I actually spell mine Cayce... anyway, I like the name okay, but I hate that It's a unisex name. I wish I had a girls-only name.

This is my name. I didn't like it when I was a kid particularly when'that movie Grease came out. But today compared to some of the names some of my friends and my son's friends are stuck with - I think It's just fine!:) I like being called "Sandi" with an I not a Y.

I love love love my name. It has character and it Isn't nearly as over'sed as so many names are. If I had a quarter for every Jessica, or Amanda or Sarah while I was growing up, I'd be very rich. Casey has spunk, and sass. Plus, I am Irish by heritage and it means the brave one in old gaelic. A girl named Casey has guts.

05/17/2023 15:27:28

Spelling it anyother way than 'Casey' is for losers.

05/03/2023 04:57:46

This is the most beautiful name I had never thought of, until I named my daughter Jacqueline. The girl is beautiful and sweet. She likes her full name - Jacqueline though we most of the time call her Jackie with a Swahili pronounciation from Kenya, where she was born. What a beautiful name, especially in Nairobi.

my name is casey and im 15. i think casey is one of the few names where It'sounds great as a girl, or boys name. i think It'suits me perfectly though, and its not too common yet.

11/14/2022 03:26:02

This is my name and I have enjoyed it :) My original name was suppossed to be kaleb, but my parents decided to start a tradition of ending all of their childrens first names with an "n". My older brothe's names: Aaron and Steven, and then my little sisters name, Corrin. I sometimes get surprised when people correctly spell or pronounce my name. People usually get my name mixed up with "Katelynd" or othe's close pronounciations. In my high school we have roughly 100 students, and oddly enough there is another'student with almost the'same name as mine, Kalyn. Also, she is in my same grade. But, other than that I havent met anyone else with the'same name.

I spell my name Kaysie. I love it. The older I get the better I think It'sounds and the fact that It's spelled a little different I think really adds something. I love it. Although I do often get called Cassie for It's spelling.

Right gender for this name Casey. Plus there❤️s an girl in my brother's (who❤️s 7) class name Casey.

01/24/2022 07:41:06

my best friends name is Casey and it totally fits her. but i think It'sounds better on a girl

01/21/2022 12:53:24

Sounds better as a girl's name than as a boy's name. This is the American English name of the Japanese character Mika Koizumi aka the first Yellow Four in the 1996 Japanese TV show 'Chodenshi BI'man' (Super Electron BI'man). She was only in the'show for the first 10 episodes until the character was assassinated with the Biokiller gun held in the hands of one of her enemies of the Neo Empire, making the path clear for Jun Yabuki (known as June in the English dub) to become the'second Yellow Four.

01/13/2022 17:18:54

Chodenshi BI'man (Super Electron BI'man) is a Power Rangers-like program in Japan, but this was in 1996 (about a decade before even Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger (Dinosaur Squadron Beast Rangers), let alone Mighty Morphin Power Rangers), where the original but tragic Yellow Four was a photographer named Mika Koizumi - called 'Casey' in the Filipino English dub.

I am 40 years old. I was the only person (boy OR girl) with this name growing up. Everyone who heard my name but hadn't met me has always thought I was a boy. Now, with social media websIt's, it gets worse. I email someone and they automatically think that they are talking to a guy. At 40 years old I am actually thinking of legally changing the'spelling of my name.

12/31/2021 02:39:36

I love the name Casey becuase its such a perfect name for me! I could never imagine having a different name! Plus, at my school, there is only one Casey and its me! And many girls wish it was there name...

08/02/2021 01:25:48

I like it and its pretty by itself! I like how people change it up like spelling it Kasey. also when'they put another name like Casey Lynn or Casey Marie or something But its still pretty alone and i like it even'though my name is taylor ( i love my name too)
