    How to get to nn "Pim" for a girl

    I know it is considered a boy's name, but I thought Pim would be such cute girl nn. Too bad Primrose is part of the whole Hunger Games thing...Prim is such a cute nn too!

    Would love creative ways to get to the nn "Pim"
    No Reserves. No Retreats. No Regrets.

    Primrose was around long before that YA book series... and will be around long after too. The vast majority of people wouldn't relate the name Primrose to the Hunger Games at all, so you shouldn't let that stop you.

    Primeveire, Primina, or Prima are also names that could, with a stretch, get you to the nickname Pim (which is a darling nickname, by the way). Another, more fun way, would be to give the baby girl the initials P I M and just call her Pim for short. For example, Penelope Isabelle Maren or Patricia Iris Madeleine.

    I don't relate Primrose to The Hunger Games at all.

    But otherwise:

    Philomena/ Philomela
    Pia (with a mn begninning M - E.g. Pia Madeline)
    Pippa (Same as above: Pippa Madeline)
    Premilla
    Primula

    These are dated, but I could see Pim coming out of them:

    Pamela
    Permelia
    Parmelia

    You could also consider using a first name that starts with P and a middle name that starts with M, and you could call her Pim based on her initials.

    It would be easiest if the name had all the letters in it but I don't think this matters too much - I pretty much think nicknames barely need a reason to be there! (e.g. Primarosa, Penzima, Prima or Purnima)

    Examples which all have PI in could be:

    Alpina
    Arpina
    Arpita
    Elpidia
    Elspie
    Lupina
    Olympia
    Piedad
    Pire/Pira
    Prosperpina/Proserpine


    Another way of achieving Pim (utterly adorable by the way!) could be a 'P' first-name and an 'IM' middle name (e.g. Poppy Imogen)
    However, names beginning with IM are not very common, and most are not really very appealing to me...

    Examples could be:
    P-names
    Pabiola
    Pamelia
    Paloma
    Pandora
    Pansy
    Panthea
    Parthenia
    Pascaline
    Penina
    Perpetua
    Persis
    Petrina
    Phaedra/Phaidra

    IM names
    Imogen/Imogene
    Immanuela
    Immaculata
    Imelda
    Ima
    Imani/Imanie
    Imara

    Also, a close relative has the middle name Pim - it's a family name. With this said, you could simply have Pim as her middle name - I myself have a traditionally boy's 'surnamey' name as my middle (again, family name), and I absolutely love it. (I also love Pim with alliteration - Perdita Pim or Pieta/Pietra Pim have a lovely lilting quality for me)

    Examples could be (sorry - random guesses of names you might like?!):

    Anneliese Pim
    Beatrice Pim
    Celia/Caelia/Cielia Pim
    Celandine Pim
    Francesca Pim
    Ginevra Pim
    Magdalena Pim
    Iola/Iona Pim
    Maria Pim
    Merida Pim
    Rosalie Pim
    Rosemary Pim
    Tansy Pim (quite short but very sweet)

    Hope this helps - sorry if not. Good luck - Pim is lovely!
