Gender: F Meaning of Birdie: "bird" Origin of Birdie: English

Birdie was until recently a middle-aged Ladies' Club member wearing a bird-decorated hat --but now it's just the kind of vintage nickname (think Hattie, Josie, Mamie, Millie) that's coming back into style in a big way. Actress Busy Philipps named her baby Birdie (inspired by First Lady Lady Bird Johnson), as did soap star Maura West.

In an earlier heyday of nickname names--the 1880's--Birdie was a Top 200 name.
