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

Carina in Canada
Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
