    Would you name your daughter...

    Birdie? My grandma went by Birdie but her name was Roberta. I love Birdie, but I'm not sure if I should use it as a first or middle name. I would like to pair it with Reese. What do you guys think?

    Hmmmm, I am really torn on this one. No, I wouldn't personally name my child Birdie, but then again, that isn't my grandmother's name. I think it is adorable, but not sure about it. I don't like the combination of Birdie Reese. I would pick something much more feminine in the middle.

    If you weren't using Reese, I'd suggest Robin. I wouldn't personally use Birdie as a given name.

    Birdie is adorable! I like it, but I agree, I wouldn't use it alone. What about an actual bird name--like Sparrow Reese, Lark Reese, Wren Reese, Robin Reese, etc.--and use the nn Birdie? Since Lark and Wren are so short, you might have to use a different MN, but I do like the idea of Lark "Birdie" or Wren "Birdie". I like Bridie so much more, but Birdie has the tie to your grandmother. Maybe Bridget nn Birdie?

    It's hard to say. Birdie is very cutesy, but it also isn't my grandmother's name. What about Beatrice nn Birdie? It sneaks Reese in there as well. I wouldn't use another bird name, because to me it sort of defeats the purpose.
