It sounds too ditzy to me, it sounds like a floozy's name (my apologies). "Candy"/"Candi" is undignified. "Candace" is a lovely name; use it.

Always reminds me of a bimbo.

"Candy's Room" is a song by Bruce Springsteen and "Candy Says" is one by The Velvet Underground.
Funny story - I knew a woman with the surname Cotton. Her parents almost named her Candy, but didn't. She was very grateful.

My name is Candi, and yes I have taken my share of comments over the years.
Honestly, I like my name. My husband says it reflects my personality, sweet. :-) That works for me.

I like the nickname Candy. I think it's cute and perfect for someone with a sweet personality!

This is my grandma's first name. She got it changed from Carmel Ball to Candy Ball. In my opinion, I don't think it was much of a change.

I think the name Candy is sweet for a 5 year old but you wouldn't want a 60 year old walking around with the name Candy.

Stupid name!
FairyGirl  6/25/2006
My friends, and some family, call me Candy, only in informal situations. Personally, I don't care what anyone thinks about it; I know I'm an intelligent, respectable person, and like the anonymous user said: it's a perfect name for someone with a sweet personality!

Yummers! I love Candy! Also kinda trendy!
Starla-Marie_1993  7/25/2006
Try to picture a 50 year old with the name Candy. Would it still suit them?
― Anonymous User  7/27/2006
I think that Candy is a very cute name. You are just all ignorant, who could say that the name only fits a bimbo, I mean not all Candy's are stupid blondes. You make all people feel bad if they have the name and they are blondes. I mean not all blondes are bimbos! So Candy is not a bimbo name!

The first Candy I ever knew was not a person, but a dog. A very old, three-legged dog my grandparents had. I can't recall much about her except that she was middle-sized and black. Candy's kind of cute, but not very grown-up sounding. I just can't imagine a Judge Candy Cooper, whereas I have no trouble envisioning a Judge Candace Cooper.

Again, whatever the spelling this name screams 'TACKY!'
bellaboo  11/13/2006
It's a cute nickname, but I would never use it as a real name.
scarletquillraven  12/28/2006
Candy is not a bad name. It is cute and fun! So stop judging people.

I don't like this name for a person but I like it for a cat.
― Anonymous User  2/10/2007
This is like naming your kid Sugar or Coco. It's kind of silly sounding.
― Anonymous User  2/23/2007
I kinda like the name. My friends name is Candace. But I call her Candy.
Carli3  5/21/2007
My great Aunt's name is Candy. I think it's nice as a nickname to Candance, but not a name on its own.
― Anonymous User  6/3/2007
No offence to anybody, but whenever I hear the name 'Candy' I think 'cocktail waitress!'

I like *eating* Candy.
melrose452  9/25/2007
This would be a cute nickname for a friend of a relative, but in my opinion it's very stripper sounding. You know, because strippers seem to always pick names after foods for some reason.
tu_es_faux  3/8/2008
The name is simply too cutesy and immature, and a woman named Candy would have a hard time trying to be taken seriously.
slight night shiver  5/18/2008
I really mean no offence to anyone with this name but it always makes me think of a hooker.
sammi-boo  7/13/2008
This name is tolerable, but only if it's short for something like Candace. It should NEVER be used as a name on its own.
Pippin  7/25/2008
Candy would be a cute nickname for Candice if so many people didn't have their heads in the gutter. I used to really like this nickname, but all things considered I wouldn't give it to a child.
KayeKiLa  8/13/2008
This name makes me think of a porn star or a stripper.
bananarama  8/21/2008
Candy Suxxx (real name Candice Shand) is a prostitute and porn star in Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

Candy Ardly, the main character in the Japanese manga from 1975-1979 "Candy Candy".
camilana646  4/7/2009
How about just name your kid "Coco" or "Suger" or something like that? This name makes me think of those girls in miniskirts with annoying little voices that can't even read.
― Anonymous User  6/7/2009
I thought this was a cool name when I was, like, twelve. Now it just strikes me as the type of name you give your daughter when you have no higher aspirations for her than a stripper or perpetual resident of the trailer park. Just about sums up everything that goes wrong when you name or even nickname your daughter Candy.
Anyechka  8/7/2009
It reminds me of some-one who is very sweet! However, it is often used as a stage name by people in the uhhh, "sex" industry and that just ruins for people.
thenamegame  10/4/2009
This name makes me want to puke. If I ever had a daughter, I would NOT EVER name her Candy. It's even worse than "Kay" or "Chloe".
― Anonymous User  3/9/2011
I beg of you, do not name your child Candy.
Not only does it sound undignified, it has such a stigma attached to it; see above! People can only see Candy on a stripper, or a pole dancer.
xsai  6/4/2011
This is a trashy name that won't be taken seriously outside the porn industry.
Bonquiqui  6/7/2012
No way! This name sounds like a trashy stripper or porn star name. It also makes the bearer look dumb, especially when spelled Candi, Kandi, Candee, or Kandee.
Buneary  10/28/2012
Whenever I find names like this (Word names) I ALWAYS see people complaining about how it's "Trashy" and a "Porn star" name. People are so ridiculous. I think the name is cute and very sweet. I have a friend who goes by Candy but her name is Candace. :)
Gio123  8/7/2013
What a sad society we live in when the automatic reaction to a name like Candy is that it is for strippers, hookers, or "trashy" people. Nonsense.
linden-tree-murmur  4/7/2014
Thank you "linden-tree-murmur" for your comment.
My formal name is Candace, however, I prefer to be called Candy. A majority of these comments are extremely offensive... sad how judgmental people are. Sorry to disappoint most of you but I am not, nor ever have been a stripper, pole dancer, porn star. Etc. I am a beautiful sister, mother and daughter to the parents who named me.

King Candy (also known as Turbo) is the antagonist in the Disney movie Wreck-It Ralph.
― Anonymous User  7/10/2014
Wow. How incredibly ignorant. My name happens to be Candy. While I do get the occasional jerk who likes to take a cheap shot about my name, it just highlights how little class they have. I love my name, and those who knocked it calling it trashy and such need to get over yourselves. If you are going to jump to conclusions over someone's name, well, you're probably not worth my time anyway.

Candy Dulfer is a smooth jazz saxophonist. She was influential to other female smooth jazz saxophonists such as Mindi Abair.
PinkJazzX  12/16/2014
It's funny to me how so many people are saying that this name sounds frilly/slutty/stupid. I like it. Especially if it were a nickname for a girl named Candace.
― Anonymous User  12/26/2014
I love this name, and would totally name my daughter it, but since so many women with this name get rude comments about how stripperish/trashy it sounds, I think she'd resent me for it.
― Anonymous User  3/2/2015
I love the sound of "Candy" as a name, and have no idea how it's supposed to sound trashy or stripperish or stupid... other than that one might assume the parents were attempting to be "cutesy" or something, but even then, it really doesn't sound overly frilly or saccharine (ironically.) The only association I have with the name is actually "hippie," due to the Candy Warren girl from "The Tale of Locker 22" from "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" One of those things that just sticks with you forever, and that's what I hear/think of when considering the name. I even prefer it to Candace, although I'd definitely use it as a nickname for that more formal name, rather than on its own.
IEnjoyTonsOGoodNames  4/17/2015
I am surprised no one mentioned Carole Gene "Candy" Spelling (born 1945). She's well over 50 now and still uses it. I associate the name with her.
EstherTester  3/28/2016
The name Candy was given to 52 girls born in the US in 2015.

I like this as a nickname and for a dog/cat.

Candy Chiu, a pun on "Candy chew", is a character on the recently ended Disney cartoon, Gravity Falls.
cool22  6/29/2017
This name makes me think of a bleached blonde, orange-skinned bimbo who wears revealing clothing, dates multiple guys at once, and weighs less than a 5-year-old.
Acajou  9/17/2017
I am a Candy and for a long time I really did not like my name. I am not a Candi or a Candace it is Candy. And all of the comments about it sounds 'ditzy' or like a 'floozy's' or a 'hooker' name had a negative impression on me as a child. I tried to go by some other name but it never worked. Over the years I have gotten used to it and even like it now. I realized that it was just people's ignorance that made me feel bad about my name, my mom used to tell me I got my name because I am sweet, and over the years I have learned to tune out all of the negative comments and the 'floozy' insinuations. So all of you Candy haters can just continue to be jealous, my mom was right, I am sweet!
Cotton65  10/25/2017
Sorry, but I strongly agree with all those who dislike this name. I didn't even realize it until I had a coworker of this name and I couldn't bring myself to say it out loud. Usually don't care that much, but it just doesn't sound proper for a respectable grown woman.
― Anonymous User  11/2/2017
I’m from China and this name is really popular, many girls chose this as their English name because they want to be sweet just like a Candy. I like the full form Candace but Candy is too old-fashioned and just way too "trashy" (no offense to anyone who was named or goes by "Candy"). It was the name of a tropical storm in 1968 that made landfall in Texas.
