    wow, aha guess I'll be Alannah then! :-) thank you for your suggestions What other nicknames could there be for Alannah (Al-on-nah) besides Allie?
    I've been staring at the hotel ceiling,
    Drinking everything I've found this evening,
    Trying to hold on to the sweetest feeling,
    So I'll never let you go, don't you leave me lonely.

    I agree with this. Haley Alannah seems like a mouthful. And the names sort of run together when I say them.

    As for nicknames, I like Allie.
    Trying in earnest for our first this winter

(Though lovely, it is a bit of a mouthful.) And then you'd be right back where you were before. Plus, I think it would get old fast having to constantly tell people, "No, it's not Haley, it's Haley ALANNAH." You don't want to be that girl. And by using Alannah, you get the best of both worlds: lyrical, super feminine name with spunky, sporty, easy-to-say nickname. And the icing on the cake is that it IS your legal name! (Even if it's not in the first name spot.) You're changing it at the perfect time, too. Good luck on your new adventure!
    I couldn't agree with this more. Seriously, well said.
    27 year old soon to be Momberry, looking for the perfect fit for my little one.
