Gender: F Origin of Addie: Diminutive of Adelaide or Adeline

Old-fashioned nickname with sweet turn-of-the-last-century charm that's become a favorite of today. In fact, with all spellings of Adeline/Adalynn taken together firmly in the Top 10, and Adelaide and Addison also high in the charts, Addie is one of the most frequently-heard short forms around. Little girls might like the fact that it's the name, though spelled Addy, of an American Girl series doll.
