    Vintage Nicknames as First Names?

    While I was 'rediscovering' some names on my previous lists (my long list has got to be close to 200 names long now!), I noticed a few vintage nicknames, that, in history, have been used as standalone names, and ranked somewhere in the top 1000 at some point in time. I've starred the names that made the top 100 at one point.

    Marnie
    Betsy
    Lottie*
    Millie
    Nancy*
    Annie*
    Hattie*
    Sadie*
    Polly
    Nora*
    Edie


    I'm looking for suggestions for a few more vintage nicknames that have been used as first names/could be used as standalone names. Looking at all the names I've liked in the past 2 years, vintage/classic with a twist is DEFINITELY my style!

    I'm Claire, an Australian teenberry. I love names and kids, but I'm not going to become a mum for at least ten years. Until then, I'm just playing with possibilities.

    For girls, I love:
    Matilda - Iulia - Rosa - Annalise - Linnea - Eva

    For boys, I love: Anders - Reuben - James - Jude - Caspar - Thomas

    Guilty pleasures are: Blaise - Orion - Caspian --- Madelief - Isolde - Hero

    Also, you might like to consider Lettie, Susie, Pippa, and Dot. Good luck finding some more to add, I love what you have so far
