This is a very pretty name, but before you name you child this, you might want to give her an exotic middle name, in case she marries a guy with the last name of Smith, or Jones, or Parker.

Well the name sounds like [soft faeces] in Chinese. So if Nancy is moving to China especially Canto area, tell her to change her name. No one dares to have this name in this area.

In my family, going back as much as 10 generations, Nancy was used as the pet name for women named Agnes. I've always read that it is a diminutive of Ann, but this is my experience. We, by the way, came from Northern Ireland and before that Scotland.

I used to think it was a terribly dreadful name but after playing Nancy in Oliver I have somehow bonded with it. But my friend Leslie finds the name unredeemable.

And she called herself Lil
But everyone knew her as Nancy".

A nice retro, smart, decent, good girl name. Looking at the birth announcements in the London papers, it seems to be coming back in style in the UK. It reminds me of Nancy Drew.

Very good name for a boy, if he's gay. "Awww, my little Nancy boy looks so cute with that purse!"
-- angolmois  9/17/2009
I think you mean effeminate, not gay.
-- MoonAgeDaydreamer  9/17/2009
The name is also a city in France. The first small fortified town was built by Duke Gerard of Lorraine around 1050, and named Nanciacum (Medieveal Latin), Nanzig (Old German), or Nancy. In 1218, Nancy was burnt to the grounds by Emperor Frederick II in the War of Succession of Champagne. The city was rebuilt, enlarged, and endowed with a new castle.
-- nschoess  10/21/2009
I'm not fond of this name. It sounds so Fifties and like the name of a mean woman. And I don't like the association with Nancy Reagan.
-- bananarama  1/1/2010
I love Nancy Drew, but I'm not sure if I like the name Nancy itself.
-- Anonymous User  2/25/2010
This name is really adorable and amazingly retro--two qualities I simply adore. While I don't like the Nancy Reagan association, at least there's still Nancy Pelosi, Nancy Wilson, and Nancy Drew to redeem it!
Although, personally, I don't think I'd name my daughter this (but never say never) I'd LOVE to meet a little Nancy.
However, I do hate it when I see combos like "Nancy Ann" or "Nancy Anne". Seems quite redundant. But I always found it funny that Heart is made up of Nancy and Ann Wilson, haha.

Recently, I nicknamed my good friend, Adrianna, "Nancy," so I love it even more now! (If you're wondering how I got Nancy out of Adrianna: Adrianna -> Anna -> Anne/Ann -> Nancy).
