Thread: Amaryllis nickname...?
July 2nd, 2013 11:19 PM #1
Okay, so it is a matter of the distant future to name any children, but I adore the name Amaryllis. The meaning, flower association, and beautiful sound are flawless! I'm a sucker for nicknames though. Don't get me wrong, I love the name as a whole, but I think a beloved nickname is always handy. I originally had Amari or Mari as designated nickname, but have lately been searching for other options. Not a fan of Amy or Rylli, (sounds too much like really), or Mary. I like Liss and Lissy, but that also happens to be my occasional nickname. So I have two questions:
1. My latest idea is to use combo Amaryllis Kerensa and use the nickname Amzie. (Am from Amaryllis, the z sound from Kerensa). What do you think of this idea? Would Amzie work for just Amaryllis? I also thought if Amzie was too childlike in sound, she could go by Amari or Mari as a teen.
2. I need your creativity, berries! Any other great nicknames for Amaryllis? Can be a stretch, though not too far, obviously.
Thanks in advance!

Thanks! Unfortunately my favorite is Lissy, but that's also my occasional nickname, haha.

I have an Amaryllis in my classroom, but her parents always call her Lily, never by her full name. This may or may not be a stretch for you, but it has always made sense for her. I'm not a huge fan of Amzie, but I can see how it would be cute for a little kid. And if you like it, go for it. Good luck!Girls: Cordelia, Phoebe, Rose
