  • "I've always liked my name, Pamela June. The year I turned 40 I left a marriage, lost a job of 18 years and moved to another city where I only knew one person. I'd always loved the name Pamela and decided it was a good time to introduce myself as such. I was a little surprised that so many people immediately switched it to Pam. Whatever. I figured it was because I am a mere 5'1". It was somewhat comforting to find so many Pamelas have had the same experience. I love it that my nieces and nephews call me Aunt Pammy. I also love Jamela Pune. One interesting thing about our name is that it is the title of what is considered to be one of the first English novels, Pamela, or Virtue Rewarded, by Samuel Richardson, published in 1740."

  • "I'm a Pamela. I was born in 1964 near the height of the popularity of the name. Like others here I like my full name best but everyone shortens it to Pam and I think it sounds a bit stuck up to insist on Pamela when people are being friendly by shortening it. As a child I was called Pammy and my father still calls me "Pamela Bear". He says it was a play on Panda Bear. My mother-in-law speaks Spanish and calls me Pamelita which is cute I think. For a brief time I was called "Ella" in middle school to distinguish me from the other Pam in our class. It didn't stick when I moved to high school. I met a lot of Pamela's but none less than about 40 years old or so. For a" Feb. 6, 2020: Report as inappropriate

I heard many nicknames for my name as a kid and most of the time heard "your name rhymes with everything!" And it does; spam, ham, etc. And I used to have to listen to when my name was called because, Pam and Sam and Anne and Dan, can sound a like (when called out loud). I've heard of the Pamela Anderson jokes as a kid but I do like my name. It's different and easy for kids so say (which is just a, PAM!).

  • "My mother is the only one who can get away with calling me Pammy. I prefer the full syllabic pronounciation, Pamela. Though I spell my name, Pamala, or sometimes Pamallah, in honor of all those who are dying in the Middle East right now in a senseless occupation/war, Iraqis, Afghans and US soldiers alike. I do this because pamala came from the Persian, with the meaning, sweet nectar, amrita, and pristine waterfall. Consider the Pamirs, a range in the Pakistani Himalayas, with lots of melting glaciers and therefore lots of waterfalls." Apr. 3, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Pamela and I have never liked it. I was born in the U.S. in 1970 and I'm told that it was popular when I was born, though all the Pamelas I have met are at least 10 years older than me. I always regarded it as the homely girls name (someone slightly overweight with glasses or something like that). Strange because I am neither overweight or wear glasses! I go by Pam, as 'Pamela' seems to formal. I'm occasionally called 'Pammy' but only by longtime friends I've known since grade school. One good thing about the name is that the spelling and pronunciation are pretty standard. It's not like 'Katelyn' with literally 20 different spellings. Also, it's not at all popular so if you name your daughter Pamela, she will probably be the only one with this name in her class (unlike others... Emily, Madison, et al)."
