Thread: What nicknames would you use...
April 26th, 2014 08:49 PM #21
I'm big on nicknames! I have a full name and a nn. Plus my full name lends itself to a lot of nickname options, so some close friends/family have given me their own special nicknames. I just love how many options it gives me. Many nicknames fit my style (which I would describe as quirky vintage), but I want to give my child the same type of options. I use my full name professionally for example.
From your list the nicknames I would use...
Pandora nn Panda or Ora/Aura - Dory (This is on my list for Isadora/Dorothea/Dorian, but sadly I think Finding Nemo/Finding Dory has probably ruined that. Andy for a girl is sort of a GP. Shhh, don't tell.
Evanthe nn Evie (Ee-vee) - Would pronounce Eh-vee
Beatrix nn Trixie - Same
Phaedra nn Phae - Same
Arabella nn Ari (never Bella, maybe Belle) - Same
Perenna nn Enna - Renny (This is on my list for Renata)
Caspian nn Cip (Pn. Kip) or Caspi (I don't like any other options) - I would use Cass. Kip is on my list for Kipling.
Phoenix nn Phin - Not sure, mabye Nix
Ptolemy nn Lemy - Tolly
Lorenzo nn Enzo - Same. This is on my list. I also have Renny and Renly as nn options.
Nikolai nn Niko - Same
Evander nn Ev (pn. like beverage) - Van
Other names you mentioned that are on my list
Phaedra (No nn) - I like Faye, but not the spelling change required and don't like the way Phae looks.
Matilda, nn Tildy/Tilly
Cleo - I go back and forth between whether I this would stand alone or I would use it as a nn for Clementine.
Magdalena, nn Maggie
Genevieve, nn Neva
Guinevere, nn Winnie - But would probably use Winola to get to Winnie
Gideon - No Nickname!
Indy (Indira) - for a girl, obviously
August, nn Gus
Leo (Leander) - Lee o
Just a few of my other favorites
I have a lot more! Oh and to @solace, I like Milly as a nn for Camilla!Top 20Silas/Cyrus~Gideon~Jasper~Mack(Cormac)~Callum

Camilla for a very, very long time until my cousin had a daughter and named her Camilla and that was five years ago. But I wouldn't use Millie for Camilla. I like Camilla nn Mila or Mika or Mimi/Maime or Cami or Calla/Cali. I wouldn't pick necessary as like I said, I would want the nn to come naturally and not forced.punctuality is a virtue of the lonely.
