"My name is Cassidy (after the Grateful Dead song) and I love it. When I was in elementary school I hated that it tied me to an "old people band", but I have since grown to love every aspect of it. There is something that feels a bit masculine about the name, and that also contributed to my lesser affection towards it as a young kid. Now I'm a senior in high school and I am proud of my name. I was always jealous of the more common feminine names like "Anna", "Eva", or "Zoey", but those names now sound a bit generic and I am someone who needs to be reminded regularly of my own uniqueness. I am a bit soft spoken, so I have always assumed that people just cannot hear me fully, but I have gotten mistaken for "Jessie", "Cassie", and even "Kathrine" or "Karen". If you are careful to use diction, especially on the C and Ss, there will be no trouble. I have never had a nickname. I did wish to have one when I was younger, but Cassie felt uncomfortably feminine. Caddy was a nice alternative." Oct. 14, 2013:
"My name is Cassidy, I'm 18 and I love my name. My parents named me after the Grateful Dead song. If I was a boy, my name would be Casey Rain. I've always kinda wished that was my name but I like Cassidy. =)" Jun. 22, 2011:

"I love the name Cassidy. Cassidy is my last name and I have 2 sisters and no brothers to carry the name on so my sisters and I always said who ever has a girl first will get to name the baby Cassidy. Well my middle sister beat me and her daughter got this awesome name. I was jealous. Cassidy is now 7 and it just fits her perfectly. We call her Sassy Cassidy because she is a cute blonde sassy little girl. My family just loves the name." Feb. 25, 2010:
"My mom thought she picked a name that nobody could ever tease me with. The day I was born, my uncle walked in and said, "Hey! It's Hopalong Cassidy!" She also wanted to call me 'Cassie', but as I grew, she never thought the nickname fit me. Anyways, I love my name. I'm so happy with it, and I always have been. And sorry, but 'Cassady' looks terrible. The 'i' adds cuteness and femininity to the spelling." Feb. 23, 2010:
