    Names that could be shortened to Sally

    Hi all,

    One of my friends is expecting a baby girl and they are thinking of naming her after the baby's soon-to-be grandma, Sally.

    Personally I think it's a cute name on a toddler but don't think it ages well. I suggested they find a long name that Sally could be a NN for, that way she has some choice over it as she grows up. My friend liked this idea but neither of us could think of a name that would work.

    Can you think of any names that could be shortened to Sally?
    What are your thoughts on the name?
    Do you like names like Sally-Anne or are they a bit dated?

    Thanks!

    Maybe Rosalia, Selena, or Saloma nn Sally?

    Saloma is lovely, thanks for the suggestion.

    My friend is actually called Selena, so probably not that one! However it hadn't dawned on me that having Sally and Selena in the same family might be confusing, I'll mention that to her.

    I [I]love Sally! I think using it as a nickname is a great idea, but I also think it's perfectly fine on it's own. It reminds me of names like Molly, Lucy, and Sadie.

    Sarah is the most obvious formal name, but I think that Rosalind would also work. Other ideas:

    Josalyn
    Rosalie
    Thessaly
    Cecily
