Terri is a cute name for girls. Though I don't like to name any girl any name that can also be considered as boy's name. I think it is not a good idea to do so. Unless this girl is a tomboy who grows up like that.

Just an ugly name for a girl.

A famous bearer of this name is Terri Irwin. She is the wife of Steve Irwin (aka "the Croc Hunter"). Steve and Terri are on Animal Planet each day at 6 pm eastern.

Seeing as how my name is Terri, I must say that I've grown rather used to it. It's not such a bad name. I've never been mistaken for a boy. The only problem I've ever had is that people tend to want to spell it T-E-R-R-Y and I almost always have to correct them. But that's just one of those things.

I think this spelling looks much more feminine than T-e-r-r-y. It is cute as a nickname for Teresa, but I wouldn't use it alone.

Terri Schaivo (is that the right spelling?), the brain dead woman who died in 2005. (correct me if I'm wrong)

Terri is a female version of Terry, although both are used, Terri is more for females.

Terri seems sort of trashy to me.

Terri is my mother's name and she has always disliked it. My dad calls her T. She was born in 1960 where it was used more for boys and the popular names for girls were names like Kathy and Cindy. It's not used much now but you still get the occasional man named Terry.

Boy's or girl's name it's still really cute. I have a friend that goes by this name. Too bad her last name is Bell. (Terri Bell/Terrible)

Well this is my name. It's been ok for me and I have never had it mistaken for a boys name. Nor have I ever know anyone with it who seemed trashy to me, as I read in another comment. Here in Australia the nickname for it is Tez. Which is also used for Thersea as well.

It's an alright name for a girl. I know from experience that I'm not keen on my name, but I prefer it to commoner names. I hate the fact that people get the impression I'm male because of the name, and I have to explain the 'I' and the 'Y'

I really like the name Terri. I really don't like super girly names like Kiana and Ciera. But hey, different strokes for different folks. I think all kids are going to try to make fun of all names, no matter what. That's what kids do. Enough of the chatter, but I really love the name Terri. It could be used for a girly girl or a tomboy!

Terri is my mom's name, and it's not short for Theresa, just Terri. She was a tomboy growing up, and she had her name misspelled a lot, whether it was T-e-r-r-y or T-e-r-i. Honestly, for a girl, I think my mom's spelling is the prettiest (Teri looks too short, and I've always considered Terry masculine).

Sounds ugly and low class, "stripper name". Do not like it.

Terri is my sisters name, short for Teresa. I think it's a gorgeous and really friendly and happy name. I've always loved it anyway.

I think Terri is a very nice name for a girl. My teache'rs name was Terry, and that was ugly, because it was more a boy name. But Terri is nicer.
BTW, for the Lyndsey Sands vampire novel fans here: The wife of Bastien is named Terri too. I saw this name there for the first time and I simply loved it.

My name is Terry, I've only had a problem with being mistaken for male in 7th grade when my name was listed for Shop class. This name peaked in popularity for females in 1955. I'm glad it's spelled with a Y. I've met very, very few women with this name. None of them were trashy or strippers and most of them were actually Theresa's who preferred to go by Terry or Terri. My mother almost named me Debbie... Thank God, her friend stole that name. And it could have been worse... Susan, Carol, Jane, Mary, Judy, Linda, or Barbara. All those names were real common back then. So happy to be a Terry.

A variant of this name is Tearri.

My name is Terri (I was a 1958 baby - a time when Terri was at it's most popular so it seems). I grew up with people telling me Terri / Terry was a boys name... I did not like that. As a teen I started including my middle name when I had to write my name - Terri Lee. I love the two names together. Through the years I have met MANY Terri's - most were either Terri Lee or Terri Anne (I did meet one who said her parents could not decide so she was named Terri Leanne!).

I have even discovered there are Terri Lee dolls (hugely popular in the USA in the late 50's and 60's when the name Terri was so popular).
