a lady's maid. The variants of the name are Abbey, Abigayle and Gail. Abigail Adams was the wife of John Adams the second President of the United States.

It's not real people. The woman who was supposed to have played the 'real' Dr. Abagail Tyler was an actress named Charlotte Milchard. I looked her up, and found a bio. These people who are telling you that this movie is NOT based on a true story are absolutely correct. Mo questions, case closed. And they are also correct on saying that no bio can be found for a Dr. Abagail Tyler, nor any info outside of the movie 'The Fourth Kind.' IT IS NOT REAL!
