Comments for BRANDI:

Brandi is a wonderful name! I am working on a book, and my main character is Brandi.

Brandi actually means "fiery beacon".

My mother gave all of her four of her daughters names that she thought to be unique. I've noticed over the years that people have stopped asking me "does it end with a Y or IE?" Most people will put a Y, a lot of people use I and no one has ever ended it with IE.

I think this is a name that will be forever young. I've often thought that when I reach middle age I will stop using my first name and go by my given middle name, Faye.

Honestly I hate the name Brandi. It sounds too much like a dramatic name!

TRASHY! I think of a stripper/alcoholic/chainsmoker who wears belly shirt tube tops as daywear. NOT PRETTY!

This is my name, and I absolutely hate it. Not only do I have to always inform people "it's with an I," but I am really tired of the jokes about the alcohol. I am sick of people singing the song that goes "brandy, you're a fine girl." I find this name to be tacky and trashy and makes me think of living in a trailer, eating twinkies for breakfast, and chain-smoking while wearing daisy dukes and dirty bare feet chugging a beer in a yard full of broken down cars.

I am working on having it legally changed.

It seemed to have been a trend for awhile for young girls to spell their names with an I instead of a Y or IE, like Jessi, Jenni, Brandi, Tiffani, and Kelsi. I know I went through a phase of kreatyv spylyng with my own name. But this name in particular just looks even worse when spelt Brandi, seems even trashier. Even the spelling Brandie doesn't look quite so cutesy and downmarket.

This spelling is even trashier than Brandy. What if she wants to have a real job rather than be a stripper? Brandi will always be a dogs' name to me, since one of my aunts has a dog with this name.

My name is Brandi and I absolutely love it! I often have people, when they realize that I spell my name with an "i", say "That's such a pretty way to spell it!". I have never had problems with anyone associating my name with liquor of any kind. I have, however, had the trouble of correcting people who try to spell it with a "y" my entire life. Honestly, I think the "i" is better than the "y" because it isn't a direct copy from the drink (But then again, I might be slightly biased.)

My name is Brandi (yes, with an I) and I love it.
The only time I think of a stripper, etc., is when I see it with a Y. It just looks horrible.
I love when people start singing "Brandy, You're a Fine Girl" to me. It makes me feel so special. I, however, never get associated with the drink.
I also like that it's not a very common name, but yet it's still pronounceable.
