    Full names for nn Billie?

    I love Billie on a girl, but I would like it better as a nickname for something else, so she has options (as Billie can be seen as very manly and nicknamey)

    I've thought of Wilhemina, Willa and Sybil, none of which I really like that much.

    Would Elizabeth work as a full name for Billie? Are there any other names you guys can think of?
    Heidi Elowen - Josephine Honey - Gwendolen Ivy - Maisie Caroline - Celia Charlotte
    Asher Julian - Magnus Finley - Auden Christopher - Elias Jude

    Adelaide - Alexandra - Beatrix - Emmeline - Esme - Lila - Luna
    Jack - Bailey - Everett - Henry - Hugo - Rafferty - Shepherd

    I personally can't quite fit Billie as a nickname for Elizabeth. Sorry!

    Well the first one I think of is Belinda off Home and Away. How about Willow, Abigail, Beatrix or Belle?

    Belinda would be the most obvious extension of Billie or Wilhemina I guess.

    Other ideas: Beatrice, Sybil, Abilene, Billina
    Other names that might be a bit odd to change but could work: Willa, Willow

    My first thought was Elisabeth/Elizabeth (my full name) because as a kid I was [very occasionally] called Billie by my family

    I know a Billie-Tai and she wears it really well, and often goes by just Billie

    Other suggestions:
    Isabelle
    Bellamy
    Bellatrix
    Paloma
    Jubilee
    Campbell
    Rebel
    Sable/Fable/Mabel
    Willoughby
    Eliza | 22 | Mama of Siena Jane
    Just collecting


    Little Guys:
    Ansel James ~ Noah Alexander ~ Patrick Tully ~ Axel Rune ~ Stellan Arthur ~ Joel Emrys

    Reuben Evergreen ~ Thomas Nightingale ~ Vincent Larkspur
    Aspen Aurora ~ Aria Solstice

    I think Billie could definitely work as a nn for Elizabeth. There's so many different and not always obvious diminutives we already get from it that I don't think Billie would be too much of a stretch.

    What about . . .

    Cybele (though it sounds a lot like Sybil)
    Kimberley
    Abrielle
    Annabel
    Arabella
    Bluebel
    Gabrielle/Gabriella
    Basilia/Bassilly

    Like the suggestions of Abilene, Mabel, and Abigail.

    You could hyphenate it too, I guess, though that wouldn't strictly be a full name giving you the nickname, or perhaps use Billie Mae or something for the 'formal'/full name and Billie for short.
