Effie

Hello, I’ve been crushing on [name_f]Effie[/name_f], it’s whimsical, but not too out there. But here’s my dilemma; is it too cutesy for an adult? Is there any longer versions to get [name_f]Effie[/name_f] as a nn? I know there’s euphegenia, but I have trouble remembering the correct pronunciation. Also any mns for [name_f]Effie[/name_f] would be appreciated, but not necessary. TIA!

[name_f]Effie[/name_f] is super cute! I really like how it sounds and the imagery I get from it. I don’t think it’s too cutesy for an adult. I’ve met a few adult Effie’s and the name fits them really well.

I know a [name_f]Stefanie[/name_f] who goes by [name_f]Effie[/name_f]

I think [name_f]Effie[/name_f] is sweet but I think I would prefer a longer name and use [name_f]Effie[/name_f] as a nickname. I I love long names with spunky nicknames

I think [name_f]Effie[/name_f] could also work for

[name_f]Seraphina[/name_f] / [name_f]Serafina[/name_f]
[name_f]Sophie[/name_f] / [name_f]Sofia[/name_f]

I also enjoy [name_f]Effie[/name_f]! my first association is the Hunger Games character, and an older woman who attended my old church. I’ve never seen it as too cutesy to wear, and I think [name_f]Euphemia[/name_f] could be a full name for it as a stretch?

other ideas I found are:
[name_f]Cefernia[/name_f]
[name_u]Efemena[/name_u]
[name_f]Effa[/name_f]
[name_f]Estefana[/name_f] / [name_f]Estefania[/name_f]
[name_f]Josepha[/name_f] / [name_f]Yosefa[/name_f] / [name_f]Jozefa[/name_f]

I can’t believe that I forgotten that [name_f]Stephanie[/name_f] can be short for [name_f]Effie[/name_f]! From your suggestions I like: [name_f]Seraphina[/name_f], [name_f]Sophie[/name_f], and [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f]. Thank you!

I think Effie works for an adult (I wouldn’t mind having a name such as Effie, for example); however, with Effie, when I think about it too much I just see the letter F - still, I don’t think most people would think about that (they don’t with Ellie anyway).

As a middle name, I would like something a little more established to fall back on, though. Just in case I don’t love the nicknamey-ness of Effie for certain situations.
Something like Effie Matilda, Effie Georgiana, Effie Helena or Effie Vivienne….

Oh, and if I were to be nicknamed Effie I would like my full name to be Aoife, I think. Or Eva. Or anything starting with an F.

I’ve never considered that [name_f]Effie[/name_f] looked like F to some people.
I like; [name_f]Effie[/name_f] [name_f]Matilda[/name_f], [name_f]Effie[/name_f] [name_f]Georgina[/name_f] and [name_f]Effie[/name_f] [name_f]Helena[/name_f]. And [name_f]Aoife[/name_f] is cute,! Thank you!

It’s rather that it sounds like the letter FE. Similar to [name_f]Ellie[/name_f] > LE

[name_f]Effie[/name_f] is such a sweet name! I think it can work as a full name. I named a character in my recent Regency romance [name_f]Effie[/name_f], short for [name_f]Euphemia[/name_f], but I did think through alternatives, and my list is:

[name_f]Sophia[/name_f]
[name_f]Seraphina[/name_f]
[name_f]Florentia[/name_f] (Florence)
[name_f]Stephanie[/name_f]

And any F names, really. [name_f]Faith[/name_f], for instance. [name_u]Or[/name_u] FE as initials – [name_f]Frances[/name_f] [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f], for instance.

I don’t think [name_f]Effie[/name_f] is too cutesy for an adult. Maybe [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] or [name_f]Josefine[/name_f] would work as a longer version. Middle names: [name_f]Effie[/name_f] [name_f]Isabella[/name_f], [name_f]Effie[/name_f] [name_f]Leonore[/name_f], [name_f]Effie[/name_f] [name_f]Nadia[/name_f].
