    Adorable nicknames?

    Hi guys, this is my first thread (yay!) so here goes!

    What do you think are some adorable nicknames for darling little girls? Here are some of mine that I love:

    Mary- Midge
    Edith- Edie
    Josephine- Posie/Posy/Posey

    So can you think of any others that I could possibly add to my list?

    Also, do you think Tib could work as a nickname for Sybil or Sybilla? and could you help me find a nickname for Lavinia please....the name has really grown on me!

    One of my pet peeves is nick names. I am a nickname and I hate it. I guess I don't understand why anyone would pick a beautiful name and then not use it. If I loved the nickname instead of the original, then I would use that. For example, I would never name a child Eleanor and then call her Nora. If I wanted to use Nora, then I would name her Nora. Some of my favorite nickname names are:
