I don’t like it. It has a rather unpleasant sound.

She turned 50 on the day I made this comment.

In 2018, 52 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Cathy* who is registered female with the Social Security Administration. It is the 331st most common female first name for living U.S. citizens.

*as a first name, not a nickname.

I think it's important for people to know people's impressions of a name because it might make them change the name for their child. Cathy's come in a wide variety but everyone I've met could be classified first and foremost as unhappy with a quick temper.

Cathy is my partner's name. She hates when people think it's spelt Kathy, or think it's short for Catherine.

I am going to disagree with the majority and say that I love the name Cathy. Katie is so common. I think Cathy is a very sweet name. I don't think it is outdated at all compared to the top baby names on the list.

I use this name as a name for a little girl, a fictional character. Because of the fact that I developed her before I named her, this brings to mind [for me] a 6 or 7 year old girl with golden curls and watery blue eyes, and a pretty smile, shy but not necessarily unable to speak up. Except I spell it "Cathie". It fits Little Cathie that way, a lot better!

This is my sister's name, and I've always felt sorry for her, because it doesn't quite sound like a real name, more like just a nickname.

This is my name but its short for Cathleen.

The name Cathy belongs to quite a substantial amount of girls and women in Ireland because of its Christian properties. Therefore it is very useful for the usage of the name and is also very beautiful and makes me smile.

Catherine Earnshaw, selfish little creature that she was, still makes this name seem passionate and beautiful to me.

The nickname of the heroine from Emily Brontë's "Wuthering Heights", Catherine Earnshaw. I'm not especially attracted to this name or its other spellings ("Kathy", etc), but it's still pretty in its own way.
