"I love the name "Judy" or "Judith." It is easy to pronounce and pleasant. It means "praised." Nicknames for Judith are Jude and Judy. It's not a boring name and easy for people to remember. I highly recommend that people not name a baby an odd name that is hard to spell and pronounce like Isla." Jul. 10, 2021:

"I live in the UK and my name's Judy. I'm 43 and I don't know any other people called Judy who are my age, although do know 4 who are in their seventies or over.
When I was younger I wasn't keen on my name, but I love it know. I'm rarely called Judy by my family, though. It's usually Ju, Jude, Joobs, or JuJu. When I was little I was often called Jubilee, Jubag, Jubaggers or Juey. I quite like having an unusual name." Jul. 9, 2020:

"This is my name, I am 36 and have always had mixed feelings about my name... I was always the only young person I knew with this name. I have an aunt on both my mother and father?s side named Judy, so that was it! I hated it for YEARS, but came to love it a long time ago, because it has actually become rare, therefore unique. I now have it tattooed on me, no haters, I love it!" Feb. 3, 2019:
"My name is Judith. Professionally Judith, family and friends Judy. I have always liked both names. I was born in 1939. My parents told me that Ella Fitzgerald sang a song entitled "Judy"that they loved and that is how I was named. I read that she originally sang the song at a competition when she was 16 years old in 1933. My father was also thinking about naming me Leighlani Lee but thank goodness Judith Marilyn won out."

"I too am just Judy because Judith sounds so stiff and formal and that for sure isn't me. LOL. I'm fun-loving and always joking. As far as pronunciation, when I was a child, my younger cousin couldn't say Judy so it came out Gudy....Luckily that didn't stick....." Sep. 24, 2017:
"It's my name. Yes, very often people spell it with an I, even though I have told them it's a y. I've been told it's cute, energetic, happy but never lovely, beautiful or even nice. I had met only a few women named Judy until 5 years ago when I started volunteer work. Now I know 5 doing the same." Mar. 29, 2016:
"My name is Judith, but I almost always go by Judy. Only my Mum and my Husband called me Judith, but now they died and I'm Judy for everyone. I think it fits me.
