No longer just a long-standing chain of department stores, Macy has become a cute name choice for girls. The name hit its peak in popularity in 2003 and is a good choice if you want a name that ends in “y” but isn’t as common as Stacy or Tracy.


  • french: Possibly from an Old French word meaning Matthew's estate, though the name may also derive from a surname Mace, a medieval English personal name of unknown meaning, or a similar Gaelic place name meaning "long, low hill."
