Possibly going to be an unpopular opinion, but I much prefer the Lindsay spelling. Lindsay, spelled that way, is in my top ten.

I just find the spelling prettier. The fact that Lindsey makes better sense phonetically doesn’t bother me. One letter can make a real difference.

Not to say Lindsey isn’t a bad spelling of the name! I just have my preference.
I prefer Lindsay, but Lindsey is fine as well.

Just don't spell it Linzi, please.
I don't like it for a child or baby, elderly person. Lindsay is waaaaaay better, which I can imagine on any age.
I had a friend in kindergarten named Lindsay. I never knew how to spell her name; I learned three years later... oops.

My sister's name is Lindsey, and it is a very nice name. It sounds pretty, and the spelling is far superior to "Lindsay," which does not sound or look half as nice. However, my sister dislikes her name greatly, so I guess it is just a matter of opinion.
After I married my husband whose surname is Lindsey, I have been called Lindsey by mistake constantly. My first name is Diane. I think it's because it was and still is such a popular name that it is the only name they hear. I don't mind. Frankly, I love having it as my last name.
According to, there are twenty-five people in the U.S. named Lindsey Lindsey, thirteen named Lindsey Lindsay, twenty-four named Lindsay Lindsey and twelve named Lindsay Lindsay!
According to, there are three people in the U.S. named Lindsey Woolsey. (There are also three named Lindsay Woolsey.)
I think it's a pretty name that reminds me of linden trees, or just green forests. Something sort of mild and sweet about it. To me it sort of is okay on Lindsey Buckingham because he is so talented and original, but I wouldn't want to see this name for most men.
Lindsey is a beautiful name, but I personally love it more as a girl’s name than a boy’s name. I don’t think Lindsey would suit a male as it sounds so feminine. Not as a proper boy’s name. But as an unusual boy’s name. Lindsey is actually far more unique as a boy's name than Casey as a boy's name. But both names are much better as girl names. Lindsey has always been an unusual name to give to a boy since it’s always been more popular for girls, just like Mason for a girl. Personally, I wouldn’t use Lindsey as a boy's name unless Lindsey doesn’t cause teasing potential. It would make a better girl's name since we know it’s a normal girl's name of 2019.
I like the spelling Lindsey better than Lindsay. Because Lindsey is spelled how it’s pronounced Lin-sey. I like Lindsay too, only if I pronounced it Lin-say. I still think the E spelling came first just like “Peyton” and “Skyler” and not “Payton” and “Skylar”. I like Lindsey more as a feminine name, but use of the name for a guy has started to grow on me so it’s a nice name for boys and girls. It’s an ultra-rare name for a boy though. We’re talking like way out of the 1000 Popular Boy Names! This is my second comment for Lindsey.
Lindsey is a (sort of) okay name for a girl, but for a boy it's simply AWFUL. Not masculine at all.
1: I feel like Lindsey is the standard spelling of Lindsay. If Peyton is the original spelling of Payton and Skyler is the original spelling of Skylar, why is it the opposite for Lindsey? In fact I thought Payton AND Skylar were first! I think Lindsey is the standard way to spell Lindsay if all “e” spelled unisex names came first, don’t exclude Lindsey! I think Peyton is the standard spelling of Payton, Skyler the standard spelling of Skylar, AND Lindsey the standard spelling of Lindsay. I hope I made sense:)!
2: This is a beautiful name, I have a few potential friends with this name. I heard this name is unisex, but to me it sounds feminine. It sounds too girly for a boy but not as much like Tiana. I still think it sounds more feminine than masculine, but that’s just me!
In 2018, 26 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Lindsey who is registered female with the Social Security Administration. It is the 350th most common female first name for living U.S. citizens.

In 2018, 56 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Lindsey who is registered male with the Social Security Administration. It is the 2, 934th most common male first name for living U.S. citizens.
I think Lindsey is way too feminine to be used for a boy, but that’s just my opinion! If a boy got the name Lindsey right now, he would feel like he’s in the minority though! I still prefer it on a girl (despite Lindsey Buckingham)! It’s an okayish name for a boy, but I hope he wouldn’t get teased.
This is an awful name for a boy. Sounds too feminine. Nobody names their sons Lindsey anymore. They would be teased. I think it is better for a girl!
Sounds too youthful. It would be weird to see an old lady named Lindsey.
I love this name. I like it better spelled this way than Lindsay.

She has won four World Cup overall championships—one of only two female skiers to do so, along with Annemarie Moser-Pröll—with three consecutive titles in 2008, 2009, and 2010, plus another in 2012. Vonn won the gold medal in downhill at the 2010 Winter Olympics, the first ever in the event for an American woman. She has also won a record eight World Cup season titles in the downhill discipline (2008–2013, 2015, 2016), five titles in super-G (2009–2012, 2015), and three consecutive titles in the combined (2010–2012). In 2016, she won her 20th World Cup crystal globe title – an all-time record among men or women, passing Ingemar Stenmark of Sweden, who won 19 globes from 1975 to 1984.

Vonn is one of six women to have won World Cup races in all five disciplines of alpine skiing – downhill, super-G, giant slalom, slalom, and super combined – and has won 77 World Cup races in her career through February 6, 2016. Her 77 World Cup victories are an all-time women's record, passing Annemarie Moser-Pröll of Austria who had held the record since the 1970s, and only Ingemar Stenmark of Sweden with 86 World Cup victories has more. With her Olympic gold and bronze medals, two World Championship gold medals in 2009 (plus three silver medals in 2007 and 2011), and four overall World Cup titles, Vonn has become the most successful American ski racer in history.
It's a nice name.
Don't like this name, but I like this spelling over Lindsay cause it's spelled how it's pronounced.

Lindsay, the variant, looks made up. Lindsey looks real and natural. Most people will say Lindsay Lind-Say, while the they will say Lind-Sey Lindsey.
I love this name! An alternative form of this name is Lindseyana or Lindsei.
As is the case with America, Lindsey, in England and Wales, is the most popular spelling compared to Lindsay, Linzi, Lynsey etc.

As I said when I made a comment about Lindsay, Lindsey (along with Lindsay) began to be used much more frequently for girls in England & Wales in the 1950s or 1960s. In 1966, excluding those without a middle name or only an initial in their (1st) middle name in birth records (provided by ancestry. Co. uk), 314 females and 12 males were given the name Lindsey. When combined with Lindsay, Linsay, Linsey, Linzi, Lyndsay, Lyndsey and Lynsey, the combined total would be would be 710 females and 53 males.

The name increased further in popularity in the 1970s with variants like Lyndsay, Lyndsey and Lynsey being especially used more frequently thanks in part to Lynsey De Paul, the English singer-songwriter who became famous in 1972 for her songs (i.e. "Sugar Me"). In 1973, 561 females and 6 males were given the name Lindsey with a combined total of 1, 310 females and 40 males.

The peak of the popularity occurred in the first half of the 1980s. In 1980, 767 females and 13 males were given the name Lindsey with a combined total of 2, 522 females and 43 males. By then, its popularity began to decrease and by 1996, 80 females and around 2 males were born with the name Lindsey with a combined total 255 females and around 5 males (which, for the combined total, is just under a tenth of what it was in 1980).

By 2013, Lindsey, along with other variants (with the exception of Lindsay and Lyndsey where 3 girls each were given one of these names), became, pretty much, unusable for a baby in England & Wales.
Love this name, it sounds so pretty with the E.

Lindsey is my last name and I love it, except when people ask you what your last name is, you tell them, and they say, "No, your last name." Then you have to say, "That IS my last name!" I have a cousin whose first name is Lindsey after the family name.
This spelling sounds good. It looks right. The thing about this name that ticks me off is when people spell it Lindsay or Lindsee or Lindzee.
I love this name for a girl! I definitely prefer the Lindsey spelling to Lindsay. I just think Lindsey looks more elegant.
I actually prefer this spelling to Lindsay, since the pronunciation is more intuitive.
I just can't believe this used to be a boys name. That has really put me off this name for some reason. I don't know why I have a problem with it. I seem to accept Ashley but just not Lindsey. Maybe because it is so girly sounding just the thought on a boy totally ruins it.

Lindsey McDonald was a recurring character on the TV show "Angel", written by Joss Whedon. Lindsey (a male) was played by the actor Christian Kane.
I prefer this spelling in English and Linzi in Croatian. Lindsay looks like it should be pronounced LINN-say or LIND-say, not LIND-see or LINN-zee. I pronounce Lindsey LINN-zee, LINN-see, LIND-zee or LIND-see.
My name is Lindsey, and I like it pretty much. What bothers me, though, is when people say/call me "Lin-zee." I much prefer it to sound like a soft "ds," like "Lin-dsey," but unfortunately many people don't do this. :(

Lindsey Vonn is an American skier who won World cup 2007/2008 and she leads in World cup 2008/2009.
This is my first name and I love it. It's common, but it's not too common. It's a very pretty name for a girl. I prefer it to be spelled "Lindsey" and not "Lindsay". "Lindsey" is how you say it, not "lind-SAY." "Lyndsey" isn't a bad way to spell it either.
I named my daughter Lindsey. Love it! I like it spelled ey.
I know I've commented for this name (my name, actually), before, but now I have new insights. As I said before, I like it better with an "e" than an "a" for girls. I think the name is very simple, but not a classic or boring name. It's simple, but pretty at the same time. It's not a super-modern, trendy name, and not too popular, though I do know at least two other Lindseys (or Lindsays). I love its meaning--"linden island." Sometimes I wish I had other names, but I am proud to be named Lindsey! :)
I prefer Lindsey with an E to be on a boy, whereas Lindsay with an A is for a girl. It's a very nice name besides.
Not only is Lindsey a very pretty Scottish name but it is also the name of a Scottish tartan too. I'm not sure how the tartan Lindsey/Lindsay is spelt but I too prefer the name spelt Lindsey. I know someone called Lindsey. There's discussions between my father and I for me to add a Scottish name to the rest of my names that I already have. I have been looking up at a majority of Scottish names, and the name I think I will choose out of them is the name Lindsey.
There is also East and West Lindsey in Lincolnshire (I think it is!) and also there is a small village in Lincolnshire by the name of Kirton in Lindsey! Both place names are spelt Lindsey.
I much prefer this spelling to Lindsay. I don't know why, but if you name her Lindsay, it seems like you have to say "LYN-D-SAAAAY", as if you SAY a word. I prefer Lindsey.
My name is Lindsey, and I like it with the "e" much better than with the "ay." I think Lindsay is more masculine or better for a last name, and Lindsey is more feminine. I also think it doesn't make sense that it is sometimes spelled with an "a", because it is almost always pronounced Lind-see, not Lind-say.
I love this name! Well, of course I do, it's my own name. I think it's so delicate, but slightly modern. I like it spelled Lindsey.
I like this name, it's very pretty and cute.
I like Lindsey as a boy's name when spelled with an 'e', but with an 'a' for a girl. Can't explain it! Also Lindsey is the name of a character on TV show Angel - and he's male.
This is my last name which was changed from Lindsay to Lindsey in the 16th century when they came to England from Scotland. We are a very old Scottish family that can be traced as far back as Sir James Lindsay of the clan Lindsay of Scotland in 1010. They are known financial supporters of William Wallace.
Lindsey was used more during the 1980's and 1990's.
Lindsey is a nice name, but kind of overused. I can talk about it all I want, as it is my name. It annoys me when people spell it "Lindsay" because it looks like it's pronounced Lin-ZAY. People misspell it a lot. One girl Lyndsey gets it misspelled like everyday.
Lindsey Lohan is a famous bearer of this name.
Lindsey is a beautiful name for a girl and I also prefer it with the "e" than the "a".
I love the name Lindsey, it is very pretty. I prefer the spelling with "ey" than the spelling with "ay".
