"My name is Brandi and I love it. My parents are divorced and my dad named me while he was drinking ?Brandy" The song brandy your a fine girl everyone says that it is my song." Dec. 12, 2019:
"Brandi Nicole born July 11 1983, this name was given to me by mother who loved the band. Thru the looking glass...the major hit was Brandi. Givem that my name was given to me during tne height of its popularity, I grew up with about 6 other Brandi's in my school career. I havent met anyone under the age of 25 or over the age of 40 with this name. This name will die it because it is considered a "fad" name. But still love that its mine. Fits me personality pretty well...hell I look like a Brandi lol" Apr. 16, 2019:
"I didn't really like it growing up, but have grown to like it. Born in 1964 and I always say I'm the original..as I have never met a Brandi older than myself. Never have to wear a name tag at our class reunion. Brandi Nemer-Mastain" Sep. 1, 2017:
"My name is Brandi, when I was younger I didn't really like it, and always wanted to go by my middle name "Michelle" but I've grown to really love it! I agree with a lot of you on here, people constantly spell it with a "y" most of the time they don't even ask "i" or "y" they just assume! I definitely prefer the "i" even though you can NEVER find products with Brand"i" on it! I've only met 2 or 3 others in my 28 years, which use to bug me but now I really like knowing my name is unique! (Loving) nicknames I've been called over the years: Brandywine, Brando, Randi, Bran muffin, Brand, and Brandi! you're a fine girl!" Jul. 20, 2016:
"My name is Brandy Valenda. I always liked the 'y' better as it was unique because more Brandy's are spelled with an 'i' I was born in 1974, my parents were artistic and devorced. I grew up with my single mother and an older sister Amber, and that name is also trashy according to Freakonomics. I hate my middle name. It's not even a name, just a made up name. I married an M.D and have two children with unique names. So I didn't follow the Freakonomic path I suppose." Sep. 30, 2013:
"My name is actually Brandilyn, but everyone calls me Brandi. I love Brandi, but don't care for Brandilyn. People ALWAYS spell my name wrong! And I don't understand why! Sometimes even if I say "With an I not a Y" before they write my name, they spell it with a Y. Whatever. I'm NOT an alcoholic drink." Apr. 30, 2012:
"My name is Brandi! I'll admit, I used to hate my name. But slowly it grew on me...and now I love it! It's unique and fun and not many people have it. I'm so glad it's spelled with an "i" and not a "y" though. Not only is i more uncommon and interesting, but brandy with a y is a liquor!" Mar. 9, 2010:
"My name is Brandi and people commonly spell it with a Y. I hate that. I am not a liquor. Even my birth father can not spell my name correctly. Hey you can't win em all. I love my name though." Feb. 17, 2009:
"Love it it's my name. My daddy named me.....and it beats Brandi w/ a Y any day" Aug. 29, 2007:
"I love the name even more than Brandy. My full name is Brandice and one of my friends is Candice. I'm Brandi and she's Candy! LOL. My BFF has a cooler name it's April Mae imagine having that name! I love April Mae more than any other name in the world. Bye. Brandice Clare" Jul. 26, 2007:

"My name is Brandi and I HATE IT. It sounds like a strippers name. The I makes it much worse, a Y would have been a little better. The only name that could be worse is Ginger. I would love to go by my middle name but I think I'm too old to make the change/switch easily." Dec. 11, 2008:

"My name is Brandi Michelle. I guess I have liked my name most of my life. People do often spell it with a y but I have to say most now a days ask me how I spell it. I was born in 1980 not 81 so maybe the extra yr says something." Jun. 17, 2019:
"My name is Brandi, I love it because it's unique and my mother gave it to me with a heart full of love. People need to realize it doesn't matter what is associated with the name, it's what you do, that matters. I am happy with my name because I make sure that everyone knows me as a kind and honorable person. Embrace the name,! and prove that a name is only what you make of it." Jul. 14, 2016:
"My name is Brandi and I have always loved the name. Mostly because when someone calls on "Brandi" I always know it's me. I have only met one other Brandi than me but she was about 20 years older than me. There is only one thing I hate about my name and it's that I can never find any products such as a keychain that have my name spelled correctly! I always find it with a "Y" at the end, not a "I"!" Oct. 7, 2013:
"My name is Brandi and I've always hated it. It's rare that I meet or see a Brandi on television who isn't trashy. Brandi is a stripper's name. According to the first Freakonomics book by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, the name "Brandy" is number 8 on the list which signifies low-educated parents. Read it, it's a good book." Feb. 22, 2012:
"My name is Brandi and I hated it growing up!
I have learned though to like it, it's different. My father named me after the song "Brandy, You're a fine girl" and the Brandy in question was a barmaid...guess what I grew up to be?? LOL..How prophetic!!" Jul. 17, 2009:
"Brandi with an I is soooo much better than brandy with a y!! I have never really liked the sound of it but the older I get the more it grows on me!" Jun. 18, 2008:
"My friends name is Brandi, we call her beaner or bean. I LOVE IT!!" Mar. 19, 2008:
"My name is brandi, I hate the popular meaning(burning wine or the liqur) I have found 3 more better ones. American-warm and comforting. Italian surname-Fiery beacon. other- Beacon of light which is the second most common one i have found." Dec. 21, 2006:
"it's my name and i hate it. i don't know why, i just hate the sound of it." Nov. 7, 2006:
"It is Mine and my best friends name. Every time someone Says our name we both answer. Some people ask if it's i or y. Other than my best friend i have met a few people that have the same name" Jul. 18, 2005:
