Also can be used as an independent name such as in my case. Missy can be taken to be Old English and mean "young girl".

Don't name your child Missy! She will be made fun of and be called PRISSY MISSY!
-- Taydbug112  12/7/2006
My name is Missy and never has anyone made fun of my name or called me "Prissy Missy". Perhaps if the Missy bearing the name has a prissy attitude she might earn that nickname but not every Missy will be called that. I for one am anything but prissy.

Well, my name is Michelle and one of my million nicknames is this one Missy.

Famous bearer - Missy Higgins Australian country music signer. I'm sorry but this name makes me think of a dog. :(

Being a girl, there is just something so lovely about people calling you Missy.

Missy is a snotty girl's name and it is just flat out terrible. If you name your daughter Missy I gaurantee you that she won't make it through school with all the kids making fun of her name. Parents use that when their daughter is getting into trouble as well.

There is no wow-factor to this name.

Missy Park is an entrepreneur and is included in the new book in Their Shoes by Deborah Reber.

It sounds very cutesy and infantile, and it makes me think of spoiled little girls, like the character in the movie Welcome to the Dollhouse. In that movie, Missy was the little spoiled ballerina sister of the ugly and unpopular Dawn. This is an epithet used by older people when they talk to a young girl to scold her. All in all, not a good name, or even a good nickname. Besides, I hated Missy Elliot's music!

Princess Marie of Edinburgh, later Queen of Romania, had the nickname "Missy."
-- Kate  6/13/2008
No way. It's so cutesy and juvenile. This is also a word that adults use to yell at their daughters: "Just WHERE do you think you're going, Missy?" It's not a real name. It's more of a nickname.
-- bananarama  10/9/2008
I think if you want to name your daughter Missy, you should name her Melissa or Marissa so that way they don't get stuck with what seems, as someone else put it, juvenile the rest of her life if she doesn't want to.

If it's a nickname, then at any point she can just stop going by Missy and go by her full name. It works both ways.
-- DorktasticKelly  12/18/2008
It isn't a very good name, in the long run. Any self respecting forty year old woman would try to ditch this name right of the bat. );
-- PsuedoSalem  7/10/2009
I think Missy is more of a cute little nickname and not a mature name.
-- Katelynn_96  12/9/2009
I just can't imagine calling someone Missy as their full name - it sounds like an exotic dancer's stage name, and there was actually a porn star called Missy.

This is a name which severely lacks class.

My puppy is named Missy. She is a yellow lab. I don't think it's common. I can see it as a cute nickname. But as a name I do not think a lady would be respected with a name like that. Puppy, sure. Person, uh, no.

Trashy, low-class stripper name. Goes along with other stripper names like "Bambi" and "Candy". I do like the name Melissa, but there are much better nicknames for it, like Mel or Lissa. I'm not even sure where people get Missy out of Melissa. I really hate this name. If you use it people might think your daughter is a bimbo.

Sounds more like a horse's name.

In the novel, The Shack, Mack has a daughter named Melissa, but he calls her Missy.
-- Ryry1996  5/30/2011
Constantly I get asked what Missy is short for and it gets old after a while having to explain that it's my name not some nickname. I've had people say that they are called Missy but their names are Melissa, Michelle and Marissa.

There are times when I wish my parents had given me another name but I'll survive. If I get too tired I can always tell people to call me MissyLynne or even Lynne.

My cousin's name is Missy, and throughout her entire childhood to her adulthood (she's 25) she has NEVER been picked on because of her name. The name ages well.

Missy is what you call a girl who is being cheeky. Not much of a name to me.
