Really finding it hard to pick a girls name! What does everyone think of Edie?

Gorgeous. My niece is called Edie. I think it works on its own or with Edith as a full name.

I like it and also Edith.

I’d use Edith and shorten to Edie (maybe) but wouldn’t use Edie alone on the birth certificate

I love it. It is a lovely name. Congrats OP flowers

I like it (it's also my favourite song by The Cult).

mummyluf Sat 17-Mar-18 21:55:37

don't really like Edith, is it okay on its own? Thanks!

Love Edie! Was going to call my daughter this but my partner wouldn't agree. We went for Evelyn in the end but Edie is a lovely name.

Cute name smile

I have an Eden, she gets called Edie by all her friends. While I love Edie I hate it as a nickname... I'd just use Edie if its a name you love.

Looks like a boys name, a nickname for Edward.

Love Edie, Edith and Eden. Dd was nearly one herself! smile

Pipi- long vowel, one consonant. Short vowel, two consonants. Not sure if you're not English (German?) so just explaining to you that the nickname for Edward is Eddie- two ds)

Love Edie on its own and as a short form of Edith. Have also heard Edie as a nn for Meredith which worked well.

MikeUniformMike Sun 18-Mar-18 18:54:05

I'm not keen - it's ok short for Eden but she will just get called Ede.
Could it be short for Edwina?

Thanks Brutus. But when I see Ed or Edie my brain still thinks Ed-ie, but thanks for the explanation.

I like it, but slightly prefer the spelling "Eadi" - it looks more like how I think it should be spelt!

Edie is a fab name smile did you watch Desperate housewives? I mainly know it from that !

mischiefmanaged01 Mon 19-Mar-18 10:16:10

Edie is on our list 😍

Snoopysimaginaryfriend Mon 19-Mar-18 12:34:17

I have a Meredith and everyone calls her Edie

pipilangstrumpf Mon 19-Mar-18 12:38:22

Yes, Eadie is much more phonetic than Edie!

Crunchymum Mon 19-Mar-18 13:18:42

We have an 8 week old Edith.

She is Edie mainly but Edith on BC.

Lifeaback Mon 19-Mar-18 15:39:10

I have an edie (Edith on birth certificate) so I'm biased but I love it! We've had so many compliments on what a beautiful name it is, and I think it will travel with her perfectly as it's quite cutesy but also elegant and classy for when she's older

5LeafClover Mon 19-Mar-18 17:21:47

Loved it, but OH vetoed it. Still think it's pretty.

Greenyogagirl Mon 19-Mar-18 17:29:58

Love Edie smile

Out of interest, how do you introduce your little one? (We introduce as Edith even though we call her Edie)
