It's an absolutely amazing name! Only I want to spell it as Ami

12/5/2022 12:48:30 AM

My 5yr old daughter's name is Amy. I found out yesterday from a strange woman that Amy is the name of a male fallen angel cast out of heaven and now of some second sphere. The information was disturbing to say the least

My Name Is Amy And I Love It Because Is My Name And No Other Amy Is Like Me.

11/26/2022 3:29:40 PM

My name is Amy. Amy Darleen'that is and I love my name. Most people don't know that Amy means beloved. When my parents had me they brought together two familys. My mom had three kids at the time and my dad had five kids. Altogether that makes nine kids including me. I am the littlest and sencie my name means beloved one every one thought it was perfact.

11/24/2022 4:10:42 PM

My husband insisted on the name Amy for our daughter, I wanted Amelia. She got my traditional middle name of May. I often have her called Amy May because Amy, Aimee seem quite common again. Now we just laugh that'she could marry a Mr Yam to have every combination of the 3 letters.

11/23/2022 11:05:00 AM

This is my name, and I was told that it means "beautiful smile," and every person I tell that to I'mediately tells me that It's a lovely name. I agree with everyone above; those who have this name know how difficult it can be to get non-indian people to pronounce your name correctly AND remember to keep saying it right. It's NAY-HA, not NEE-HA, NAY-A, or NY-HA. It's not that difficult to say, just imagine the "E" as an "A" instead. Other than that, I like my name!!

11/15/2022 2:42:02 PM

AMY Louise :) born december 2003 and i know loads of people called Amy my best friend is also called Amy Louise !!

10/31/2022 12:02:30 PM

I was born in 1983 and it must have been'the peak year for the name Amy. I think there were 10 Amy's in the 6th grade. I always had to go by Amy H. Fun thing is my best friend that I have known since elementary school is named Amy. We were always known as Amy 1 and Amy 2. It was fun to have such a easy name to spell and I like except when'trying to do a credit report. With a common first name and a popular last name (Anderson now)it can be confusing when you go to the doctors or other places that need ot know your name.

10/28/2022 5:52:02 AM

It's sooo common- don't you want a name that's more unique? gosh.. It's so over used...

10/14/2022 11:32:10 AM

10/2/2022 6:31:44 AM

They best I can describe my name is - sexy. It has a Y and an s. It's very unique. It's a classy name for classy ladies. I feel honored to have that name. I am my own person, unique, as this name is not commonly found. It's very feminine. To have this name comes with some responsibility. It's not for everyone.

10/1/2022 6:11:08 PM

I don't know any Amy who has ever'said they did not like their name, which is proof positive that It's a good, satisfying name. The name'seems to produces confident, self assured adults and to some extent keeps you feeling young since It's just a joyful, happy name!

9/28/2022 4:39:50 AM

Amy is such a beautiful name. It means beloved. Such a classic. Some celebrities with the name. Amy Adams, Amy Smart, Amy Lee, Amy Jo Johnson. I also knew a woman named Amy, she was very sweet.

i have a "friend" called amy and she's sooooo boring and smelly. she alsways goes around w horse shut all over her and she walks like a turtle

8/8/2022 1:11:24 PM

My sister is named Amy-Leigh, she gets called Aims, which gives the Amy part of the name an extra letter'so it is hardly a shortened version :) The only problem is that my name is Emily, and the two names are very similar, I get called Emi, so Emi and Amy tend to get mixed up alot.

5/18/2022 10:16:48 AM

I love the name Amy...i've hardly ever met anyone around here where we live that has the'same name. It's short and easy to say.

5/17/2022 2:09:00 PM

Although my name is Amy, people usually think that I am saying that my name is Mamie. Some people think that my name is short for Amelia, which it is not. I also get asked how to spell my name, which always puzzles me because Amy is such an easy name to spell. I guess people are unsure which Amy-the French Amy or the American Amy. My mother wanted to name me Tabitha or Bridget, but since Amy was much more popular in 1988 the RN in the delivery ward convinced my mother to name me Amy. I'much prefer my middle name (Suzannah), which is less cheerleader-ish and serious sounding.

I was born in 1991. Amy (middle name Aileen.) I can't say that I have hated my first name, but when I was younger, I sometimes wondered what it would be like to have a more unique name too.

8/18/2021 6:18:18 AM

This is a very uncommon name. I come from a spanish speaking family and had no problems with the pronunciation of my name until I decided to go to college in the US. In spanish "U" sounds like "oo" in moon. "ri" as in "reel" and "el" as letter "l". So it would be something like oo-ree-"l" as you might know the'sound of "r" in spanish is much stronger than in english. Americans pronounce my name like You're-"l"; It is kind of difficult for people to pronounce my name but I really like It'since it is very different and unusual.

7/6/2021 9:44:24 PM

We named our little girl Ava seven months ago.. Going into delivery, we still hadn't chosen a name-- Ava wasn't even on our radar, but as soon as I saw her, I said "she needs a name as beautiful and feminine as she is...I'm thinking Ava". My husband I'mediately agreed and loved it. We named her Ava Jude... I doubt I'll ever meet another "Ava Jude".
