There were at least 3 Debbies in my high school. Many girls growing up in the 50s were named after Debbie Reynolds, an American actress whose daughter was Carrie Fisher of Star Wars fame.
One Debbie I knew became a medical doctor. The other two I lost touch with. None of them were frumpy or overweight. Can't judge people you don't know based on their name alone.

There were 5 girls named Debbie or Debra in my high school. We were born in the 50s, when many were named after Debbie Reynolds. One Debbie was a cheerleader, one was my best friend.

My name is Deborah Jane... I prefer being called Debbie, and I don't think I'm frumpy, or stuck in a different era! I love my name.

I've known a lot of Debbie's. Almost always very likeable but a bit on the frumpy side.

Too cold and square sounding, I think. Maybe a little like Emma, IMO.

The fact that Debbie is a nickname and not a proper name is about the only thing that stops me from truly hating it. It's so commonly taken over Deborah that you wouldn't even know the full name existed. Whenever I think of people who are called Debbie, I just want to yell at them to change their name to something else.

Is it wrong of me to think of "Debbie Does Dallas" upon hearing this name?

Reminds me of Little Debbie, the snacks that you find at the grocery store. But other than that the name's ok. (:

I totally agree. I once had a friend called Debbie, who looked like someone from another decade when she dressed up on stage.

Ugh, I hate this nickname. It makes me think of ditzy girls from the 80s and middle-aged women who have horrible hairstyles and clothes.

I really like the name Debbie, I think it is a lot better than Deborah/Debra. I think names like Jane or Jean would make for a wonderful middle name for Debbie.

There's a song by a band called "sugarcult" called Debbie. It's kinda funny. The first line of the song says "Debbie was a lesbian yesterday".
