Longer Name for Ivy
Hi All! My husband and I have decided to name our second baby girl Ivy (our first is Harlow)! However, we really want to have a longer, strong full name for her. What could Ivy be a nickname for? We are thinking Iverson (we know its masculine! Don't care!!) or Iverlyn (don't love that it's a made up name). Also open to suggestions for MNs! Thanks
I think someone else posted this question recently. I remember people suggested Ivana and Ivory. Personally I think Ivy is a stand-alone name and I like it much better as just Ivy (it is also my favorite girl's name ever!).
I'm with shieldsc that Ivy is great as a stand-alone name.
Also Ivanka, Ivoire, Inverness (geographical, town in Scotland and Florida)
These are stretches, but might work for you:
I actually think Ivy goes with Harlow really well, more so than a longer name. Good luck! :)
I think Ivy is gorgeous! Wonderful on it's own. I find Iverson to be ridiculous. It is one of those names that sound like the parents are trying to come up with a cool name.
I like Ivy just on its own, maybe paired with a long middle name like Ivy Katherine or Ivy Josephine, etc. Or, you could use another I name and a V middle name IV=Ivy. Some nice ones:
Personally, I don't like any name for a girl that has son in it, and which literally means Son of _________. I also don't like surnames as first names for girls unless there is family significance (maiden name, etc), but, to each his own!
I would go with Ivory if you wanted to make it longer.
But overall Ivy can stand on it's own.
I do like the above suggestion of pairing Ivy with a longer mn, this would balance it all out.
