Our daughters name is Abigail. We've called her Abby since birth but once she got old enough to start school, she'started calling he'self Abigail because there was another Abby in her class and I actually like Abigail even better! Her nicknames have been Abby, Abs, and Babs. Her dad and I call her Crabby Abby sometimes on her highly emotional days! :o)

Abigail Louise that goes by Abi. I stand by the camp that'supports Abi as the best way to spell Abi. At 20, I have finally found another Abigail that goes by Abi. it took awhile, but it happened! too many other Abbeys or Abbys or Abbies.

9/15/2022 10:25:54 AM

9/5/2022 11:32:58 PM

My name is Abigail, and when I was younger I didn't like it because most of my friends had newer and more common names like- alli, lexa, and so on...but now my name is really common and I love it! I am glad my parents named me for someone in the Bible.

9/1/2022 1:38:24 PM

7/14/2022 3:41:42 PM

It's my name too and It's great. It's often spelt incorrectly. i've had lot's of variations but it I find it amusing not frustrating and best of all my Grandma and Uncle always mispronounce it. It's taught me great patience and developed a good sense of humor (I hope). I love the meaning most of all.

7/1/2022 8:15:18 PM

My name is Abigail Faith, but I go by Abbey. I was the only "abbey" at my school.

I am due in 8 weeks, and we plan on naming our little girl Abigail - will likely use Abby for short until she can decide what she prefers to go by.

6/8/2022 8:36:54 AM

5/28/2022 6:14:42 PM

I have always loved this name but when I found out it was the number 8 most popular girls name, I knew I had to do something different. So my soon to be daughter's name will be Abygael Elaine. It seems almost celtic in the spelling and i haven't found it spelled that way anywhere else. Obviously, she will go by Abby. But this spelling is pronounced Abby- Gale. 2 Separate parts. Hope this helps!

5/20/2022 9:51:36 AM

3/22/2022 1:12:18 AM

My name is Abigail and I love it. I was named after the only women at the time of my birth that was the wife of a president and also the mother of one...pretty impressive, Abigail Adams. Since then Barbara Bush has joined Abigail Adams.

3/16/2022 10:42:00 AM

I named my golden retri'ver Abigail and call her Abby. She has recently been diagnosed with a large tumor on her heart and only has a couple months left to live. I love her with all of my heart and am considering naming my first child after her. I'm looking for some alternative spellings for Abigail, though. Any ideas???

2/27/2022 2:16:12 PM

I know a 10 - 11 year old girl called Abigail...most people would nickname "Abigail" as Abbie, but she has spelt it like Abi, but recently now spells it like Abii. Isn't that'so cool!!

2/26/2022 1:33:54 PM

A very pretty name, but incredibly trendy--think of how much it will date a woman in 40 or 50 years, when'the trend has long since ended. It will sound frumpy/dowdy to most people, much like Mabel, Gertrude, or Ethel do now (names that were wildly popular at one time, but I bet parents naming their daughters those names never thought about the future, when'the trend would end!). Someday we'll have old folks' homes filled with Abigails, Emmas and Madisons. Better to go with a name that hasn't had such an extreme spike in popularity recently.

2/15/2022 2:57:36 PM

I love this name my sister has this name and like her the name is so unique and beautiful her second name is hazel which i think is also a unique choice,I would recommend this name i might even call my baby abigail(if i have one).

2/14/2022 9:34:30 PM

My youngest daughter is named Abigail and she is definitely an Abigail and not an Abby. She is very formidable, independent and persistant and the name'suits her beautifully.

1/22/2022 5:21:36 AM

I love the name Abigail especially whwn int's my name. Not many people mispronounce it and you get very cool nicknames from the name. Some people misspell it but so what. I was so glad when my parents named me Abigail. It's such a cool name

1/3/2022 1:00:36 PM

My name is Abigail and I actually like it very much, except NOBODY spells it right. They spell it Abbygale and Abigale and Abegail and UGHH lol. My nickname is Abby. It's so cute!!

12/10/2021 1:34:48 AM

My name's Abigial! People call me Abby, though. I'm looking for a nicer nickname, but my friend knows me by Abiwhale or Abisnail. :\

11/27/2021 10:42:54 AM

My name is Abigail also but I often go by Abbie. The "ie" often'throws people off and they usually spell it with a y. I think the ie makes my name unique and I like it. i only wish that more people would spell it like that! Its funny that Abigail means "The Father rejoices" because I was born on my grandpa's birthday and he deffinately rejoiced!

11/25/2021 4:37:30 PM

My name is Abigail and I love my name! Also, did anyone know that Abigail means "Joy of the father?" I have met some other people with that name. In fact, I even have a cousin with my name too! I like to be called Abby. But my dad calls me Gabriella sometimes and Gabby because Gabriella is the other name he picked for me. My mom chose Abigail. And I know a MAN named Abigail! how weird is that?! LOL :D

11/13/2021 9:04:48 AM

My daughter Abigail was just born on dec 22, 08 she was 10 weeks early. Her daddy named her because of its meaning, "my fathe's joy". She is already daddy's little girl! I cannot wait until she comes home! We are so in love with her!

My name is Abigail and I really love it! specially because it has a beautiful meaning. At first my mom wants to named me "Leslie" but that's a very common name there are many Leslie's in our neighborhood, so I'm glad my mother change her mind and named me "Abigail".

10/19/2021 1:31:12 AM

This is my name and although I like it, people almost always call me some kind of variant of it like katrina or corinna, which gets pretty annoying! I find that even after I correct people they still get it wrong. It is also a very difficult name to abbreviate. But I do get compliments on it quite often, so I am glad it is my name!

8/15/2021 4:05:06 PM

I love this name if I have another daughter I will name her this I have Ansleigh and Adam already my name is Addie and dad is Adam, we really like A names
