We have a 2 year old called Annie & I'm pretty convinced we're having another girl due in 7 weeks. I like Edith/Edie but am a bit concerned that Annie & Edie sound a bit similar/silly when said together, 'I have 2 girls called Annie & Edie'... Am I being overly-cautious?!
Yep, I see what you mean, although I don't think the 'an' helps as in just saying 'Annie & Edie' not quite as tricky?? The only other name I really like is Ellen but don't like Ellie which is doubtless what she'd end up getting called......
Thanks all, sorry I disappeared off my own thread - broadband gave up due to fairly major building works in our house- great when you're 36 weeks pregnant! Thanks Meteorite for all your suggestions - some lovely names in there but I think has really helped me come to the conclusion that I love the name Edith the most. Smother - Tess makes me think of 'ten ton Tessie' which was a mean insult to larger kids at my primary school (maybe that was just in Ireland tho').
Charlatan - if you can have an Archie & an Edie I think I can maybe get away with Annie & Edie / Edith. Nothing else is really tickling my fancy quite as much...... :0
Hmmmmnm I do like Nell too - is it really a viable shortening of Ellen though or is that cheating?! Well, feels like I have 2 names in the bag now & can try them out when the baby arrives & see which suits best... thanks all!
We have Edith/Edie and so many people have said they really love the name. They are usually referring to Edith rather than Edie though. Go for it. I think the names are lovely and if we have another girl, I'm thinking of Anna for her.
Thanks for the vote of confidence StiffyByng. Our Annie's 'official' name on her birth certificate is actually Anna but much to her grandparents' consternation we started calling her Annie almost immediately. I love the idea of getting 2 names for the price of 1 ;-)
