"My name is Christine legally but I have been called Christy all my life and always will be. I was born in 1998 and named after the Christy TV series." Apr. 20, 2015:
"My name is Christy. People USUALLY assume that I just call myself Christy and it stands for something longer, but it is my full name. I was named after my Great Grandfather Chis, who died the same year I was born (1983). I knew quite a few Christy's growing up, but rarely any spelt the same. C-H-R-I-S-T-Y is the correct way of spelling this name I always say....forget all the K's and Kristie's and ending the name with an 'I'. :-)" Nov. 23, 2010:
"I wish I could be named Christy, but I was named Christine. Well it could be my nickname for short, but everyone thinks my name is too beautiful for a nickname. I think Christy is cuter than my name." Oct. 4, 2009:

"It is my name and I love it because it is sort of a unique spelling rather than Kristy. I love to see how people spell it when I just tell them without spelling it to them..it is rarely the correct way." Jan. 30, 2008:
"Christy has always been a classy name. My first daughter, Angelina, named everything she owned "Christy" until up about 3rd grade when she got tired of it. I've loved it since the day I heard it and I'm still growing strong with it. Maybe I'll name my next daughter Christy Anne." Aug. 27, 2007:

"My sister's name is also Christy, and I have always liked it. My mom's name is Christine and my name is Crystal, so, its keeping with the morph -kris too:}. My sis and I were born in 1987, and there's no special story behind it other then my dad saw it as a play off my mom's name. Other then that, I don't think Christy has ever met another Christy, spelled like her name at least, it seems rarer in Canada, then in the USA though." Oct. 6, 2006:

"Hi I am Christy. As a little girl I always wanted my name to be something else. I like my name now. I have not met any other Christy's. I also always get asked "what my real name is" and nobody knows how to spell it correctly. I like having a name that isn't heard too often." Jul. 27, 2014:
"Well of course it's an awsome name. Thats my name. Everyone always spells it wrong and I like correcting them. My name was from my dads whose name is Chris. Everytime my mom yells CHRISTY I go "dad she said your name first." lol But it's a fantastic name.. Name your kids that :)." Mar. 15, 2009:
"thats my name i dont care for it...but i mean it be weird if they called me whitney or tiffany,,...i guess christy fits me..." Oct. 14, 2007:
"While growing up, I often was asked if it was my real name or a nickname for Christine. I was born in the 40's, but met another Christy who became my best friend in the 60's. My name is often misspelled as there are several ways of spelling it. I have also received mail to Mr. because I understand that they "y" on the end used to signify being male." Dec. 9, 2005:
