Other Origin(s):German
Meaning:Bright fame
Berdie is a chirpy girl's nickname for Roberta that is poised for a major comeback among the next generation of tots! Like its more popular twin, Birdie, it's rooted in the Old English surname Byrd and the German name Beraht, meaning "bright" or "famous." If you're a lover of musicals, you may recall diving into the 1963 film Bye Bye Birdie during your pre-teen years. If it wasn't the hunky Elvis-inspired character, Conrad that stole your heart, it was the poodle skirts and killer dance moves. Vintage is back, and Berdie's in the front-row seat!
