    I kind of like the idea of Persephone nn Percy. I can also see it as a nn for Perenelle, Perdita, Persis, Perseda, or Perla. But I don't like it by itself on a girl--it feels a bit too trendy.

    Oh no, not on a girl! I love Percy (and Percival/Perseus/Peregrine) on a boy, but it doesn't feel very feminine. As a nickname for Persephone I'd probably spell it Persey which somehow looks more feminine.

    Thanks for the feedback and suggestions! SO doesn't like Persephone. I don't know why, but he's staunchly against Persephone, and claims he always has been. Mercy creeps me out. It feels haunted, but thank you for the suggestion. Geeknamezyo - So many beautiful suggestions! He's thinking about Perdita. Thank you all again!

    I'm not a fan of Percy as a full name for a girl. I think you'd be sentencing her to a life of mistaken gender. I do like Persephone, nn Percy as pp suggested. Also, there's always Parisa which I'm sure you could nn Percy. Pari is a somewhat similar Persian option that is perhaps a bit exotic, but firmly in the female camp...
