Names Ending with the Letters "-fy" and -"gy"

This categorization of names is admittedly limited and unusual but it may strike a chord for certain parents seeking a specific sound.  Continuing our series that has already featured -ay, -by, -cy, -dy and -ey names, I present the interesting short list of -fy and -gy names. Since the list is so short, I combined the two and included -fie and -gie names as well.

Many of these might actually be considered nicknames more so than given names. Most Americans are not big fans of this style of names, however in England and Wales, names like Effie and Alfie are considered full, stand-alone names and rank fairly well on the popularity charts.

Girl names ending with -fy and -fie:

Buffy
Effy
Saffy
Sofy
Taffy
Tiffy

Effie
Elfie
Safie
Sofie
Wolfie

Boy names ending with -fie:

Girl names ending with -gy and -gie:

Margy
Peggy
Tiggy

Aggie
Angie
Georgie
Maggie
Margie
Peggie
Reggie
Vangie
Vergie
Virgie

Boy names ending with -gy and -gie:

Iggy
Ziggy

Algie
Angie
Augie
Dougie
Georgie
Hughie
Reggie

Would you ever use any of these names as a full given name on the birth certificate? If so, which one?
