"I definitely think it is too cutsie for a middle aged woman. I am 39 and I think it sounds like a child's name and it isn't short for anything so I must be called Mindy. I was also named after Work and Mindy, so I've heard them all. I don't know where Mork is and I've never looked for him!!!" Dec. 5, 2017:
"My name is actually mEndy, but in the south it is pronounced just like Mindy. I was in middle school during the Mork and Mindy show. There were times when I threatened to punch the next person who asked "Where"s Mork?" or said "NA-NU NA-NU" I think my name is way too cutsey for a middle-aged woman." Apr. 30, 2006:

"I was 6 years old when Mork and Mindy came out. Growing up, I was bombarded with the "Where's Mork?" jokes, usually by creepy older men. It got old very quick. Sometimes even today, in 2021, I still get asked that question and I still feel like punching the old farts doing the asking, in the face. I think Mindy is a perfect name for a little girl or an adult entertainer but when your pushing 50..... At this point, I just go by my last name." Jun. 9, 2021:
"I'm named Mindy for my grandmother, who was named Minnie. My parents (accurately, IMO) thought they were updating my name. I was born in late 1964, when a lot of girls names seemed to end in an "ee" sound." Oct. 17, 2020:
"My name is Mindy and here in the south people call me Mandy, Cindy, or Wendy. Finally I gave up and answered to anything ending in -ndy. It was annoying with the Mork and Mindy jokes of ?where is Mork? I always answered with ?Ihe?s on Ork, of course. My husband and I are collectively as Mork and Mindy," Jan. 31, 2020:
"My given name is Mindy and when I was growing up, born in 1955, there were no other Mindys around. When the Mork and Mindy tv show came out it seems everyone was naming their girls Mindy" Feb. 15, 2011:
"LOL, I hate the Mork and Mindy comments. My name is Mindy and that joke is so old!!! I went off on someone in St. Louis once for like 20 minutes about how I killed and butchered up Mork. By the time I stepped off the soap box the guy was like I guess you get that a lot huh? I have always loved my name and my mom named me after Mork and Mindy. I'm just thankful I was a girl and didn't have to live with the name Mork..." May. 28, 2009:
"i have i really good friend named mindy that i absolutely adore, and the name suits her, but i just dont like it all that much. its a fine name but there r other much better names!:)" Dec. 1, 2008:
"My name is Mindy. I'm 27. My parents named me after Mork & Mindy. Not because they liked the show really, but my mom really liked the name Mindy when she heard it on there. I get asked by people all the time "Where's Mork??". It's really annoying. I remember watching Mork & Mindy on Nick at Nite and thought it was stupid. Anyway, I like my name, except for when people do that stupid joke with it." Oct. 7, 2008:
"I too used to not care for my name, mostly because everyone thinks I am a Melinda as well. I'm just Mindy... also, everyone spells it incorrectly. As an adult, I love my name." Nov. 11, 2007:
"I like the name but always think of Mork when I hear it. I think the show ruined a good name." Aug. 28, 2006:
"My name is ok but whenever i am at church my friend's name is lyndsay and it souds like whoever is saying lyndsay sounds like they are actually saying mindy and it gets confusing after a while but i guess you kind of grow into it!" Jul. 12, 2006:
"I like my name because usually in a crowd it is unique. However i hate when people call me Mandy or ask me if it is short for anything. Plus all of those Mork and Mindy jokes. Mindy 22" Aug. 1, 2005:
