I am so obsessed with this name but there's no way I could ever use it. The fear of it being shortened to the preppy and modern "Cadie" or, even worse, the out-right masculine "Leo" has scared me away from this option time and time again. But it's just so beautiful and rare and stunning that I keep crawling back to it. If only there was a way to use it without the nicknames getting involved! :(
