"My name is Edie, not a nickname for any other name, just Edie. Growing up I got/get called Eddie and it use to upset me so much. I always hated my name when everyone else -once they got passed the Eddie- seemed to enjoy it. But as I get older the more I come to appreciate my name and accept it since it is so rare and original. What also helps is that famous people with the name Edie seem to be so unique and celebrities seem to love the name for example, Keira Knightly named her daughter Edie. It is such an exciting moment meeting someone or even hearing of someone with the same name, especially one as rare as Edie!" Mar. 6, 2017:

"People all too often pronounce this name as Eddie, presumably because they don't know the rules of spelling and how it affects pronunciation. This is bothersome, bordering on rude and definitely ignorant." Apr. 16, 2016:
