Comments for ABBEY:

My friend's name is Abbey Christine. Her parents gave her the full name of Abbey. I don't like it as a full name; only as a nickname for Ab(b)igail.

My daughter is called Abbey. We love her name. She is not a shortened version of Abigail which I think is an old fashioned name. Abbey is a lovely cute name.

I think some "nicknames" need to be on their own. My real name is Jennifer but no one ever calls me that and I don't even think of it as my name anymore. I think the same thing goes for Abbey. I wouldn't name a girl Abigail because I'd never call her that. It's not that I dislike Abigail, I just love Abbey more.

Beatles album is called "Abbey Road" which was released in 1969, this is a good album, containing hits, such as "Come Together", "Something", and "Here comes the Sun".

My cousin's name is Abbey Lynn. It's not short for Abigail, I just can't see my cousin being an Abigail. She's definitely an Abbey! Plus, Abigail Lynn would sound kinda weird.

If you're thinking about naming your daughter Abbey, don't worry about whether it'll be a good name when she's an adult. The name fits a little girl just as well as it fits a woman!

Abbey denotes a Christian monastic community and I always think of that when I hear the name Abbey.

This name can also reference the Christian monastery if not short for Abigail.

I wouldn't put a name like Abbey on a birth certificate because, of course, it should eventually be up to the child itself what spelling to use, or whether to go with Abigail. More options are always better, because it will be her name for life.

However, I personally like this shortened version of the name best. I think it's cute with the 'e'.

I love this spelling of Abby. It seems so sweet! I also like Abbye.

This name can also be masculine, short for Abbott, Abner, Albert or Absalom. A famous bearer is Abbott "Abbey" Hoffman, to give you an example.

I wouldn't use Abbey as a full name, I'd use Abigail. Because, like already said, then the child could choose what to be called.

Isn't an abbey a place where nuns live? I couldn't name my child that.

I really don't like this spelling, however it's better than Abi and Abbi. I prefer Abbie and Abby though.

My name is Abbey Rose. Most people comment on the Beatles album when they hear it. I like the sound of it, although I'd much prefer a different spelling such as Abbie, Abbi or Abby.

Never cared for Abbey until The West Wing. The first lady's name is Abbey using that spelling and I fell in love with it.

Abbey just barely missed the top 1000 in 2012, tying with Dalia, Wren, and Aurelia with 250 babies being given the name.
