    Thank you, that's all really helpful. I prefer the original pronunciation I think but in the UK an 'ie' ending is pronounced 'ee', so I imagine we'd be constantly correcting people unless we altered...

    Nicknames for Elizabeth

    There are loads it seems!

    Can you help me list them? Particularly some of the more obscure ones, it'd be nice to have an unusual nickname with such a well known full name I think.

  6. When the name you fall in love with is not one you expected to like!

    We've had a really hard time finding the perfect name for our fourth baby, we've been backwards and forwards and nothing seemed quite right. Any name one of us loved, the other didn't etc. I thought...

    Asteria is a little close to hysteria for me, I like Astera though. Aster was on my list for a while but it doesn't fit with my other kids names.

    I think it's one of those names where you can influence the pronunciation because not many people will be familiar with it.

    I'm in the UK and naturally say Oh-tilly (pronouncing the first sound...

    I deliberately picked long, formal names with a lot of nickname potential so that it gave us scope to tailor the name slightly to fit the child and allows them to reinvent themselves if they wish.

    I have name fatigue!

    I'm all named out! I'm expecting baby #4 in August and I'm finding it really tough to decide on her name, I've read lists and lists of names, and am left feeling a bit 'meh' over nearly all of them....
