"My name is Candy. I was born in 1966. I was always asked if i had some candy when i was younger. People usually always remember my name. I know a few people with the name Candace that go by Candy.

"My name is Candy. I was born December of 1973. I love my name because it's not very common. It does however have positives and negatives that go along with having it as my given name. Kids can be cruel growing up and you get asked to prove your name by showing your drivers license. Now that I'm an adult I get people singing songs about candy and compliments. I wouldn't change my name for anything." Feb. 11, 2015:
"I met a young lady in Ocala, Florida. Her name is Candy. Never did find out her last name. We were at a pavilion by water, and I wish to find her again. This was back in the late 70's. We were in the water feeding fish with the mussels in the water. The music was: Joy to the World, by Three Dog Night. If I remember right, it was called: Johnson's Beach. Maybe Candy will remember me. My name is Thomas." Sep. 4, 2014:
"My name is Candy and I hate that people assume it's short for Candice/ Candace. It's just C-A-N-D-Y. I LOVE my name! I don't know anyone else named Candy." Jul. 20, 2008:
"My name is candy and i was born in 1993. At first i didn't really like my name mostly because of a song that came out when i was little, "I want candy" everyone used to tease.

"Absolutely dreadful name. First thing comes to mind is the cheap Dollar Store hard candies, second is strippers. I mean really...Candy?" Jul. 18, 2011:
"As a nickname for Candice/Candace, it's fine, but by itself it doesn't work. By itself, it sounds like pure white trash / stripper / pornstar. Sorry." May. 28, 2009:

"My name is Candy and I'm so glad..My father named me!my last name fits it perfectly too but wont say it here..nobody ever forgets it either..I'm a tall beautiful Cherokee and am really sweet and spicy as any good candy should be!!💋💋👅👅" Apr. 4, 2021:
"My name is Candy. I've been told that my name is pretty/unique...by the older demographic. Sure, I've had my fair share of rodeos-delinquents telling me that my name reminds them of a stripper. Does it hurt me? A little, but that's okay because my name is unique and heck, I even have a song named after me. Ever heard of the bop, "I want Candy"? If not, look it up. It's an oldie but a goodie. All jokes aside, I don't really mind the jabs about my name and how people fawn over how it's spelt exactly the same way as the treat. It comes with the territory and people will easily remember it. I've only met one other Kandi in my life and she's a well established figure from where I'm from...so I guess that's alright?"
