I like the name Darcy for a girl, to go with dd Lottie. Thoughts please

I know two Darcys. Both girls aged 5. I like it.

I think it's more popular for girls, but the one Darcy I know is a boy. I'm not keen on it for either.

Prefer spelling Darcey

Never heard it for a boy

Getting popular at moment. Pretty though.

I don't like surnames as names. Also the only Darcy I know is a dog.

Sleepyfergus Fri 26-Jun-15 16:18:42

I know 2 girl/ named this although one is spelt Darcie. I like it as a name but prefer the Darcy spelling

I know a 2 year old Darcy (girl). I didn't like it at first but it's grown on me and it really suits her.

Thanks, and yes I was wandering which spelling to use, Darcy, Darcey or Darcie but think I prefer Darcy tho. I only no one girl aged 3 with this name, but when I searched the name on google it says boys name so just got me thinking that's all.

King Charles or miniature schnauzer.

As Scarlet says, it's a surname. As we all know, Mr Darcy's first name was Fitzwilliam....

DD20 has a friend called Darcy. At least it says Darcy on her birth certificate-she's always known as "Bumsy" !! Short for D'bumsy-as opposed to D'arse-y!! And she doesn't mind? In fact she introduces herself as "Bumsy" and explains it! I think it's been quite the conversation starter when they've been out on the town!!

I think of it primarily as a girl's name, although I know it can be boy's too.

SaulGood Fri 26-Jun-15 18:36:16

It's unisex. I wouldn't expect a man or a woman. I'd wait and see.

I don't like it either. It's that surname as a first name thing again and I am not a fan. That's just personal preference though. You should absolutely use it if you like it.

Lovely - for a girl x

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Fri 26-Jun-15 19:05:32

I'd say girls name.

Morgan Fri 26-Jun-15 19:26:53

I know a girl Darcey

I know 2 girl Darcy's under 2

The only Darcy I have heard of is the ballerina Darcey Bussell. It is nice whichever way spelt but can't imagine it as a boys name.

FraggleHair Fri 26-Jun-15 20:03:26

I'm laughing at Bumsy!

I don't think as a name it will age very well to be honest OP.

Trinpy Fri 26-Jun-15 20:05:48

Dolores I think she means her dd who is 20, rather than she has 20 dds wink.

I know one toddler Darcey. Her mum says she gets various spellings but according to her, Darcey is the female spelling.

FraggleHair Fri 26-Jun-15 20:07:31

Mr Darcy was unimpressed to hear that his noble family name was being snaffled for baby girls.

hawkmcqueen Fri 26-Jun-15 21:21:57

I know a lovely little girl called Darcy. It's not my cup of tea though, it sounds quite abrupt or something? Looking at your spellings, I like Darcie strangely!

bikeandrun Fri 26-Jun-15 21:27:06

I know one and he is a boy, suits him never really thought of it as girls name until Ms. Bussell came on the scene
