    Question Can these be full names?

    Recently I've started liking the names Hattie and Minnie a lot, but I didn't know if they sounded okay for being full names. Do you think either of these names can stand on their own?

    P.S.- Don't let my username fool you, Hattie isn't my name, just a nickname I got from my last name, which made me think about the name in the first place

    I like Hattie fine on it's own. Minnie doesn't really bother me on it's own either BUT it's too Minnie Mouse to be usable on it's own to me. If that makes sense.

    Minerva nn Minnie would be fine, but on it's own it's too much bc of the character.

    I'm very particular about "nicknames as first names". Some work well through all stages of life and some just don't sound grown-up enough to take seriously. I think Hattie can stand on its own. However, Minnie is too cutesy for my comfort level. "Mini" is another word for "small size" so I personally don't think it ages well.
    All the best,

    I think both are fine when they're a kid, but as adults, they'd probably be grateful to have Harriet and Minerva as full names.

    Hattie and Minnie are cute, but I rather them as nicknames.
