I disagree with the comments. Fay is prettier as a spelling. The -e doesn’t feel necessary.
Faye is one of my middle names (the other is Elizabeth). I never really gave the name much thought growing up but as an adult, I really like it. I think it's a pretty name and I've rarely come across any others with the name here in the UK. I think it's a nice choice if you're looking for a short, easy-to-pronounce name, with a sweet meaning.
Faye is my middle name and my late great grandmother's name. I see so much hate on it but I don't understand why. It's such a cute and sweet name and I prefer this spelling to 'Fay'. It's a sweet name.
Faye is one of the main characters in the children's fantasy book series Stardust Spirits by Linda Chapman.
It sounds ugly. And boring.
Please please please don’t do this to a poor little girl! I would absolutely hate being stuck with name!
I’ve never liked this name. It sounds old, harsh, and outdated.
Faye is such a soft, pretty name! I prefer this spelling over Fay and Fae.
I rate Faye 4/10 because I dislike this spelling. I much prefer Fae and Fay.
I have given the name Faye a lot of thought in the last few days and feel it's such a lovely, soft, pretty name. My great grandmother's surname before she was married was actually Faye, which I feel is a wonderful English surname to have for a female. She had a flower middle name and both together always sounded like a character from Classical English fairy tale.
As well as this, there is also the name Fraye which is very close to Faye but I don't know if they share the same meaning.
I can't help being fond of it. It's beautiful.
This name is lovely for a fairy character.
I prefer the alternative spelling, "Fae".
Faye Wong is a Chinese singer-songwriter and actress, often referred to as a "diva" in Chinese-language media. Early in her career she briefly used the stage name Shirley Wong. Born in Beijing, she moved to British Hong Kong in 1987 and came to public attention in the early 1990s by singing ballads in Cantonese. Since 1994 she has recorded mostly in her native Mandarin, often combining alternative music with mainstream Chinese pop. In 2000 she was recognised by Guinness World Records as the Best Selling Canto-Pop Female. Following her second marriage in 2005 she withdrew from the limelight, but returned to the stage in 2010 amidst immense interest in the Sinophone world.
The name Faye was given to 345 girls born in the US in 2016.
More than 99.9 percent of people with the first name Faye are female.
I have enjoyed my first name of Faye and several people have told me what an attractive and feminine name it is. I also have a young niece who has it as her middle name and another little one with Faye as her first name... so I guess it is popular with my family. My husband likes it very much... it isn't trendy but it is a little different.
I'm really starting to admire this name and recently, I've been thinking about using it as a middle name if I ever had a daughter to honor my mother, whose middle name just so happens to be this. Hers is spelled as Fay but Faye is my preferred spelling :D.
My name is Faye and I love my name because it just fits me perfectly. The name Faye is absolutely beautiful for your child. I am so glad that I have such a unique name, thank you Mom.
I think "Fae" is cuter than Faye and Fay.
I love my name Faye. It is a strong independent name, which can stand alone or joined with another name to give uniqueness to who you are.
Faye is one of my all time favorites. It is such a gorgeous name! It can be used as a first name, or middle name. Sounds great either way. It also reminds me of the tv show "The Secret Circle" where Phoebe Tonkin plays the character Faye. She's a rebel in the show, so she has the perfect name! Faye is like a rebellious name, but still an awesome name.

If you're reading these comments to decide weather or not to name you're child this, stop. Who gives a flying fuck what other people think. Chose the name if you like it, not if other people like it! XD.
This is a soft, sweet name and looks prettier in my honest opinion than Fay, which is also nice. I had a lovely friend at college named Faye and I particularly like it as a middle name.
I really hate this spelling. Fae looks much better in my opinion.
The name Faye was given to 230 baby girls in the US in 2012. It's a very sweet name :)
I like it for boys, too. It's usually spelled for boys as Fay.
This sounds weird, but I prefer this as a boys name.
Faye is just the softest sounding name that there is.
This is a name that a girl could grow into as she gets older. I definitely don't associate it with country girls. Must be a dumb British thing.
Faye with an "e" is also my middle name, and while I didn't care for it as a child, I love it now. Mine derives from women on both sides of my family, and I think it is beautiful, both in meaning and sound. It works well as a middle name in many cases. I like the added "e."
I believe there was a woman named Faye (or maybe Fay) Fuller, I think her last name was, who climbed Mt. Rainier and became very famous as the first woman to attempt such a *gasp* scandalous thing. Morgan le Fey (or Fay, if you prefer) was also a famous, if mythical, bearer of the name.
Huh. I really like this name WITH an E than without.
This isn't a bad one-syllable name, but it has rather been ruined by all the associations to dimwitted trailer trash and country girls, for whom this is a very common middle name.
The character Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bebop is a famous bearer.
Chinese singer Faye Wong is a famous bearer.
Faye is a special name to me, not only is it my middle name (Amanda Faye) but also my mom's and my late grandmother's. The French meaning is fairy, the Irish-Gealic meaning is raven. I even went by Faye for a few years because of how common my first name is. I love the name, it just has a sweet southern sound to it.
I think this name is really cute. I used it for a character in one of my many stories!
Sort of a famous bearer: Faye Tourney, British soldier who was held in Iran.
My daughter's middle name is Faye and she absolutely loves it. She says when she becomes famous, she'll drop her surname and only use her first and middle. LOL.
Pretty, much better than the spelling Fay.
I love the name Faye, I think it's so gorgeous. It's a great middle name too. Like Audrey Faye. I think it sounds so elegant! It also reminds me of Faye Dunaway, and then it reminds me of Joan Crawford since she played her in Mommie Dearest. Otherwise, I think it's cute.
There is a novelist named Faye Kellerman.
I've always seen the meaning of Faye to be "a little fairy" or just "fairy" in general.
Famous bearer actress Faye Dunaway.
