Spelling: Birdie or Byrdie

Despite the strong reactions to the name (both positive and negative), we’ve decided to name our baby girl [name_f]Birdie[/name_f]. :crazy_face::heart_eyes:

And I don’t usually love alternative spellings to classic names, but we are consider [name_f]Byrdie[/name_f] as an alternate spelling.

Should we stick with the classic spelling or give it a more modern twist? Thoughts?

I definitely prefer [name_f]Birdie[/name_f]. In that spelling, it’s super quirky and whimsical but on the right side of established to be a fun, fresh, sweet vintage choice. [name_f]Byrdie[/name_f] pushes it into gimmicky territory for me, I’m afraid. But [name_f]Birdie[/name_f] I love! :bird:


Thank you, This was helpful!

I prefer [name_f]Birdie[/name_f]! I like the “bird” part, it gives nice imagery of birds, whereas “byrd” doesn’t give me the same feeling.


I’d stick with the classic. It looks better to me and will be easier to wear. [name_f]Birdie[/name_f] is cute!


Another vote for [name_f]Birdie[/name_f] for all the comments given already!



[name_f]Birdie[/name_f]. Call me an [name_f]English[/name_f] teacher, but I like good spelling.

Looks like it’s BIRDIE for the win!

I think [name_f]Birdie[/name_f] is already a bold enough choice without adding the y. [name_f]Byrdie[/name_f] seems like a smoosh of several different trends - vintage names, diminutives, X-factor - to the point that it almost feels like a clash between them. Personally, if you love [name_f]Birdie[/name_f], I would stick with that spelling rather than modernizing.
