You have found the perfect name for your little girl. Everyone loves it, and to top it all, it has a beautiful meaning too. However, be prepared that every name will be shortened and nicknames are quite common.
It’s very rare that I call any of my children by their full name. Unless of course, they’re in trouble. So why not think of some in advance to prevent any that you really dislike from sticking?
Nicknames can be anything from a shortened version of the person’s actual name, a combination of the first letters of both their first name and surname is also a popular one. Here are our favorite nicknames for Amy.
The Meaning of Amy
Amy has origins in both French and Latin. The meaning doesn’t change but the spelling is altered.
Amee is the Old French version of this name which derives from the Latin amatus meaning loved. It came into common use after the publication of American Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women.

Puns for Amy
“My fiance Amy dumped me…..and I was crushed and the world had no purpose, no direction. I wandered through my life Amy-lessly.”
“Took a girl named Amy on a date to Dave & Busters (this is an arcade). She absolutely beat me at any shooting game we played, as well as basketball.”
Afterward, I told her, “I figured out why you beat me at basketball and those shooting games. I have terrible aim, but you’re a little more Amy.”
