Comments and insights on the name Tracy

Tracy is a great name. But spelled with an 'e' (Tracey) it always looks wrong somehow.
I don't think it looks wrong w/ an 'e,' my fave spelling is Trasea or Tracea.

Don't use the Tracea spelling - too much like the word TRACHEA (the windpipe).

Personal experiences with the name Tracy

My name is Tracy and I love it i dont have to spell it for anyone and no one says it wrong.

Im also Tracy. I love my name. I like that it seems like a friendly, happy, easy-going and energetic name.

My name is Traci spelled with an "i". More feminine.
-I personally knew a girl named Tracy in the 5th grade in elementary school in the early 1990's , very nice person, Irish like me, she even lived only one block away from me, when we were in the same 5th grade class, she was very nice to everyone , so the name Tracy is very cool, due for a revival in 2020
