What's in a Name? Andie

I always thought naming a baby would be really difficult.  It was, but after finding out out she was a girl... it was a little easier than I thought.

TL and I both loved the name "Andie".  We don't know anyone closely with the name and we both like that it's kind of feminine, kind of masculine.  Plus, I love Andie Anderson in "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days".  When we tell people that's her name, most people tell us they think it is cute {but what are they supposed to say?} - and a lot of people ask us if it is short for something.  It's not.  
It's just Andie.  Andie Jean :)



A few weeks after making the decision on her name, my mom did a little research and sent me some of the meanings behind her name.

"1. Total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong. She has the whole world under her spell, and she can influence almost everyone she knows.

2. Wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. She's always up to something. She has a ton of energy, and most people can't handle her. She's very intense.  {yikes... does this mean we have our hands full??}

3. Very open. She communicates well, and she connects with other people easily.
She is a naturally creative person. Ideas just flow from her mind.

God, is that Andie? Where did she get that energy?

a. The most beautiful Goddess to ever walk the earth,

b. To be very kindhearted, Thoughtful, and Nice

c. Short for Andrea,

Dang she was so nice, such an Andie.

The most amazing, beautiful, gorgeous, perfect girl ever. Any guy would love to be with her. She has a great personality, wonderful smile, amazing eyes, adorable laugh, and is just perfection. She is also amazingly fun to be around.
"

I like that last part... we are so excited to meet our girl!  If she is anything like her parents... she won't often be short on energy and will likely be a lil crazy.

So excited to share lots of stuff coming up - including our big family baby shower & her nursery reveal (just waiting on a few more items to get here)!

I hope you're having a wonderful week.

i absolutely LOVE the name. If we ever had a girl I wanted a gender neutral name. Something like Kyle, Ryan, or Charlie. I think they sound like such fun names. So excited to see pictures from all of your baby festivities. XOXO

My name is Andrea, but one of my dad's students named Andie was the inspiration for my name. Love your cute little banner!!

Ana said...

That banner is so cute! (and so is her name!). M and I have chosen our kids' names years ago haha. I wonder if we're going to stick to those names when our time comes.

I love the name Andie. But it's most important that you and your husband do. Everyone has an opinion on baby names, but they don't all count equally. :)

I really do love the name! I forgot that Andie is the name of the girl in How to Lose A Guy In 10 Days- I love that movie!

Melissa Jo said...

That banner is SOOO CUTE!

Caroline said...

Love this. Her name is beautiful. People ask us if Eli's name is short for Elijah, but it's just Eli. That simple.

Ashley said...

I love all of the meanings, so beautiful! I have always been a fan of the name Andie, since Andie Anderson as well :) Can't wait for the nursery reveal!

I LOVE the name and also love the How to Lose a Guy movie! Adorable. And I really dig that it's not short for another name. :) I love the masculine/feminine names. They're my fav for sure. I can't believe little Andie is going to be here soon! So exciting!
