Famous Bearer
Personal Impression
It's my name and I personally love it. To me, it is a youthful name which is fitting for me as at 32 I still get asked for ID to prove I'm over 18. I am far from spoiled, bratty or cheerleader like. I'm a brunette who loves books and nature and very much the opposite of superficial.
The name means "worthy of love" (Latin) which I think is beautiful.

In 2018, 32 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Mandy* who is registered female with the Social Security Administration. It is the 965th most common female first name for living U.S. citizens.

*as a first name, not a nickname.

I just think of a spoiled and bratty teenage girl when I hear this name.

This is my name and honestly, I love it. No, I don't have blonde hair. No, I'm not a cheerleader. No, I'm not a bully (I get bullied by others). I am a tomboy, not girly. I don't get HOW you get that. Think about it: The name Mandy has MAN in it. Why would someone called Mandy bully when they are already bullied?

Mandy is a character in the TV series Totally Spies!. She is Sam, Alex, and Clover's rival. Impressively, she is voiced by the same person who voices Sam, Jennifer Hale.

Just can't seem to get over that it has the word "MAN" in it.. absolutely ugly name and sounds too masculine to be a female name.

My name is Mandy not Amanda or Miranda and I love my name. I am blonde, don't have dizzy best friends, was not popular in school. I don't use the word like a lot. My name isn't the best or most unique but it's a nice name I did get laughed at a lot being called Man and Mandie. But my name is a good name. Don't try and cling a personality to a name. Everyone's different.

It's a nice name. I prefer Mandie though.

The name Mandy was given to 69 girls born in the US in 2015.

My legal name is Amanda but I have been called Mandy my entire life. And some of the comments people have made regarding the name Mandy are just rude & stereotyping. I've encountered all types of Mandy's & Amanda's in my life and all have unique personalities and are different as each of us are. Very sad to place such a stereotype on a name.

My first name is Amanda, although I've been called Mandee as long as I can remember. I hate being called Amanda, mostly because of how common it is. I've personally never met another Mandee (Mandy.)

Mandy can also be a nickname for Miranda.

Sorry to be such a hater, but I can't stand the name/nickname Mandy. One, it's youthful, and two, I just find it ugly. Maaaaandy. Ick. If you want, name your child Amanda and call her Manda. At the most Mandi or something. But Mandy... it just sounds too... dumb. And please don't name your child Mandy! Alternate spellings (Mandi, Mandee, etc) are useful too you know!

I think this is a really cute nickname for the name Amanda.

I just LOVE that name. Everyone with that name is amazing and the name is SO beautiful.

I've been calling my best friend Amanda this since we knew each other (for about twelve years, then, since we were two!) and it works well for her. I think it's a nice nickname or Christian name. Either works well, I think.
MeMyselfAndEye  1/14/2010
My wife's name is Mandy and I think it's a prettiest name ever! Naturally, Amanda too.

I like Mandy better than Amanda to be honest. Mandy was the name of Miley Cyrus's best friend.
crushcrushcrush  9/16/2008
Mandy is the name of my friend. But the thing is, that her real name is not Amanda. So Mandy can also be used as a real name.
nadiaxox  7/2/2008
Too girly. Should not be used as the official name, and would be better left out of usage by the time the bearer is 20 or so.

Mandy Brocklehurst is a character in the Harry Potter series, although she is only mentioned in the Sorting Ceremony.

It can also be pronounced MAN-die.

My name is Amanda and until I was 14, I was called Mandy. I really prefer Amanda, or the alternate spelling of Mandy; Mandie.
Hato-chan  12/12/2007
Could be a short form of Miranda.

I think it's the cutest name! It can be serious or just really cute and really reminds me of a fun, bubbly person. At first I HATED this name, but now it's like the cutest name ever. And I know a really nice person named Mandy and she does not have blonde hair and would never dream of cheerleading (because I'm not in a place that does that) and always is caring.
― Anonymous User  2/26/2007
I can only think of that "Evil Bratty Cheerleader"-type character (blond, loves make-up and fashion, most popular girl in school, enjoys the suffering of others, sometimes not very intelligent and uses the word "like" excessively) that normally has this kind of a name, with two other best friends that have similar-rhyming names.

I'm sure most Mandys aren't like that, but that is the impression I get from the name. However, I get a completely different impression from the name "Amanda," probably thanks to Amanda Bynes, but I haven't met a redeeming Mandy character (or person for that matter, I haven't met any Mandys).

It is one of my friend Mandeep's nicknames, she is a pretty British-Asian social butterfly.

I find it really ugly.

Urgh... I like Amanda better.

This is one of my favourite names. I think it sounds cute, yet serious. I'll probably call one of my children this when I'm older.

I think it is not a very beautiful name, but the meaning of it is great.

This is a very beautiful name, you are so wrong about that!
