Candy Green Says:


I quit like my name!!! People made fun of it as I growing up (although when I was very young I thought they were being nice), it was things like hay candy bar, sugar, chocolate, comments like are you really sweet? Then in my teens the comments became offensive hi Dizzy, hey Floozy and I have been asked if I am a hooker or a porn star multiple times, But, but, but I quickly realized it is always the jerks of this world who make these comments and it was not worth getting bothered about it.

The people who really annoy me are these that decide to call me Candace, Recently went on a course and the woman was lecturing called me Candace, so I corrected her. She then told me she could not call me Candy and asked if she could call me Candace. Of course I told her you can call me Candace, if I can call by a different name too. She never used my name once during the week.

However II am sweet so Candy does suit me :)

(I am redoing my comment for Candy, but still keeping the old one, so here are my new thoughts for the name Candy)
I think this is a cute nickname for Candace, but not a name by itself.

CupcakeGirl13 Says:


Nickname for home, but not for the real name, Kandee is okay, I think, but Candy, no no no!

DON'T do it! I've learned to live with it, but having this name sucks. Aside from the obvious candy jokes growing up, there's also the hurtful "slutty, stripper, porn star" side to it. If you really like it, then at least go with Candace so your poor daughter can have a "serious" name when she's out in the world.
