I've always seen the meaning of Faye to be "a little fairy" or just "fairy" in general.

There is a novelist named Faye Kellerman.

I love the name Faye, I think it's so gorgeous. It's a great middle name too. Like Audrey Faye. I think it sounds so elegant! It also reminds me of Faye Dunaway, and then it reminds me of Joan Crawford since she played her in Mommie Dearest. Otherwise, I think it's cute.

Pretty, much better than the spelling Fay.

Sort of a famous bearer: Faye Tourney, British soldier who was held in Iran.

My daughter's middle name is Faye and she absolutely loves it. She says when she becomes famous, she'll drop her surname and only use her first and middle. LOL.

I think this name is really cute. I used it for a character in one of my many stories!

Faye is a special name to me, not only is it my middle name (Amanda Faye) but also my mom's and my late grandmother's. The French meaning is fairy, the Irish-Gealic meaning is raven. I even went by Faye for a few years because of how common my first name is. I love the name, it just has a sweet southern sound to it.

Chinese singer Faye Wong is a famous bearer.

The character Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bebop is a famous bearer.

This isn't a bad one-syllable name, but it has rather been ruined by all the associations to dimwitted trailer trash and country girls, for whom this is a very common middle name.

Huh. I really like this name WITH an E than without.

I believe there was a woman named Faye (or maybe Fay) Fuller, I think her last name was, who climbed Mt. Rainier and became very famous as the first woman to attempt such a *gasp* scandalous thing. Morgan le Fey (or Fay, if you prefer) was also a famous, if mythical, bearer of the name.

Faye with an "e" is also my middle name, and while I didn't care for it as a child, I love it now. Mine derives from women on both sides of my family, and I think it is beautiful, both in meaning and sound. It works well as a middle name in many cases. I like the added "e."

This is a name that a girl could grow into as she gets older. I definitely don't associate it with country girls. Must be a dumb British thing.

Faye is just the softest sounding name that there is.
-- vomiting  2/14/2011
This sounds weird, but I prefer this as a boys name.
-- FlakyMatt  4/24/2011
I like it for boys, too. It's usually spelled for boys as Fay.

The name Faye was given to 230 baby girls in the US in 2012. It's a very sweet name :)
-- Oohvintage  7/16/2013
I really hate this spelling. Fae looks much better in my opinion.
-- Anonymous User  2/3/2015
This is a soft, sweet name and looks prettier in my honest opinion than Fay, which is also nice. I had a lovely friend at college named Faye and I particularly like it as a middle name.

Faye is one of my all time favorites. It is such a gorgeous name! It can be used as a first name, or middle name. Sounds great either way. It also reminds me of the tv show "The Secret Circle" where Phoebe Tonkin plays the character Faye. She's a rebel in the show, so she has the perfect name! Faye is like a rebellious name, but still an awesome name.

If you're reading these comments to decide weather or not to name you're child this, stop. Who gives a flying fuck what other people think. Chose the name if you like it, not if other people like it! XD.

I love my name Faye. It is a strong independent name, which can stand alone or joined with another name to give uniqueness to who you are.
-- Shrinda Faye  9/29/2015
I think "Fae" is cuter than Faye and Fay.
-- lilolaf  2/21/2016
My name is Faye and I love my name because it just fits me perfectly. The name Faye is absolutely beautiful for your child. I am so glad that I have such a unique name, thank you Mom.

I'm really starting to admire this name and recently, I've been thinking about using it as a middle name if I ever had a daughter to honor my mother, whose middle name just so happens to be this. Hers is spelled as Fay but Faye is my preferred spelling :D.

I have enjoyed my first name of Faye and several people have told me what an attractive and feminine name it is. I also have a young niece who has it as her middle name and another little one with Faye as her first name... so I guess it is popular with my family. My husband likes it very much... it isn't trendy but it is a little different.
