"Debbie is the best name EVER invented. HANDS DOWN. True Debbies know this to be self evident. The name roles of the lips, feeling like little butterfly kisses punctuated with a voiced bilabial stop. Also, I once told my mom I didn't like my name, and she got REALLY mad." Aug. 22, 2018:
"Social Security lists over 770,000 women with the name Debbie just in the 1950s." Dec. 29, 2016:

"My name is Debra but I?ve always gone by Debbie. I?m 32, and I?ve always hated my name. Kind of wish I had talked my parents into changing it when I was younger LOL. My middle name is Marie so Debra Marie sounds fine but I also hate being called Debra. I was only called that when in trouble. Just such a boring name. My siblings got much better names. Makes me feel like an elderly lady, on the plus side I guess it?ll be fitting when I?m older." Feb. 18, 2020:
"My adopted parents named me Debbie and I always hated it. I always thought it was a stupid name.
My real parents named me Cynthia, but that is not me.
I changed my name to Erin which mean 'peace' and I love it." Apr. 6, 2007:

"My name is Debbie and I hate it. I'm sick of people calling me Deborah or assuming it's Deborah when Debbie is my name. It's on my passport, birth certificate, drivers license..........." Jan. 22, 2011:
"My name's Debbie, Debbie Jean, which I think is cool together. I never really liked it, always wondered why a parent would call their daughter Debbie, it seems meaningless. I think I prefer it spelt Debi, not that I do that, but it does seem better. It suits me, im quite shy and quiet i guess, and i dont know anyone else with the same name" Apr. 14, 2010:
"My name is Debbie Lee. I have always hated my name. My sisters have beautiful, original names. When I was in school many years ago there were always anywhere from 2 to 6 (!) girls named Debbie or one of its variations in every class. My name is actually Debbie. Not Deborah or Debra or Deb. I have had to prove it legally over the years. Crazy." Jan. 11, 2010:
"my name is deborah, but i go by debbie, and i also think its really annoying when people call me deb! also, i am the only person i know in this generation of children that has the name debbie. i've met tons of adults with the name debbie, just no kids." Jul. 24, 2009:
"I like my name, but hate all the variations and different spellings. I get called Deb a lot, even when I introduce myself as Debbie. The Deb thing is very annoying, people just assume you are ok with it." Sep. 19, 2008:
"I like my name, its not great or bad, just a name. I hate that people always call me Deb, even after I introduce myself as Debbie." Sep. 18, 2008:
"my parents called me Debbie-Lee and i havent met anyone with the same name yet! i grant you its a bit unusual but hasnt been a problem and people do remember you, and i have grown to quite like it." Jan. 10, 2008:
"I don't like this name. I always think of a red-haired girl of the 50's with braces and freckles when I think of this name and not of a modern, stylish girl." Apr. 25, 2007:
