    Does this nickname sound stupid?

    Claudia nn Clia. I mean I think we'd all agree it works (it does doesn't it? haha), it's kind of like Cora for Cordelia, but I don't know if it sounds dumb or not. I love the name Claudia and I love the name Clea, so I figured maybe this would be a cool way of getting both. It would be spelled Clia and not have the same meaning behind it etc, but I don't really mind I just like the way it sounds. But somehow it just strikes me as people would think I'm trying to be way too creative. What do you guys think?

    I think Clia could work as a nickname for Claudia, yet I always think in the Renault Clio car.

    Claudia "Clia"? Sure, it could work. As easily as Claudie can work. I just wouldn't do it, haha. I think Claudia's too lovely to shorten, and I think Dia would be more natural than Clia, but I don't think it's weird or anything. I think it'd be a fun casual nn.
