I got the T-r-a-c-y spelling and I love my name! Still get called Trace or Tray by friends & family." Mar. 12, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Tracey just like it looks ..I was born in 1965 and it seems to me a lot of Tracey/ Tracy were born then. I have always been told that Tracey with a E is a girls name and Tracy without the E is a Boys way ..I believe this because ever Boy / Guy I know spells it Tracy .. But either way I love my name it?s a Pretty strong Name .and a lot of my friends call me Trace and I like that as well .. I always thought it would be nice to meet and marry a guy with the last name Tracy ..😂😂" Jan. 31, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "Greetings, my name TRACY, born 1990. I actually love my name growing up, and even now. I like when my teachers called me TRACE. I, like many other TRACYs, hate when it's spelled with an E. I hardly hardly ever met any tracys. In fact, I don't know any Tracys in my acquaintances/friends/family list. I'm the only one and I like that! When I do hear that someone has my name, they're usually oldies though." Dec. 5, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love my name, Tracy. It goes perfectly with the best middle name, Ann, which is simple ans sweet. Tracy Ann. I know so many people who hate their own name and I can't imagine that. I was born in 1973, after the big burst of Tracy's were born a few years earlier, but I grew up with one other Tracy, and now as an adult, I am the only Tracy I know. Surprisingly, I find in other comments that girls couldn't find personalized items with Tracey, but I found Tracey everywhere, never a Tracy on a pencil, cup, keychain, etc. Now, I don't see either." May. 29, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "I'm a Tracey, female, born mid-60s. There were always several other Tracy's in my classes growing up, but I was one of the very few to spell it with an e. As I've gotten older, it seems there are more people who assume it's spelled Tracey and far less who assume it's Tracy. And I know a lot more people now who spell it with an e than ever before. All very interesting. But at the end of the day, we all have a fabulous name regardless of the spelling." May. 4, 2015: Report as inappropriate

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

Friends call me Trace sometimes.I like my name but I think we should encourage a new generation of Tracy's now a lot of us are in our 40's!!! 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.

  • "Like others have said, I don't like fashionable names because they really date you. 90% of Traceys are between 45 and 60, so everybody knows how old you are without you telling them! If you're called Ann or Sarah nobody would have a clue. It also irritates me when people spell it Tracy." Jan. 1, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "I was born in the mid 1960's and called Tracey. I have never liked it and as I grew older hated it more. I agree with another comment that it is a fad name. I also changed my name by deed poll so that my middle name became my first name. One of the best things I ever did." May. 30, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "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

  • "I've always been neutral about the name Tracy. I was born in '79, and I don't remember any Tracys at any of the schools I've attended - not even variant spellings. My last name isn't common, either, so my full name is pretty unique in the US. I actually like it when baristas misspell it on a coffee cup - they often put Tracey or Traci. It's never been a common name, and I like that. I hardly ever come across any Tracys. Even at the height of its popularily in 1970, I don't think it was even that common. I almost never get any comments on my name. But once in college, a guy said he liked my name - it wasn't too common, but you've heard of it. What I don't like about Tracy is its lack of depth - it sounds like just a girly name, without the "weight" and class that I'd like. Our top 10 girls names these days are all classy old Hollywood or literary names, like Emily, Emma, Ava, Isabella, and Sophia. I think parents got tired of the faddish names of my generation, like Jennifer, and wanted the classic Old Hollywood sound of our currently popular names. I think the name Tracy suits me well, though." Nov. 9, 2017: Report as inappropriate
