Jesse vs. Andi
Which of these names would be best suited for my daughter? Positive or negative comments on either of these names or middle name ideas are all appreciated!
The Top Baby Name is...
Jesse is a male name. It's Hebrew, meaning "gift." There's Jessie, a girl's name that is traditionally from Jean, but can also be from Jessica, Jessamine, etc. Jessie is darling, but I prefer it as a nickname to something fuller.
Andi looks feminine. If it were from something full like Andromeda, Sandrine, Miranda, Candace, etc., I'd be all for it.
Of the two Andi would be my preference. But it's a vote by default, not an enthusiastic one. Good luck! :0)
Jesse is the male spelling. Jessie would be the girl.
I would spell it Andie.
They are too nicknamey for me, so I wouldn't use either. I would pick Andie over Jessie.
Hi! I'm the original poster. If you don't like either of these names, I would love to hear if you have suggestions as to names like these but less "nicknamey" that would be better suited for a little (or big) girl.

Charlotte nn Charlie
Both names are cute but feel more like nicknames than first names. Would you consider a more formal choice and using Jessie or Andi as nicknames?
I adore Andy and Jesse for boys. But for a girl I would give her a more formal first name and use one as a nickname. I would pick Jessica and use Jessie or Jessy.

I actually like both names for a girl but dislike your spellings.
I prefer Jessie & Andie; Andie is my favorite!
I voted for Jesse, but I would spell it Jessie for a girl. Andy I would spell with a Y, but I still don't like it.
