    Roxy without Roxanne?

    Well hello!

    Do you super smart namers know of a way to get to the nickname Roxy without using the name Roxanne?

    While I don't mind Roxanne, she seems slightly dated and would love a more modern alternative in order to use the fun and bold Roxy/Roxie!

    Would Romilly nn Roxy work? What about Beatrix?

    I don't really think Beatrix or Romilly really work to get to Roxy. It just doesn't really make any sense to me, and I think it would confuse people. I really like Roxana (it seems a lot less dated than Roxanne to me) and Rosanna or Oxana might work, but Roxanne/Roxana is the most logical.

    I want to add that I do not find Roxanne dated, but I much prefer the Roxane spelling because that is the most legit to me. I also adore Roxana. There is the Eastern European form of Roksana, and as I have already suggested, there is the Russian female name of Roxelana. I don't think nns are always suppose to make sense, but Roxy is a bit of a stretch from Romilly and Beatrix.
