  • "I just had a daughter 12/28/12 & named her Abby. Abby means "a father's joy". Her middle name is Noelle. Noelle which means "Christmas". So her name means, A father's joy @ Christmas. We wanted a name that was short & sweet & to the point. I hope she ends up liking her name." Jan. 30, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is also Abby, not Abigail, though it's hard for people to believe that. I have had to pull out my birth certificate or driver's license to prove it a time or two. People do spell it wrong all the time. And there are a ton of nicknames that come with it. I get the Abs and Ab nicknames like everyone else. Sidenote: Nothing good rhymes with Abby. I've been called Crabby Abby, Flabby Abby, Scabby Abby, Blabby Abby, etc. BUT, all that said, I love my name. It's refreshing to see more "just Abby, not Abigail's" around. Though my mom didn't want me to have the long version of my name, she does call me Abigail every once in a while. My name is Abby Marie and there are a handful of people who only call me Abigail Maria. Nicknames can be fun though. I'm 29 and when I was younger almost no one was named Abby. It's become a lot more popular recently. Sesame Street probably helps that. Anyway, it's a great name! :)" Jan. 25, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "We just had a baby girl and named her Abigail but call her Abbie so she can go by either when she's older. Abigail in the boardroom, Abbie to her friends and family, whatever she feels like. Although at the moment, she gets Abby Cadaby (from Seseme Street) and Abs alot. I think it's a gorgeous name and we don't know any other Abby's so I think it's fairly unique without being too unusual (so hopefully no name teasing). And we loved the meaning!"

  • "My 5 week old daughters name is Abby. Not Abigail, just Abby. We actually combined our mothers names (Amy and Debbie) to make Abby and her middle name is Dee-Anne, our grandmothers names (Dee-Dee and Suzanne) and made Dee-Anne. So my daughters name is very special. I just thought Abby is such a cute name, especially with the hidden meanings behind it!" Dec. 7, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "No Abigail here either, just Abby, short and sweet! I am 29 and have grown much closer to my name throughout the years. I had to suffer through the "abs of steel" years in my early teens, which somehow branched into a thousand nicknames. I now embrace my name and love it. For me it's always been unique as not many people in my age bracket share it. My parents were all about the shortened condensed version of names and now that I am creating a family of my own, I am as well. I have always been very grateful that I was not named Abigail, as it reminds me a 70 year old woman. Besides I could never imagine wanting to be called Gail. Often times people take the liberty in calling me Abigail and it really depends on how much I like the person if I correct them or not ;)" May. 17, 2011: Report as inappropriate

I like Abby because I've climbed the "corporate ladder", as it were, and have never felt that my name felt too childish or young to be taken seriously.

However, now my name is so popular that I hear moms my own age calling "Abby" out to their little toddlers in every public place that I go. I wouldn't like my name so much if I were one "Abby" among of dozens of them in my school." May. 14, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "heyy , my name is abby c too! haha , one of the first questions i get asked about my name is if that is my real name. and yes, it is. my parents decided not too call me Abigail, cause they liked just Abby better. And no one every knows how to spell it. But I love my name .. I am the only Abby in my school and its been that way for as long as Ive been alive, and Im in grade 10. So, i <3 abbys" May. 1, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am an Abby, and no, I am not an Abigail. My mother named me Abby Clare because my two grandmothers are Avis and Bernice--A and B, to get Abby--and because she loves the name. My parents tried very hard to have a child, but not until my mother decided to name her baby Abby Clare was I conceived. Coincidental, no? I have only known one other Abby my whole life, but I have met other people with the same name. For a while I didn't like my name, but when my mom told me it means 'source of joy', I decided I liked it. Also, the way my boyfriend says it makes it sound so beautiful... even if I lose him, I still love the way it sounds. I just don't like it when people name their dogs Abby. It's not a dog name. That's just a teeny bit insulting. But cute... I suppose. *shrugs*" Mar. 26, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Abby, and like previous posters I've had the problem of people assuming my name is Abigail. I've always liked Abby better than Abigail. When I was growing up, it was very uncommon (born in 1975) and I liked that about my name. However,I do find that the name comes with a very strong connotation of "sweetness". And as I get older, I'm not sure that it has really grown up along with me. I'm very careful when I name my own children...that I am not pinning them with a name that won't grow with them. Overall, I would recommend the name. It has a good sound to it and is a classic. But it has become very common lately." Jan. 14, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "I agree with the others...my name is Abby, and it isn't even short for Abigail, but people used to call me that and it drove me nuts as well! but they don't really do that anymore, so it's okay!" Nov. 13, 2005: Report as inappropriate
