    Scottish/Irish/Gaelic/Celtic name for nn Nellie?

    Can anyone think of a Scottish/Irish/Gaelic/Celtic name that could use the nickname Nellie?? I am loving Nellie but don't like the usual Eleanor, Penelope, Helen, etc. As I've posted before, our first daughter is Mhairi and would like to stick w/ gaelic theme if possible but having trouble finding anything we like. Wondering if Nellie could be use as a nn for Eilidh??? Or is that way too far a stretch? Any suggestions? Doesn't have to be scottish as Irish would work too but anything w/ a gaelic/celtic flair. Thanks!

    Eilidh comes from Eleanor. The original Gaelic spelling of Eleanor is Eilionoir.

    Finella was the one I thought of after Eleanor and it's variants (Eileen, etc.).
