This name is used as a nickname for the name Hepzibah in George Eliot's novel Silas Marner, but I know a girl who also uses it as a nickname for September.

I don't like this name at all, it sounds like someone who can't pronounce 'Abby'.

Eppie is a shortened form of the name Hephzibah. [noted -ed]

Eppie is the pet name given to a child in the book "Silas Marner" by George Eliot. In the book she is found by Silas who adopts her as his own and names her after his mother and his sister, Hephzibah, and calls her Eppie for short. Later Squire Godfrey Cass reveals that she is his daughter from a previous marriage.

As someone who is called Eppie I have to say I like it although it does draw questions when I introduce myself. Some people do think you are trying to say Abby, and it is often misspelt but on the whole I think it is sweet name.

Awful. Sounds extremely immature and quite embarrassing even as a nickname. How could any woman called Eppie be taken seriously? Sounds more like a name for a dog.

Silas Marner is one of my favorite books. It is filled with hope, and shows how the love of child can change one's life for the better. Whenever I hear the name Eppie, I think of a little golden-haired child full of hope and joy.

To close to EpiPen to me, first thing I thought of.

Well, while to other people the name is reminiscent of "epi pen" or a dog name, or a mispronunciation of the nickname Abby, to me it makes me think of a Scottish ballad titled "Eppie Morrie". In it, Eppie is clearly a strong individual as she resists a forced marriage and returns home safely, free to do as she will with her life (at least in some versions). I think of a brave individual and not of a dog when I hear the name.
