"Here's a poem that I composed for my third grade class. The teacher loved it!
"My name is Nancy;
It's not very fancy.
I like my name;
I'm glad yours is not the same."" Jul. 28, 2011:
"I LOVE the name Nancy for a boy, people are way too closed minded when it comes to names - just because a particular name is more common for a girl doesn't mean that a boy would get teased for it if he had that name. I mean just look at names like Christy, Carrey and even Zoey - all of them are unisex names much more commonly given to girls, but have their own appeal when given to boys. Nancy is no exception. Thumbs up for Nancy!" Nov. 17, 2010:
"I know these days most Nancys people know about are girls, but in my opinion it has a very unique masculinity to it. I'd love to see Nancy more popularised as a male name - a good friend of mine is a lovely man named Nancy, and he's never teased or anything for it. I mean think about it, if "Yancy" and "Clancy" can be boys' names, there's no reason why "Nancy" can't be - it's only a one letter difference! Anyway, I love the name Nancy for a boy and I really hope it gets more recognition as a good male name." Oct. 27, 2010:
"My name is Nancy, and I love it. It's very feminine and sweet and not too popular, which is a good thing." May. 9, 2007:
"I love the name! My great great great grandfather was called nancy, and my great great grandfather, and my great grandfather, and my grandfather, and my father, and me, and my son, and my grandson, and my great grandson, and he and his wife are expecting a baby boy, and he will be called nancy soon. I hope you find my family inspiring. nancy c. namalot" Dec. 15, 2005:
"my son is called nancy. He is 13 years old. He has the most friends I've ever seen a young boy have. They chase him home and even play dodgeball with him by chuckng up apples and bricks to his treehouse. I think it's a very masculine name. Yours, Clancy.G.Bellend" Dec. 9, 2005:

"Boy or girl no to Nancy - When my kids are being negative I tell them,"Stop being a negative Nancy." That and other reasons this name is more Negative now. I wouldn't want to do that to any child." Apr. 23, 2018:
"Enough of these unisex names, we should be able to identify a person's gender based on their name. It would just make things so much easier." Jun. 7, 2013:
"I want a long version of "nancy" for a boy.
nancy has a ring to it i love it but it's just not for me, nancy boy is a slang now maybe thats why its dropped so low in popularity." Aug. 1, 2011:
"Although, born with the name Nancy...honestly, I've never liked it. The name has no flare. To me, the name Nancy sounds too ole'fashion and there's nothing unique about the name. The spelling and pronounciation has never been a problem; overall, people get it correct on the first try. No offense, to those of you out there who bear the name, Nancy ...I mean no offense; these are my personal thoughts that I've decided to share with the world. The name does not and has not, ever, done a thing for me; except, want to change it! Nancy Ciuzio, Ponchatoula, LA" Mar. 4, 2007:
"Although, born with the name, Nancy...honestly, I've never liked the name. The name has always sounded old fashion and to my ear, there's no flare when you say or hear it. The spelling and the pronounciation has never been a problem and overall when said for the first time, everyone get's it correct. The name is not unique enough for me! No offense, to those of you out there who also bear this name; these are words spoken from my inner most personal thoughts that I decided to share with the world to read." Mar. 1, 2007:
"How about naming the next one Sally! Come on, really don't do this to your kid he'll hate you for it." Dec. 28, 2006:
"Way too feminine. You're asking for your boy to get teased if you name him Nancy." Jul. 27, 2005:

"It was hard growing up being told I had a ?old lady name? it was never a walk in the park but I enjoy being different more than I hate being Nancy" Mar. 28, 2020:
"I was named Nancy Elaine and have never liked either quite frankly. I wish I had been named Elizabeth after my mom. I can't imagine giving the name to a boy, though. The negative connotations here in the US and the teasing he would get should be reason enough not to do it." Jul. 21, 2017:

"In the UK, Nancy is viewed as a name for an old aunt. If a bloke was called Nancy here, he'd be ridiculed, even though it wasn't his choice in the first place.
I don't like my name, but have got used to it as I got older, had the p*** taken outta me when I was growing up.
It's a cultural issue, names "acceptable" in one country, aren't in another....." Mar. 13, 2009:
"I think it's fabulous to be named Nancy. A name has what you bring to it. Like James Brown, for instance. It's a simple, common name, but it immediately brings to mind the Godfather of Soul. My name is classic and old fashioned. I find it charming. It's immediately pronounceable but not very common among people my age(24). People don't forget my name easily. I love being a Nancy."
