  • "I like being an Amy. It is rarely mispronounced and most people know how to spell it. It's only drawback is that it never sounded formal, I always wished it was short for something like Amelia so if I recieved something official it would have a more embelished feel. On a whole though, I think it's familiar without being common." Jan. 5, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Amy and I was born in 76. I really hated my name growing up. It was so common and boring. My dad's name was Jack and my mom wanted to name me Jaqueline, which would have been way more cool & unique. So even though I'm grown now and don't hate my name...I'm not really a fan." Oct. 27, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "Although my name is Amy, people usually think that I am saying that my name is Mamie. Some people think that my name is short for Amelia, which it is not. I also get asked how to spell my name, which always puzzles me because Amy is such an easy name to spell. I guess people are unsure which Amy-the French Amy or the American Amy. My mother wanted to name me Tabitha or Bridget, but since Amy was much more popular in 1976 the RN in the delivery ward convinced my mother to name me Amy. I much prefer my middle name (Suzannah), which is less cheerleader-ish and serious sounding." Apr. 17, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "Here are a couple of thnigs I have done that seem to help Have a home for certain items. I'd have my kids put all their sports items in a certain color plastic bin. Ditto, cub scouts thnigs. Also, they know that certain thnigs have to be packed and ready to go right by the door, so they can grab their thnigs as we rush out the door (we are always rushing). Lastly, compartmentalize thnigs. Choose what you want your kid to do and have them only do one or two actvities at a time. For example, my daughter may want to play basketball and do track, but she doesn't do them simultaneously in the same chunk of time. She'll play basketball for 3 months, then she'll do track. The same thing with my son. He takes Karate, has scouts and CCD. He can't do anything more than that, plus his homework, so he just doesn't do the activities after school. After CCD is over for the year, he may be able to do something else." Mar. 17, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Amy, and I'm okay with it. On one hand, everyone's familiar with it, it's classic, it's easy to pronounce, you don't really get made fun of, and there aren't really any major negative connotations associated with it. However, sometimes I get a little annoyed with how common it is, especially among people my age. (I was born in 1981). In most social settings, work settings, etc. there are multiple Amys, so everyone always has to clarify "Amy Lee" or "Amy Jackson" or whatever. Also, if I hear someone yell "Amy!" when I'm out in public, I barely turn around anymore, because there are usually so many Amys around (Jamies, as well, and it can be hard to tell which name the person is saying)."

  • "Those other comments must have come from people who didn't grow up in my part of the country. This is my name and I was born in 1974, and you can see from the chart that there were a zillion other Amys out there at that time. I always had other Amys around. I didn't like that it had to be paired with my last name or last initial when somebody was speaking to me. I lived in Central America for a while as an adult and this name was unheard of there, so nobody could pronounce it and I usually got Any (Annie) on their first try. Amy's a pretty name and it has a lovely meaning (beloved), but my parents just had bad luck on the timing." May. 13, 2006: Report as inappropriate
