I can see the appeal.....
....however, I think a big part of people's dislike may be because it is one of the hardest months to pronounce. The "brew-air-ee" in particular is a bit of a tongue...
Those are some good examples, I especially like Juliet nn Jet :)
Anyone have any more?
Juniper works well, but if you're thinking of names for siblings I agree that Max seems more like the odd one out, mainly because he's shorter and less formal. Maxwell feels like a better fit. And...

Thanks mainly to Joss Whedon, Joss is perfectly acceptable as a nickname for Joseph :)
What are some "cool" and spunky nicknames that you know of?
Some of the ones I've seen suggested or used before are Jinx for Giacinta, Wish for Wisteria and Dash for Dashiell. Just for fun, I was...
Dislike Greta. Plus it seems a little like the odd one out on your list.
No - I profiled this name on my blog last year and someone wrote in to say that their aunt and their cousin are both named Evanora, so I see no reason why it can't work.
I love it - it's so pretty...

Frilly and magical? How about:

Zephyrine (just saw this on another thread)

Clea Zephyrine sounds like a fairy princess - light and pretty and melodious :)
I have a two year old niece named Amber, and I was surprised by the choice at first because it does seem a little outdated, but it is a sweet name that suits her well.
I'd suggest picking the...

Sorry to say, I'm leaning on the side of extremely hard to wear. If you look at how people who currently have the name Wilma feel about their name on babynamesworld.parentsconnect.com, 53% say they...
Also a fan of the flower - they're gorgeous - but spoken it sounds a bit like a cutesy nickname for a male organ (sorry).
I'd leave it as a middle if you want to use it because personal meaning...
Nothing is wrong with it!
We have friends who had a Henry in 2013, little brother to Edward. They chose them both for similar reasons you give above - classic names, not too obscure but not too...
I always thought it was Peht-rah, which would be pretty close to the way you usually say it. That doesn't mean I'm right though!
Maybe Dantea can help, as it's a Greek name.

How about Arwen?
I love the idea of Winchester, mainly because I'm also a fan of Supernatural.
I've only really pictured it on a boy, although even then I'm not sure I'd be brave enough to use it as a first. On a...
Love Lux, it's simple, stylish and cool.
Lux Reverie is beautiful, although since both are unusual names you may want to change one to something a little less unfamiliar to "balance" it. Or not :)

Hmmm, how about:
Ivan and Wesley is fine, but if you're worried about the association there's always Westley (although then you get the Princess Bride association). And for some reason I much prefer the nickname West...
Another one here - I did it at Uni about 15 years ago now, and I remember being told that we're rare too ;)
I also heard a theory that some people may change over time, but I haven't done it again...
Have you tried using the Nameberry supersearch function? One of the cool things about it is you can search by the number of syllables you want.

Hopefully no repeats :)

I actually like all three, but voted for Oriana because I think it feels a little "younger". I do like the nickname Tavi or Tavia for Octavia, but it feels like a very serious name, and I'm a little...

I love a lot of these!
One that I've found has stuck in my head is Adria, from SG1. Not the nicest character, but I love the sound of the name. And my dad's name is Adrian so it feels fitting :)
