"My name is Becky not Rebecca and I like it. Everyone calls me Bec.That is fine too, I have been called worse!!LOL! Funny story about my name. In the fifth grade my teacher told me your name is Rebecca your are nicknamed Becky. I told her no, I am not Rebecca, just Becky. She said please go home today and ask your parents to send me your birth certificate and ask them if your name is Rebecca? Because it is! So I went home asked my Mom...Whatis my name, Mom?...she looked at me like I was a tad off that day and said, your name is Becky, you know your name? Are you okay? I asked, are you sure it is not Rebecca? She said why are you asking this? I had to tell that story...and yes, she got my birth certificate to take to school the next day. My teacher said how odd never have I met a PLAIN OLD BECKY that was not named Rebecca! So guess I was pretty old and plain in the 5th grade!I do have to say I like it when people call me Becca now. Born here in 1959!" Apr. 1, 2021:
"At first I didn?t like my name like I wanted it to be Ella or Ashley or those basic white girl names. I didn?t even think Becky was a popular name. But now I?m ok with it. People call me Bec for short. I?m chill with it. I?m the only person in my school right now that has the name Becky. It?s pretty nice. I don?t get mixed up lmao." May. 6, 2020:

"I think the name Becky alone is really cute not as a short form for rebbeca" Apr. 30, 2020:
"My real name is Becky. And I love it! And I have never met another Becky who's legal name was Becky. As far as it being a popular name in the olden Golden days I can go with that I'm often told I have an old soul at the rip ole age of 30. And My best friends are in the upper 50's and 60's. So oldie name Becky I think I wear it classy! 😉" Aug. 21, 2017:
