  • "My name is Sinthia Sunshine ive always loved my name and thought it was cool being the mon and the sun. Ive always hated being called cindy and when i was young i would ignore anyone who called me that. Any one who's close to me calls me Sin and i love it. Ive also had the nicknames sinsane or sinsae. I've never met anyone with the same spelling as mine but have known alot of Cindy's. Born in 1976 i was named after a speech therapist named cynthia hamond who saved my sister Shilo from being institutionalized by "doctors". Just one more reason I've always been pround to say my name is Sinthia !!!" May. 13, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love my name 'Cynthia' . I always picture it as a ramdom, cute name . But it does bother me when they spell 'Cinthia' with an I and not a Y . It can be spelled in diffrent ways if you think the way 'Cynthia' is spelled is wrong and I respet that. But I feel more comfortable like just being it 'Cynthia' . But if your looking for cute baby girl names and find this one cute but don' t like the way it's spelled then whatever is your choice ." Aug. 20, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Cynthia, I dislike the name Cindy. As a older teenager I started objecting to being called Cindy. It didn?t sound like an adult name and with a ?baby face? I thought it time it would make me seem more adult (LOL). This was also the early ?70?s and the beginning of the woman?s movement and it seemed that all the playboy bunnies and such had the Cindi, Cindy, and other ?y? and ?ie? ending names. Nicknames are Cyn and Cynth. My pet peeve is introducing myself (or being introduced) as Cynthia, and people immediately saying: ?Hi Cindy?. But at 61 I am no longer energized to make an issue of it." Mar. 14, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am another Cynthia Ann. I agree about the raggedy Cindy Ann thing, bad combo. I tend to get called Cin and enjoy the play on Sin. I also revered Artemis completely of my own design as a child, staring up at the moon saying "she's chasing me, Diana is chasing me!" when I was little...and here she is again. I believe my parents had some seeds planted and knew the origin of naming me. I am always thankful that Virgins and Mothers during birth are protected by our ilk. Please realize apollo-gizing is an artform that is no longer Greek alone. Best, your sister in nomination." Feb. 11, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "I don't have to worry about people spelling my name wrong because it already is spelled wrong. It's Cintia but pronounced Cynthia. It does get annoying though, but the fact that it is spelled so differently is always a topic of conversation. I really like the name and would have hated having a very common and boring one.

Also, the word Cynthia is used in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, in reference to the moon. I've always thought that was neat." Feb. 26, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "When I was growing up, I never really like my name: "Cynthia." However, after I did some research. I learned that the name originate from Greece! I came across many meanings for Cynthia. 1. The name was derived from Mount Cynthus where the goddess Artmeis (the moon) and Apollo was born 2. Cynthia also meant women of Kynthos, island where the gods were born (some say it was Delos) After finding this information, I had a greater appreciation for having the name Cynthia. There is meaning behind it and plus it is NOT a common name either. I am not of fan of people shortening my name. However, I do accept being called Cyn, Cynth, or Cynthi. I absolutely HATED being called Cyndi because to me it sound very corny. I have came across different variations of saying my name in different languanges. For instance, Spanish is Cynthia is Cyntia (h is slient) and in French pronounce my name is Cyncha because there is no "th" sound in the French language (sidenote: my family speaks French-Kreyol, so everyone calls me "Cyncha"). However, I never heard my pronounce in Greek. I would love to hear my name's correct pronunciation in the language in which it originated from." Jan. 4, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "I adopted my daughter in February 2014. She was born Cynthia Rose-Marie. I was not too keen on the name to begin with. My ex mother in law is Cindy, so that was not going to be her name. I asked her biological mother how attached she was to the name and she hated it. She said that the baby's father picked the name. I changed it. My daughter is Lanie Grace. If you saw her, you would think that this name is much more fitting. If her bio mother was really attached to it, I would have respected that and called her Cinny. Not Cindy. Thankfully we agreed. I mean no offense to any of the lovely ladies with the name Cynthia or Cindy. It just was not for my child. I hope she likes the name change when she is older. I believe she will. If not, her father and I can look into a formal name change for her is that is what she desires." Apr. 3, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "For me, being named Cynthia has been a nightmare. My family never intended to use it, and always called me Cindy. Maybe because I was a serious kid, I've never liked my name because it sounded silly to me. Born in 1960, I changed the spelling to Cyndi in high school. No help there. Friends called me Sidney or Cid, so I started introducing myself that way in a new city. Thirty years later, everyone from my adult life calls me Cid, but my poor family hates the name. As a result, they refuse to use it. My advice: If you name a girl Cynthia, call her by that name and insist on it!" Jan. 25, 2014: Report as inappropriate

Went to college and there were 4 in my dorm so '46 must have been a big year as well. My parents and aunts and uncles always called me Cynthia, I was Cynthia Jane when I was in trouble,Cynthia Jane to my southern relatives (and still am), Cindy in high school.

Cynthia sounds very sophisticated but I have always felt it was just too old fashioned sounding to fit me.

But as a kid, I felt more comfortable with the nickname Cyndi. Then, as a young woman, I felt iCyndi was too little-girl sounding, & people never remembered me as a Cyndi; so after some trial & error, I settled on the nickname Cyd, which I really feel comfortable with & which people remember much better than they ever did Cyndi. I've come to appreciate the beauty, femininity, & uniqueness of the Greek-inspired name Cynthia; there isn't a harsh consonant in it, & yet it connotes both strength & sensuality."

  • "To me, my name always seemed out of date--a 1950s name, not old enough to be truly "classic," but not new enough to be original or stylish. (I was born in the 70s.) Still, I do think it's kind of pretty, in a way, and I have gotten compliments on it. People often get it wrong though--I get Sylvia, Christina, and many others, as well as the dreaded "Cindy," which I hate." Feb. 10, 2007: Report as inappropriate
