    Why don't you Google the name Dixie since you were also on Yahoo? It's just a nickname meaning Southern. I'll link the Wikipedia to help with the names origin and meaning. You know it's been used by the band the Dixie Chicks, the name of university, as well as the actress Dixie Carter. On this website, it's one of Pam and Linda's Sweet Spot names that's also a perfect balance between fitting-in and standing-out.

    Elodie Anne sounds much better than Elodie Dixie anyway. It's really lovely!

    I wouldn't find the name Dixie offensive (and honestly, I can't even figure why it would be), but like many pp I just don't find it very attractive. I definitely prefer Elodie Anna and I think it's very cute

    Forgive my ignorance, but how is it offensive? Personally, it isn't my style, but I don't see how it could be offensive. Sorry if I'm just dumb haha.
