So I was born in the late 80s when every second girl was called [name_f]Amy[/name_f]. But it just suddenly occurred to me how little it has been used in the last 10 years?
It still sounds fresh to my ears with the vowel sounds and soft “m” like the ever popular [name_f]Emma[/name_f], [name_f]Emme[/name_f], [name_f]Emi[/name_f] etc. and of course [name_f]Amaya[/name_f] is shooting up the charts along with [name_f]Maya[/name_f] and even [name_f]Aya[/name_f].
Our top girl name is [name_f]Emilia[/name_f] so we are obviously on that wave. But I suddenly found [name_f]Amy[/name_f] floating in my mind and I wondered how it might be received in this day and age?
Why the decrease in popularity do you think? Is it just too nineties now?
