    Ashley nn Lela?

    Could this work? Lela said like LEE-lah.

    I have been on a long journey as far as renaming myself goes--I've ultimately decided against it, but I do love the idea of a nn that spices up Ashley. I like that Lela is everything that Ashley is not--sweet, feminine, vintage, striking. I've not decided if I plan on going by it or not, it's rather a new idea for me, but I'm just curious if people think it's too far-fetched.

    I figured if Charlotte could yield the nn Lola (as well as Viola, Chloe, Penelope, Lorelei, Willow, etc.), then why not Ashley nn Lela? Just curious what others think, though. I figure I'll try it out when I get the chance, but right now I'm just curious what people think of it/if people think Lela could actually work.

    Thanks, ladies!

    I think Lela is a nice nickname for Ashley, and it can be fun explaining to people how you got the nickname. I can see Lela being a nickname for Ashley better than Lola for Charlotte. I like the idea of finding another nickname for Ashley, rather than using Ash. One of my friend is named Ashley and she wanted to be called Leelee, but unfortunately it has not stuck.

    I say go for it.

    I like the name, and it works pretty well for Ashley! (or other lee etc names for that matter).
