Eerie is a GP name of mine. (Yes, yes I know. But I still think it sounds interesting and lovely). When I read the heading I thought you were just spelling it differently.
I agree with pp's Irie could be a decent nn for Irene or Irena or Eirene.
Other suggestions could be Irati, Irmgarde, and Irsaline.Expecting Our First.....
DH doesn't want to discuss names until
we know if it's a boy or girl. GRRRRR ARGH!

Irie makes me think of Rastafarians which isn't a bad thing at all, but I do think a lot of people who pick the name are interested in aspects of that culture & think of it as a name that is evocative of smoking marijuana & getting irie.
Are you interested in that meaning or just the sound? The meaning is wonderful, it means good, great, I'm good, ect, not just "I'm high" but I think it is misunderstood to mean "I'm high" to a large group of people. I think that longer names like Irene, Irena, Iris all work well. Isadora has so many more intuitive nicknames but I wouldn't fight you on it if you introduced me to Isadora nn Irie, it just isn't what I would do.
I think Irie works great as a middle and Isadora Irie is awesome if you don't mind alliteration. The I and I together with the middle name Irie I would assume you had some ties to Jamaican culture.

I wouldn't say it is misunderstood to mean I am high.
It really does mean no worries, stress free.
However having been to the Rastafarian community in Jamaica, all you smell is weed as they are always lighting up and they are very serious about their pescatarian-ism (they eat fish which they do not see as an animal so they are not vegetarians). So culturally it is a by-product of being associated with the rastafarian community. The 'I and I' (if you go that route) would definately give the impression you were intensely interested in the culture.
