Hi, I think Faye can stand on its own as a first name. It is actually English name which means "from the fairy kingdom; a fairy or an elf". The only problem I can see is that the word "fey" is a derogatory term for a gay person so there may be some teasing. Faye can also be a nickname for Fate, Favor or Fayme which are pretty unusual choices. Since it is one syllable, It would work better with a longer middle name.

I definitely think Faye can stand on it's own. I know a girl named Fay. Her parents are big fans of Arthurian legend and Morgan le Fay was the sister of King Arthur and a powerful sorceress. Anyway, the name, for me, is just like it's meaning. It means fairy and to me Fay/Faye is light, fun and pretty. Just like a fairy. I don't think it's too insubstantial as a name (it's not any "less" name than John, Nell, Kate or Belle, in my opinion). If you wanted to make it double barreled I think Anna-Faye and Mary-Faye are great. It could be a nickname for Faith, or Phaedra (FAY-dra), or Fable as someone mentioned, or Fabienne when pronounced FAY-bee-en. Or if you want to stretch it a bit Frances or Francesca could work- if Katherine can shorten to Kate then I think Frances can shorten to Fay."Four be the things I'd have been better without: love, curiosity, freckles and doubt." -Dorothy Parker

I love Faye(, Fay, Fae...) too. Faye-Ellen is beautiful. A while back I was trying to fit Faye into my top list of names, but it never made it. I am giving my daughters double barrel names too.
Faye as a first:
Faye Emmeline nn Faye-Emme or Faye-Lene
Faye Jasmine nn Faye-Jaz
Flavia Marie nn Faye-Marie
Faye as a second:
Amelia Faye nn Amy-Faye
Cordelia Faye nn Cora-Faye
Lucia Faye nn Lucy-Faye

I also like Faye/Fay/Fae but prefer longer names so I don't think i'd use it on it's own.
these are kinda a stretch, but I was thinking of using Fae/Fay as a nn for Fiona. I previously thought about Rafaela too.
Others names containing "FA" which could maybe work
