Comments and insights on the name Sunny: | Edit

Like other "weather" names, such as Stormy, Windy, and Misty, this name peaked in the late 1960s to early 1990s.

Especially after reading A Series of Unfortunate Events, i love the name Sunny. It's my favorite baby girl's name, along with Nessie and Matilda.

If I have a daughter, I'm going to name her Sunny after the character in Wings of Fire.

I get it confused with Sonny, a boy's nickname.

Personal experiences with the name Sunny: | Edit

My grandmother's name is Sunny and I think it is wonderful. She definitely fits her name, and I love that it sounds young still (as opposed to, say, Agnes). I think it's a name that fits well at any age. Wouldn't you want to be Grandma Sunny when your old?

My name is Sunny. I was named after Bobby Hebb's song. I also, coincidentally have red hair. My parents named me before I was born and before they knew I would have red hair. My sister's name is Iris and my mom's name is Dawn, so we all have nature names. I have received many compliments on my name.
