    Cool Miriam Jean

    Miriam Jean. Is it too old? Nn will be Miri. We don't like The nickname Mimi!

    Older brother is Ian Jameson.


    Thoughts on using just plain Miri as a " nicknames first" type of thing?

    I really like Miriam myself. Jean I don't care for. I like Jane or June better. But it still works.

    I've never been a huge fan of the name Jean either, But it was my beloved grandmothers name who passed away when I was little. I've always thought I would use her name in my future daughters name ever since she passed on. I guess its my way of keeping her with me because I don't have much else of her in my life.

    Miriam nn Miri is lovely. It's sweet and vintage with a spunky nickname - I love it. And Jean in the middle isn't my favorite but it's better than Grace, Rose, Kate, etc. Miriam Jean could also go my MJ - one of my guilty pleasure nicknames for a lil girl. My personal favorite combo is Matilda Jane or Mira Juliet - I love them both!

    Miriam Jean is gorgeous, I don't think it sounds too old at all! Miri would be my preferred nickname as well; Mimi is too Mariah Carey for me.
