    Delaney

    Can anyone recommend a cute nickname for Delaney?

    Can you also think of a good middle name for it! Irishy last name ending in y. So far husband likes Hope and my top choice is Maeve...

    Thank you!!!

    Well the obvious ones are Della and Laney. Both are cute and most appealing to me personally. Lady would also work I think, and Ella (but that would put her in a group with a hoard of other Ellas). Laina / Lana or Lili maybe.

    I think both of your middle names are great, only slightly preferring Hope.

    Oh, I love Maeve.

    As aym said, Della and Laney are cute. Ella is plausible. Delia could also work. Elan/Ellen is another.

    Oooh I love Delaney Maeve!

    Other nicknames not already mentioned might be Didi/DeeDee, Dee, Lee, Dani/Danny. This is a little less intuitive, but a friend calls her daughter Delaney by the nickname Lou (evolved from originally calling her Lanie-Lou).
