What does Iggy mean?

Iggy equals Ignore

If someone has “put you on Iggy“, it simply means they have chosen to ignore you. This phrase is typically seen on internet platforms, especially during chats. It is used to convey to the other person that you don’t intend to respond to their messages. For instance, if a chat participant is causing trouble or trolling, you can inform them that you’re going to “Iggy” them for a bit.

In another context, though, “Iggy” could refer to two distinct music artists. The first is a rapper named Iggy Azalea, who has been active in the music scene since 2011. The second is a musician known as Iggy Pop, who is often called the “Godfather of Punk”.

So, when someone says they “love Iggy”, they’re likely not expressing an enjoyment for ignoring others. Rather, they could be stating their admiration for the work of either Iggy Azalea or Iggy Pop.
