thoughts on Amy?

Thoughts on [name_f]Aimee[/name_f],[name_f]Amy[/name_f]…is it outdated? Have a small crush with it…

I am pretty neutral on this name. I don’t love it, I don’t hate it. It’s unexpected and still very feminine, so I would love to meet a little [name_f]Amy[/name_f]. I think it’s a great alternative to [name_f]Ava[/name_f] or [name_u]Avery[/name_u]. Definitely ready for a comeback!

I grew up with a lot of girls names [name_f]Amy[/name_f]. Along with [name_f]Laura[/name_f], [name_f]Claire[/name_f] etc. It’s nice but maybe a little outdated…could well be due a comeback!

love [name_f]Amy[/name_f], spell it [name_f]Amy[/name_f] though, dont make a kids life harder than it has to be.

also i’d consider a ‘full’ name just to give a child options and a name to grow into:

[name_f]Amelia[/name_f]/[name_f]Amelina[/name_f] are my favs since a lot of [name_f]Amy[/name_f] variations can end up having an -am sound as in ‘I am’ instead of -aim

I [name_f]Love[/name_f] it!! I think it is cute, classic and quite honestly refreshing! I have a friend with a two yo named [name_f]Amy[/name_f] and she is just so precious! [name_f]Love[/name_f] the meaning as well!

I think [name_f]Amy[/name_f] is an American Classic, it always makes me think of [name_f]Apple[/name_f] Pie and Ice Cream, poodle-skirts and those little triangular flag banners.
You crushing on it seems very natural to me… though I’m currently going through a “[name_f]Rosie[/name_f] the Riveter” fashion phase.
Personally I prefer names with a bit more length, especially as FN so I’d be more prone to [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] nn [name_f]Amy[/name_f]/[name_f]Aimee[/name_f].

I love the name [name_f]Amy[/name_f]! Sure, it was really popular around the 1970s, but I think it’s classic enough to work on a modern girl. There was a baby named [name_f]Amy[/name_f] on a recent TV show and I thought it was a sweet and slightly unexpected choice for her name.

I don’t really like the name, but I have a bad association with a nasty neighborhood girl from my childhood. I do think it’s a bit outdated, but the meaning is sweet. I just think it sounds a bit whiny, but that’s JMO.

I absolutely loved this name growing up!
It was a decade before my time in terms of being on top… but I loved it.
Go for it

I like it. I think of [name_m]Little[/name_m] Women, which keeps it from being Strictly Seventies for me. I

I dislike [name_f]Aimee[/name_f], though I have a cousin named that.

I like names that are short but complete. [name_f]Amy[/name_f] keeps good company with [name_f]Jane[/name_f], [name_f]Claire[/name_f], [name_f]Blythe[/name_f], [name_f]Ivy[/name_f], [name_f]Rose[/name_f]… names that are short but not nickname-ish. I’m always surprised that with the popularity of [name_f]Ava[/name_f] and up-tick of [name_f]Ivy[/name_f], [name_f]Amy[/name_f] gets no love. It feels less commonly-heard-on-children to me than [name_f]Zoe[/name_f] (I like [name_f]Zoe[/name_f], I’m just saying…) and as sweet as [name_f]Molly[/name_f] or [name_f]Mae[/name_f].

It’s not really stylish or anything though.

I do know one person who wants to have an [name_f]Amarantha[/name_f], [name_f]Amy[/name_f] for short. I thought that was not exactly my style, but striking.

I prefer the [name_f]Amy[/name_f] spelling.
I don’t really mind the name. It’s actually a name that doesn’t produce much of a response from me at all, kind of neutral. I know two '[name_f]Amy[/name_f]'s, both of whom are teenagers so I do view it as a somewhat outdated name

I love [name_f]Amy[/name_f], but my cousin is named [name_f]Aimee[/name_f]. It reminds me of [name_f]Amy[/name_f] from banana’s in pyjamas.

I used to think it was outdated but now I’ve met a little [name_f]Amy[/name_f] and it has colored my perception! I think it’s very sweet especially with the nickname [name_f]Mimi[/name_f].

As so often happens with names, my opinion on [name_f]Amy[/name_f] was totally changed by meeting an absolutely delightful girl with this name. Yes, it’s a little dated, but still falls firmly in the “short and sweet” category. I prefer [name_f]Amy[/name_f] as a nickname, and actually know another woman named [name_f]Amy[/name_f] whose legal name is [name_f]Amelia[/name_f]. It seems a bit too slight to stand on its own.

[name_f]Amy[/name_f], in theory, feels dated, but I think it’s the sort of name that delights anyways. I don’t think it needs to be a NN of a longer form name. I prefer the spelling [name_f]Amy[/name_f] because it is my aunt’s name…I understand the spelling of [name_f]Aimee[/name_f], but it just looks like it’s trying too hard. [name_f]Amy[/name_f] is a simple, happy name…it doesn’t need so many vowels!

I like it. It has plenty of history ([name_m]Little[/name_m] Women, [name_m]Little[/name_m] House on the [name_u]Prairie[/name_u]), a sweet and simple sound, and a beautiful meaning. I don’t think I would use it just because it’s a little too simple for me, though. It was also really really popular when I was a kid. But I’m quite certain this one will make a comeback, one day. [name_m]Even[/name_m] now, I would have a mild positive reaction to meeting a child named [name_f]Amy[/name_f]. It’s a pretty difficult name to hate!

I love [name_f]Amy[/name_f]! It’s so sweet and adorable.

[name_f]Amy[/name_f] seems a bit outdated to me.

I really love [name_f]Amy[/name_f]! It’s on my list for when I have a baby, though I doubt I’ll get to use it, since it’s also my younger sister’s name. It’s short and sweet, recognizable, and has a great meaning. Definitely ages well, and it’s not at all trendy, so a little [name_f]Amy[/name_f] wouldn’t have 6 others with the same name in her class. I think it’s beautiful.

I love seeing it paired with [name_f]Amelia[/name_f]. I agree that it just makes it so much sturdier.
