Cute nickname for Fiona
I loved the idea another Berry suggested of using Sonny however we have a cousin w. this name. Wondering if anyone has any other creative suggestions for a nick name for Fiona Lilidh as I'm struggling with her name. I don't like any of the typical Fiona nicknames ie Fia, Fee, Fifi, onie, etc etc.
I also loved the Nellie suggestion (derived from Na sound in Fiona and Li sound in Lilidh prn Lily by the way).
Any other suggestions? Sorry what a confusing post haha I am just so torn and struggling here.
Maybe Fin? I think masculine nicknames can be really cute when the full name is frilly.
Sorry for the double post, but I thought it fit better on this thread than the previous one :)
Possible nicknames are:
Fannie (might have negative connotations)
For a stretch, Nellie, Nallie, Annie/Ana, Nala, Yonnie, or Finlie/Finnlie/Finnie would work! Good luck!
Thank you everyone! Lots of choices..I think nicknames kind of just have to flow naturally but least gives me some options to try out and maybe something will stick.
We have a Fiona at the daycare, and I accidentally called her Fina one day (a smoosh of her name and her best friend at daycare's name). I think Fina could totally work as a nickname, as could Nina.
I like the Nellie idea too, but would prefer something like Nallie or Naly.
Since Fiona is the feminine form of Fionn which is from Finniegan, what about Fin/Finn?
I like the idea combining Fiona and Lilidh to reach a nn. Maybe Ulie, Olie or Nollie? They are kinda funky. Working with Lilidh gets you closer to that --ee sound you prefer in Sadie.
Fion? Ona? NaNa? Filly? Fio?
Just had a huuuuuge chat with my best friend and Fiona's god mother..and she suggested Fillie and I think I LOVE it. Going to try it out and hopefully will feel natural and allow me to have a cutesy nickname for her and then hopefully as she gets older Fiona will feel more natural since it feels more mature maybe.
Fillie's very cute, especially since a filly is a young female horse (which I guess could be a negative connotation, but to me it's just adorable). Good luck!
