    Does this flow well/thoughts on this nickname?

    Two unrelated questions;

    1) Does the name Freya Richard clash? Like do the R sounds through it off?

    2) Thoughts on the nickname Cissy (pronounced like Kissy) for Calista? Is it too cutesy?

    I think that the repeated R sounds in Freya Richard make it slightly difficult to say, and it becomes a bit of a tongue twister when said quickly! Just out of interest, is the name Richard a family name? Or is there another special reason behind it? My middle name is very masculine and it's a family name, so I always wonder about others' - I don't mean to pry!

    I think that a girl nicknamed 'Kissy', even if it were spelt differently, would be subject to possible unwelcome attention etc. at school - jokes along the lines of, "Give us a kiss-y, Cissy!" would most probably be rife. But if it were just a family nickname for when she is little, Cissy certainly sounds sweet. I love Calla myself, but I always have, so I'm a bit biased!

    Good luck.

    Freya Richard is fine.
    Cissy/Kissy/Sissy are all unfortunate (Sissy a bit less so), and don't make much sense for Calista.

    Haha, you're not prying don't worry! Richard would actually be the last name, not the middle (it's not the actual last name but close enough sound-wise).

    Freya Richards is lovely.
    I would thought Cissy is nn for Cecily or Celeste and Kissy nn for Kristen or Christine.
    Sorry for bad English, I am from other country
