This is a stupid name that only fits a dog. What if your child gets a serious depression?
― Anonymous User  12/8/2005
Picture an eighty-year old woman with this name. Still like it?

Ew. Come on, people. That's like naming your child Depressed.
Riley115  1/30/2006
I would NEVER name a child with this name. Not only it's a too common word, it just sounds plain bad for a name.
angelsariel  2/28/2006
I typed Happy into the search engine as a joke. Can't believe something actually came up.
kittyjones  3/30/2006
The stupidest name I have ever seen, and that's saying something.
websurfer  5/27/2006
This name just makes me think of a sleazy used-car salesman. It's tacky as all hell.
― Anonymous User  6/14/2006
I agree, I would never name any one by this. I mean come on, what if your child is one day is sad what will you ask him or her "Hey Happy, are you sad"? So dumb to name your child this! Heres' some advice: NEVER NAME A CHILD BY THIS NAME!

The name Happy is also the Americanized version of the arabic name Habib. Many of the Lebanese immigrants that moved to the US at the turn of the 20th century ended up with the first name of Happy thanks to the folks at Ellis Island.

Name of famous MIT researcher Happy Acee III. One of the preeminent experts on nano technology and also a decendent of Lebanese immigrants.

Don't name your child this, because if you did, people would think you were getting "happy" off of something when you had your precious Happy.

In Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman, a main character is named Happy.
eostre  8/3/2006
Hey! My name is Happy! And I hate it! I would like something better like Melanie.
― Anonymous User  8/12/2006
Are some parents desperate for a name or hoping that their child will be merry and bright? In either case, it's pathetic. Even as a pet's name, it's ridiculously undignified and smarmy. There are many ways to make your child happy, but naming them happy is not going to do that. If they end up depressed from being teased so much, don't come crying to me.

Are you freakin' kiddin' me?! This isn't a name for heaven's sake.
audreyhubley  10/13/2006
I would feel really bad for you if that was your name!
murtagh  10/23/2006
Although this name might have been accepted in society in the 19th century, nowadays, your child might be ridiculed. If you find yourself liking the meaning of this name, I suggest the names "Felicity" or "Hilary," both names with the same meaning. But this is simply personal opinion.
wordybookworm  11/24/2006
A TOTAL hippie name.
libbygirl  12/19/2006
I agree, this is NOT a nice name, despite the meaning. It just doesn't sound like a name at all. No one would take you seriously. Joy is definitely a more humane choice.
scarletquillraven  12/25/2006
"Hi I'm Happy, and you are"? Uhm no, that is not going to go over well at all! Do your kid a favor and do not name them this.
x3ThatGurlAmberx3  3/25/2007
My best mate we sometimes call Happy. Her name is Haphra so you can see where we get that nickname from. It's ok I suppose in a way for a nickname but definitely NOT a first name.
Luangi  4/6/2007
It would be funny if the person called Happy was really moody & grumpy. I can just imagine it lol. :P
ClaireCFC  4/8/2007
Yes, and his/her twin could be Smile! What a great idea! I really can't imagine what kind of parents would name their kid Happy. I mean, it's a nice word and everything, but Happy?
Yippal  4/9/2007
This name isn't fit for a dog; it's better for a clown, along with Silly and Bobo!
flamestar  5/13/2007
Umh, I love the word and all, since you know, being happy IS a good thing. But as a name, it's horrible. I mean, the poor kid's going to have to live up to being "Happy" or something. And I agree with the people that said it's like naming your child a different "mood" word. It's like naming the kid "Sad" or something. So, as a name, NO.
sidewalkxlines  6/23/2007
I used to have two fish named Happy and Funny, they both died within weeks (not my fault). My point is, if you like this name, use it on a pet. And if you really want to name your kid Happy, then give him a normal name and nickname him Happy, he'll thank you for it.
renee06  8/28/2007
Somehow I think a person with this name would end up depressed and commit suicide by age 14. The name is utterly ridiculous and infantile, and no one with the name would be taken seriously. The jokes would never end.
slight night shiver  4/23/2008
This name is SO funny! I hate it, but I love it!

Baby New Year in that One Rudolph movie Was nicknamed Happy. (As in Happy New Year).
AudioXVampire  6/21/2008
A good name for a clown.
number1212  9/12/2008
What the heck kind of name is 'Happy'?
diamondberries  10/7/2008
Imagine introducing yourself, which is the worst part of having such a stupid name.
Hushpuppy  10/29/2008
What an ugly name, it reminds me of an old woman with a knitting obsession who get enough of sumo wrestling.
marythenamefairy  11/2/2008
What makes this any worse than Joy? I hate them both, but a lot of people love the name Joy. It's basically the same, one is just more popularized.
DISK  11/16/2008
"Happy" is definitely not a name!
― Anonymous User  11/18/2008
Someone named Happy won't be taken seriously. A Happy might also turn out to be anything but happy. A lot of vocabulary words as names are corny, but this one in particular.
bananarama  3/25/2009
It's spelt correctly and it has a nice meaning. I don't endorse it, but there are worse names.
vomiting  6/19/2009
Happy? This is not a name, it's a word! The teasing would never end for a child that has this name.
-Julia-  8/21/2009
Guilty pleasure for me. I adore it for a girl.
enchy  8/31/2009
This is ridiculous.
Heck, I wouldn't name anything Happy. Not my pet, my kid, my character, no one. Maybe as a nickname. As a joke.
yael5012_y  9/10/2009
My great grandmother's name. While I probably wouldn't use it, I like it better than Faith or Hope - instead of being a "virtue" - it just is. I also prefer it over April or Summer and many other word names.
― Anonymous User  10/4/2009
Happy? Are you kidding me? No one's happy all the time, especially during adolescence. Imagine your 16 year-old daughter named Happy. What if she's an emo chick? Or a skater? Or anything else besides a hippie? The teasing would never end. And now imagine when she's 25- going on her first formal job interview. "Hello. My name is Happy Jones." Yeah, she's going to get taken seriously.

What a joke. What a WORD.
There are worse names. Though this isn't much of a name.
lucyskydiamonds  1/11/2010
Happy?! What kind of name is Happy?! Well I guess I shouldn't be too shocked considering these days ANYTHING can be name.
starz26  4/30/2010
The kid will be anything but happy to bear this name.
Black_X  5/10/2010
Bessie from "The Mighty Bee" named her dog Happy because she thought he was "Happy". He was anything but Happy.
otis9191  1/29/2011
I'm not bothered by the meaning (a grumpy Happy would actually be hilarious in a good way), but it doesn't sound like a proper name. How about Bonnie, Blythe, Joy or Merry?
Louska  2/21/2011
I love the name Happy, don't know why but it reminds me of someone who is um happy!
Happytheclown  3/1/2011
I'm sure there are parents out there who love this name but this is not a name I would ever consider using. It might sound cheerful but I doubt the child bearing it would happily accept it.
Missy  4/3/2011
Oh wow this is a name?!
Joy12  5/3/2011
I woke up this morning, the sunshine was shining I put on my HAPPY face. Why would you name your child a feeling? What if they cry? Watch when they get teased. And on their birthday! HAPPPYY BIIRTHDAAY DEAR HHHAAAPPPPPPPY. No, that's rubbish and a funeral for Happy will be sad :'( we are gathered here today to witness the death of HAPPY. (we didn't kill her no worries)
― Anonymous User  1/31/2012
One of the worst names I've come across. The "P" sound makes the name sound juvenile. Plus, as others have pointed out, someone named "Happy" will probably be teased.
Annelle  1/22/2013
Weird and if you name someone that, who knows if that person will actually be unhappy?
cookiefonster1015  4/8/2013
I don't understand why everyone is giving this name so much shit. I like it. It may not be MY name, but I don't dislike it. My neighbors kids are named Happy(14) and Destiny(12), and it fits them perfectly. And not once have I seen them get teased or made fun of because of their names.
― Anonymous User  5/14/2013
I understand the point of view of the latest poster, but I totally share one of the others: I don't think it should be a name. Joy is A LOT better to my mind. Oh, and Blythe is very nice.
Skylar_Arianna  6/7/2013
If you want to name your child this, go ahead. Don't let other people tell you what to do.
My opinion: The name is a bit silly, sounds nice though.
Gio123  9/27/2013
I think it makes a beautiful middle name and I love it as a name, but I agree that it might be a bit much, or very ironic for a first name (imagine when they cry: 'Happy, don't be sad.').
Nooshi  8/8/2014
I think you guys are really misinformed! It's a beautiful old name that has so much character when understood in the proper context of its history. I love it.

My name is Happy and I HATE it. You guys are right about the name being stupid.

This is the nickname of Harold Joseph Hogan, friend and ally of Tony Stark aka Iron Man in Marvel Comics and adaptations.
Feorsteorra  6/16/2015
Sounds more like a nickname than a given name, and it reminds me of that annoying, overplayed Pharrell Williams song.
Buneary  9/3/2015
My name is Happy and it really does suck. People are always asking me "why is your name Happy when you're always sad" even teachers makes fun of my name. I get really annoyed when people tell me to be Happy just because my name is Happy. Honestly, if you're thinking about naming your child this name please stop and think about what the child would have to deal with in the future.

Happy Jele is a South African a football (soccer) defender for Orlando Pirates in the Premier Soccer League.
lilolaf  6/10/2016
Might be cute when the kid is in first grade or so, but later on in life you will realize that you have tortured your child.
Sania01  7/22/2016
The fact that Happy is a legit name, apparently, leaves me feeling slightly annoyed and confused. I'm not Happy with Happy as a name. It just sounds ridiculous and moronic.
― Anonymous User  3/31/2017
Who would name their child this?!
― Anonymous User  6/5/2017
Why are you all making fun of this name? This is my name, but I go by my surname (River). Personally, I LOVE this name! I am half native American, and I was named for an old legend (Happy River) so stop giving me all this crap about my name.
― Anonymous User  11/14/2017
Actually, I like this name. It does sound juvenile, but I can picture it well on a tomboyish, friendly, helpful girl. It could also work as a diminutive of Hephzibah or Harper.
cdawg  12/16/2017
Ummm, when I think Happy I think that awesome blue flying cat from Fairy Tail, who talks, so I think Happy is a pretty cool name, but not for a human...
AnimePsycho23  2/6/2018
My friend's neighbor's dog was named Happy and I think it is simply adorable. He's always got this sweet and friendly expression on his face.
But, really, why do you people dislike this name so much? I know it might cause the kid to be teased, but they can also just end up being positive and friendly people who completely fit their name.
