    Can short names work as first names? or do sound too nm-ish?

    I always loved frilly names for girls like Amelia, Cecilia, Cordelia. I still love them, but lately im falling for short names as first names and im not sure if they would be too nick nameish or middle nameish. Do you think they would be usable ?

    so here are my new favorites :

    Nina
    Veda
    Zara
    Sage
    Blair
    Hazel

    edit: meant to say do they sound too nick names ish not nmish

    All the names you listed work as first names and don't have a nickname vibe to me.

    I love Sage and Zara, but not so much the rest. I also like Aria, Lyra and Wren.
