    Cute Nicknames

    I'm due with a girl in a few weeks and have been looking at a lot of names. I figure most people will give her a nickname for any name over one syllable, so I thought I'd find cute "nicknames" and work backwards into longer names. But I need some help.

    What could Grey/Gray be a nickname for? I assume Gracyn/Grayson/Grace but those are really sickeningly popular.

    Pen for Penelope? Thoughts?

    Ellis for Elizabeth? Other options?

    I tend to like the girly names but the more unisex/neutral nicknames. Any other suggestions for some cute nickname options?

    What could Grey/Gray be a nickname for? Graciela (Graziella, Graciella) could go by Gray. I also think Gretchen or Greta could go by Grey if you wanted

    Pen for Penelope? Thoughts? I really like Nell for Penelope.

    Ellis for Elizabeth? Other options? Ellis is cute. As is Elle and Libby, in my opinion.

    Josephine: Josy or Joey
    Samantha: Sam or Sammy
    Francesca: Frankie
    Wilhelmina: Willa or Billy
    Danielle/ Daniella: Danny
    Jaqueline: Jack (I once knew a girl who went by Jack, and I thought it was so cute)
    Regina: Reggie

    I have always loved the nickname Dot, but I just can't like Dorothy... I've half-heartedly tried to find an alternate route to Dot, but I haven't had any luck yet ^^ (Nameberry once suggested Dorit, but she has limited appeal as well...)

    I also like it when I find new ways to old nicknames, like Hadrian/Adrian for Ian, Reuben for Ben, Icarus for Ike, Elvira for Ellie, Annora for Ann or Nora and Isolde for Izzie etc etc etc...

    As for the ones you mentioned, I have Gray/Grey as a name in it's own right ^^
    Pen for Penelope is nice, but I kinda love the old lady style of Nell or Poppy...
    Ellis for Elizabeth is new! But she is the most nicknamed name there is, so Ellis would be refreshing!
    Resident Norwegian, feel free to ask any questions regarding lovely Norse names and such! I'm more than happy to help ^^
