Full names for Bridie? ”

I love [name_f]Birdie[/name_f] as a nn but would feel like she would need a longer, more ‘serious’ name for adulthood.
Any suggestions? Looking for as many as possible!
thanks :slight_smile:

[name_f]Adore[/name_f] [name_f]Birdie[/name_f]. [name_f]Birdie[/name_f] was what my dad called my mom. She passed 2 years ago this month. My [name_f]Isabel[/name_f] [name_f]Margaret[/name_f] [name_f]Birdie[/name_f] would go by [name_f]Isabel[/name_f] and [name_f]Birdie[/name_f]. So my thought is that you could use [name_f]Birdie[/name_f] as a middle name.

For first names, my first thought was either [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] or [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f] “[name_f]Birdie[/name_f]”. I suppose any name that begins with B, better yet BI, and has an R or D sound in it. ~ shoulder shrug ~

I think the traditional long name is [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]… I guess [name_f]Betty[/name_f] to [name_f]Birdie[/name_f].

[name_u]Bird[/name_u] names:

[name_u]Robin[/name_u]
[name_u]Raven[/name_u]
[name_f]Paloma[/name_f]
[name_u]Wren[/name_u]

Names that could be shortened to [name_f]Birdie[/name_f]:

[name_f]Bernadette[/name_f]
[name_f]Bernice[/name_f]/[name_f]Berenice[/name_f]
[name_f]Bridget[/name_f]
[name_f]Alberta[/name_f]

I’d also like to second the suggestions of [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f] or [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] :slight_smile:

I love [name_f]Birdie[/name_f] too! I think that it works intuitively for many names beginning with B: [name_f]Bridget[/name_f], [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f], [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f], [name_f]Bertha[/name_f], [name_f]Brenda[/name_f], [name_f]Brianna[/name_f], [name_f]Bryony[/name_f].

You might want to consider a nature name and use [name_f]Birdie[/name_f] as a casual nickname, although it might seem like a stretch. [name_f]Do[/name_f] you like any bird inspired names, e.g. [name_u]Wren[/name_u], [name_u]Raven[/name_u], [name_u]Robin[/name_u], [name_u]Dove[/name_u], [name_f]Lark[/name_f]?

Honestly, I don’t think [name_f]Birdie[/name_f] is too outlandish. She’s received some recognition from English singer Birdy (who is great, by the way) and would be lovely as a middle, or even as an unrelated nickname used between family.

That’s a tough one! I guess [name_f]Bridget[/name_f] would be the most obvious one, but I don’t think there really is an obvious full name for [name_f]Birdie[/name_f]. Hmm what about…

[name_f]Liberty[/name_f]
[name_u]Aubrey[/name_u]
Something that has Ber in it: [name_f]Amber[/name_f], [name_u]Ember[/name_u], [name_f]Kimber[/name_f], [name_m]Berkley[/name_m]…
Something that means [name_u]Bird[/name_u] or is a bird: [name_u]Wren[/name_u], [name_u]Robin[/name_u], [name_f]Ava[/name_f], [name_u]Phoenix[/name_u], [name_f]Lark[/name_f], [name_f]Paloma[/name_f], [name_f]Linette[/name_f]

The only full name I’ve ever heard of for [name_f]Birdie[/name_f] (and [name_f]Bridie[/name_f]!) is [name_f]Bridget[/name_f], which I think is lovely.

I also agree that [name_f]Birdie[/name_f]'s not too out there to use. I think it’s rather sweet, and fits in with names like [name_f]Elsie[/name_f], [name_f]Minnie[/name_f] and [name_f]Lottie[/name_f], as well as [name_f]Daisy[/name_f], [name_u]Dove[/name_u] and [name_f]Lily[/name_f].

I personally would use a bird name like [name_u]Wren[/name_u] or Skylark to get to the nickname [name_f]Birdie[/name_f]. :slight_smile: One of my cats has a bird name and I call her [name_f]Birdie[/name_f] from time to time.

I like it by itself!

I like:

[name_f]Bridget[/name_f]
[name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f]

My first thought was [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f], but after reading the other posts I like [name_f]Bridget[/name_f] too! Personally I prefer [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]…I think because in Mad Men [name_m]Don[/name_m] [name_m]Draper[/name_m] calls his first wife ([name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]/[name_f]Betty[/name_f]) [name_f]Birdie[/name_f] and I always loved that!
