    Names for nn DeeDee

    My husband and I both like the nickname DeeDee, but not as a first name, since DeeDee on its own lacks gravitas (Dee Dee Myers excepted). Can you suggest any names that would lead to DeeDee? They don't have to start with D...

    I like Marguerite --> Daisy --> DeeDee, but that's a bit of a stretch.

    Something like Cordelia or Edith would work, but my husband is not so fond of what he considers to be "old lady names"--although I like them.
    Or Sadie?

    Any other ideas?

    I would agree with this, but I especially like it as a nn for names with two "Ds" like Deirdre or Deandra.

    The only DeeDee I've ever met (besides Barbie's bandmate in Barbie and the Rockers, haha) was called Delia. I've always loved that name & the Johnny Cash song, except I have heard the American store "Delia's" isn't well regarded. I've never been to one, so I can't say.
    Latest list:

    Girl: Lulu, Eden
    Boy: Leo, Wallace, Grady

    Mommy to one sweet little boy who I loved naming Lennox Andrew Michael (Lex for short)
