This is such a pretty name, but in my mind would only suit a girl that was small and petite.

I like the spelling "Faie" so much better!

I really like this name. I think it sounds so earthy and natural and is very uncommon. It's a nice middle name too.

It's such a beautiful name, but I wouldn't it as a name because of the invetiable Fay is gay immaturity.

Honestly I hate this name as a first name. But I love it as a middle name. My name is Katelynn Fay and I think it goes good just I couldn't imagine a girl named Fay.

I think it's a cool name. I think I'd rather use it In the middle spot, though.

This is my middle name, and I love it much more then my first name. :) I'm tempted to start introducing myself as Fay but that might get confusing. :/

It's an okayish, short sounding name but I suppose the meaning is cute. Fay is far too simple and doesn't suit my taste, however. Tips: I would veto against the spelling "Fey" as it actually means “fated to die"! Also, be aware that the "Fae" spelling honestly looks kinda trendy and trashy. :/ In my opinion, the other variant "Faye" doesn't do the name any justice as it's a short sounding name no matter what (I would leave the unnecessary 'e' out).
