    Way to much of a stretch. Eppie is a very close sound though, and would work perfectly for Eponine.

    I don't care for Persephone at all.. but I gotta say, Ephonie is an adorable nickname! Like... just PERFECT! I kind of wish that was my name, just so I could introduce myself to people as Ephonie!

    Neither are great namesakes! But, if you're in a country that's not Australia, they're okay. Just be aware that, if your child travels to Australia some day, the name Effie may be greeted with raised eyebrows!
    I might be because I'm young but I've never heard of them (I live in Australia). I used to watch Kath and Kim though (was that Kim's daughter's name?)--a guess.

    Eponine does feel like a bit of a stretch.

    Have you considered:

    Euphemia
    Efa
    Efea
    Effemy

    Thanks for all the suggestions everyone. I do kinda like Effemy is it a "real" name?

    I have struggled to find a good "full name" for Eppie so I feel your pain!

    How about:
    Saffron
    Sophronie/Sophronia

    I even think Effie could work with a name like Fern or Fiona.
    Not expecting, just planning and building lists!

    Especially in some regional accents, I could definitely see the leap from Eppie to Effie being minimal. (In other areas, it may seem somewhat stretchy). I think it works.
