Lindsay is a beautiful, purely feminine name and I am sad that it is unisex.

I think 'Lindsay' is prettier for a girl than a boy.
-- Tbird  7/14/2005
My name is Lindsay, and I pronounce it LindsAy, with the "a" sound. Many people do so these days.
-- Isabeau  7/25/2005
Well, you may pronounce it with "ay" at the end, but it's not correct. It's pronounced the same as Lindsey.

My sister's name is Lindsay after my grandmother Linda (although the two names are unrelated). She likes it and I don't hate it. I met a little boy named Lindsay once! Poor thing.
-- SeaHorse15  1/2/2006
I would not feel sorry for a little boy with this name; in fact, I think it's great as a masculine name. Lindsay Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac is one famous male bearer of the name.

Famous bearer is Lindsay Wagner, an American actress.

This is my name and I hate it (though I wouldn't mind it for other people)! Everyone's always asking me how to spell it, and most of the spellings they give me are quite ludicrous. "Is it spelled "L-Y-N-Z-Y or L-I-N-S-Y?" I just tell them that it's spelled like this: "Lind-SAY". I wish my name were something simple, like Rachel or Anne. UGH!

(btw, my parents named me after Lindsay Wagner)

My name is LYNSEY (female) and I think it is such a shame it is unisex name. Nothing about it sounds masculine. The only trouble is people constantly get the spelling wrong!
-- Anonymous User  4/26/2006
I don't feel that it's NOT masculine, but it's become a girls name by majority.
I'm not a particular fan of Lindsay Lohan, only her younger works, but lately she's become not so cool. (I didn't know how to word that.) Thus to some people it has tainted the name.

Lindsay was popular for males before it was "hijacked."
-- Mithos514  7/19/2006
On rare occasions, Lindsay is used as a boys name, example being Lindsay Buckingham.
-- Hailey2006  7/26/2006
Lindsey Graham, a male senator of South Carolina, bears this name.
-- jess17  8/2/2006
I'm a guy, my legal name isn't Lindsay, but I like to go by it. Maybe someday I'll get around to officially changing my name to Lindsay. It's a perfectly acceptable boy's name.
-- Lindsay995  8/7/2006
It reminds me of linnsey-woolsey, a type of cloth combining linen and wool. So, I don't like this name too much.
-- xKatiex  10/1/2006
I HATE this spelling of Lindsay. LindsEy is WAY, WAY, WAY more prettier. I think of Lindsay as (lind-ZAY). I LOVE the name Lindsey, but HATE the name Lindsay. (I know they are pronounced the same!)
-- libbygirl  10/2/2006
Lindsay is a pretty name for a girl, I do prefer the spelling Lindsey though.
-- Anonymous User  10/29/2006
This spelling of the name drives me absolutely crrrrraaaaazzzyyyyy!
-- libbygirl  11/20/2006
Lindsay C. and Lindsay S. are Deal or No Deal models on NBC.
-- Taydbug112  12/15/2006
Excuse me, but most of these 'Unisex' names, started off as guys names in the first place, or even last names. Take Ashley for instance, say someone was called John Ashley, then John Ashley's daughter had a son, and wanted to honour her father, so the kid would be called Ashley, then it evolved into a proper name. Then, someone went 'Lets be totally rebelious and name our little girl Ashley', then it just caught on.

So Lindsay, was a surname, then a guys name, then FINALLY a girls name, so I do not think there is any reason to be ashamed of if you are a boy and are called Lindsey, really, the girls should be a little worried, imagine calling your little girl John!

The character on CSI:New York is Lindsay Monroe played by Anna Belknap.
-- Gianna  1/14/2007
I love this name, but I prefer spelling it Linzee. Much more unique and easier to spell. This is one of my favorite names, so going to be my daughter's name.
-- JoeyForever  2/11/2007
Lindsay was the 2001 Girl of the Year for American Girl. She was the first Girl of the Year.

My name is Lindsay Buckingham. I am a girl and my parents didn't realize that they had named my after a famous MALE Lindsay Buckingham. I still think the name is prettier on me.

The main character of the Womans Murder Club, a book series by James Patterson, is Lindsay Boxer. She is tough, yet sweet, quiet, yet ambitious. She is the lieutenant of San Franciso.
-- spaz123  6/9/2007
I think this is definitely a girl's name, and any boy named this would be teased non-stop. I don't like it spelled Lindsay, because that's not how the name is usually pronounced. I like the Lindsey spelling better. Also, this is probably, I think, the most misspelled name ever. But anyways, this name is really nice and pretty.
-- Anonymous User  6/15/2007
My name is spelled Lyndsey. I love my name but I can't stand it when people spell it wrong. (Lindsey, Lindsay, Lyndsay, Lynzey, Lynzay, Linzey, Linzay, Lyndzey, Lyndzay, Lindzey, Lindzay.)

Means linden tree by the water. Also spelled, Lindsei, Lindsai, Lyndsai, Lyndsei, Lynsei, Lynsai, Linsai, Linsei, Linzei, Linzai, Lynzei, and Lynzai.

Another one that puzzled me when it started becoming popular because I just don't see the appeal of it. I do think it sounds more feminine than masculine, though. I know a Lindsay whose mother wanted to name her Alexis but her father didn't like that so they settled on Lindsay. If I were her I'd be pretty upset with my father.
-- queenv  9/30/2007
This is my name but it's spelt Lynsey because my parents prefered it that way. I sometimes spell it as Lindsay because I think it looks much prettier. This spelling is also the proper Scottish spelling which I also love, my great-grandmother was Scottish and her surname was Lindsay (which is who I am named after).
-- Lynsey777  1/3/2008
This is my name. I spell it Lindsay, but I think it is shorter and easier to spell it Linzy, so on all my informal papers I write it that way. I do agree that people mispronounce and misspell it all the time like at school most of the teachers spell it Lindsey and I get very OCD about it and have to tell them the right way to spell it! But over all I really like my name and it goes really well with my middle name (Lindsay Nicole).
-- greysfan08  1/29/2008
This name sounds strictly feminine to me. This is my favorite spelling of the name, and I think it's a nice enough name, as it doesn't sound too cutesy or girly. It suits little girls and women just fine. It's nothing great, but decent. Some people may think Lindsay Lohan has ruined it, but I'm not sure why people make such a big deal out of her lifestyle. I don't know her, and she may even be mean, but if the problem is the partying and sex, I can only wonder what else people expect a young, attractive, rich woman to do with her life.
-- slight night shiver  4/27/2008
It also can be spelled "Linze". Very exotic spelling of a common name.
-- Anonymous User  7/2/2008
I like the spelling of Lindsay better than Lindsey. Also, it's the name of one of my best friends.
-- Anonymous User  7/21/2008
It's a nice name, but I think it's been ruined because of Lindsay Lohan.
-- bananarama  8/5/2008
I like it spelled "Lindsay" better than "Lindsey". I think it's a pretty name and more feminine than masculine.
-- Anonymous User  1/23/2009
My friend's name is Lindsay and her name is pronounced as LindSAY with sound "a", not Linsy or Linzy. I think this way of pronunciation is better.
-- Anonymous User  8/26/2009
I prefer the Lindsey spelling in English and Linzi in Croatian. Lindsay looks like it should be pronounced LINN-say or LIND-say, not LIND-see or LINN-zee. I pronounce Lindsey LINN-zee, LINN-see, LIND-zee or LIND-see.
-- enchy  9/15/2009
I love how this name looks, but I will always think of Lindsay Lohan when I hear it (that poor girl).
-- Anonymous User  12/14/2009
I love the way Lindsay sounds, but I much prefer the spelling Lynsea (one I made up and added to this site).
-- erb816  12/15/2009
Yeah... my four-year-old comment about preferring the spelling Lynsea is pretty crazy. Let's just say my tastes have "matured" since then, and I vastly prefer Lindsay, which doesn't look like the person's parents named them using random Scrabble tiles. Still love the sound of the name, though, and definitely prefer it as a feminine name.
-- erb816  12/1/2013
This is by far my favourite spelling of this name, and it's the only one that looks "right" to me. Lindsey is also okay, but there are some truly AWFUL and cringe-worthy "kre8tiv" spellings of Lindsay out there.

I'm actually surprised to see how much this name has slid down the popularity charts in recent years. Although it's often grouped in with other 80s surnames turned girls' names like Britney, Whitney, Courtney, et al., this name has a far more feminine--and also a more classic--feel to it, in my opinion.
-- Anonymous User  2/20/2010
It's a nice enough name. Not the best, though. I do have a bit of a hard time imagining a grown woman by the name of Lindsay. If I were to ever use it on a kid, I'd name her Linda and nickname her Lindsay.
-- Black_X  5/29/2010
I think this is actually a quite pretty name.
-- Chrila96  9/20/2010
Lindsay's okay, but in my opinion it's kind of one of those modern generic names. Lindsay, Courtney, Ashley... It IS pretty, but I guess it just rubs me the wrong way.
-- GirlWithN0Name  2/8/2011
This is much better in its original form as a male name, nothing about it seems feminine really.

I loled because all the "Common" girl names you listed are actually male names.
-- FlakyMatt  5/17/2011
I think this spelling looks more mature than Lindsey.
-- Christina Rose  6/23/2011

Lindsay Ellingson is a gorgeous American model.
-- Anonymous User  12/12/2011
In my opinion Lindsay will always be a masculine name, but then of course it got taken over by girls just like all other male names (Ashley, Cameron, Taylor, Hayden...) Why give your daughter a masculine name when there are thousands of girly names you can call them?
-- Anonymous User  1/9/2012
Lindsay is my first name. I have spent my entire life spelling out my name to be sure that people have it correct on paperwork or whatever. Quite tiring.

The name was tacked on to my middle name Dayle because it sounded good together. There really wasn't any important meaning for me being given this name.

I went to a very small school and shared the name with a large portion of other girls named Lindsay (all spelled differently except for the one girl that actually looked like me; creepy), and so for a long time I distanced myself from the name. A teacher would call roll and get to "Lindsay" and I would double check that they were meaning me (even into college, I'm finding I have classes with other Lindsay's). I've come to feel that this name does not suit me and that I want to give myself a more unique name. Like Sunny. :)

I do agree it is a very pretty name, very feminine, and fits in with the Ashley, Haley, etc. Type of names. I also think it is an interesting choice for a boy. I don't think it would be too bad as a male name. It sort of feels a bit vintage that way.
-- SunnyDayle  1/14/2012
I knew a guy called Lindsay and he wore it well, never was bullied (he WAS the bully) and never shortened it or had a nickname. Most people with this name are girls, my sister even has Lyndsay as her middle name - checks my parents trying to be cool and spell it with 2 Y's! - but then most Lindsay's I know never go by it, but rather Lindz or Lynn. Nowadays no name is specifically male/female.
-- Anonymous User  7/2/2012
I'm a girl and this is my middle name. Though I'd rather have it as my first, which is Aidan, but I like both of them.
I also think it's okay for a guy's name, it just sounds more feminine to me because it's mine :)

Bing Crosby had a son named Lindsay who preformed in the group The Crosby Boys with his brothers.
