I absolutely love [name_f]Billie[/name_f] and would totally consider it for my own daughter!

Such a lovely, lively name! I love it as a spunky standalone but also think it’s a nice casual pick for a girl whose full name is [name_f]Wilhelmina[/name_f] or even [name_f]Willa[/name_f]. [name_f]Billie[/name_f] is light, melodic, friendly.

[name_f]Billie[/name_f] would work as a full name here in the UK! (The last baby girl I met was named Ronnie.) I’ve always liked [name_f]Billie[/name_f].

[name_f]Love[/name_f] [name_f]Billie[/name_f] - fun, bubbly and bright, with both sweetness and spark.

It feels like it fits in with names like [name_f]Willa[/name_f], [name_f]Tilly[/name_f], [name_f]Lily[/name_f], [name_f]Tessa[/name_f] and [name_f]Hallie[/name_f], but also [name_f]Frankie[/name_f], [name_f]Quinn[/name_f] and [name_f]Hadley[/name_f].

It’s really grown on me over the past few years. Not my typical style, but there’s something charming about it. I like the [name_f]Billie[/name_f] [name_f]Holiday[/name_f] connection, too!

I love [name_f]Billie[/name_f]! She feels both breezy and distinctive, though I’m very influenced by my favorite singer, [name_f]Billie[/name_f] Marten. :partly_sunny:

I know it’s seen as a legitimate girl name, but I don’t love it personally. It feels a bit too masculine and childish for me, even though I love names like [name_f]Georgie[/name_f] (g)… I can’t explain it, there’s just something about the sound. It’s definitely usable, but I prefer [name_f]Bea[/name_f], [name_f]Betsy[/name_f], [name_f]Bettie[/name_f], [name_f]Bonnie[/name_f], [name_f]Birdie[/name_f], [name_f]Bridie[/name_f], [name_f]Millie[/name_f], [name_f]Lily[/name_f], [name_f]Tillie[/name_f] etc.

I really like [name_f]Billie[/name_f]!

[name_f]Billie[/name_f] definitely works as a stand-alone name I know a few and I always smile when I come across the name. She has a downtown jazz player feel she’d be the saxophone player and people would folk to see her. I think [name_f]Billie[/name_f] is great. I have [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] [name_f]Billie[/name_f] [name_f]Meadow[/name_f] on my list.

I absolutely love [name_f]Billie[/name_f] for a little girl, I don’t think I can use it, so I always love seeing it on other people’s lists. To me, [name_f]Billie[/name_f] is a joyful, bubbly, and fun name. I feel like it fits both a tomboy and a girly girl. A girl or woman named [name_f]Billie[/name_f] is an independent spitfire who knows exactly what she wants, but is also kind, loving, and gentle. [name_f]Billie[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f] is my current combination, but I also like:

[name_f]Billie[/name_f] [name_f]Isabelle[/name_f]
[name_f]Billie[/name_f] [name_f]Madeline[/name_f]
[name_f]Billie[/name_f] [name_f]Elena[/name_f]
[name_f]Billie[/name_f] [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f]
[name_f]Billie[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f]
[name_f]Billie[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f] +
[name_f]Billie[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]

I hope this helps!

I love [name_f]Billie[/name_f] for a girl! It’s so cute yet feels very substantial for a name that’s usually a nickname. I think [name_f]Billie[/name_f] [name_f]Eilish[/name_f] makes this name even more wearable in this day and age.

I know there are multiple high-profile women with this name, but [name_f]Billie[/name_f] (any spelling) will always be a middle aged man to me. :pensive:

I love it – she’s cute and spunky – and I’ve been heavily considering it as a nickname for [name_f]Willow[/name_f] lately

I don’t mind it as a nickname but, like the name [name_f]Ellie[/name_f], it feels a bit babyish/sluggish/sloppy to me. So, no, not a name I’d choose but I can see why it’s having a moment as a short, L name.
