    Nickname for Holiday?

    I am suddenly loving Holiday for a girl, to go with my Henry (sometimes known as Atlas, his middle).

    Can anyone think of a nickname besides the obvious Hollie/y?

    Is it too "unique" to match the classic Henry? I went with classic fn and unique middle with my son, so wonder if Holiday is better suited as a mn to match this style? But I am loving the idea of another H first name, and the quirkiness of Holiday is appealing to me! Are they too matchy?

    Also, what do you think of Atlas and Holiday? Too vacation-y sounding together?

    Perhaps I am talking myself right out of loving Holiday. But it is so cute and spunky!

    Your thoughts are appreciated!

    Looking at your son's name and the names in your signature, Holiday is definitely better suited as a middle name. Henry and Holiday are incredibly mismatched yet still look and sound matchy.

    Liddy?

    I am infatuated with Holiday, but unfortunately I don't think it goes with Henry at all. Liddy is a good nn besides holly.

    I have a soft spot for Holiday too- i love that its Holly Golightly's full name in Breakfast at Tiffanys. I think it could work with Henry, it would bring out the quirky, indie side of Henry. I can't think of any new nicknames though, sorry.
