    Minna?

    What are everyones opinions on Minna? I know of two teenaged Minna's and I'm starting to like it. I've always like Wilhelmina and Mina but I wouldn't use Minna as a nickname for Wilhelmina because I say them differently I say Minna as Minn-ah and Wilhelmina as wil-hem-ee-na. Is Minna and acceptable full name and does it work?

    It reminds me of 'minute'. I like Min, and Mina, but Minna isn't really my thing. I think it would be pronounced like Mina a lot as well.

    I know a little girl named Minna (2) and she wears it very well. Sometimes her mum calls her Minnie

    I'm not particularly fond of it, but it's not a bad name at all.

    Praying for Mae Evelyn or Reid Elijah
    Mae Evelyn / Ella Hadley / Ada Jane / Lena Camille / Liv Eleanor / Iris Abigail / Gwen Eliza

    Reid Elijah / Benjamin Abel / Owen Archer / Liam Harvey / Jonah Matthew / Ronan Isaac / Jack Ezra

    Eliza Winter / Lila Eve / Liora Jane / Nora Adeline / Cleo Madeleine / Gwen Eliza / Millie Adelaide

    I think it would be pronounced as Mee-nuh quite a bit too.

    As far as Minna goes, I automatically think Minnie...which goes into cutesy nickname territory. Minna is not my style. I would prefer it as a nickname for something longer, but if there aren't any longer variations you like or can justify and you love Minna I say go for it. These might be a stretch:

    Araminta / Aminta
    Clementina/Clementine
    Jessamine / Jessamyn

    I don't really like any of those suggestions Wilhelmina isn't my usual style. Araminta reminds me of minties and the my little pony Minty, I like Clementine but Minna is too much of a stretch and I hate all Jess names they seem dated and too 90's
