Nicknames included Syd, squid, squidney, Syddi or cindy (for kids mainly) & a few other . I always have to say "sydney, like sydney austrailia" so people know how to pronounce it . All in all I love my name . It's very unique & I've not met alot of others (:" Apr. 19, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "My daughters name is Sydnee Brooke. I have always loved that name. Her nickname is Cindal. I thought about naming her Cindal after the cute little blonde girl from the Ewok movie" Feb. 24, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Sydney and I'm 14. I have a love hate relationship with my name. Part of me likes the uniqueness but another part of me hates it. I really really hate it when people call me Syd or spell my name with an I instead of a y. I know two Sydneys. One is a nice girl I met at a summer camp. The other is an obnoxious boy that's 3 years younger than me. I also hate it when people pronounce my name Cindy. It's annoying. It makes me feel bad when people say it's too masculine for a girl or that they feel bad for me because my name is a city. I like how the way the name looks when it's spelled with a y. Overall, the name is okay, but if you are planning to name your children this, prepare to have your child be bombarded with: books that use Sydney as a boy name, annoying nicknames, people trying to say it's a city name not a girls name, misspellings, and people saying it's too masculine and should only be a boy's name."

  • "my name is Sydney Olivia, which I think is very graceful and feminine and flows really well. Most people call me Syd, Squidney, and Miss Sydney, but I've had a few people call me So every once in a while, which I really like, but then people assume my name is Sophia! Hahaha. I love my name, and I've only known a handful of other people with th name. Some people call me Cindy or Shelby on accident, but it's gotten a lot better over the years, and people have gotten creative with the Australian brand nicknames (Melbourne, Aussie, etc.).

  • "My name is Sydney Tyler. I used to hate my middle name because I knew three Tylers already and they were all boys. I'm 13 now and I really appreciate the creativeness of it! It was a bit annoying when people called me Cindy or Syd. It was especially irritating to my father, who would tell people that called me Syd, "If it doesn't say it on the birth certificate, don't call her that!" A few years ago people started calling me Syd the Science Kid. That used to make me really mad. It was a little show on Disney. I'm able to call myself a straight-A student, so I understand why they call me that, but I hate science and I hate that nickname. If any of you name your kids Sydney (or however you choose to spell it), make sure to make sure it's okay that people call them nicknames like this so that they won't become stuck with it or get irritated by it. :)" Apr. 18, 2014: Report as inappropriate
