but think it probably requires a long sensible grown up name too... can't have Elizabeth as one of my other DC's has it for a middle name....

suggestions please?

Ladybird Johnson (president Johnsons wife) was really called Claudia. Great name, that.

Nicknames evolve, don't they? And don't have to be relevant? I have a Boo and a Lamb - no real relation to their real names.

Bridget is often Birdie or Bridie in Ireland.

Please don't nickname your child Birdie.

I knew a Birdie when I was a child. It was her nn because she fell out of a window. Her real name was Virginia.

Do you home school? I read a blog about a woman in America who homeschools and her DD is named Lark, and saw an American wife swap episode that featured boys named Hawk and Eagle, also homeschooled.

HA NO, def no homeschooling here!

those names are a bit mental.....altho i would consider Wren or Linnet.....

Maybe a name with "b" in the middle could be called Birdie, like Mirabelle. Robin! There was a thread last week that mentioned Robin

I know a Birdie. His parents were crazy golf fans but he doesn't go by Birdie any more. surprise surprise.

Birdie is what me and my sisters called our vulva when we were small...

It isn't really something I'd go for but I kind of like it. Could be short for Beatrice as well as Bridget and Elizabeth, I love Bridget. It could also work for Liberty and Roberta.
