Ooh, nice names. Nicknames will sort themselves, whatever everyone's intentions - which is how Agnes ends up so frequently responding to bumpkin...Thrilled to be mother to @gnes Ei1ish Madeline and Fe1icity Bridget Be@trice
If we'd had boys the list was: Godfrey, Seamus, Alexander, Michael, Felix, Peter, Ignatius & Sebastian.

I think it's beautiful. I think the nickname issue will work out over some time. My kids usually had a handful of nicknames when they were babies but now my older daughters only have one or two (or none).

I think the combination is perfect. The fact that there are so many nickname options just makes it all the more perfect! i think Gigi or Jenny are your best bests! For the most part, you will end up calling her the nn you like best. That's usually the one that sticks! I have about 5 nn's but only one is used exclusively, and I love it!XOXO Whillemina

Maybe you can all get together and vote? I would say you and your husband should get the final say, but if you come up with every nn for Ginny, and see which one wins when you vote. I wouldn't involve more distant family, though--just the people who live in your house. Everyone else will come around in time. If they try and call her another nn, you could say something along the lines of "Her name is Genevieve, not [Gracie]" or "We call her Evie". There are tons of Genevieve nns, though--I'm sure you could all agree on something! Genny, Genna, Gen, Evie, Neve/Niamh, Eve, Eva, Geneva, Vieve, Ginny, Gigi, etc. Ginny, Evie, and Niamh are my personal favorites, but there are many lovely ones to pick from. Good luck!
