Comments for STACEY:

This is a very pretty name. I am surprised it is so rarely used anymore.

This is one of my least-favorite names. Everyone girl and woman I have known with this name has been kind of lower-class and trashy.

Excuse me but LOWER CLASS? Who do you think you are? We do not live in the times where people were separated and put into classes and anyone who thinks a name defines who they are is just ridiculous. Stacey is traditionally a nickname for regal Russian names for example Anastasia and is not at all trashy, so what if you've known some bad people? I've met some good, some horrible people in my time and Stacey happened to be a surgeon and a head of a charity, also my friend's older sister who is amazingly beautiful, but considers modelling a waste of time in today's society.

I agree. Stacey is a gross name. It reminds me of Tracey which is also very hideous and cheap sounding.

I was very surprised to see that this name was pretty popular for boys in the '60s and '70s. I never knew it could be a boy's name. I like Stacey only as a nickname for Anastasia. I would not use it as a full name, but it is nice as a nickname for a girl. I can't imagine it on a boy. Maybe it's just me, but a man named Stacey sounds horrible.

My name is Stacey and as a child, I wanted to be called 'Clare' or 'Sarah' since that is what every other girl seemed to be called when I began school at the beginning of the '80's. Now that I am in my late 20's, I really like it. it is neither strange or typical!

I do not like this name at all. I think it sounds so trashy and cheap. Everyone I know called Stacey/Stace/Staci have bad images. I hate this name.

It's nice, but I prefer the spelling Stacy. By the way, saying that Stacey is a "lower-class name" is just totally disrespectful and discriminative.

Stacey is a very beautiful name. Saying it's "trashy" is wrong and you should think about it before you call someone's name "trashy", how would you like it if somebody said that about your name?

Stacy Peralta is a famous male bearer of this name. The movie Lords of Dogtown was based on his, Tony Alva, and Jay Adams' pioneering of skateboarding in the 1970's.

I think it's just a beautiful name for a girl, but it's just too feminine for a boy's name.
-- gym4god  3/14/2007
Well excuse me if you think Stacey is too girlish. It's a boys name to. It doesn't sound 'girly' at all. It is more of a boys name in New Zealand and some parts of Australia.

To all those people criticising the comment about Stacey being a trashy name. We're allowed to have our opinions thank you very much. Stacey is in fact in my opinion a trashy and lower class name.
-- Anonymous User  4/8/2007
Much better as a female than male name even though as a rule I would refuse to use surnames for a girls' name (no direspect intended, I am a girl and I have one myself, I just don't like how trendy it is). But if one were to name a boy Stacey, I think Stacey seems somehow more masculine than Stacy.

My own cousin's name is Stacey and she is a perfectly wonderful girl. Stacey is a beautiful name and NOT trashy.

Sounds like a barbie/cheerleader/wannabe/popular/blonde/bimbo.
-- sairalouise  11/10/2007
I personally dislike it. It sounds like a stripper name to me. And honestly I really pity any guys named Stacey, school must have been hard for them.
-- pandasayscynical  12/14/2007
I don't think Stacey is trashy at all, common YES! You may know some trashy Stacey's but that is the person for you, not the name. So don't judge a name by people you have met, with this name. My name is Stacey and I don't think I am a trashy blonde, I am actually brunette so your comments are wrong because I am not cheap either. So don't judge a name by it's person! If you don't like the name that your opinion.

Of Latin origin, meaning 'Stable'. Sometimes quoted as meaning 'resurrection' (probably due to 'Anastasias' holding such a meaning, and 'Stacey' is a derivation of this through 'Anastasia').

My name is Stacey and whilst my initial reaction to people slagging my name off is "How dare you, you B*$!*^£s!", I can see how the negativity towards the name has developed! I can assure you I do not fit the stereotype of the trailer-trash image most people seem to conjure up when thinking of this name and I would even go as far as saying I am happy with my name (I'm all for irony!)

There a famous actress named Stacey Dash.

In Mildred Taylor's book 'Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry', Stacey Logan was the older brother of Cassie Logan, the main character.

My name is Stacey and I think it's unfair to judge anybody's personality or character by their name. Just because the Stacey you know is trashy doesn't mean everyone with that name is. Same with stripper or wannabe cheerleader blonde bimbos. I'm not a stripper, a wannabe or a cheerleader however what's wrong with cheerleading? I've met some snotty, bratty, cheerleaders but again that doesn't mean they all are. I'm also not blonde but a redhead and this "bimbo" has been on honor roll every quarter for 8 years. Thank you very much. However I don't see it as a boys name. And it's not too common for a girl. I'm the only one I know and people tell me my name is beautiful.

I find it odd that so many people have such a negative view of Stacey. I've known several Stacey's (or Stacie in one instance), and they were all perfectly nice and respectable people. I've had more problems with Jennifer's, but you won't find me bad-mouthing the name.

I've always thought of Stacy as the masculine spelling (because of actor Stacy Keach and a male character on the "Dick Van Dyke Show") but it is a personal choice.
-- Jamesina  7/15/2010
I agree that it could sound trashy, but the Stacey I know is very intelligent and went to college a year early, and a really modest, pretty, kind, Christian girl.
-- Liesl  1/19/2011
I like this spelling the best. Stacey is an ok name.
-- Missy125  3/12/2011
This was my dear close friend's mother's name. I'll always attribute this name with the qualities of her lovely character. :) It's a name that someone would grow into.

My name is Stacey Peralta... like the legendary pro skateboarder Stacy Peralta. However, he's a dude and I'm a chick. I probably wouldn't choose the name Stacey for a girl/boy myself. But, unknowingly, my parents made a great choice. I never knew when I'd grow up and boys lost their cooties, that most of them wouldn't forget my name. So to me the name Stacey... anyway spelled, works for me. Of course because it's also followed by a great last. :)

My name is Stacey and I feel rather offended that people are basically saying that people with the name Stacey are trashy, cheap tack, and all other kind of crap. I am not dumb and neither are other Stacey's I know, and we're not any of the other descriptive words people use. Fair enough there are bad Staceys out there but we're not all like that and people shouldn't get put into that category. I think it's wrong that some people are discriminating people who are called Stacey and other names, it's not right at all. I personally love the name. I think it's a unisex name. It's a very popular boys name in the south of the UK but where I'm from it's usually girls like me.

My name is Stacey and I really love my name. My close friends and family call me Stace which I like. I have no idea why people say it is a trashy name as a name does not make someone trashy, it's the way they act and an intelligent person would know that! :)

Funny how the people slating the name 'Stacey' have done so anonymously. Clearly your name isn't that great either or you'd use it and be proud of the name chosen for you by the people who gave you life. There's good and bad in all people and it has absolutely nothing to do with what they are called. I was named after the midwife who saved mine and my mother's lives during childbirth. That doesn't automatically make me an amazing, life-saving person like she was; nor does the name Stacey make me anything like you describe. Use your opinions more wisely in future.

The name Stacey was given to 184 baby girls born I the US in 2012.

My name is Stacey (though I spell it Staci). I think it's a nice enough name, though it's always been a bit boring for my liking. I've known a few in my life, though not enough for me to feel like 'one of many'. I recognise that it is often seen as a bimbo name, but of the Staceys I've met in real life, and including myself, only one has ever fit the stereotype and none have been blonde. Your perception of a name is always going to be influenced by people you know with that name. I think Staci suits me, and I'm no trashy, low-class blonde bimbo.
-- SJayne  9/30/2013
I don't think Stacey is that bad but what is bad is everybody who judges people by their name.
-- Anonymous User  7/14/2014
My name is Steicy. Same pronunciation, different spelling. I like my name. I'm not trashy, heck I'm not even American- I'm Hispanic. I was reading most of the comments and yes, you all have your own opinions but all I'm gonna say is if you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say it at all.
