"my name is Jeffery which is cool I go by Jeff and had the nick name Jeffy from many people and that was fine. The only bad part for me being named Jeffery is that in the second grade I had a teacher in a catholic school who told me I spelled my name wrong. In the early sixties you did not question. Now I have IDs with different spellings of my name. I will say the Army got my name right. Go 1/9 Cav" Sep. 1, 2017:

"My name is Jeffrey (although I go by Jef, with one F) and ever since I was a boy, I remember this Bill Cosby standup routine about an annoying kid on the airplane who drove him nuts, and how he had to listen to his mother snapping "Jeffrey! Jeffrey! Get back here!" all the time. He commented on how much he grew to hate the name Jeffrey after that and it was officiall ruined for me.
My fiance says she loves the name, and my friends all agree that I match the sensitive and intelligent legacy that the name has. The name means "peacemaker" and I have always been able to mediate arguments between people and "translate" what one party is really trying to say to another, so if you want your child to have those traits, you'd be doing them a service to name them Jeffrey."

"My son is Jeffrey ( born in April 1983), my brother in law is Jeffery born in 1958. My only complaint is that my son's had his name mispelled so many times (Jeffry, Jeffery) that it really makes me wish I had named him something different that didn't have a variation on spelling. Nobody messes up David." Nov. 27, 2007:
"This is my fiance's name and I love it. It is very masculine, attractive and athletic sounding. More people should name their sons Jeffrey." Dec. 6, 2006:
