Mindy is sweet. I didn't know it was short for Melinda. I can see how that would work, but I'm guessing that people use it for multiple names. It's similar to Milly/Millie and Mandy/Mandi. I would guess that quite a few people did/do use Mindy as an independent name, as it certainly works on its own, although personally I would tend to prefer it as a nickname. I'm very much a "long name with nickname" lover though, so that's not really surprising.

"Buttons chases Mindy". Forever tied to Animaniacs, for me.

Mindy is a nice name, contrary to your description! Having the only description for this name be "time to go back to the original"does not help anyone.
