  • "My name is TRACY. And I don't like when people automatically spell my name with an e or ie. I love my name and in my small community I know of two other Tracy's but one name is spelled with an e and the other an ie. We're cool with each other. And we know that it's a special name for special, outstanding women." Jan. 2, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am a female TRACEY born in 1965. Growing up I hated that my name had an E. All the personalized things never had the E spelling. As I got older, I grew to appreciate the different spelling. I did however make sure that my children had traditional spellings of their names because I knew the frustration of having a name that no one could spell right. I have met many others male and female with a variety of spellings endings like ee, ie, I, iy, iey and even ye. I love the androgyny of the name, sales calls can easily be ended when a female answers the phone and says I am sorry, he's not here." Dec. 18, 2013: Report as inappropriate

I have met a lot of Tracy's, all spellings, in my age group." Nov. 9, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Tracie. I've always liked my name. I was born in 1981. I would have liked the Tracy spelling as well, though. I thought it would not be the 'Tracy" experience to have people spell their name other ways since Tracy is the standard spelling and mine is an "alternate". i didn't know this happened to Tracys as well with other people spelling it wrong. Trac has been fine as a nickname, though people usually just call me Tracie." Mar. 8, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "Tracy is my name; I constantly get asked to spell my name if I'm speaking to someone on the phone. It's OK, but since the male version of the name is spelled the same way, there can be some confusion on whether or not the individual is a male or a female. I've gotten mail for male enhancement products!!! :/ I was born in 1969, and I had a lot of classmates with the name Tracy. (Male and Female.)" Jun. 9, 2010: Report as inappropriate

Tracy is the only way it should be spelled. I LOVE my name! It's very pretty, and I'm really happy that it means "fighter" because that's who I am, a fighter! It's great that I'm the only Tracy in my grade, because it makes me feel unique and special. Though, there is a Stacey in my school, and we're good friends. So it gets annoying when somebody yells something like "acey" cause then we don't know who they're talking about. loL." Oct. 13, 2008: Report as inappropriate

May. 28, 2007: Report as inappropriate

It's a great name and has matured well (I am now 25) and is great in professional/academic settings, etc. I wasn't much of a fan when I was a kid - I always wanted something more "romantic" - haha.

  • "I hate my name, spelled Tracy, I absolutely loathe it. I've tried changing it slightly with the different spelling variations (ee, ie, i) but it's still the same name that I can't stand. I think the meaning of the name is very fitting to me, but the name itself is more of a boys name to me." Aug. 4, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "I was born in the 1960's and named Tracey. I have always disliked being given a 'fad' name. Even went as far as changing my name by deed poll to my middle name some years ago. Everyone I know was fine about it and if there were people who weren't I don't care. It was my choice and I am pleased I made the change." Jan. 5, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "I'm a guy Tracy born in 67, and it was tough growing with a girl's name. I changed to Trace to cope. People often wonder the nationality of "Trace" and are surprised when they learn my offical name is Tracy. I live in Germany where gender neutral names are illegal, so most Germans are quite surprised I have a girl's name. I tell them 20% of Tracys are guys, which they can't fathom. I haven't overcome the stigma of getting teased and beat up for this name, so I remain Trace." Oct. 10, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Tracy and I was born in 1992. I really haven't met many Tracy's that are around the same age as me. Because of this I never really enjoyed me. It always sounds old fashioned and dated to me. While most girls around me have names like Jessica, Jennifer, Taylor, Michelle, etc, I've always felt my name sounded out of place. And people are constantly spelling it wrong. Like Tracey, Tracie, Traci. It's really annoying." Sep. 9, 2011: Report as inappropriate
