    Amelia or Camilla "Millie"
    Harriet "Hallie"
    Caroline "Callie"
    Felicity "Lissie" - would this work or is Lissie more of a casual nickname than one you'd actually go by? Like "Rach" for Rachel?
    Eloise "Elsie"

    Any other suggestions?
    You've got some lovely names already - Lissie totally works as a nickname for Felicity I also like Flick - the names above also sound lovely with Beatrice! My favourite from the list is Caroline, I honesty think Caroline is such a gorgeous under-used classic. Caroline is a beautiful choice.

    Anastasia 'Annie'
    Elisabeth 'Lisa'
    Wilhelmina 'Mina'
    Scarlett 'Letty'
    Rosemary 'Rosa'
    Genevieve 'Evie'
    Gabriella 'Ella'
    Victoria 'Tori'
    Angelica 'Angie'
    Alexandra 'Alexa'
    Penelope 'Penny'
    Catherine 'Cathy'
    Clementine 'Clemency'
    Jennifer 'Jenny'
    Josephine 'Josie'
    Araminta 'Minty'

    I think Felicity nn Lissie works fine for a nickname to go by all the time, personally.
    Ideas -

    Katherine "Katie" or 'Kitty'
    Elizabeth "Libby," or "Lizzie'
    Margaret 'Meggie' or 'Maisie/Maisy' or 'Molly'
    Guinevere 'Gwinnie'
    Caroline 'Carrie' or 'Callie' (this one's my favorite)
    Rosalind 'Rosie' or 'Lindy'
    Eleanor 'Ellie' or 'Norrie' or 'Nell'
    Emmeline 'Emmy'
    Evangeline 'Evie'
    Charlotte 'Lottie'
    Alexandra 'Allie' or 'Andie'

    Sorry about repeats
