    Question Nickname for Evelyn?

    Could you use Elle as a nickname for Evelyn? Does that work?

    I think it could work. I think most would assume it was Evelyn nn Evie, or Elle was a nn for a name like Eloise, Elizabeth, Eliana, Eleanor, etc., but I do think it's do-able.

    I have the same thoughts about it. The problem is, I don't care for the nickname Evie, but I prefer the name Evelyn over the longer "El" names. Plus, I have a co-worker who is naming her baby Eleanor a month before my baby is born. I really wish that wasn't happening, so at least I could consider it as an option! The whole issue is that for years, I was planning on naming my baby girl Elle, but I told it to a friend who then stole it! The friend also has the same last name as me! (I posted about it in a previous thread a few weeks back). I would love to still call my baby Elle, so I felt like giving her a longer name and having Elle for a nickname would be the perfect solution. However, I'm having trouble finding a name I like that can be shortened to Elle!
