My name is Stacey. This name is pretty nickname proof. The only nickname I remember anyone bestowing was in college when I was referred to by a few as Spacey Stacey.
Ever since I can remember, I hated my name, Stacey, mainly because I could never find it on any of the keychains or mugs in gift shops, if there was a mug it was "Stacy", and whenever I had to tell someone my name so they could write it down, they'd spell it wrong. Even after 20 years I still feel uncomfortable being a "Stacey". and that weird little trend after that stupid song "Stacy's Mom" and a whole bundle of mean girls named Stacey in movies and on TV, did nothing to improve my fondness for the name.
I really like having this name. There aren't many Stacey's my age which is nice, though I've met one or two, but it's not like Stacey comes across as a super weird name or anything. Only problem is that I don't speak clearly all the time so I occasionally have to repeat my name like 100 times and people think I'm saying fifi or ridiculous things, but as long as you're not worried about a lisp, Stacey is a great name! Haha really though, look up all the great Stacey's out there: Fergie's real name is Stacey, Stacey Dash, Stacey Farber, ok I'm out of famous people, but we're all awesome. AND, surprisingly, I almost always find both Stacy and Stacey name options on magnets and keychains and things...and believe me I always look.
I always liked my name! True, you can't find it spelled correctly, but I didn't mind so much since I thought "Stacy" was an uglier version. I was especially thankful not to be one of the million Jennifers or Amanda's that I grew up with.
One of my best friends is called Stacey and she quite likes the name. However, our male friends do annoy the hell out of her by constantly singing "Stacy's Mom". Seriously guys that joke is old!
