Comments for CANDY:

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!

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?

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.
