If your name is Lindsey, you are anything but ordinary and average. You have an extremely spiritual and sensitive nature, which causes you to often get lost deep in your own thoughts. You are on a quest to discover the deeper meaning of life and your place in the universe, and your intuition and ability sense an feel what is happening on a deeper level sometimes leaves you at a loss to try to explain yourself. When you do try to express yourself, you often find it easier to so in writing—maybe even poetry or music. You have intense powers of concentration, and you are able focus intently on the things and ideas that interest you. This focus, though, tends to disappear when you have to engage in routine or boring tasks, as you prefer to keep things from becoming to monotonous.
Because your character is so deep and sensitive, others do find it hard to understand you, and they might mistake your quiet, reserved ways as your intention to be stand-offish or aloof. This is why you would much rather share your true self with only a few close friends rather than with a whole host of acquaintances. You find renewal and relaxation in the outdoors, and when you need to recharge your batteries, you head out to enjoy the beauty of nature.
Lindsey as a girls’ name comes to us from the Olde English words “Lelli” (a first name) and “eg” (meaning, island) -- together meaning “Lelli’s Island.” This became the name of a place in England in the region of Lincolnshire known as Lindsey. Lindsey eventually was used as a surname and then adapted to a given name, first for boys, then for girls.
Lindsey was used as a boys’ name in the United States all the way back to the 19th century, but it first appeared in popular usage for girls in 1974. As Lindsey became super popular for girls in the 1980s, it completely fell out of usage for boys (a common phenomenon). Lindsey reached its peak popularity for girls between 1982 and 1988, when it was in the Top 50 of all popular girls’ names in the United States. Lindsay (with an “a”) is another popular variation.
