Comments and insights on the name Darcy: | Edit

"Myself being named Darcie, I know that I am certainly glad of a unique name, no matter how "boyish" I hear it described as. I am, however, still gladder of the difference in spelling- I am a personal fan of the 'ie' spelling."
-Darcie le Faye

"My first name is Darcy and I don't really have strong positive feelings for it but i like the 'y' spelling of it I actually prefer to go by my middle name Rhiannon, which is also Irish, I also like the y spelling of the name Evelynn with two 'n's but then again I am weird."
-Darcy Potter
