Middle names for Edie?
DH and I are expecting in December (2 days after big brother, Cole Matthew's bday!) and I'm convinced its a girl this time. We finally found a girl name we both like, Edie, but we are having trouble with a middle name. Our surname starts with F and is 2 syllables. I was thinking that since Edie is traditionally a nn it should be anchored with a good, strong mn, but god help me if I can think of anything. I like Edie Claire, but DH passed. Any suggestions?
Also, I'm a little paranoid...does Edie work as a stand alone name? DH actually likes Edith, but I really don't. Is Edie too cutesy for a "grown-ass woman?" Or is it too cutesy period, because I'd really like to avoid anything cloying and precious.
i mean Edie not Eddie my fault lol
I don't think it's too cutesy at all. I have known several little old ladies with the name and it makes me think of Edie Falco. I think it works just fine on it's own.
I think of Edie Sedgwick who was Andy Warhol and Bob Dylan's muse.
Edie Simone is pretty bad@ss
Edie Kate is pretty cute too
Oh, I had a classmate in elementary school called Edie. (Her brother's name was Gus, I think.) It works fine alone. It's a little "cutesy" but so are Molly and Lucy, in my opinion.
For a middle name, how about a classic, like maybe Katherine or Grace.
Or a short name (like Claire) such as May or Beth.
I think Edie Mae sounds lovely!
I find Edie incredibly cloying, and I'm someone who likes names like Daisy, Lucy, and Dot. Also, it makes me think of Idi Amin. So sorry!
I like Edna.. but that's probably too clunky for you. Idony is gorgeous. If Edith doesn't quite do it for you, there's Edytha. Or the Finnish Iida (pronounced "EE-dah")
Somehow Hedy is music to my ears, but not Edie.
