    Nicknames for Mary?

    Hi, berries! My name is Mary, and I'm currently looking for a new nickname before I go to university this autumn. I don't dislike my name, but both my first and middle names are from my family, and I've always wanted a name of my own in some way or another - I figured this would be a great time to try out a possible nickname. In the past I've been called Maz or Mazza, but I'm not too fond of them. Does anyone have any suggestions that could make Mary seem a little more fresh? The only one I have so far is Mimi (I heard that was a nickname of Maria...?) but other than that I'm stuck.

    Thanks!
    Mimi

    Agreed, but I prefer it spelled Mae.

    What's your middle name, if you don't mind sharing? Other than Mae/May, I'm not sure Mary has too many other simpler forms but there are several longer forms of Mary.

    Oh, I suppose you could use Ree.

    Molly and Polly are traditional nicknames for Mary. Maisy could also work. What's your middle name, are there any possibilities you like there?

    ~ Casilda Josephine "Cassie Jo" ~ Zaccheaus Westley "Zeke" ~
