This is my sister's nickname; her name is Sarah Addison, but we call her Addie, for my great-grandmother, Adele "Addie" Francis. Plus, I think "Addie" better fits her personality; "Sarah", while lovely, sounds too restrictive and formal for her.

Addie was the name of a young cowardess princess who found her courage in Gail Carson Levine's "The Two Princesses of Bamarre".

Besides the obvious Adelaide, Addie can also be a pet form for the names Adele, Adela, Adelina, Adeline, Addison, Adina/Adena, and Adelaida, among other "Ad-" names.

I find Addie a nice name. Nothing complicated, just a simple name. I like it as a nickname for Addison.

I like this as a boy's name. It reminds me of a cute little freckled boy in a baseball cap.

This, along with Adi, can be a short name for two of my favourite names - Adhara and Addison.

If I ever have a daughter I may name her Adell (after my Granny) and call her Addie for short!

The name is also of German descent. Pronounced Ah'dee. This is the name of my great-grandmother, a German immigrant and the namesake of my daughter.

I am known to everyone by the name Addie, though my given name is Adrianne. I like the name Addie, it's short, sweet and not very common. I almost never meet another Addie.

This name is so much better that Addison, but I'll never use it.

Very cute- I've seen this used as a nickname for 'Adelyn', which is just Madelyn without the M?

I love Addie as a nickname for Madelynne.
PinkCarnation  11/20/2009
"Madelynne" isn't a name... It's just a kre8tiv spelling of Madelyn. But I was actually going to say the same thing, I would use this as a nickname for Madelyn/Madeline/Madeleine. It's much prettier, unique, and more classic than the horrible "Maddie".

I think the name Addie is an amazing name for a girl.
TinyLittleOboe  11/27/2014
I like it for a nickname. But in the old days many nicknames were given as first names. So it is fine.

I like the name Addie but I'd never name my kid Addie.
