    Re: Sally

    I think by arbitrary selection, I'm able to see some nicknames as formal names, and others not. Sally was my first "favorite name" for whatever reason. I am linking it in time to my doll Betsy (I think Betsy Wetsie because I never would have just out of the blue come up with Betsy at the time). It was a long time until I was aware Sally was a nickname for Sarah, and I think went in fashion and out because Sarah is a solid classic, some eras just don't tolerate people going around without a zippy nickname to cover up your name or spice it up a bit and make it sound like you are not your blessed grandmother. I had similar feelings for Betsy - it just seems like an odd thing to call someone for no good reason. Elizabeth is a good reason.

    I also hear "Sally" as a man's name sometime, short for Salvatore usually, so I don't feel like it's a full name. I really like how it sounds, and boys aren't named Salvatore too often anymore, but it still sounds informal either way.

    Sally is not my style. Though it is rather refreshing to see on a baby.
