    ..Neither? I don't personally know many Amys, but I picture someone in her late twenties, early thirties. It's a very simple, sweet name, and because of that I couldn't really see it as 'classic;' it doesn't have that flowing, vintage, intricate sound that a name like Isabella, Margaret, or Catherine does. Amelia is a classic, but not Amy. However, I couldn't see it as dated either, because I've never known a large number of older Amys.

    I see it more as a staple name, one that is always there and everyone knows, but will never be extremely popular, like my name (Cecilia), or names like Kristen, Lisa, Abby, Anne...
    I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.

    I once answered to post like this and I will repeat: I love Amy!
    Amelia became quite boring but Amy is so pretty, feminine and simple all in one. I think of Charles Dickens's novel or Little Women and it's such a cosy association...
    Amy Elizabeth, Amy Charlotte or Amy Catharine would be a fine name but to brighten it up, I would pair Amy with something a bit unusual but not unique or trendy. Some ideas:
    Amy Evangeline
    Amy Valentine
    Amy Myrtle
    Amy Letitia
    Amy Alexandrine
    Amy Sybella
    Amy Rosalind
    Amy Rosamund
    Amy Gwendolen

    Amy is a classic. We tend to think it is dated because of its popularity in the 70's.
    I like simple yet versatile names that work well for the athlete, the comic, the genius, and the judge.

    I think it's a bit dated.
