Congrats on your girl! I'm trying to think of middle of the range names - not too popular but still easy enough to say & spell. Also something pretty and without an obvious nickname.

I understand you may not like the nickname Addy (personally I don't) but you can't stop people from using nicknames. Even if they can't think of one right away- I think it's nice to have a fond name to call someone. Take my 8 month old nephew Oscar. I call him Ozzie in my head but my sister in law hates if my husband calls him Ozzie. But they find it okay to call him Osca Posca.
I do know a woman who called her son Christopher. He's 25 and she still tells people off for calling him Chris. If you dislike nicknames that much - give your child a name that can't be easily shortened hehePlease vote on my names list http://www.babynames.com/namelist/9831892

There are many classic names that have gone into relative disuse, but it's hard to think of many that won't possibly result in nicknames.
I'm not really caught up on what's popular nowdays, but some suggestions:
