Comments for MINDY:

My cousin's name is Mindy Marie. It isn't short for Melinda in her case.

If spelled "Mindi", it could serve as a nickname for the Yiddish name Mindel, which means "bitter".

The show "Mork and Mindy" comes to mind.

Mindy can also be a short name for Miranda, Minerva, Jasmin and a few others. But it suits more as a nickname for Miranda, definitely. But I don't really like it because it sounds too cutesy, like a name for a raggedy-ann doll or something.

Can be a nickname for Aminda.

The name Mindy also comes from the Indian word Minda which stands for knowledge. It's not just a nickname; it has its own meaning.

The first person who comes to mind is the amazing country singer Mindy Smith.

In the Teen Nick Show, "Drake and Josh" Mindy is the name of Josh's arch-nemises. Later they become boyfriend/girlfriend. She's very smart and clever.

Mindy McCready is a greatly talented country singer whose biggest hits are "Guys Do It All The Time" and "Ten Thousand Angels".

Mindy is my cousin's name and I personally don't like it or hate it; we mostly call her Cindy Lou because she always used to complain that she was the Cinderella around the house, doing all the work and whatnot. Almost everyone has "Lou" or some form of it in their nickname. No, we're not hillbillies.

Ugh, I don't like this name. It's not very pretty.

I don't think I would ever use this name myself. But other people might. It just seems like some one might tease her and call her, "Minty".

It's sort of cute, but too cute for a grown-up, and too cute as the official name. It doesn't sound very mature or serious. Besides, this was Leona Helmsley's middle name. Ugh!

This can also be used as a nickname for Amanda. I have a cousin named Amanda and we've called her Mindy since birth.

On the show 'Friends', this was the name of Rachel Greene's maid of honour in Rachel's wedding to Barry Farber (originally Barry Finkle). Mindy later married Barry (and subsequently divorced him) after Rachel left him at the altar.

Mindy could be short for Miranda.

Mindy can also be short for Amanda. Richard Hammond's wife, Amanda Ethreridge, is known as Mindy. Personally I adore Mindy, I think it's very sweet, and makes me think of a girl who's graceful, smiling and compassionate, but I don't like it as a full name on a birth certificate. It's a cute diminutive, and it should stay that way. For me, it's almost like giving her Paigie or Louisie or Minakins as a legal name. At least put Amanda or Miranda on her birth certificate, so she can have something to fall back on when she's an adult. You can still call her Mindy if her name is Amanda. Imagine a teacher bellowing "Mindy!" or the girl filling in a job application as "Mindy". Use Mindy as a nickname, just that.

Mindy is a nickname for Miranda too. I knew a couple Miranda's with Mindy being in their list of nicknames.

A famous bearer is American actress Mindy Kaling (born June 24, 1979). She's known for her role as Kelly Kapoor on the American version of "The Office", as well as serving as co-executive producer and writer of a number of episodes.

Hit-Girl's real name from the comic (and now movie) Kick-Ass. A foul-mouthed 11-year-old superhero, she is completely awesome.

Ewwwwwwwwwww
Sounds like mint! I hate mint! But other than that, okay... but I'll never name my kid that if it's that or Mandy. That's so prissy!

My name is Miranda... but I never understood how people get the nickname Mindy out of it?
-- Anonymous User  7/25/2011
I like it. It reminds me of a garden of lovely fresh mint. I love the taste and aroma of mint. Mindy seems sweet yet spunky. I would be sure that the child's second name is a bit more formal and traditional. Mindy is a bit out of fashion at the moment, but, so what? It is a very suitable name.

My name is Melynda but I go by Mindy. I'm 35 years old and though the name sounds young, it's the only one of the two that fits me. Plus, my real name has a long negative history attached with it. I've enjoyed being a Mindy. We're not very common and, more often than not, Mindy's seem to be very cool people! I enjoy being a Mindy. The End.
