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!

We like Verity for our daughter's first name, for both the meaning and uniqueness, but we are struggling with a middle name. I love cacti/succulents and thought it would be neat to pick the name of a unique plant. Hoping for something different but still pronounceable and feminine. Any ideas?
Baby Name Genie:
Not to be prickly, but this cacti question is a thorny one. Let me sharpen my quill and take a stab at it. Name your daughter Verity Jade, if you don't want a few barbs thrown your way.
