Regardless of my personal sentiments about this name, Amy is also the name of a demon [one of several entities known as Goetic Demons]. John Wier, in his Pseudomonarchia Daemonum, listed Amy as being a president of hell. To quote; 'Amy is a great president, and appeareth in a flame of fier, but having taken mans shape, he maketh one marvelous in astrologie, and in all the liberall sciences, he procureth excellent familiars, he bewraieth treasures preserved by spirits, he hath the governement of thirtie six legions, he is partlie of the order of angels, partlie of potestats, he hopeth after a thousand two hundreth yeares to returne to the seventh throne: which is not credible.'

Interestingly, this Amy is masculine. Hmmm. Anyway. A rather unusual namesake but, I suppose, not something the average man on the street is going to know and associate with your 'angelic' little daughter Amy, haha.

Regarding all the mean-spirited comments about Amy and other names, the name does make the person, the person makes the name. Make sure people have a good association with your name when they hear it.
