Personal experiences with the name Clancy: | Edit

Clancy is an Irish nickname for Clarence, my son's Grandfather & Grt.Grandfathers' name is Clarence. Clancy has never met another Clancy on the West Coast of USA. It is a friendly sounding name and my son has a great sense of humor and prankishness. Everyone in the area knows or of "Clancy". He's very popular, has lots of friends. This is a great name in my experience for public men, i.e. advertising, comedian, actor, etc. Not good for anyone doing undercover or detective work, people just remember this name too well. He has never complained about his name either. Which I can vouch for many people I know that dislike their given names.
