Candace was the name of the queen that the eunuch, mentioned in Acts, worked for. She was the queen of Ethiopia, so that means that she was most likely black. The Eunuch, who is believed to be the first recorded gentile convert to Christianity, was Queen Candace's treasurer.

Famous bearer is Candace Cameron (Bure). She portrayed Donna Jo Tanner (D.J.) on Full House. Also the sister of Kirk Cameron, who portrays Buck Williams in "The Left Behind" books and movies.

I hate the name Candy, it reminds me of a stripper or some bubble head, BUT I love the name Candace. It is so happy and pretty sounding. I also think Candace Cameron-Bure is awesome! I would name my daughter Candace as long as they didn't call her Candy! =)

Candace is a beautiful name. I have to agree, the nickname Candy is horrible. I kind of like the spelling Candice better though. I had thought the name Candice Emily was pretty.

I think Candace is a wonderful, upscale, elegant name. I wonder why it isn't more popular!

Candace is my name, and I love it, wouldn't trade it for anything else! I've met a number of Candaces, and they've always pronounced it 'kan-des' or 'kan-das', not 'kan-day-see'. Also, the nickname Candy dosen't make me think of some air-headed bimbo, instead a person with a very respectable, sweet and likeable personality. Any Candy I've known has been like this.

In 1983 I named my daughter after one of my favorite actors, Candace Bergen (Murphy Brown on tv). I feel that this name gives the impression of strength, intelligence and class. Classy but not snobby. As far as someone calling her Candy? Fine, but don't do it in front of me.

Candace is an alright name but it just always reminds me of Canada.

This is my middle name, and I love it. I might consider naming my daughter this.

If your name is Candace, don't make people call you Candi or Candy! It sounds cheap, and not very creative. Or beautiful.

I'm kind of indifferent to this name. It always makes me think of cantalopes. But I'll admit it does have an interesting ring to it.

What an beautiful name! It has a great history behind it, and is not overused.

I think this name is awesome, I think the nickname, Candie, is cool also!

Candace is a fine name, though it's not one of my favorites. I don't like the nickname Candy.

Very lovely. Would make a really nice name for a girl of African descent because of the association with Ethiopian queens.

Candace Camren was D.J. from Full House.

No offense, but it sounds a little slutty to me. The nickname Candi sounds like a stripper name and Candace itself sounds like "canned-a**"

I've never really liked this name, but I suppose you could call your daughter Candy for short, but then she might be teased.

In William Faulkner's "The Sound and the Fury", Candace (Caddy) Compson becomes illegitimately pregnant and is run out of her formerly wealthy, aristocratic, but now degenerate and fallen family.

I love the name Candace, I think it's beautiful. Though I think I like the spelling 'Candice' better. It just rolls off the tounge easier. You know CAND-is, as opposed to CAND-as.

I usually hear it pronounced kan-DIS but I love it pronounced kan-di-SEE.

My brothers ex's name is Candace. I love the name. Very pretty. We called her CandyCane. She always went by Candy, which is something I can't understand, because Candace is too pretty of a name to be messed with.

In an old baby name book from before my mother was born (50s and 60s) it was noted that Candace was popular in the pre-war South (guessing Civil War), particularly because of the nicknames Candy and Daisy. We named our daughter Candace and we call her Daisy.

For some reason, whenever I hear this name, I hear:
Ohhh say... can this see...

It would be a great name if it wasn't always being shortened to Candy.
Black_X  10/9/2011
This has a very youthful sound to it, but it also looks "Established" Unfortunately the whole Candy nickname causes it to seem immature.

If I ever had a daughter named Candace, I'd just call her Dacey instead of Candy nickname wise. I also love the idea of Candy Cane, or even Cadie/Cady.

I never liked this name. It sounds bimbo-ish to me.

I've grown to like it after watching a popular cartoon with a character named this. Candace sounds very light, it's a pretty name.

I was also named after the famous Candice Bergen, but to avoid being shortened to Candi, my mom insisted on spelling it with an A. Being a child with the name Candace Bergen in the early 90's got me a lot of Murphy Brown nicknames. I like the name but I can't stand when other Candace's shorten theirs to Candy.

Candace is a lovely name, and I VERY much enjoy the nickname Candy (as explained on its own page.)

I think if you live in California, Candace would be a great name for you! (If you are a girl.)
iamauser  7/18/2015
I love the name Candace, I love the diminutives too! I think a good diminutive would be Dacey.

The name Candace was given to 89 girls born in the US in 2015.

Candace, the name of that girl on Phineas and Ferb who always tried to bust her brothers! She was funny.

My Name is Candies-Elizabeth and the meaning behind Candace is very true for my life. The numbers are right too. It's kinda scary to me. And my name is pronounced Kandeez Elizabeth.
