    unusual elegant names with spunky nicknames?

    I find it a challenge to find beautiful elegant girls names with nicknames that I love as much as the full version inspite of having a very different feel! I want my baby to have a flexible name with options I like nicknames that work as stand alone names...If they're a bit quirky or sweet all the better! Here are some of my favourites...would love to hear your thoughts or favourites from the list. Also can you think of any other good names in a similar vein that might go with these nicknames or any totally new suggestions? and they don't all have to be conventional pairings...I invented some of these pairings or at least i haven't heard them paired before!

    Oo, some of those are really interesting! I love Azaria nn Aria. And while I don't like Angel, I'd have never noticed it from Evangeline, so that's quite neat.

    Jonquil- Jonny
    Lavender - Ven
    Olympia - Pia
    Scarlett - Scout
    Ursula - Sully
    Temperance - Pepper
    Tabitha - Bit/ Bitty

    Well, I'm naming my baby Estelle. Nicknames for that could be Elle or Stella, or even Estie. Elle and Stella could definitely be stand alone names, and Estie is very quirky, sweet and spunky!
