We had decided on Heidi until dh decided he quite liked Indie I love it and it was one I had suggested months ago so we are now undecided again , what do you prefer if either ?

Indie if it's short for something.

But I quite like Heidi too.

Bowlersarm thats my problem , only names I can think of that indie could be short for are india or indigo both of which dh hates.

Bowlersarm Thu 26-Dec-13 21:11:19

Oh! I can't think of any others either! India is one of my favourite girls names, but no good if your dh doesn't like it.

But Heidi is fine, so go with that.

I do love Indie think it goes well with dds name too (Lyla), such a tough choice, Dh is happy to leave it up to me so pressure is on,

Definitely Indie. Think it's better as a nickname for India or Indigo than it is as a full name though. Xx

I love Heidi too so Im happy either way , think indie might be a bit too "out" there suppose heidi is safer option.

We have an indira. Usually known as indie (unless causing trouble that warrants her full name!) She is fab grin

I also love Heidi, but don't have one <helpful>

Short for India or indigo


PandaNot Thu 26-Dec-13 21:28:28

Indie! Don't like Heidi at all, just 'feels' wrong.

Route666 Thu 26-Dec-13 21:32:53

newtonupontheheath Indira is lovely will suggest that to dh.
PandaNot any reason in paticular it feels wrong ?

I said it first <sulks>

Either is nice. But Heidi is a bit more unusual than Indie which is a bit ubiquitous in middle class circles. Heidi is much more original but then you might not want that.

BunnyLebowski Thu 26-Dec-13 21:41:50

Heidi is in no way original.

Kerry Katona has one.

I really dislike it. It sounds twee.

LCHammer Thu 26-Dec-13 21:44:00

Heidi is gorgeous.

Route666 Thu 26-Dec-13 21:46:11

lol apologies LineRunnerliking Indiana too.
Edinbugger I have never met a heidi or Indie , I too want something more original so thats a bonus.
BunnyLebowski honestly the kerry katona thing really put me off at first h convinced me she will be forgoten about soon enough but still.

Edinbugger Thu 26-Dec-13 21:46:24

Who says Kerry Katona isn't original????????

Route666 Thu 26-Dec-13 21:51:40

Edinbugger cant comment on kerry katonas oiginality but dont want people thinking we copied her.

LCHammer Thu 26-Dec-13 21:52:45

KK has given all her children pretty names and sensible by any (minor) celebrity standard.

BunnyLebowski Thu 26-Dec-13 21:53:59

I just think Heidi goes with KK's other daughters name a which are undeniably saccharine and cutesy.

Indie is straight up cool. DP wanted it for DD but I chickened out. It's now back on my list if this baby turns out to be a girl!
