    Re: What do you think of....

    Hi, Kate! I have to admit that I'm personally not an Aggie fan because it sadly makes me think of agony and saggy. Agatha itself has been growing on me, though. I guess it's just the hard g sound that feels a bit harsh to me, especially with the soft and perky Dottie.

    I think of Dottie as being cheerful and happy, and Aggie as being more serious and somber.

    I have to say that I'm actually excited that you're still searching for names, because I love your style! :-)

    What first names are you thinking of now?

    Just for fun, some names I see with Dorothy that have probably been suggested before:

    Alice
    Adelia
    Beatrice (I think you dislike this one)
    Cora/Cordelia
    Celia
    Evangeline
    Eleanora
    Estelle
    Evelyn
    Edith
    Frances
    Florence
    Helen(a) (nn Nell)
    Hazel
    Harriet
    Henrietta
    Ivy
    Isadora
    Iris
    Josephine
    Louisa
    Lillian
    Margaret
    Maude
    Mabel
    Miriam
    Olive
    Penelope (nn Nell or Poppy)
    Rose
    Pearl
    Ruby
    Ruth/Ruthie
    Susannah
    Tess
    Tabitha (nn Tibbie...Susan suggested this the other night somewhere, and I thought it was darling)
    Vivien/Vivienne
    Willa

    I hope you're doing well, and I just know you'll find perfect names! :-)

    Take care!

    I don't love Aggie (just to be honest). I do love Maggie - could it be short for Madeline? Or Addie for Adeline?

    For Aggie, I think of marbles and haggis.

    Re: What do you think of....

    With Dorothy nn Dot, I love:
    Adelaide nn Addie
    Anastasia nn Tansy
    Azalea nn Lea
    Bernadette nn Birdie - this would be so cute with Dot
    Calandra nn Callie
    Carlotta nn Lottie
    Cecily nn Cessie
    Clotilda nn Coco, Tilda, or Tillie - this would be different!
    Drusilla nn Dru
    Elizabeth nn Libby
    Fiona nn Fina or Fifi
    Frances or Francesca nn Francie
    Frida
    Henrietta nn Hattie
    Isadora nn Izzy
    Jacaranda nn Jackie
    Jacqueline nn Jackie
    Josephine nn Josie or Fina or Posy
    Katherine nn Kitty - so cute with Dot
    Louisa nn Lulu
    Lucinda nn Lucy - but Lucy is probably too popular for you.
    Margaret nn Maisie - I love Maisie
    Matilda nn Mattie or Tillie or Tilda
    Millicent nn Milly
    Minerva nn Minnie
    Mirabel or Mirabella nn Mira or Miri
    Miranda nn Miri
    Miriam nn Miri
    Penelope nn Nell
    Persia - I know of a lady named Percia or Persha, has anyone heard of it? I can't find it on Nameberry. I think it's the feminine form of Perseus.
    Romilly nn Romy or Milly
    Rosemary nn Romy
    Sylvie
    Tabitha nn Tibbie
    Theda
    Thisbe
    Vivian nn Vivi
    Wilhelmina nn Willa or Billie - Billie would be so cute with Dot!
    Winifred nn Freddie or Winnie

    Of my list, I would pick Margaret nn Maisie, Jacqueline nn Jackie, Henrietta nn Hattie, Bernadette nn Birdie, Anastasia nn Tansy, Cecily nn Cessie, Josephine nn Josie, Elizabeth nn Libbie, or Tabitha nn Tibbie to go with Dot. Of this list my faves are: Henrietta nn Hattie, Bernadette nn Birdie, and Anastasia nn Tansy. That's considering what I think is your taste.
    If I were naming my own daughters and I had a last name that would work with any first name, I would name them Lucinda nn Lucy and Francesca nn Francie. I know Lucy is so popular, but I adore that name beyond reason. I also love Phoebe beyond all reason, but it doesn't have a nickname, and I think you love nicknames.
