 Maybe name her Effie Adalie. You will get the name you like and will DH. That's probably what I would do.

Its a family name so that's one thing. When I read the name I immediately went to a pg version of the "f" word..."effing ______". If those are the only 2 names to choose from, I would make Effie the middle.

he is dead set on adalie being the first name lol.. he says i got to pick 2 girl names already so he gets to pick this time and i can pick the middle name. i don't think i like adalie effie though, don't think it has a good ring to it lol

Personally, I wouldn't name a girl Effie - that has so much potential to destroy her in school with teasing.....

I like Adalie better than Effie.

I was called Effie when I was little as a nickname for Stephanie. I didn't like it. I like Adalie better.

I agree with these ladies... HOWEVER it's your baby! I do think that your DH should get a chance to name one of your children. But that's just my opinion. I like the name he chose. Good luck!

In addition to what has been posted, I'd like to throw out that Effie is a character from the Hunger Games Trilogy, which is very popular right now. There's the very real possibility that you'd have to deal with the "oh, after hunger games"? bit.

I love Hunger Games, too. But could never name a kid Prim...if someone yelled my kid's name, it'd be so hard to resist yelling "I volunteer as tribute!!!"
