I view Eden as a girls' name, not unisex. JMHO :), sorry.

FWIW, I have an Oliver and an Eli...I think Levi would be beautiful as well.

Wanted to throw my 2 cents in...I'm in my early 40s and have been dissatisfied w/ my name since childhood (Sh@nnon). I started going by a "nickname", Sally, about 6 months ago. I hated that I...
I love Saiorse...my favorite from your list. It is a favorite of mine as well. Seems you like French and Irish names? I love Severine and Justine (may be too 80s for you).

I took a new nickname a few months ago which I've been going by exclusively when I meet new people. I feel great about it and feel that my nickname captures (lighter & fun name) my personality much...

Thanks, guys, for your thoughtful replies. I do agree it isn't necessary to change my mn in order to use S@lly, I just really like the idea of having a very pretty mn. I guess my thought is that it...

Hi Berries -
I haven't ever been thrilled with my name (first and middle) - Sh@nnon L/nn...finally figured out why.
It isn't very feminine sounding to me (and I love feminine names - not too...

I need some advice from fellow berries who go by nicknames (especially nicknames that are not intuitively derived from their full names).
I've always wanted a nickname and have finally found...

Zoe is Greek for life...I think that would be a lovely middle name.
Chloe is Greek for spring...spring is the season of new life.
Any spring name would be most fitting, IMO.
Hope is a really...
I have an Oliver Charles so of course I think Charles makes a divine middle name!
It worked well for us because we love Charles but Charlie, Chuck, Chas - not so much.

Upon thinking about this more, I've decided on Sallie...my initials are SLL, so I think it's not too big a stretch.
How should I start to make this transition? Will people think I'm weird for...

Thanks Lucy! I think I'll add the nickname to my fb page, as well as put out a brief explanation. Exciting!

Okay, berries, I've come to the decision that I want to start introducing myself by a nickname.
I like Skye, Meadow, Willow, Summer, Serenity, etc would all be great
'hippie ' names, although I love them as well. (i'm a far left liberal, not a hippie though) :)
YES, you need to take prenatal vitamins prior to conceiving and all the way through your pregnancy. Folic acid is very very important for a develop embryo/fetus, as it can help to prevent spina...
I would also second the suggestions of www.kellymom.com. It is great!
If it were me, I'd plan to nurse in the morning before leaving for work/daycare, pump 2 or 3 x at work, then nurse at...
I pumped exclusively for 14 months for my daughter. She was unable to breastfeed due to medical issues. It is very tough, I won't kid you. You have to be very motivated to do it.
If you bf...

Hi berries -
I'm 42 and have never been comfortable with my name - Shannon. I think it's a fine name in and of itself, but it doesn't fit me as I LOVE nicknames and have since I was a kid. My 3...

Thanks for your thoughts, ashthedreamer and lucialucentum...
I'm fond of the nickname Zanna...Lucia, your suggestions of Hannah and Sanna got my wheels turning. I think this could totally work...

I've been considering making a name change (first considered legally changing first or middle name, but have since reconsidered and just want a nickname I can use).
First name is...
My twin boys are Eli Jasper and Oliver Charles, so I'm taken with the Oliver suggestion. I really like Graham as well. We like British sounding names, where Jasper has been popular for a long time....
Love August, nn Gus. Have you considered August Leo or August Hawkins? I really like August Leo Manor, nn Gus. Adorable nn but very sophisticated-sounding full name. Also he could go by Leo at...

You could consider using Clarissa as her mn...Grace Clarissa sounds very pretty. I love the name Zinnia as well! Clarissa is uncommon to hear but quite pretty and feminine.
I tend to agree with...
WDYT of Maya? I think it sounds pretty with your last name. :)
