I really like the name Sadie but my husband says it's a pets name (dog/horse). Do you agree with him?

oh I meant to add that to my post @fenellavelour - never had any 'sexy sadie' nicknames either.....

@BabloHoney My nana was known as Sadie but her real name was Sarah. She was born in early 1900's.

I have only ever come across one other Sadie and she's about 12 now.

I think it's nice enough but I like Zadie better.

To digress the thread in the nicest way has the poster with prem baby Saydee been back recently?
Just reminded me!!

Whynosnowyet Mon 13-Jan-20 19:55:14

Just searched and saw she was home for Xmas!
Lovely start to the year!!

Don’t like it.

Mollie3 Mon 13-Jan-20 20:17:30

Don’t like it, used to know a very badly behaved girl called Sadie and I don’t like the sound of it too

I think it's a lovely name and if it didn't clash with my surname I would have it at the top of my list

I'd never have thought of it but I actually love it. It's definitely not a pets name. I have a Lola and have met loads of dog Lola's since I named her. I've never heard of a pet called Sadie

I don't like it, sounds like sadist

It's just so twee

OnlyFoolsnMothers Mon 13-Jan-20 21:04:48

Love but we already have one in the family so couldn’t use myself!

TatianaLarina Mon 13-Jan-20 21:07:38

I don’t love it but I don’t think it’s a pet’s name.

I don’t see sad I see (hear) Sadism.

fairynick Mon 13-Jan-20 21:07:47

I love the name Sadie but I do also know a dog with the name!

ButterflyRuns Mon 13-Jan-20 21:09:07

I think it's a bad name but I don't think of a pet

PlantPotting Mon 13-Jan-20 22:41:18

I don’t see it as a pets name

I adore the name Sadie- it’s on my list

RaininSummer Mon 13-Jan-20 22:42:35

Nice. Makes me think of the Beatles track.

I have a Sadhbh and tried to introduce Sadie as a nickname when she was tiny.

DH was having NONE of it.

So similarly to others, I love it, DH has no taste and vetoed.

I wanted this 18 yrs ago when I was pregnant with DS. I'm pretty sure my MIL who was from Northern Ireland told me it meant slag or whore of something similar there 😕

millymae Mon 13-Jan-20 23:05:26

I love Sadie - used to work with someone called this who has been registered as Mercedes.
As to it being a pet’s name, that wouldn’t bother me at all. Lots of people give their pets what I would call a human name nowadays.

TerribleCustomerCervix Mon 13-Jan-20 23:14:56

Bigus, your MIL was talking shite.

(I’m from NI with multiple great-aunties called Sadie)

MissPepper8 Tue 14-Jan-20 00:36:17

I love it, also love other “old lady” names such as Connie, Nancy etc

I had great nana Sadie and Connie 😂

My nana Sadie, was actually a Sarah but everyone used her nickname and called her Sadie.

Sorry but as a child our dog was called Sadie so not my first choice

whateverhappenstheremore Tue 14-Jan-20 00:55:33

It's cute

RoobyRoobyRooby Tue 14-Jan-20 07:20:05

I adore Sadie. I think it’s so lovely and is a name that works well across ages.

BigusBumus Tue 14-Jan-20 07:32:40

terriblecustomercervix Haha doesn't surprise me at all that my MIL was talking shite. She always did! I'm glad it doesn't mean that, I've always loved the name- she obviously didn't and tried to make something up about it. Kind of typical of her tbh.
