Won’t vs. Age vs. Well?

We had decided on the name Ellie for our baby girl however we’ve been told by people that it won’t age well! We had chosen it to honor my great-grandmother, Eleanor, but we don’t like any full name for Ellie. We’ve been told it can’t stand on its own, that she will "hate not having a professional name" and that Ellie is too cutesy for an adult. What do you guys think; can Ellie stand on its own and will it age well or at least okay? Or should we scratch it and start over? Thanks!

Genie's Mailbag

Terra in Oklahoma
It's our first child, and she's a girl. Our last name is Watson. I was going for Suzanna Adelle for a while, but grew not to like it. I've also liked the names Skyler Dean and Stormy Kay in the past, but decided against them. Is there any way you can help?
Baby Name Genie:
With names like Skyler and Stormy, I’m seeing a definite meteorological theme here. Not to rain on your parade, but the forecast shows a different name for your daughter. Name her Sadie Joy for a baby girl with a sunny disposition.
