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

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!

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

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

9/3/2022 6:42:36 PM

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

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

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

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. I hope you find my family inspiring. nancy c. namalot

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

9/2/2021 10:28:30 AM

I love my name!!!I was named Nancy after Nancy Sinatra. My parents loved her'song "Those boots are made for walking".

8/16/2021 1:07:48 PM

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!

8/1/2021 12:37:12 PM

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.
