This is my first name and it's not short for anything. I was named afer an uncle. Unless you want people to think your daughter is a boy before meeting her or seeing her name written down, make it short for Miranda or something. The only other female Randis I know of were the chick from my big fat obnoxious fiance (or whatever the show was called) and a girl from my old school who is 3 years younger than me. Also in India it means slut or something along those lines. Yay me. In Britain the male spelling can mean horny.

Sometimes used as a nickname for Miranda.

If you use it, do consider that Randi is a VERY masculine name.

I absolutely hate this nickname for Miranda. It sounds masculine and trashy.

This has been my God given name all 25 years of my life. It is not short for anything and I disagree with some of these posts. It is not a trashy name, in fact I have had many compliments on my name throughout my life, some have even told me it was beautiful. I have researched the meaning of my name and in Scandinavian culture it means "beautiful adviser".

I am not a fan of this diminutive for female usage... I definitely associate it with the male gender. If you are uncontrollably bent on naming your daughter "Randi" please consider it as a strict nickname for Miranda (.. which is not a favorite.. but it's better) or some other similar title.

My sister's name is Randi, she was born in 1968. My mom clearly liked unique names. I've noticed the name Randi for a female becoming quite common. As long as a female spells it Randi or Randie - please leave the "y's" to the boys.

Randi is common for striped cats in Sweden, since "randig" (striped) is usually pronounced "Randi'" in spoken language.

I have had the name Randi for 29 years now and I'm a female who's not trashy! I was named after a lot of great men in my family except they are all Randall and I'm just Randi. I'm proud of my name and the strong men I was named after.

It's also used in Norway where, strangely enough, it has never ranked over #10 but ranked #10 for seven years, including 1925, '27, and '48 to '52.

Why go by a masculine sounding nickname like Randi when you could go by Mimi or Miri?
