    The nicknames almost always evoke a different color for me, I thought that's how most people saw them! I'm interested in how you see these names.
    Isabelle (Belle/Bella)- dark sandy brown. Belle and Bella are a sandy yellow.
    Arianne (Ari)- red for both
    Olivia (Liv/Olive)- dark, forrest green. Olive is actually the color of a green olive, and Liv is bright green.
    Violet- green. This one's weird because Violet is literally a color and it's purple, but the word sounds green.
    Rachel - light reddish pink
    Liliana (Lily)- Lily= light, yellowy green, Liliana= dark, purplish green
    Eleni (Leni)- Eleni= pink Leni= dark green
    Hannah (Annie)- Annie= bright red, Hannah= dull yellow
    Eve (Evie)- For some reason, Eve is more like a texture to me, like glass. I guess the color would be clear, but it's really more of a feeling name for me. Evie I see as bright, almost white, but with little hints of yellow, red, and green; it's more of a light than a color.
    Charlotte (Lola)- Charlotte has a texture as well, in this case kind of fleece-like. It's not warm, though, just textured. If I had to pick a Charlotte color, I think it would be a dark, brownish-blakish gray, but a texture comes more easily for this name. Lola is green.
    Josephine/Johanna (Posy)- Posy = reddish brown. Josephine and Johanna are both muted orange, like autumn, but Johanna is a bit more brown-red and Josephine is more orange, if that makes any sense.

    Isabelle (Belle/Bella Black. I just imagine a woman in black lace.
    Arianne (Ari) Lavendar
    Olivia (Liv/Olive) a lush leafy green.
    Violet Dark purple of course
    Rachel Blue
    Liliana (Lily) White
    Charlotte (Lola) A bright pink.
    Eleni (Leni) Royal blue
    Hannah (Annie) Peachy coral shade for Hannah, for Annie is more of a sunshine yellow.
    Eve (Evie) A light blue
    Josephine/Johanna (Posy) Red

    If the nns evoke a different color than the full name, I'd be interested in that, as well.

    Thanks, ladies!
    I don't usually associate colors with names so I was a bit taken back with the recent posts alluding to that. But I put forth my best effort to be a good sport.
    Not so done having children after all. We're not ready for TTC quite yet but when we do get pregnant,the husband handed sole naming rights over to his name obsessed wife!

    Bouncing Baby Boy: Tristan Marcel * Ambrose Galahad* Gabriel Beauregard
    Little Lady: Josephine Adele * Lena Josephine* Lorelei Nicole* Fleur Josephine
