    Stephanie is lovely, and I've never heard anyone pull Fanny from it??? I adore the name Stephanie, personally. It's a timeless choice.

    I think its overused like Brittney, Ashley, Brianna, etc.
    But I don't have any personal negative associations with it. Other than it makes me think of a stereotypical basic "mean girl." But then again, I have that association with my own first name.

    Not sure where fanny came from. I’ve never heard anyone use this. I personally see it as very 70/80s and in the list of not ready to come back yet. This is your child though and I think it’s very important to use the name you feel an extra attachment to, the one that feels more than just a name, one you would regret not using.

    It’s the one of the few 70s/80s names I really like. I think it’s nice and think it would suit a little girl today, I’m sure there won’t be many her age named that

    I don't like it but that's only because I have bad associations with it. I think it could be refreshing to hear on a little girl now, and I like Stevie as a nickname.

    I really like the name Stephanie! Yes! It's a beautiful and sweet name. I loved it when I was a child. Fanny or Fannie are common nicknames for Stephanie in French speaking countries. I think it is cute and I didn't know Fanny had a bad connotation in English until I saw this post. You can always find another nickname you love!

    I only know 2 Stephanies in real life. One is a very nice grown adult who is chronically late for everything. And the other is a very loud, very stubborn 5 yr old. The adult goes by Steph and the child goes by Stephanie.

    Yeah, I also don’t think “fanny” is a very intuitive thought for most people when they hear this name.

    That said, while I don’t have any technically negative associations with the name, I personally find it a little tacky (I suppose this is based on the ones I know, so maybe that counts as a negative association?), verrrry 70s/80s, and definitely overused.

    However, regardless of my own feelings about the name or anyone else’s, if you have a strong attachment to the name and truly love it, I think you should use it. I do like the nickname Stevie as @yellowplums mentioned.
