- Comments and insights on the name Mindy: | Edit
I have always disliked my name because I knew my parents got it from "Mork and Mindy". My entire life I have been asked "Hey, where's Mork?" (ha ha, funny every time...). People also assume that my name is short for Melinda and that it doesn't stand on its own.
I really like the name Mindy! It's sweet and cute. I don't know if I would use it, though, because of the Mork thing.
- Personal experiences with the name Mindy: | Edit
When I was younger people assumed my little brother's name was Mork, but now that the show isn't aired I don't get Mork comments as much. I like my name, it's fun and has a sing-song happy sound to it, which suits me. People on occasion ask what it is short for, and are fine when I reply it's simply "Mindy".
