  • "My Name is Tammy. I love my name! Recently it has been used as the names of charactors in various sit com's and movies. So I am guessing it is gaining in popularity once more. I was named after the Debbie Renolds song "Tammy's in love" and all of the Tammy movies. The most recent movie Tammy...not such a great rep for the namesake ( I am definetly NOT white trash. ) I have only personally met one other Tammy in my life, but she spelled her name differently than I do. Overall as a petiet woman I feel it suits me well. It's not pretencious and is kind of cute sounding. And I personally like the name I was given." Jan. 24, 2018: Report as inappropriate
