    ______ nickname Billie?

    I adore Sibylla nn Billie, but I'm wondering if there are any alternatives that use Billie as a nickname? Except any other variation of Sibyl, and not Wilhelmina.

    Somebody a while ago suggested that Amelia nn Billie (with the logic that Amelia=Millie=Billie just like Margaret=Meggy=Peggy if you see what I mean). I rarely like overstretched or non-traditional nicknames but could this work?

    Thank you! I'd love some suggestions x

    (I love Billie on it's own but in all honesty I could never use 'just Billie'. It's gorgeous and super adorable and such a perfect name with a great history, but my style is way more elaborate)

    Rosemary - Lettice - Maude - Cordelia - Billie - Fenella - Eilidh


    Names for dreamy, sublime little darlings. The smell of springtime air, freckled knees, damp hair. Soft evening light and fiery hearts.

    I agree that Billie could be a nn for Amelia. I've also heard Billie as a nn for Elizabeth/Elisabeth, and I supposed many names with a B in it could have Billie as a nn I think Billie is such an adorable nickname.

    They're not my favorite names in the world, but I think Abilene/Abilena or Jubilee could work.

    Oh, I've been thinking about ways to get Billie just recently! I adore Sybil, but for some reason I can't imagine ever using it. I did some research and found a few options:

    Abilene
    Nabila
    Jubilee

    ...but I'd love to see what others come up with.

    I think Billie could work as a nickname for Amelia, but you'd probably have to explain how you got it at times.
