"I am also a Bambi.Sixty two years ago mum discovered half an hour after my brother was born she was having another baby which she named Susan Bambi.
I was called Susan until around 2 1/2 years old but my twin couldn't get his tongue around Susan but could say Bambi & that's what my family all call me, it's shortened to Bam.
When I was at school kids would laugh at my name & I decided the become Sue aged 13.
My kids & their families have only known me as Sue.
Now I use Susan but yes it does get complicated being 4 names,I always know who is talking to me when they call me the name they know me as.
High five to all the Bambi's" Oct. 1, 2018:
"People who make negative comments about this name seem really concerned with policing women's sexual freedom. I think it says more about the psychological hangups of the commentators than it does about the name, which is cute and fun to say. I also see no reason it has to be for one gender or the other."

"My name is Bambi and the dumb, blonde, bimbo stereotype seems to be mostly dead at this point, at least with 18-25 year old college students, which is awesome! I grew up hearing a bunch of rotten,sexist, and demeaning comments, mostly from older men and sometimes from people my age. Overall my experience with my name has been fine. People remember it once they realize I'm not actually Brandy. And it works well for certain occupations: bartender, ski instructor, waitress, animation adviser, and more but I do have to work harder to be taken seriously. I love that I break the stereotype. I am a university professor and definitely am not a dumb, blonde, bimbo. :-D" Mar. 3, 2017:
"I was born n 79 the most popular yrs of the name Bambi. I am Bambi Marie Spade. Red on the head and quick with my words sure I was teased I'd just laugh too. I haven't met one other person as for that I am humbly thankful mom dad bambi. MO" Jul. 12, 2015:

"I am 32 and my name is Bambi. I love it, I haven't met another one, and it's a great as an ice breaker! Children will always find something to make fun of though I have to say I don't recall any issues.

"Ive never met a bambi but i love it! people keep saying its a stripper name but i've never heard of it being that either, its pretty and unique but i wouldn't name a boy bambi even though the deer was a boy, and also the name bambi was around way before the movie, its still pretty and it wasn't created especially for the Walt Disney Movie. But if you're planning to call your kid bambi, DO IT! its such a cute name!" Oct. 8, 2012:

"I like the name Bambi. I used to date a girl named Bambi and despite all the stereotypes she wasn't a stripper or an airhead. I do kind of wonder though why Walt Disney named the little deer in the movie Bambi, since he was a boy and Bambi is definitely a girl's name." Oct. 3, 2010:

"I am 30yrs old and was blessed with the name of Bambi when I was born. My mother told me the real definition of 'Bambi' is 'Gods Greatest Miracle of Life'. I was in ICU for 3 days after I was born so this is why my parents named me this. To all you who wouldn't dare name your child Bambi...think of the real definition and not your opinion becasue I am sure I could make fun of your name somehow!" Mar. 31, 2010:
"well im pregnant and if its a girl i want to name her bambi its very pretty and it reminds me of something beautiful and peaceful and for the people like my mother that say its a hooker name... thats not their real names so i dont care.. haha i love that name:)" Sep. 13, 2009:

"My little sister is named Bambi Carol. Bambi is a cute name when you are 16, however she is 48 now and she uses her middle name now. She stopped using since she was around 25. Our family's name also starts with 'B' and an employer suggested that her name had too many bouncing bees in it so she started using her middle name, she still does even though her married name starts with an 'E'." Jun. 10, 2009:
"My name isn't Bambi, but one of my old boyfriends used to call me it when we first met. I'm brunette and often have a red tinge to it in sunlight, which is what I figured was the similarity between me and the Disney character but he said it was everything about me. My shyness, my long somewhat awkward legs, my doe-brown eyes, my hair and how I'm very much a klutz. Whilst our relationship never lasted, the nickname did and all my friends call me it without thinking. I get a few people turning their heads when a friend shouts out for me, but you get used to it. I think the nickname is brilliant and whilst I wouldn't like it as my real name, I love how it can be used in a sweet way." Apr. 27, 2009:
"As a child, being named Bambi was very hard..but now at 45, its great! everyone thinks its so cute. and yes there are alwsys the dumb jokes but at least its pretty original." Mar. 30, 2009:

"My kitten is named Bambi! I never would have thought of it, but that's what her previous owner called her. I've never met a girl named Bambi, but I think it's adorable. I'm sorry to hear everyone's been teased about it so much. I can't imagine how hard it is for you when I get teased just for calling my cat Bambi. They're just jealous they all have common, boring names." Sep. 24, 2008:

"Bambi was a manipulative blue eyed black haired self proclaimed maltese princess. Her father was a bogan and her sister was a ranga, she was a lying waste of space, hope she grew out of it but doubt it. The lies that you so freely told with that sociopath smile on that trash dirty mouth of yours even at such a young age. I hope you got what you deserved but people like you never do its always us the arseholes that plod along dont want drama just want to have a content life and to help out our families we get the raw end. I am sick of bad people not being punished for their wrongdoings. You will get caught out one day you liar, you harlot and you usurper. maybe you went back to malta to claim the throne Ha! More like the western suburbs queen of the bogans and hanging off of some leb guy that treats you the way you deserve like you treat so many people like dirt." Jul. 6, 2014:
"Please people, don't name your little girls "Bambi." Don't name them "DEER" either. They'll get teased to no end and will more than likely grow up to SERIOUSLY resent you." Feb. 2, 2013:
"I just want to know when Bambi went from being a male deer's name to being a woman's name. It seems to me to be a shortened form of "bambino," the Italian word for baby. But why is it only associated with females now?" Mar. 19, 2010:
"I think if your name is Bambi, it is your destiny to be a stripper. Not just any stripper, but a stripper who provides additional services in the back room." Nov. 6, 2009:
"This is a horrible, horrible, girl name. Anyone who names a girl this is a trailer trah moron." Feb. 19, 2006:
"Has anyone noticed that in the show everyone refers to, Bambi was a male? How did this become a female name?" Aug. 22, 2005:
""i have never heard of anybody named bambi besides the show"
Visit a strip club and you'll hear of more . I'd never name a daughter this in a million years." Jul. 27, 2005:

"My Daughter is named Bambi Joy she's almost 2 years old. We all love it and only had positive comments, if she wants to use Joy when she's adult then that's fine. Bambi is the only name that suited her and it's just normal to us now. It's only cause it's a Disney film that people might think it's crazy but then it is seen as normal to use other Disney names , don't understand it." Nov. 9, 2016:
"She's been modeling ever since she was very very prteeen prteeen like Diane (aka Amber).Thanks heaven for little girls, they grow in the most delightful way." Jun. 16, 2013:

"my name is BAMBI.i am 42 now and have gotten used to the comments...LOTS OF OLDER LADIES seem to love the name...the name doesnt bother me anymore...IN HIGHSCHOOL IT WAS PURE TORTURE..since adulthood not so bad but very hard to get away with anything...not like there is too many other BAMBI'S in the medical field.so its hard to get away with anything ..and kinda hard to be taken seriously with a name like that.." Apr. 27, 2010:
"my name is Bambi. I am 48 years old. I tried to go by my middle name when i moved in middle school so the kids wouldn't tease me. That was until my father found out!! Anyway, i don't mind it. I would agree that the strippers have given it a bad name even though I am blonde I do have big brown eyes, that's why my mom gave me this name." Dec. 1, 2009:
"I'm a 50 year old woman named Bambi. I feel like my boss probably doesn't take me too seriously and I certainly don't feel professional. It can be rough when you're trying to make appointments or when you are called in the drs. waiting room. Everyone's head turns quickly and you know they're thinking "huh?". No one ever forgets my name at least but I do feel somewhat silly with that name at my age. Okay for a little one but we do grow up and older." Aug. 14, 2008:

"My name is Bambi, and yes I know the "original" Bambi was a male deer. And no I am not a blonde hair, blue eyed stripper. Actually I am half mexican, 24, with brown hair/eyes...and I am a nurse. I have only met a few other Bambi', and have heard all the jokes. Famous one.."Where's Thumper?". But I love the name..very unique!!" Apr. 29, 2006:
