    Oh nice to meet another Fiona! It's a beautiful name. My struggle has just been I guess it feels so grown up for a little baby..and I've wanted something a little cuter feeling. Fibie has a similar feel, very cute. I like the ie sound at the end of names. I love Effie which is funny b/c as a kid I had several teachers named Effie and at the time thought it was the ugliest most old woman name haha. Now I find it adorable for a little girl. And I agree w/ Taz, Fifi is the most obvious choice for a nn which I'm not a big fan of.

    Fiona's a gorgeous name but I really, really dislike Effie.

    Definitely use Effie as a nn if you like it! Another possible nn is Fina which I like a lot. It means something like 'the pretty one' in Swedish.

    Fina is very sweet, I agree! I find it hard to call her anything but Fiona to be honest. My first daughter never had any nicknames b/c her name is Mhairi, just doesn't need one. I just never feel natural when I try and call her Effie or any of the other nicknames I've tried. But maybe as she gets older (she's 5 months) it will feel more natural.

    Yes, that good work.

    I prefer the nn Fia or Fina for Fiona. But Effie would work fine too.
