This is one of my best friend's name. And her and I both like the spelling, Abbie opposed to Abby.

I don't like this as a full name, I mean, when they get older, (and they will, like or not), Abbie on a file or something isn't exactly mature. Like this name and want to use it? Name her Abigail and call Abbie for short.

Abbie Hoffman was a self-identified communo-anarchist, social and political activist in the United States, co-founder of the Youth International Party ("Yippies"), and later, a fugitive from the law, who lived under an alias following a conviction for dealing cocaine.

Hoffman was arrested and tried for conspiracy and inciting to riot as a result of his role in protests that led to violent confrontations with police during the 1968 Democratic National Convention, with other individuals who became known, collectively, as the Chicago Seven.

Hoffman came to prominence in the 1960s, but practiced most of his activism in the 1970s, and has remained a symbol of the youth rebellion and radical activism of that decade.

I wouldn't use Abbie as a full name, I'd use Abigail. Because the child could choose what to be called.

I know two girls named Abbie. They're birth names are actually Abigail but they both much prefer being called Abbie. I think Abbie sounds more royal than Abigail. Abigail to me is quite ugly.

I actually prefer Abbie, just Abbie, as opposed to Abigail. To me it's a lot prettier than Abigail or Abby. Although many people don't know it, Abigail was once a slang term for a servant and in fact Abbie was more commonly used than Abigail or Abby. So, this name is actually more classic. I'm usually not one for nicknames as full names, but this is a very solid and beautiful stand alone name. I say choose this over the overused Abigail... Even though most would assume Abigail is her full name anyway.
