    My (mis)perceptions:

    a. "nan" in Nancy = nasally

    b. "cy" in Nancy = spoiled

    The "Little House on the Prairie" character has largely influenced this. Not sure how I'd perceive Nancy otherwise.

    As far as I remember! there was only Nellie on Little house on the prairie, and no Nancy.


    I love the name. It reminds my of Nancy Drew, and how wonderfully the books were written. It's a great name with a vintage spark.

    Unfortunately, I've known two Nancys who were less than pleasant, so it's been ruined by association for me. I'm not sure I'd like it even if I hadn't known them though. It's definitely cutesy, has a nickname feel to it, and the similarity to "nanny" bothers me. "Nan" just isn't a pleasant sound in my book.
