I don't see why everyone says bad things about this name. It's not bad, it's very feminine and sounds pleasant. I hope all the Cindys out there don't feel bad reading these comments. Don't take them seriously, Cindy is a nice name.

I recently changed my name to Cindy, from Lucinda.
For most of my (15 years) life, I was called Luci (yes, with an 'i') eventually I changed it to Lucy, now Cindy. Personally, I feel like I didn't exactly have much to start out with, having the name of an old actress and all. I have yet to meet anyone who was Cynthia -> Cindy, but a director for a play I was in was Cindi... who was at least in her 40s. Cheers to old lady names?

My name is Cindy and I like to be called Cyn, Sydney, or Syd. It’s a cute name and I like hearing people say it. I think the polls and its opinion on it are highly unlikely. But 162 people can’t determine the scale alone. I see a lot of people care about the birth name of Cindy and that is really good but it seems like people named Cindy are highly disregarded. They got potential but today society doesn’t care about potential. People named Cindy shouldn’t pick sides and should remain neutral (just like their name). I say this to say, that as a girl named Cindy (as a full name not a nickname) I am bigger than most people in height and weight. There is nothing minuscule about me but the irony is hilarious. Sounds like people are confused to the true history of Cindy. Seeing this page makes me glad I am myself. Wanted to mention that Cynthia to me is aggravating to be called and Cinderella is annoying so expect an eye roll to either.

My first impression is of the haters of this name? How could you. I love the name Cindy. I like Cynthia too. I prefer Cindy. It makes me think of a popular girl who is fun to be around. Not peppy, but popular... think "Can't Buy Me Love" 80s movie! You can't lose with the name Cindy. It's fun and professional. Cute and feminine.

My name is Cindy. Not Cynthia or Lucinda but just plain Cindy. I love my name! I've always thought it sounded like a friendly, happy name. I'm not a bimbo as one comment mentioned. I have a Master's Degree in Nursing and a BA in English and Literature. I'm also a freelance writer who has been published several times. I can't imagine anyone judging someone simply based on their name. I think it says a lot about the person who is doing the judging and it's not saying anything good.

*as a first name, not a nickname.

I don't like Cindy as a nickname for Cynthia. It has nothing in common with this name. For Lucinda it's okay, I think.

I'm a Cindy, short for Lucinda, and "Cindy" was a fairly popular name in my age group. There were 4 other Cindy's in my class during high school (late '70's), then I rarely met another Cindy for 20 odd years, only to begin working in an office with another cluster of Cindy's spelled a variety of ways - Cendi, Cindy, Cyndy, etc., again around my age, + or - 5 years. Some were nicknames, one wasn't.

Cindy is a really cute name. It's hardly used these days. You can't go wrong with this name. Would love to see a revival of this sweet name. :)

I am named Cindy, and I am changing this name. It is too casual, cute-sy, and unsophisticated. I actually despise both Cynthia and Lucinda for similar and other reasons, but I wasn't given either of those names--just Cindy. It conjures up images of some teenage farm girl in the 50's pining for a husband, or some fun-in-the-sun floozy, or the youngest one in curls on the Brady Bunch. I went from being neutral about my name as a child and teenager to feeling entirely detached from it for the last ten years. If you expect your daughter to be an adult who is admired and respected, please do not name her Cindy.

My name is Cindy, not shortened from anything else (although I wish it was Cinderella as that would be hilarious!). I absolutely love it. It's unusual here in the UK but not so much that people can't say or spell it, but I have never met another one face to face. I'm always the only Cindy everywhere I go or work, which means I never need to use my surname. It's a lovely name for a sophisticated, businesswoman with three sons, who plays sports and bakes cakes. I am both admired and respected, as are Cindy Crawford, Cindy Lauper and Cindy Miles the author. I don't agree with the way the previous Cindy feels about this name. It's a great name for girls and not easily shortened either.

Fist of all Cindy is not related to Cynthia. Sindy is a common usage of the name Cindy in Great Britain. The name really does not have a relation with the name Cynthia. It is common error given by Cynthias who prefer to be called Cindy. The name Cindy it comes from the word "Cinder" wich means ashes. An example of this application is Cindyrella, called that way because she was used to be filled with ash for sleeping by the fireplace. Therefore Cindy, I like to say means "who comes from the ashes".

Cynthia is one of those names that, although I really like it, I would never use because I can't stand the common nickname for it, Cindy. Making Cindy out of Cynthia is a crime, in my opinion. Cynthia is classical, but Cindy seems so insubstantial and bimbo-ish.

In my opinion there are too many ways to spell this name (Cindy, Cindi, Cyndi etc.) Plus I don't really like the name Cynthia which is where Cindy usually comes from.

I used to know a Lucinda who used Cindy as a nickname instead of Lucy, which would not have suited her.

The name sounds like a snobby cheerleader, unserious, and unsophisticated. Although it sounds okay, it is lacking in being taken seriously.

Also, the impression I get on the name Cindy, is that it lacks what most people want to find in a person, and it lacks notification for such a common name.

Cindy, what a wonderful name. I don't really need much to be reminded of my love, Cindy, because she is always present in my mind, but it's always nice to read her name, hear it pronounced or to just think of it. Cin-dy. The sound of that name flows from my lips...and I smile.
Cindy: the one who is always as near to me as my heart, for she owns a piece of it. If I place my hand on my chest, close my eyes and think the name Cindy, I see her...and I smile.
