The name Amy rocks! It's a cute name and its nice and short. Although It's common, I don't meet a lot of people with the'same name as me.

05/18/2023 03:48:04

My friend Amy can be very sketchy yet she is really smart so when she is wrong and i am right i like to rub it in. She is also very innocent and she does not get in trouble but overall Amy is a very good name for a very perfect person.

05/16/2023 02:43:18

i love my name, although i didnt when i was younger, im 30 now, but when i was younger my sisters rebecca and samantha could always find things with their names on on holidays and places we visited,they never done anything Amy... now i have the same problem with my 6 year old Louise.. but i love my name now...

05/03/2023 19:04:10

my sister is Amy... I think its a ok name.. I think it's too short plus I think all little girls should have a longer name so she can have a nick-name. However... my sister has the same middle name as me so I call her Amy May... i think it sounds better than "Amy"

05/03/2023 17:36:00

I'm 15 and like i have 3 friends with the'same name! garr...It's too common for me...thats why i want to name my kids like october or sophi something different!

04/28/2023 13:34:44

I like my name, Amy! At 32, it is cute and youthful! Although, I can't stand the variations of spelling that people are using nowadays - I actually have had people ask me how I spell my name - it drives me crazy!

04/22/2023 07:59:22

My name is Amy, and I'm okay with it. On one hand, everyone's familiar with it, It's classic, It's easy to pronounce, you don't really get made fun of, and there aren't really any major negative connotations associated with it. However, sometimes I get a little annoyed with how common it is, especially among people my age. (I was born in 1993). In most social settings, work settings, etc. there are multiple Amys, so everyone always has to clarify "Amy Lee" or "Amy Jackson" or whatever. Also, if I hear someone yell "Amy!" when I'm out in public, I barely turn around anymore, because there are usually so many Amys around (Jamies, as well, and it can be hard to tell which name the person is saying).

04/13/2023 16:12:36

my name is Amy and i was born it '95. i love my name and i wouldn't change it. i have only one other person in my year at school (1200 girls) and she'spells it 'aimee' i feel very individual with my name, although it is popular worldwide. Also my surname is very rare. And i love amy winehouse and amy adams

04/01/2023 09:26:22

I love my name. When I was younger I didn't like it much because there was another girl in my class with the'same name. She and I are the only people that I know with this name. I couldn't imagine having any other name.

03/02/2023 22:55:50

My name's Amy, but luckily it Isn't such a common name in my country, I don't know anyone personally with the'same name. Also, It's got a meaning

03/02/2023 03:32:02

Here are a couple of thnigs I have done that'seem to help Have a home for certain items. I'd have my kids put all their sports items in a certain color plastic bin. Ditto, cub scouts thnigs. Also, they know that certain thnigs have to be packed and ready to go right by the door, so they can grab their thnigs as we rush out the door (we are always rushing). Lastly, compartmentalize thnigs. Choose what you want your kid to do and have them only do one or two actvities at a time. For example, my daughter may want to play basketball and do track, but she doesn't do them simultaneously in the'same chunk of time. She'll play basketball for 3 months, then she'll do track. The'same thing with my son. He takes Karate, has scouts and CCD. He can't do anything more than that, plus his homework, so he just doesn't do the activities after'school. After CCD is over for the year, he may be able to do something else.

02/27/2023 10:52:42

02/18/2023 15:16:42

Ithink I love my name so much because it is so short and it makes up for my 12 letter last name.

02/13/2023 10:22:32

My name is Aymee - pronounced the'same way, just spelled differently, and I wouldn't trade my name for the world. I am who I am.

02/03/2023 23:29:36

Well I dont think my name Amy even suits me. Well its actually Amy-Lea but yeah. I spell it Amie now, I really disagree on having this name. Like Amy 1970 said, its really lame. I know what she means about having TOO many Amy's in the world. I had 6 in my class, there were just too many!!!

01/30/2023 17:13:12

01/15/2023 11:37:20

I love my name! I don't meet many other people with the'same name as me, It's easy to spell, pronounce, and sign forms. The only trouble is that people give me nicknames that are longer than the name itself. Oh, and finding personalized coffee mugs and whatnot is VERY easy.

01/13/2023 12:18:22

My mom gave all 3 of my sisters long names so that when we are younger we can have nick-names and when we get older we can use our original names. Mine, is Amelia, my friends call me Amy. My younger sister, Galidiral ((off of Lord of the Rings)) we call her Ali, or Alison. Along with Emily, we call her Emma. Then there is Sarah, the oldest, we call her Sar. Anyways, hope i gave you a good idea about names... ~~amy~~

12/28/2022 10:08:10

My sisters name is Amy. When she was in school she had lots of others with the same name. Most people called her Monkeyy for short. She definatly suits the definition but shes a bit of a rebel herself. She gets into trouble constantly haha. Her middle name is Jade. I think this is a good combination :D

12/07/2022 15:06:46

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

12/05/2022 00:48:30

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

11/29/2022 19:54:20

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

11/26/2022 15:29:40

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 16:10:42

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

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 14:42:02

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

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 05:52:02

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

The name Amy truely rules. It's a very pretty and girly name, but also quite sophisticated. I love my name. ;)

10/02/2022 06:31:44

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.

10/01/2022 18:11:08

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!

09/28/2022 04:39:50

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.

08/08/2022 13:11:24

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.

05/18/2022 10:16:48

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.

05/17/2022 14:09:00

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.

03/23/2022 01:54:36

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.

08/18/2021 06:18:18

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.

07/06/2021 21:44:24

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".
