Bunny would be an adorable nickname or even as a middle name. Think about how a grown woman would feel if she had to put "Bunny" as her first name on a job application, or how coworkers would feel having to use that name. It's just not professional and it sounds infantilizing.

I think that's fine, but at least she has a real name. Bunny is definitely more of a nickname.

Not a real name, would work as a nickname

I love this as a nickname for Elizabeth, or even Bethany if you want something besides Beth as a nickname or a nickname for Madeline instead of Maddie.

Ok this is probably cute as a nickname but for a real name????
Sounds a bit stripper-ish to me...
