    He Says Indie, Hattie & Romy, I say Indigo, Harriet and Rosemary! Help :)

    Hi Guys, I haven't posted in a while! Hope you're all well

    So my partner looked over a long list of names I liked for both genders yesterday and gave his opinions. It soon become clear he's much more in to the cutesy nicknamey type names, and while I like some (Claudie, Molly), I mostly prefer longer names with the shorter forms as nicknames.

    Where do you stand on this issue? And which of the following do u prefer? His faves are the first names, mine are the alternatives!

    Hattie - Harriet (he used to like Harriet, now decides he doesn't so I'm making him reconsider! Lol)
    Indie - Indigo (He likes Indigo but prefers Indie, India isn't an option)
    Romy - Rosemary (this is a definite no so I came up with Rosalia, Rosaline and Rosamay that he's ok with, thoughts?)
    Angelica - Anneliese (not quite the same premise but his fave is still "cuter" and mine more sophisticated imo, I like both though so thoughts?)
    Lila - Lilac (again not quite the same, but he prefers the more common Lila and I prefer the more unusual Lilac - thoughts?)
    Tessa & Jessamine - we actually both like both equally here, but can't use both, so which do you prefer?

    Thanks for the input guys!

    Hattie - Harriet
    Harriet. hattie is not my style. I'd use Harry as a nn if anything
    Indie - Indigo
    Prefer Indigo but would end up usig Indie as a nn
    Romy - Rosemary
    Romy. Rosemary isn't my style and Romy isn't a natural nn for it for me
    Angelica - Anneliese
    Anneliese is more classic so I prefer that. Annie is an ok nn
    Lila - Lilac
    Lila (prefer the Lilah spelling though). Lilac just sounds wrong to me
    Tessa & Jessamine
    Neither? Jessamine sounds more complete if I had to chose but I'd only go for Jess/Jessie as a nn.

    I think this shouldn't be a problem. If you love Harriet (for example) and he loves Hattie you could give the baby Harriet officially but your husband could use the nn on a day to day basis.

    I prefer:

    Harriet (though don't really like it)
    Indie -- because I dislike Indigo a lot. May I suggest Indira for the nn Indie?
    Angelica -- may I suggest Angelique? It's more sophisticated that Angelica, but has the same sort of sounds
    Lila
    Jessamine

    For Romy, I don't like any of your names with the nn Romy (Rosemary is the only one I think it sort of works with), but I do think Romy should be a nn for a longer name (my favorite way to get Romy is Andromeda or Romilly), how about:

    Jeroma
    Merom
    Roma
    Romana
    Romea
    Romia
    Romilda
    Romina

    As a general rule, I prefer the longer names to the nicknames, just because it gives them something to grow into, and more nn options in case your Harriet doesn't look like a Hattie, but is a tomboy who prefers Harry.
    I've bolded my preferences:
    Hattie - Harriet
    Indie - Indigo
    Romy - Rosemary
    Angelica - Anneliese
    Lila - Lilac
    Tessa & Jessamine

    I think both Lila and Tessa are all right, I just prefer Lilac and Jessamine to them a bit more. As far as Indie, as pp said, you could try Indira, or maybe Indre (prn In-drah)?
