Thread: thoughts on Amy?
August 27th, 2013 10:25 AM #6
I think Amy is an American Classic, it always makes me think of Apple Pie and Ice Cream, poodle-skirts and those little triangular flag banners.
You crushing on it seems very natural to me... though I'm currently going through a "Rosie the Riveter" fashion phase.
Personally I prefer names with a bit more length, especially as FN so I'd be more prone to Amelia nn Amy/Aimee.EXPECTING OUR FIRST, A GIRL, IN MAY 2016.

I don't really like the name, but I have a bad association with a nasty neighborhood girl from my childhood. I do think it's a bit outdated, but the meaning is sweet. I just think it sounds a bit whiny, but that's JMO.baby BOY arriving november 2015

I absolutely loved this name growing up!
It was a decade before my time in terms of being on top... but I loved it.
Go for it

I like it. I think of Little Women, which keeps it from being Strictly Seventies for me. I
I dislike Aimee, though I have a cousin named that.
I like names that are short but complete. Amy keeps good company with Jane, Claire, Blythe, Ivy, Rose... names that are short but not nickname-ish. I'm always surprised that with the popularity of Ava and up-tick of Ivy, Amy gets no love. It feels less commonly-heard-on-children to me than Zoe (I like Zoe, I'm just saying...) and as sweet as Molly or Mae.
It's not really stylish or anything though.
I do know one person who wants to have an Amarantha, Amy for short. I thought that was not exactly my style, but striking.
