I like my name. It is rarely spelled correctly. It is spelled "Candance" often, or people expect its "Candice". Its rare enough to be unique, but common enough that I run into someone at least once a year with the'same name. But hardly anyone spells it with an 'a'. And I prefer it that way.

I went by Candi when I was younger, but hate that nickname. Just like othe's Candaces, my name is misspelled Candance. In high school, I was teased and called candy-ass. My dad calls me Candan, which I love.

11/23/2023 03:58:34

My name's spelled "Candess" but It's pronounced the'same as "Candace." I absolutely love my name & the way It's spelled because I find it to be very unique. I'm also called "Candi."

My name is Candace.I love the name. Its pretty and it has a beautiful meaning. I am 25 and I have only 2 people with my name.

I'm a Candis. It's basically the product of a father who adored Candace Bergen and wasn't a native English speaker, so everything needed to be very phonetically spelled! In the Candace v. Candice debate, I think Candace wins out; but Candis beats them both! When I was young, I hated it, but when I noticed how irritating is was for girls who shared their name with so many othe's at school, I began to appreciate It's uniqueness. It never bothe's me if it is spelled with an -ace or -ice; can't really expect people to know -is off the bat, right❤️ If the mistake makes sense, It's fine; if It's just ridiculous, like -us or -ess, that person just seems horribly illiterate and It's annoying. Hardly ever meet other Candace/Candis/Candices and I like it that way. In college, I used to go by my middle name until my pan African studies professor refused, saying he will call me by my "African name" (Candace is Ethiopian in origin); hilarious. I HATE CANDY! My grandfather and endeared elderly people in my life called me Candy Bar. Only they could get away with that one : )

I love my name. There are not too many people with this name in the area I live in. I always have people spell it wrong. There is never anything with my name on it that is spelled correctly. Things always had Candice on them instead of Candace.

02/14/2023 03:42:54

My name is Candace. When I was younger I went by Candy then changed the'spelling to Candie, but now that I am older prefer Candace. People always miss spell my name Candis, Candice, Candance, I simply tell them "I am an ace, not an ice, and I don't dance". I do like my name now, but didn't when I was younger.

I am Candace. It's often spelled incorrectly as Candance or Candice. I find this very annoying. I was called Candy as a child but do not like it because It'sounds unintelligent. Also,my last name was Cain which made it worse.

Our 4 yr old is named Candace and I love the fact that it is not very common yet still familiar. My DH picked it out and at first I wasn't thrilled with it. Now, I think it is a beautiful name and coudn't imagine our daughter with any other name.

10/18/2022 00:28:12

My name is Candace and i think that Candace is the most prettiest name ever!

09/07/2022 22:16:40

I am 48 years old and I love my name. I think it is beautiful. But I am mostly refered to as Candy.

06/14/2022 00:57:00

Often when I give my name they say it back to sound like 'Kansas' Rather annoying. Mispelled as Candance a lot too.

06/11/2022 19:52:48

I love the name Candace, It is the name of a Queen in the Bible and also has the meaning "Flowing White" I gave my daughter this name before she was born. She just happens to have a white streak of hair. Perfect don't you think❤️

04/28/2022 19:03:18

My name is Candace, but spelled really unconventionally. I haven't always been happy with it, but most of the time I really enjoy my name. I think It'sounds womanly and sophisticated. This name reached its peak in popularity about ten years before I was born, so I have NEVER met a Candace who was younger than me (I'm 18), which I think is really great!

03/05/2022 23:04:30

Yes, as a child I hated having a named that made me stand out. Now that my personality has caught up to my name I love having it! Why not settle for Karen❤️ ...because why settle❤️

11/25/2021 20:17:06

I agree with the other comments posted. Candace is my name and very often get mail addressed to "Candance" or "Candis", or "Candice". I like It'spelled with an "a" the best. I feel like a Candace. Good job Mom and Dad!

09/27/2021 18:57:00

Just left this comment on the "Candice" page: My name is spelled "Candace" which I am sure is the "original" way (since It's in the 1611 AD KJV Bible that way, lol) .... but I realize people spell names a lot of different ways. I also have been called CandaNce ... where people get that extra N I have no clue ... but I am 56 years old, I use Candace as a "business letter" name ... I do like it ... I think it is rather elegant and sophisticated and very UNlike the'shortened form, Candy ... HOWEVER, having said that, I don't get why most Candaces/Candices do NOT want to be called Candy ... i've been Candy all my life and it keeps me young! I LIKE being called Candy instead of Candace .. I definitely PREFER being called Candy over Candace. If I go to a new doctor or dentist, I fill out the forms Candace (Candy) so that they know that is what I prefer. Even so, Candace definitely comes in handy when I want to appear "serious" such as a business letter/email."

My name is Khandis.... a very unique way to spell it, but none the less i am a Candace, Candice, Kandis, etc. I love my name and I think the name in general is very beautiful and eloquent. Growing up i've experience called Kansas, which really urked my nerves! But anyways big ups to all the Candace, Candice, Khandis, Kandis, Candis, Candance, etc in the world.
