I also love this for personal reasons! While maybe a stretch, this could translate as "little Nina". Which would be a perfect name tribute to my beloved deceased grandmother, whose name was Frances, but was known by her grandkids only as "Nina" (an invention of mine as a tot). We used her proper name as our daughter's middle name, but she was stillborn. So I'd love to use some other form if we ever have another to carry on "Nina's" legacy.
