I love my name - and yeah it does bother me A LOT when people spell it wrong - and every time I answer the phone at work and say my name the other person always says "hi Wendy" but the name is pretty and It'seems like It's spelled right with a "e". I love the nick-name Lindz for it too

01/14/2024 00:00:00

My name is lindsey. I feel the'same way a lot of people do about their names. There are days when I like it and days when I don't. I get a little frustrated when people spell it wrong. The worst i've seen It'spelled was Lynsi. That's just weird.

01/14/2024 00:00:00

My daughter's name is Lindsey and the only question we get is "do you spell it 'ey' or 'ay'❤️"

01/14/2024 00:00:00

My name is Linsey. If you think YOUR name was spelled wrong a lot try not having a "D" in it. My mom didn't see the'spelling, she only heard the name and didn't think it would have a D. No one EVer'spells it right. I just got into the habit of saying my name then spelling it right afterwards or saying I'm Linsey with no D. I do like it though because It's unique. I can't imagine being named Jennifer, Ashley, Nicole or something common like that. I wouldn't like if someone said my name and 20 people turned around.

01/14/2024 00:00:00

I like my name well enough, but I wish it weren't so common. People spell it wrong a lot, and sometimes people think my name is Lizzy. Also, it used to be a boys' name. I'd like a name with a more feminine history, and one with a more meaningful meaning than "of the linden'tree island." Okay, now It'sounds really negative, but those aren't really big deals. Other than all that I really like my name.

Lindsey is an excellent name, although I think my name was solely chosen because my sister's name, Kelsey, was had a similar ending.

12/30/2023 10:34:26

We named our Daughter Lindy in 2016 because we wanted something rare and fairly unique. It is a derivative of Linda. The male version came from Charles Lindburgh who was nicked named Lucky Lindy. There is the famous Lindy Hop (1940s dance). She'seems to like it and her friends do, even'though she gets called the usual Lindsay, Linda, etc. by mistake until people get to know her. Her pet name to us is often "Lindy-Lou".

01/29/2023 02:07:58

My name is Lindsey. Most people spell it wrong, they assume It'should be fancier than it is (Lynzee, Lynse, Lindsay, Linsay). Older people always think I am saying "Leslie" when I say my name is "Lindsey."

01/06/2023 13:40:16

My name is Lindsey and I don't know why, but it frustrates me that'someone would assume it is spelled "LindsAy" name is not pronounced is spelled just the way It'sounds...Lin-z. Of course its completely fine for those who spell their name Lindsay, but I think the general assumption should be that it is spelled with an "e" and then, if it is not, should be corrected. Not the other way around.

12/12/2022 20:00:56

09/21/2022 04:33:34

My middle name is spelled "Lindsey" which I'm really happy about. I think that the'spelling "Lindsay" is weird and leads people to pronounce it wrong. I like my middle name!

09/04/2022 04:56:08

09/01/2022 16:23:06

My name is Lindsey. Everyone seems to pronounce it correctly but usually spells it -ay, which I don't think makes much sense. The worst way my name has been spelt is Lynsi, but I still don't mind. I love my name, and although It's not unusual its not exactly common either. :)

08/18/2022 16:34:48

I was born in 1965 and called Lindsey. It has definitely become more popular lately, but I have always liked it. I was the only Lindsey in school. Here in the UK, LindsAy tends to be the boys spelling. I do get my name'spelt wrongly. Usually LYndsey for some reason. But It's not a big deal, as long as they remember it!

09/18/2021 04:22:12
