    Question How do I get to these boyish Nicknames?? ( for a girl!)

    I have posted about how to get to a few nn's like Lou etc. before... But I was hoping to get help on how to get to MORE tomboyish nicknames for a girl!!( some have very obvious names that would lead to the nn... im looking for OTHER options)

    I don't mind a bit of a stretch but not toooo far...

    NN's:

    Van
    Moe
    Lee
    Lane
    Mac ( without the obvious McKenzie etc.)
    Jet
    Cy/Sy
    Ned
    Kit ( anything besides katherine?)
    Sully
    Ray


    And any other girl names with a BOY nickname suggestions are VERY VERY VERY welcome!!!!

    Thanks sooooo much!
    on the search for the perfect girls name!

    Most of these are just the first things that came to mind and nothing too great...

    Van - Valencia, Raven
    Moe - Maureen, Maura (I know a Maureen nn Moe)
    Lee - Leanne, Leanna, Leah
    Lane - Elaine, Melanie
    Mac - Lilac (I know that's a bit of a stretch, but with an M middle it could work)
    Jet - Janet, Jetta
    Cy/Sy - Sybil (I know it's the wrong pronunciation but it's the right letters at least), Cyrilla, Isabel
    Ned - Nellie/Nell, Enid
    Kit- Christine/Christina
    Sully - Solandra (I think that's a name? Maybe it's a car make. I can't remember), Isolde/Iseult
    Ray - Raven, Orianna

    Hope that helped!
