  • "My name is Rebecca Jane. I was called Becky as a little girl, but grew to hate it as I got older. I prefer Rebecca, and think it suits me. Some people have referred to me as "Becca", which is okay I guess, but I think Becca can come off sort of "valley girl" (not to be offensive, this is just the idea "Becca" engenders in my mind. For whatever reason, I imagine gum popping and hair flipping with expensive sunglasses - not sure why though). I had a guy friend tell me once that "Becky" sounded like an old lady name, which is annoying when you're 23. I wish people wouldn't shorten my name at all, but they can't seem to help themselves. I, too, have noticed the frequent use of the name "Becky" in commercials over the past few years. It's like there's a new one every other month. Strange. :)" Apr. 15, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Rebecca Colleen. Everyone always calls me Becky and I love it! I read some of the comments and a lot of people might not like the name Becky because it?s ?childish? or ?immature? but I must say I believe it represents innocents not childness nor immaturity but that?s just me. Anyways everyone always miss spells my name, they either spell it like ?Beccy? or ?Bekky? which is really weird haha, one time I got a ?Decky? which was weird... I will respond to Becca and Beck also but my friends always tell me, "no your a Becky." I'm one of those girls that you could think up a million nicknames for but no one ever uses them which makes me sad cause sometime I do get bored of the same old 'Becky,' my friends don't even call me 'Beck.' Though one nickname I would love it if people used is R.C. I don?t know why but I just love that name?" Oct. 26, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "I'm Rebecca Ann. I think it's pretty. It sounds traditional and old fashioned to me. I'm not sure why, but people rarely say my name when they talk to me in a conversation, maybe because it seems too formal? If I go by Becky, people seem more comfortable calling me that."

  • "Another Rebecca here. I was Becky for most of my childhood, and there was another girl in my grade named Rebecca who went by the full version. Now (age 27) it's pretty evenly split between being called Rebecca and Becky, and I don't really have a preference. I'm happy with my name, but not passionate about it. Being a Rebecca proves you don't have to have an unusual name to have it misspelled - I get Rebbeca a lot, and once even got a letter addressed to "Beaky"!" Apr. 12, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "When I was pregnant with Rebecca I used to sit and make lists of names and the middle name too. Rebecca Anne, Rebecca Marie, etc. back then there were not tests to see if you were going to have a boy or girl. This year is special if our daughter Rebecca Jean had lived she would have been 50 years old this October. We called her Becky. She loved music collecting vinyls, reading and fashion. We had 22 years together. I have enjoyed reading all the comments from all who have the same name. It gives me joy knowing all of you are enjoying life and your given names. I wish you all good health and bright futures." Aug. 7, 2009: Report as inappropriate

When I was a toddler it was Becca. In school I was Becky, or Beck to some friends. (Also, in my graduating class of 720, there were only 3 Rebeccas. And I was born in 1983 near the peak of the name's popularity.) Now in the workplace, I'm Rebecca. If you knew me when, I'm Becky. I like the familiarity that that brings."

People tell me it fits. Personally I was never a fan of Becca. My close friends call me Beck." May. 8, 2008: Report as inappropriate
