    ooooooh... so many lame "head" jokes with that name.  How about Hadley??

    I think first of the actress Hedy Lamarr - a real badass lady IRL, then I think of Jennifer Jason Leigh's character in Single White Female.

    I think it would be difficult for a girl to have the name Hedy in middle school and high school - whenever the boys in her grade discover the alternative meaning of the word "head"

    I want to like it, but it seems kind of awkward. Sorry!

    It's ok. It's my name. I was just sitting here thinking......I wonder what they would say about my name.

    I never got head jokes until I was much older like in college and that was only from close friends. No one was mean/bully about it.

    I think Hadley or Hattie (NN for Harriet?) would be a better option. I'm just not a fan of Hedy, or as I keep seeing, Heady.

    I actually knew someone by that name!  It was my friend's mom's name and she was a beautiful person inside and out so I like it!

    My great grandfather's 2nd wife's name was Hedwig and everyone called her Hedy. So to me it's kind of old fashioned.

    My husband's grandmother's name is Hettie-Lou so I can't get the old lady out of my mind when I think of Hedy.

    It's been my nickname as long as I can remember. It's only a nn, but I choose to go by it all the time. My real name is Heather. I remember my grandma said I was jealous that the other kids got nicknames and I didn't have one, so after Hedy Lamar, I got called Hedy Hopper. I dropped the Hopper part though LOL.

    It's okay.

    I knew a Hedy in HS.  Her twin sister was Holly.  They had an older sister Ivy, and younger brother Lance.  I can't remember the other 2 sibling names.

    I went to school with a Heather, nn Hedy.  So it doesn't sound weird to me.

    I had a friend with this name growing up, so I have a good association with it. She never got made fun of for it either.

    I had a friend with this name but pronounced it Hay-Dee.

    I think it just ok though

    So funny - all the Heather's I know use the nn "Hez or Hezzie." I've never heard of Hedy for Heather.  Interesting!

    I once had a girl-crush on a Hedy.  I like it, but prefer Hetty.

    I'm Heather and I never heard Heddy as a NN! I like it personally. If I didn't have a NN that is completely unrelated to my name I'd try to adopt it! LOL
