  • "I love this name. My daughter's name is Carrie. She was named after my mother in law Carrie and they both love their name. She was the only Carrie in her school and didn't have to share her name with anyone which she loved." Sep. 17, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love, love, love the name Carrie. When I think of a woman with the name Carrie, the image that comes to mind is a beautiful, independent, strong woman with good feelings for others and strong family values. The one who brings people together but does not hesitate, she tells it like it is. Lovely name.... It is my four year old daughters name. I also have a seven year old Caroline. Love Carrie and Caroline together....Very classy names" Aug. 3, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "I have met a few other Carries, most of whom were lovely people. I was named for my mother's twin sister, Carolyn. Mother didn't care for the name Carole, so she named me Carrie. I've always associated my name with Laura Ingall's sweet, meek younger sister in the Little House books and TV series. :)" Apr. 23, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "many spell it wrong but rarely anyone pronounces it wrong, sometimes they mistake me as kerry or karen but other than that I like it :)) I didn't meet many others with the same name, it's unique" Sep. 24, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love my name but always get asked to spell it especially when waiting at a restaurant. I tell them it all sounds the same so they can spell it xefry as long as they pronounce it Carrie when it's my turn! I've often been called by my first and last name together, Carrie Allen as if it were like Sue Ellen but I like it. I love being called Care.

Nov. 15, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Carrie, and I love it. If you are a Carrie you should get used to people rhyming your name with hairy, scary, or worse very scary hairy.... But other than that it's a sweet gentle name. You'll get care, or carebear for a nickname. And Carrie looks lovely written in cursive, especially if you just squiggle the 'arri' I would never want a different name." Sep. 20, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "Carrie Ann is my name and I love it! I went through a phase when younger when I hated it...but what kid doesn't? I was named for my great grandmother, and I really do love my name now. Went through school with not one other Carrie. It was great! It's becoming more popular now, which is cool. I too get people thinking it's Kerry (two different names people, not just the pronunciation! :), or on the phone, I get Carol, Karen, Terry even!" May. 26, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love my name. I only know one other person with that name, but it has another added on (Carrie Josephine)so she goes by CJ. People due have a tendency to try and spell it with a K though." May. 22, 2009: Report as inappropriate

May. 12, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love my name, Carrie. I actually think it is kind of fun to have to spell your name for people all the time. When someone asks what my name is so they can write it down I always just say: "Carrie, C-a-r-r-i-e" then continue with the rest of my name. It makes me smile." Mar. 19, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Carrie Sue. I just go by Carrie, which I like, but many people (I've always lived in the South) want to call me Carrie Sue, which I don't care for. I love the "traditional" spelling of this name and don't really like any of the more trendy ways to spell it: Keri, Kari, Kerri, etc. When I first meet people, they think I'm saying Terri, Karen, or something similar and that gets annoying." Apr. 4, 2008: Report as inappropriate

I thought that if I ever had twin girls I would have named them Carrie and Callie though." Jan. 25, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "This is our daughters name and I think it is beautiful. I agree with the first poster "a real Carrie is a rare and beatiful thing" The name goes great with our last name. And also goes great with her married name. I don't associate the name with the movie at all." Dec. 14, 2005: Report as inappropriate

  • "Yeah, i love my name. But it does have that rhymer tendency, and that dratted book, lol. But it's a good name. You see Karis and Kerris and Careys, but a real Carrie (not a diminuitive) is a rare and beautiful thing (no, i am not modest)" Aug. 30, 2005: Report as inappropriate

  • "I like my name. It rhymes with a lot of stuff so I was called hairy carrie and scary carrie, but I am mostly called Care Bear which is alright." Jul. 6, 2005: Report as inappropriate

  • "My mother's name is Carrie, and while I never found it offensive, she has often complained about it and even went so far as to acquire an unrelated nickname. Her complaints were: the book/movie, the word "carry", the hard C sound, and the fact that her estranged father named her. It's probably that last complaint that seals it; I bet that for most people Carrie is a fine name." Apr. 13, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Carrie. It is welsh for love,although its not spelt the welsh way. I dont really like it. I would rather another name. I rather people calling me Carrie-Lou.

  • "Ilove the name Carrie. My aunt's names are Carrie, Carolyn and Caroline." Feb. 18, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "I think my name's alright. I've met 3 other Carrie's in my life, one being my neighbor. I didn't really like her. She ruined it for me, but I met this really great person named Jennyfer, and I've wanted the name ever since. I think my names alright though." Jun. 9, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "My birth name is Carole, which I've never really liked...so I changed it to Carrie...I love it, but it is rarely spelled correctly! There are so many ways to spell it stating with a C and then it gets mixed up with Kerry...I've found many people who can't seem to hear the difference between Ca (as in cat)and Ke(as in kept)...all in all I am happy with it...it has a soft sound, is fun to write and people respond well to it." Jan. 27, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "The only problem with the name is that there are so many variations that it was nearly impossible to find a pencil, bookbag, anything with my name spelled correctly. For a kid, that was pretty disappointing. In addition, the movie "Carrie" came out when I was a kid, which triggered the schoolground nickname "Scary Carrie.""
