    Nicknames That Can Standalone?

    As most people know, I love nicknames as standalone choices, but I'm in need of some fresh ideas.

    On my list right now, I have:

    Lola
    Millie
    Maisie
    Ellie
    Rosie
    Gracie
    Elsie
    Tilly
    Lexie
    Lottie
    Annie
    Libby
    Connie
    Betsy
    Sadie
    Edie
    Maggie
    Effie
    Lulu

    I don't count a lot of flower names (Poppy, Daisy, Lily, etc) as nicknames, or names that have become established on their own (Molly, Nancy, Polly, etc).

    What nicknames do you think can standalone? Are there any favourites you have?

    @prettygirl - ooh, Callie, Emmy, Posy, and Katie are lovely
