MN for Nell?
I keep coming back to my love for the name Nell if it's a girl. I love the nn Nellie. I have tried to think of longer forms that would equal nn Nellie but I just feel if I want her to always be called Nell/Nellie then I should just go w/ Nell otherwise at school she would likely get called the proper name. My problem w/ Nell is that it's such a difficult name to come up w/ a middle! My mom's name is Marie and while it normally goes w/ everything, not sure it works w/ Nell? Nell Marie...what do you think? Other suggestions?? I think it needs something long to balance the shortness but we don't really have a lot of family names that are long so I am drawing blank. I think Nell sounds good w/ a vowel sound for middle too but again, not sure what to use? I like Nell Elizabeth but of course have a daughter w/ mn Elizabeth already! Any feedback/suggestions?
Would you be open to naming her Nellie instead? It's just much easier to fit a middle name with. I also think Nell Marie goes pretty well together.
Nell Marin (ma-RINN)
Nell Corrine (core-INN)
I agree that Nellie flows better w/ most middles..just worry if that's too nick namey for a first name?? I like Nell Olivia a lot. Nellie Marie would sound better than Nell Marie for sure in my opinion.
I would really want a longer form if it was me.
