Comments for GABBY:

I love the name Gabby but there are so many ways to spell it such as Gaby, Gabie and more. I think it is the cutest name for a little girl and when she grew up it would still fit her. Overall I love that name!

The word gabby means "talkative."

It's cute, especially for a nickname. Gabby could be a nickname for Gabriela, Gabriella or Gabrielle. Gabby suits females more than males.

My name is Gabestellia. But since it is so long, Gabby is my nickname.

I hate the name/nickname Gabby. It sounds like a goose that won't stop talking.

There was a girl named "Gabrielle" in my school when I was growing up. She NEVER stopped TALKING, and it wasn't very nice things that she was saying most of the time. Which is why when we all found out (in fourth grade) that "Gabby" was a synonym for "talkative", she became forever "Gabby". Even the teachers called her that jokingly, because she'd interrupt class for ridiculous questions or to insult them, so it was as a semi-retort to her.

That's why I can't see this as a serious, or kind, full name for a child.

My name is Gabrielle and I just hate that name! It sounds way too sophisticated. Gabby however sounds like Gabrielle's polar opposite. It sounds so happy and cheerful and carefree. That's why I go by Gabby. And it sounds really British, too. I can imagine some English fellow saying "Ello Gubby! Lovely day today, isn't Gubby?"

I have to admit, Gabby sounds kinds cute when you hear a British person said 'Gubby'.

It's the sort of adjective sexist people, and this can and does often include women, use to describe women and girls who talk too much, or ''too much'' in their opinion anyway, as they rather prefer females to remain silent altogether. Not a nice thing to call your daughter. The name is very girly and immature, and guys named Gabriel should be called Gabe instead. The nickname sounds very ugly anyway.

Even though I love the name Gabriela, I hate this nickname!
-- nicole_10107  10/1/2009
I hate this name. It sounds whiny and annoying.

Yucky yuck yuck. I don't like this nickname.
-- Chrila96  10/9/2010
Gabrielle sounds mature and beautiful; Gabby sounds infantile and rather insulting (she's so gabby!). I'd rather use Bree as a nickname.

Gaby, Gabbi, Gabbie, Gabi.
Nickname for Gabriella Gabrielle or Gabriel.

How about ellie for Gabrielle instead? And if you called a boy named Gabriel Gabby, (which doesn't really make sense since its "gay-briel" and Gabby has the short I sound like the word at) he'd probably get made fun of. It doesn't really sound cute on a girl or a boy.

Gabby was given to 48 baby girls born in the US in 2012 as a full name.

When I was younger I used to like the name Gabrielle, but not Gabby... and now, I hate both. The "Gab-" is what gets me, I think; it is such an unattractive, curdled, childish sound. Although, I don't feel the same repulsion over Gabriel-- in fact, masculine Gabriel(e) is one of my favorite names.
It appears that some of the others have covered the negative association one will walk with if called "Gabby," how it will always be associated with a talkative, gossipy, stereotypical "foolish" motormouthed girl.

Sounds trashy, fugly, immature and stupid.

Hey all... I'm a Gabby, (actually a Gabriela, but I'm usually called Gabby and have always been called Gabby) and some of these comments are just downright rude. Yes, I admit, sometimes I wish I could not go by Gabby, (or maybe change the spelling of my nickname, even though there wouldn't be much point in that - it still sounds the same as the act. Word) but I've always gone by it because others called me it, so why change it now? It sounds kind of cute and all, but I have SM (selective mutism) and do not talk much around others at all, so that doesn't help the situation! I didn't choose to go by Gabby, I was just always called that. Also, in my opinion, Gabby could still work as a full name as if you were gabrielle/gabriel(l)a you would most likely go as Gabby as well. I didn't choose this name, my parents did. If I had the choice would I change it to one of the other thousands of, in my opinion, better-fitting names out there? Probably. But, some people like this name I'm sure and I'm so sick of all of these stereotypes of dumb or "popular" cheerleaders that talk too much. Yes, it isn't nice having a common name, (i've known 28 others in my life) that isn't the best, but I still would like to think that my name isn't the WORST thing out there. You should stop insulting the names that people were given, because even if it's #1 in a country, it's still probably special to them and no one likes being insulted for something that they LIKE or cannot help. A name is part of your life, and you shouldn't have to be ridiculed for liking a name and especially not for HAVING a name. I'm not any of the things that these other hurtful comments said... some people are so judgmental. Just because you've met or known of someone like that, doesn't mean that we're all like that. Please, just stop being so hateful!
