My name is Nancy and I was born in 1966. I have found that most of the other Nancy's that I have met through my life are my age or older which according to your graph would be right. I was named after the Frank Sinatra song, "Nancy with the'smiling face", which I was told was written for his wife and daughter of the'same name.

Nobody ever remembers my name. When I tell them it is Nancy, the response is always the'same. You don't look like a Nancy. It is a family name going back many generations. To hear the word Nancy sounds flat and tone deaf to me. I cringe every time I hear it out loud.

1/8/2023 7:24:12 AM

Well my name is Nancy Reyes, i am 16 years old, and i absolutely love my name. It is a very unique name i have never known so many Nancy's could be in this world, I have only met one Nancy. I agree with people misspelling the name, i have had many experiences with people spelling it wrong. One of my classmates can't memorize my name, and call me nini, I think about where does she get Nini out of Nancy. I have had another friend that thought my name was Natalie, which everyone got used to hearing him call me like that, that it came to the point every one started to call me like that. I love my name no matter what. I am a very social person, i like to always be happy, i have many friends. The reason my mother named me like this was because her best friend was called Nancy. Though i used to hate my name, because i wanted to be named how my grandpa wanted which was Anahi. Though now i really like it, It's really rare,over here where i live. :). So i love this name very much.

1/1/2023 7:17:56 AM

I am in my early 60s and grew up in Canada. I did not know another "Nancy" in all my years in school there, including college. Then, I'moved to the U.S. (Hawaii), and I now know so many Nancys here. At my first job, there were 4 staff, and 3 of us were Nancys! i've always liked my name, and enjoy being called "Nance".

12/31/2022 5:11:32 PM

My best friend is named Nancy and she is 12. Her middle name is Che'sy Dorthy. She likes Che'sy more than her other middle name Dorthy.

12/30/2022 5:02:38 AM

My name is Nancy Layne I'm 13 and I was born after my grandmother who died before I born. It's nice to see some other Nancy's out there!

12/23/2022 8:30:56 PM

I'm a different spelling Nancie. Born in 1971. This is how my mom had it on my birth records. I was always happy for this because in a class with several Nancys, I stood out. People call me Nan and Nance all the time but my favorite is Nannie Poo, given'to me by my mom. I love being unique.

My name is Nancy Maria and I have always loved my name. In Italian it is Annunziata and I am named after my Italian grandparents whom I have never met. Both passed away before I was born so it is an honor to be named after them. I have always enjoyed having a unique name that not many other people my age have shared. Only recently did someone say to me that it was an old lady name. I never thought of it that way. If it was good enough for Sinatra, its good enough for me. ;)

12/19/2022 7:46:36 AM

My name is Nancy & I love it. I live in Australia ⁢ is not common here

12/18/2022 3:54:24 PM

12/16/2022 10:28:06 PM

my son is called nancy. He is 13 years old. He has the most friends i've ever'seen a young boy have. They chase him home and even play dodgeball with him by chuckng up apples and bricks to his treehouse. I think It's a very masculine name. Yours, Clancy.G.Bellend

12/15/2022 7:25:50 PM

My name is Nancy. A lot of people at my school call me fancy Nancy, and I HATE IT!? but, the whole "Nancy means grace thing" is totally NOT my style. I love skateboarding, a di prefer to hang out with boys. I am nowhere close to graceful, or a nerd. My hobbies are hip-hop, skateboarding, and hanging ot with friends. People often don't call me my first name, but instead I go by Annie. I think my name is pretty sick, and I am very proud of having a unique name. ?

12/8/2022 4:37:54 AM

My parents named me Nancy, because they just knew I'd have a Laughing Face, just like Frank Sinatra's Nancy in his song with the'same name. That was the'song I had played at my wedding when I danced with my dad. I didn't get married until I was 50, and my dad wasn't in the greatest shape, but he made it all the way through. That's something I'll always cher'sh.

12/7/2022 1:56:14 PM

My mother named me Nancy Margaret -- Nancy because she liked the way the name looked on the map of France, and Margaret because that was her name. I have never had a problem with people pronouncing my name nor remembering it, and I am fine with it. I am 66, so in 1942, it was a pretty popular name, according to statistics.

12/6/2022 2:57:52 AM

My name is Nancy. Everyone I know loves the name! I'd rather be called Nancy - than something common and typical of 'the times'. Born in the 70's I am also a 'younger' Nancy. In Australia the name was very common in the 1962's!! All the Nancy's are dying now!!

11/30/2022 5:56:50 PM

nancy is a beautiful name. my daughter is called nancy and i knew from a young age that if i had a daughter that'she would be named nancy.

11/29/2022 11:25:56 PM

My mom's name is Nancy and I feel like It's such a nice name but is often considered an old lady name because so many mom's have it. I don't see anybody younger than 30 having it.

11/29/2022 9:57:46 PM

My 3years daughter is Nancy, She is a very active girl, grasp things easly only that'she is stubborn too ready to fight at any time and will protect her 5years sister against any thing. she is very easly loved by any one she meet!

11/27/2022 9:45:54 PM

Seems to be more of a middle age name, but still a pretty name.

11/20/2022 3:08:44 AM

Hi, My name is Nancy and I was named this name after a white missionary who went to Africa. She was a friend of my dad and he named me after her. I love my name and I think I am the only black female in America with this name. The name has opened a lot of doors for me eventhough, some are closed when I show up. I am full of grace and proud of all the other wonderful and great Nancys out there. I am 54 years old by the way.

11/17/2022 10:29:24 AM

I'm 35 years old, American, and am happy to hear about the other Nancys out there. My parents knew a few Nancys from their generation, but I wasn't named after anyone in particular. Like another Nancy wrote, I didn't like my name growing up in the 70s and 80s because it wasn't cool. "Cool names" to me at the time were Lisa, Kari, and Heather. I never met another Nancy who wasn't a friend's mother until I went to high school. It was nice knowing I wasn't the only Nancy in the world under 45! My friends like my name and say my name'suits me... different, quirky, and fun!

11/11/2022 9:00:54 AM

hi!!! i am Nancy Modi... my frnds pronounce it as Nan cee... i think that it is unique name in India and i feel proud that many greatest personalities have "Nancy" is as their name....

10/31/2022 3:34:06 PM

I'm Nancy Elizabeth and have always liked my name - friends growing up either called me "Fancy" because it rhymes with Nancy, or Nancerella! My husband of 21 yrs. calls me "Nan." I only knew one other Nancy in my K-12 years and no othe's during college -"hi" to all the other Nancys out there! : )

10/31/2022 1:45:20 AM

I love that ther are so many people that love their Nancy name! I have never been especially fond of it, but now I'm starting to have a different attitude. When I was younger I knew only one other Nancy, but now I know many--we are in the "older" group, mid 40's. I look forward to meeting some of the next Nancy generation!

10/29/2022 6:00:56 PM

When I was young. I didn't like my name. I asked people To call me Ann. When I was in college I knew no other Nancy. There just wasn't too many Nancy which is good but also bad as I didn't want to stand out. During college my good friends started to call me Nanu because my last name is Liu and I suddenly felt cool. As the years past I began to love my name especially since I named my business after my married name and I love how It'sounds. It is unique and though not popular it is fun and sweet and sassy. I am glad to know othe's who are proud of their name. Call me Nanu, Nance, Nan or Nancy - I answer to all!

10/29/2022 1:18:48 PM

i think the name nancy is becoming popular again as the names violet and lily- nancy is a sweet name!

10/27/2022 11:21:08 AM

I am almost 68, born in 1942, and am named Nancy Margaret. My mother liked the way Nancy looked in print, especially when she'saw pictures of girls named Nancy in the'society pages of the newspaper. I guess she thought it was kind of a high-class name! I have always liked both my names but I happen'to like Margaret better. I was never ridiculed for my name but I have never known very many Nancys.

10/19/2022 9:08:28 PM

i really like that name

10/18/2022 2:49:16 AM

I am expecting a baby girl, due date 4th July 2021. I plan to call her Nancy, after my grandmother who was aslo born on July 4th, she is 83 years old! She was actually christened Annie Elizabeth and she hated that name, so reverted to Nancy the other form of Anne. My husband was not sure about the name, and my other children'think It's 'old-fashioned'. But I like the name, It'sounds very unique.

10/3/2022 10:09:16 AM

I was named after my grandmother, Annunziata, in english is Nancy. I love my name; it has done well by me.

9/29/2022 6:49:12 AM

I am a Nancy and I love my name, I was named after a grandmother I never met. I am happy that my mother loved her mom so much to name me after her.

9/26/2022 2:24:32 AM

My name is Nancy, after my mother. I used to NOT like it but now that I'm older, it fits. My husband calls me Nancy Pants.

9/23/2022 6:34:12 PM

this is my name.. haha i dont know anyone who spells it the'same but apparently alot of people have it.. thats nice

9/23/2022 3:37:52 PM

Although, born with the name Nancy...honestly, i've never liked it. The name has no flare. To me, the name Nancy sounds too ole'fashion and there's nothing unique about the name. The'spelling and pronounciation has never been a problem; overall, people get it correct on the first try. No offense, to those of you out there who bear the name, Nancy ...I'mean no offense; these are my personal thoughts that i've decided to share with the world. The name does not and has not, ever, done a thing for me; except, want to change it! Nancy Ciuzio, Ponchatoula, LA

9/22/2022 5:32:24 AM

my name is Nancy im 25yrs old from liverpool britain. i didnt like my name at all growing up because its a old fashioned name, i've now ended up loving my name because its different and makes people remember it when'they hear it! lol. I'm doing my bit to make nancy a cool name! :-)

9/19/2022 6:45:44 PM

My name is Nancy Claire, and have never thought the name "Nancy" was particularly elegant. The older I get, the more at peace I am with is important to like your name! Disturbed to find out that maybe my name came from Agnes, I have always thought it was from Anne and meant "grace". God bless al the Nancys out there!

9/17/2022 8:54:56 PM

My name is Nancy and I am 73. It was once very popular. My favorite Nancy is Nancy Hanks, Lincoln's mother.

9/17/2022 12:05:56 PM

Here's a poem that I composed for my third grade class. The teacher loved it! My name is Nancy; It's not very fancy. I like my name; I'm glad yours is not the'same."

9/16/2022 8:13:44 PM

I was called Nancy Lou growing up,I always liked it and every now and then someone will call me by that nick name.My real name is Nancy Elizabeth..........

9/16/2022 7:00:14 AM

This is my mom's name and I LOVE it! She grew up as Lenora, but when she got married she went by Lee. After retiring and moving, she wanted to go by Lenora and so now everyone calls her Lenora. I think It's a very unique and beautiful name.

9/14/2022 6:33:42 PM

I love it! I'm 17 and I love having the name Nancy because It's true that you don't find many Nancy's these days and it makes me unigue. And It's a nice feminine name that has been around for many years which makes it even more special. :)

9/11/2022 11:12:42 AM

I am 55, and my name is Nancy Joyce. I was named after my mother's best friend. I always wanted a more exotic name growing up. I was surprised to see the Fancy Nancy books, and I wondered if the name has come back in style. I have never'seen a child named Nancy since I was a child.

9/5/2022 11:30:00 AM

i also love my name i like it because it is not that common i have only met one person with my name Nancy Lissette and i have a 5 year old son named Nathan Alexander

9/3/2022 6:42:36 PM

My name is nancy,named after my grandmother, my mom gave me Priscilla as my second name.i've only met one other nancy

8/26/2022 5:38:42 PM

My name is Nancy and I guess its ok....not very common so I feel unique!

8/24/2022 9:43:30 PM

In the UK, Nancy is viewed as a name for an old aunt. If a bloke was called Nancy here, he'd be ridiculed, even'though it wasn't his choice in the first place. I don't like my name, but have got used to it as I got older, had the p*** taken outta me when I was growing up. It's a cultural issue, names "acceptable" in one country, aren't in another.....

8/10/2022 8:05:24 PM

I like this name, because I have a crush on my coworker named Nancy...she's pretty and all smiles. I love Nancy!!!

8/10/2022 1:41:06 PM

My mom and I are both Nancy. She was born in the 50s when it was at its peak. It is nice to meet Nancy's my age. I have met many who are my mom's age or older. However, I think it is a classic name and like it. If I have a daughter I have considered naming her Nancy as well.

8/8/2022 3:56:06 PM

Nancy. That's my cousin's name and my friend's name. It's different. I never thought of it as a pretty name because I always picture an old lady. Now I think It's a very inter'sting name. Pretty cool name. I like the'spelling Nance.

8/7/2022 4:08:42 PM

I named my daughter Nancy after my mother. She is the only Nancy in her'school. I love the name. People often ask me if it is a family name.

8/3/2022 6:48:54 PM

I love the name Nancy i also love that it can be shortened to Nan i think it is a very friendly name and one that is not common.. Go all you Nancy's

8/3/2022 9:39:54 AM

hey my name is Nancy to and i dont likeit because all most all the girls in my clas are nancy. i ame 15 and like 9 girls in my class are name nancy. but i like my names because ALL THE GUYS LIKE MY NAME NANCY all the boys are all around me because i am proud of my name and because i ame cutethe name nancy is SEXY.

8/3/2022 6:00:18 AM

I find that Nancy is a great name for a child born today because it is not so common to name a child Nancy anymore. I have yet to meet a Nancy that is my age(13), and i beli've it is a very classic and elegant name. There have also been many prominent Nancys throughout history so the name has a good reputation.

7/2/2022 8:02:42 PM

My name is Nancy... i've always had mixed feeling about my name. In elementary school I was called Nancy Reagan and I didn't like it. Growing up in LA I was never the only nancy. Older people would ask if I was named Nancy after'sinatra's daughter, which I wasn't, more like a soap opera actress. I really don't like it when people that are not my friends call me Nance. Oh and rhyming it with other words if worse. The whole grace thing, yeah not me. I was and still am a tomboy. But needless to say I do like my name.

6/14/2022 8:09:54 PM

Born 1965. My father, who was from France, wanted to name me Michelle Renee, But my mom's mom said I was a Nancy and so Nancy Suzette was born. Never cared for my name, but feel better after all of these nice posts! Hooray to all the Nancys

6/14/2022 4:36:36 AM

Nancy is my name too and again I always get positive reactions from people I am 22 and have only met one other Nancy...a girl in my class at school!! I love that people can remember me because my name is different and I get Nancy Pants too amongst other names!!

6/3/2022 8:45:00 AM

I love my name "NANCY" because It's unique...whenever am hanging out with my friends and I'meet other friends and uncles and aunties when am asked what my name is and am like "NANCY" their response is "what a lovely name".."It's pretty and so are you".I always thank my mom and dad for giving me the name.It's AWESOME because you can hardly find anybody called "NANCY" nowadys...all the girls called Nancy must be very proud of their name because "WE ARE FULL OF GRACE...

5/24/2022 11:45:54 AM

i've just named my newborn daughter Nancy x love it :)

5/17/2022 12:25:30 AM

My parents named me Nancy (I am the only one in the family) in 1985. They liked it because it was easy to pronounce, spell, and didn't contain lots of letters. I was born the day after Valentine's Day. I always liked my name and only knew 2 other Nancy's growing up.

5/15/2022 5:18:54 PM

My name is Nancy. When I was young, I didn't really like the name. But now I do!!

4/6/2022 5:16:12 PM

I want a long version of "nancy" for a boy. nancy has a ring to it i love it but It's just not for me, nancy boy is a slang now maybe thats why its dropped so low in popularity.

3/24/2022 6:16:30 AM

Way too many people named Jason growing up wish people could be more original. my brothe's name was Trent and never had to worry about mix ups.

3/24/2022 3:31:48 AM

2/7/2022 5:39:36 AM

My grandaughter who is now five weeks old is called nancy, she was named after my mother. AT first I found it a little strange - but I am now getting used to it and love the name. Like many othe's I feel it is a name that may become popular.

1/8/2022 7:23:06 AM

hI'my name is nancy i am only 12 i luv my name and in the uk there Isn't many people named Nancy!!!

12/30/2021 12:01:12 PM

Every Nancy I have met is a great employee, funny, unique, and a good listener. She beli'ves in family and friendship. Although we may start our lives as very shy we love people and will eventually become social animals. I bet most of us like cats more than dogs; however, small dogs hold a place in our hearts. My mother would call me Nancy Lee when she was upset, my co-workers call me Nan or Nanc, my neices and newphe's, and boyfriend call me Auntie Nanc (not related to the boyfriend thats just what he calls me!)

12/26/2021 1:46:30 PM

my friend is called nancy- its a classical name. love it.

12/2/2021 10:28:30 PM

well my name is natalie and I'm very thankful my mother gave it to me. but i only have one problem with the name, i come from a family who, unfortunatly, come from the large sizes. so kids at primary school used to call me 'fatalie'. because of that i decided to loose weight, i became succesful and everybody got a huge shock. they could no longer call me fatalie, and i was really happy. i just couldnt stand being teased. the teache's did nothing about me being teased. I'm now in high school and have heaps of friends. just have a little think over what your child could be named when it comes to situations like mine. enjoy!!

12/1/2021 8:57:36 AM

My name is Nancy and am now a teacher. In my 25+ years of teaching, I have NEVER had a student named Nancy...although there were always several in my classes when I was a child (I was born in 1968). Trendy, made-up names, or "last names as first names" are very popular, but I know my name will be the trend again soon!

11/21/2021 5:34:12 AM

Personally i can't stand my name. I always felt it belonged to an older lady, and now that I'm getting older i still don't like it. i can't go by my middle name bcuz It's horrible too so I'm stuck. i've always thought about changing it but i've been with it for 36 yrs i guess it doesn't matter now. glad to know all of you like it. It's kinda weird bcuz i really nvr knew anyone personally with that name except me. thanks all you nancy's maybe it will grow on me. ;)

9/19/2021 1:18:36 PM

My daughters name is Nancy, she was born in 2010. I think It's a lovely name, she's sort of named after my grandmother, her name is Agnes, when I looked up Agnes in the baby name book and saw that Nancy was derived from Agnes I just knew it was for my daughter. It's very unique without being to odd. We all love the name NANCY!!!

9/13/2021 8:09:54 AM

I love the name! My great great great grandfather was called nancy, and my great great grandfather, and my great grandfather, and my grandfather, and my father, and me, and my son, and my grandson, and my great grandson, and he and his wife are expecting a baby boy, and he will be called nancy soon.

It was hard growing up being told I had a ?old lady name? it was never a walk in the park but I enjoy being different more than I hate being Nancy

Hi Nancy's out there. I'm 48 and love my name. As a child I was called 'fancy Nancy' as probably most Nancy's were...It's certainly a nice nickname! It's easy to write, pronounce and sounds pretty too, especially when spoken by someone with a beautiful accent!

I have liked my name . I'met one other Nancy in all my school years, and we traveled a lot. Then about 25 years ago I started meeting them. There was a Golden Book "Nurse Nancy" it came with a band-aide. One day at work at the change of shift we had 4 Nurse Nancys in one room. We spanned 3 generations in age. I have a daughter-in-law Nancy. There are other Nancys in her family. I have a GGreat Aunt Nancy b.1857. I seem to meet Nancys every where I go. I have liked them all. Song " Nancy with the'smiling eyes" My outlook is the'same, Always smile.
