I'll admit to these ones now that I'm not quite alone on the subject
Bertha (Only slightly, this is one I'd never use)
Edna (another that I'd never use, but the meaning is nice)
Fannie (if it wasn't tied to the female body parts...)

Dismissing something as "too Nameberry" blows my mind. I've invested time in reading this site because so many people share my taste in names. While I'd like to explore and expand my choices, it doesn't do me any good to drop in on a site that focuses exclusively on another naming style.
I think my especially guilty pleasures are the over the top feminine nicknames-- oh yes, Bibi/Bebe and Bunny. Cece and Gigi, too. Lula, Lola (Delores!) Dolly, Bessie/Betsy/Betty/Bette. Plus Some really flowery longer names like Arabella and Christabel.
I like some much fustier names like Helen/Helena and Agnes as well but I think I somehow feel more confident admitting to these preferences.
I expect that when it comes to naming a daughter I will choose something familiar but unexpected that presents an option for a really girly nickname.
