Carrie... sounds like Carry.
I like it! It's really beautiful. It doesn't work with my last name at all, though. Kind of saddening.
The name Carrie can be short for Carol or Caroline.
Cute name! This is also the name of one of Laura Ingalls Wilder's younger sisters.
Carry me Carrie.
Carrie White and Carrie Bradshaw aren't the best fictional associations to have with a name.
This name sounds very 70s to me and it reminds me of Carrie Underwood. I much prefer Caroline.
In my opinion this name is not bad, but the presence of Carrie Lam, the chief executive of Hong Kong utterly ruined the name.
This is an ugly name in my opinion and it is also outdated as well.
Carrieta 'Carrie' White from Stephen King's book and three different adaptations.
Carrie is the name of the older of my two American Girl Dolls (the other one is Hazel, for people like me who get curious). She has blonde hair with bangs and blue eyes. Her name is short for Caroline, which I got from my grandmother's name Carolyn, because Grandma Carolyn bought the dolls for me.

I still really like the name, even though I named my Carrie several years ago. I think it can be cute and innocent and adorable for young girls, but also sensible and smart and beautiful for when they get older. I also love the name Caroline, a gorgeous alternative if they don't like Carrie, and would only give this name to my daughter if it was short for Carrie.
In 2018, 33 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Carrie who is registered female with the Social Security Administration. It is the 283rd most common female first name for living U.S. citizens.
I hated my name for the longest time due to the movie association. I was born in the 70's so everybody would always ask if my parents named me after the movie. But since then I have come to love it. I was the only Carrie in my graduating class and it's so uncommon now that is is unique. It's a very homely name and very American and traditional which describes me to a tee. Some part of me wishes it would get popular again though. I thought after Carrie Underwood it would, but nope.
Title character of the 1900 novel 'Sister Carrie' by Theodore Dreiser. The character's full name is Caroline Meeber.
Much better than Caroline.

Underwood won three Grammy Awards for the album, including Best New Artist.

Her second album Carnival Ride followed in 2007. It had one of the biggest ever opening weeks by a female artist and earned Underwood two Grammy Awards. Her next album, 2009's Play On, was a commercial success led by the single "Cowboy Casanova". Underwood's fourth album, Blown Away (2012), earned her a Grammy Award and was that year's second best-selling release by a female artist.

I'm the other Carrie that tried out for American Idol in 2004 for that season in 2005 when the Underwood chick won. I'm just glad it's spelled many ways so when I finally have a sex change, I will only need to change the spelling. Which is cool because I don't want to change my name. I just really hate being called missCarrie. It should be funny but since I feel I haven't accomplished much in life yet, it's almost as though it's true.
My name is Carrie and for the longest time I despised bearing this name. I just felt like this wasn't my REAL name. In school, when people would ask how I spell my name they would say "oh like CARRIE that crazy psychic girl" which bothered me so much that I now spell my name with a K. I've recently started to accept my name and am at peace with it. I now think it's kind ♡f pretty. (:

Carrie Kelley is a character in the DC Comics who is the female Robin. Reports suggest she is set to appear in the 2016 film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
I have mixed emotions about this name. Growing up I had an older friend whom I idolized, so I named all my dolls and things Carrie after her, lol. But then there's the Stephen King film and Carrie Underwood... I don't know, I don't like it as much anymore.
My name is Carrie and I personally love it. I don't seem to like any other spelling of it. I think that a person's name is very influential to that particular person. I can't imagine being named anything else.

I love the name Carrie. It makes me think of a young girl full of spirit and intellegence.

Also, the name of Carrie Bradshaw, the main character and narrator on the famous TV series Sex and the City. She was played by Sarah Jessica Parker.
I can't hear this name without thinking of Stephen King's Carrie. It's a good book, but the character isn't exactly the best association. On the plus side, I do like Carrie Underwood. Still, I think this is better off as a nickname.
Carrie is the name of the female protagonist on the TV show, Homeland. The character is portrayed by Claire Danes.
There are like seven different ways to spell this name, but out of all of them, this is my favorite. It's actually the only one I like, it sounds the most dignified.
Laura Ingalls's Sister was Caroline (Carrie) Celeste.
Carrie is cute, but I liked it a lot more before Carrie Underwood came along. She's so annoying, sorry. My favorite would have to be Kerrie. Carrie is incredibly boring to me, but Kerrie is different and beautiful.
I just do not like Carrie. This is the worst spelling, I like Karri better.
It is true that in America that Carrie, Kerry, Kari, and all other similar names are all pronounced the same. Occasionally you will come across a Kari who pronounces their name CAR-ee, and most people think the person is trying to put on airs. So CARE-ee is the common pronunciation. I now know a Carrie, Carey, Cary, Carie, Kari and Kerri, all girls.
I like this name, but it sounds kinda sad to me. Not because of the movie, I never watched the whole thing, I really don't know why. I picture someone like a nurse caring for the terminally ill, or the leading lady of a tragedy. But beautiful.
I have read in a baby name book that Carrie has the a meaning in its own right. This is 'womanly.'
Carrie has many different spellings, these include 'Cari', 'Kari', 'Carry' and 'Karrie'.

It is a very American name.
A famous bearer was American women's suffrage leader Carrie Chapman Catt (January 9, 1859 – March 9, 1947). She was served two terms as president of the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA): first from 1900 to 1904 and again from 1915 to 1920. Her second term coincided with the addition of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution.
The name Carrie is ok, but I think best alternate names for Carrie are Carrigan and Carrington.
I quite like Carrie as a nickname for Caroline. When I portrayed Caroline in a high school production of 'Guys and Dolls', my best friend nicknamed me 'Carrie' :P
Famous bearer includes Caroline (better known as) 'Carrie' Ingalls, the younger sister of famous author Laura Ingalls Wilder, and third daughter of Charles & Caroline Ingalls.

Carrie's character was in all of the 'Little House' Books, portrayed by twins Lindsay/Sidney Greenbush in the famous '70's-'80's television series, and also in many miniseries and movies based off of the life of The Ingalls Family.

Carrie Ingalls was born in 1870. She died in 1946.
One of my favourites. The pronuncations on this site are obviously American. In England this name is pronounced CA-ree. I understand that with an American accent, Carrie, Carey and Kerry all sound exactly the same!
I love this name! I like Karrie too.
I have come to really like this name. It is very pretty and underused now. Wonderful name!
At one point Carrie was just an okay name but the hype over Carrie Underwood irked me and the name lost the little interest in it I had. I'm not too fond of it anymore.
The only Carrie I knew back in school was always teased and called Harry Carrie. This has always stuck with me. With that aside I don't think it is a bad name but maybe better as a nickname.

I want to share a meaning of the name "Carrie" that I found years ago in a grocery rack paperback "Encyclopedia of Baby Names" by Globe Special Library. It states "CARRIE (Latin-French) Very pure in deed and thought." Also, in another source I don't remember, I read that Carrie came into popularity as its own name in the 18th and 19th centuries as a diminutive form of Caroline.
