"I am Brandy Jo. I loved my first name Brandy a lot. People normally want to spell It Brandi. I normally just smile and correct them. I did have a hard time with Brandy Jo.

"We adopted a Brandy when she was 3 and renamed her Brenda, figuring she could still go as Brandy for a nickname, but have a more sensible real name should she want it. She wasn't far in school before she dropped the name Brandy." Aug. 12, 2013:
"This is my first name (with a "y") and I honestly hate it. Perhaps the negative connotations are regional, but growing up I was always made fun of for it. Slams like "were your parents drunk when they named you?" "hey, whiskey!" and snide remarks about it being either a stripper name or better suited for a dog. I'm a well-educated and successful but I know my name makes an impression. Perhaps if I lived a different lifestyle or in a another area of the country it wouldn't bother me, but I truly wish I could change my name. In fact, fear of hurting my parents' feelings is the only reason I haven't. I've never told them my dislike of the name (no reason to, I'd never intentionally hurt or insult someone)." Aug. 26, 2011:

"I named my daughter Brandy. I think it sounds pretty and pleasant. The familes make little nicknames like brandy wine, but not any different than any one of us with common names. Of course she?s had a few ?bullies? make fun of her name in school. Which may lead to why she prefers to go by her middle name." Aug. 10, 2021:
"Not exactly the right forum for this, but I am a guy named Brandy. Born in 1964, so well before the name gained popularity for girls. And about 8 years before that Looking Glass song came out, which is probably why the named spiked in popularity in the mid 70's. All in all, I haven't minded the name. It serves its purpose. People remember a guy named Brandy. And, as with many uncommon names, people don't have a whole lot of preconceptions about those bearing it." Aug. 7, 2021:
"My name is Brandy and I have had a mixed experience with the name. When I was younger I was teased and called names like whiskey, vodka, Jack Daniels, and so on. It could be a lot worse considering all the things kids make fun of each other for. As an OR nurse i had a surgeon tell me that my name is not usually a name to be taken seriously. Surgeons can be so blunt and tactless sometimes. I just laughed and told him how i used to be called various alcoholic names when i eas youger. Now I am 38 and I like my name. Coincidentally, my best friend is also named Brandy." Mar. 18, 2011:
"I like my name. It is spelled Brandy....and I had never met anyone with that name until I got older. The only irritation about the name is that for some reason everyone mistook it for Brenda or Randy- now come on....how do you get those names outta Brandy?" Nov. 21, 2009:
"My name is Brandie and I liked how my mom was not original with the y and the end. I must say my name has grown on me, it is a known name but not common amongst my area which is a good thing to me...I actually have only met two Brandy's in my life and they were spelled the original way..." Jun. 11, 2009:
"my name is Brandy and after having this name for nearly 28 years... its grown on me I guess. I also have a cousin (by marriage) with the same name..same spelling..same age. Yeah, that sucked growing up! I think its a nice name and you dont really hear of younger people with this name very often.. But yes, I've had the song 'Brandy, your a fine girl..what a good wife you will be' sang to me on more than one occasion.. but, its a good song so its alright by me. And, yes.. I am a fine girl.. and I'm a good wife!" Sep. 18, 2008:
"I knew someone named Brandy Rita it made me feel awkward for the poor kid. Brandy Rita and Brandy Margaret just give you bad thoughts, you know?" Jul. 26, 2007:
"I love my name, I wouldn't want to be anything but Brandy. I have met many Brandi, Brandie, Brandey and so on, but not many who have the original spelling. I love being the original. I would never tell someone not to name their beautiful daughter Brandy. It has been much fun..especially with the liquor thing. Guys love talking about me being named after such an expensive and exclusive liquor. I was actually named after the song, but I still let some of them call me Whiskey. It is fun." Apr. 25, 2007:
"Please don't name your daughter after an alcoholic beverage. Thank you." Nov. 4, 2006:
"I like having this name because it's not that popular, but there are always little jokes about alcohol, a 50s song, and "Mandy," which was originally titles Brandy. Regardless, I have had to mature into it, because when I was a child I didn't like my name at all. As for other people with my name, I've met just a few, and their names have never been spelt like mine, which I suppose makes me more original, and that's how I like it. :-)" Jun. 29, 2006:
"yes many people do but its okay sometimes but it is when it comes down to the name calling just like other people they call me a stripper and then ask me when we ca do stuff but thats not what it means" Feb. 21, 2006:
