    This comes up every few weeks... and the honest answer is there's not really that many without massively stretching limits.

    India, Indigo and Indira are as far as I'd go to make it work. But honestly I'd just use Indy (although I'm not sure about elsewhere, in the UK ''Indie'' is a stylistic term - first to describe Independently produced music, but now it refers to fashion and other things too. It's like the equivalent of hipster, so feels kinda pretentious as a name to me).

    I've been loving Lucinda nn Indy, especially since my primary partner and I are huge Indianna Jones fans. Something about the combination of prim, lovely Lucinda with such a sparky, sassy, rough-and-tumble nickname seems absolutely perfect to me.

    ETA: I would strongly caution you to stay far, far away from India. It's been criticized as colonialist (and rightly so). I know a girl with this name who was so bothered by the implications that she started going by her middle name once she got to college.

    Ingrid! I don't think it's been mentioned yet, but Ingrid "Indy" is one of my all time favorite full name/nickname combinations.

    India, Indiana, Indigo, Indira, and the -ind- names like Rosalind are all good suggestions.
    Arabella, Thibault, Sophia, Alfred, Eleanor, Rémi, Charlotte, Achille, Olivia, Clement, Elizabeth, Frederick, Maud, Benedict, Adèle.

    We used Indira and love it, but I also like Indrina, Indra, India, Inara (It'd be a stretch but maybe with a D middle?), or just Indie.
