Comments for FAE:

What a unique and pretty middle name. My best friend in elementary school had it as a middle name, and so did her mother. It was a family tradition, so that each little girl could think of herself as a fairy.

I find this name wonderfully elegant- mainly because it is my nickname; my real name is Fahara: though I don't quite know where my mom pulled it from. Fae is what most call me and I stick to that like glue.

In Gregory McGuire's novel Wicked, Fae is Elphaba's code name.

I think "Fae" also means fairy in French.

Personally, I prefer this spelling over all the others. When you take out the "y" and just have "Fae" it seems so much more magical.

Note: Currently, my favorite name is Fae (hopefully this doesn't change anytime soon). However, I used to want to be "different" and have the spelling be Fey--until I read that in British slang/idiomatic language (particularly Scottish), to say that something was "fey" meant that it was doomed to die. So I had to change the spelling! :-)

In the 1800s, up through the 30s and 40s, at least in America, [more in the southern areas] "Fae" was often modified to a somewhat popular girl's name which may sound strange to people now but which I still like- Willie Fae. [Sometimes spelled with a dash, sometimes not].

[In "A Christmas After All: The Great Depression Diary Of Minnie Swift" {the author was not credited as it was supposed to be a diary, } The orpahn cousin taken in the hight of the depression by the Swifts, from the south, is named Willie Fae.]

I really like this name. It has a fairy tale quality to it. This spelling in particular is used in fantasy and fiction and is often used for elves and fairies.

It can also provide a great first or middle name. As a middle name it can practically go with any name.
