Opinions on this name - first or middle?
My grandmother was a very important person in my life, her name was Roberta, but she was known by everyone as Birdie.
I prefer not to use Birdie as a nickname for a more traditional name, I would like to use it either as a first or a middle name.
Is Birdie too out there for a first name?
Which do you prefer?

Birdie is better as a middle name. Personally, I wouldn't want to go through life with a name like Birdie. "Bird" is often used for a slang word for a "young woman" and in some Asian countries it's a term for a part of the male anatomy. Using the middle finger is called "flipping the bird". Bird and Birdie just has too much teasing potential as a full name. Tessa Birdie is the better option.All the best,

I am on the fence with it. I did have Birdie on my list a while ago. That celebrity also named her little girl Birdie as well and now has a daughter named Cricket. So I can see it as usable. I never knew about what Mischa had mentioned in her statement and not sure if a lot of people would know that. I guess it goes based on how comfortable you are with it. Plus I feel people are naming their children more unusual names that teasing potential may not be there. I like both combos. I think Birdie can work in the front or middle spot and the names you chose to go with it are very nice. Its a tough call because both have different vibes and different rings to it! Maybe bring both with you and see which works best?TTC Baby #1!
