    brainstorming: sisters names & nickname ideas

    Lately I have been obsessing over names that have been 'hiding in plain sight; They are soft, strong, classic yet uncommon and maybe have a touch of storybook/whimsical feeling. I love the idea of four sisters called:

    Beatrix, Theodora, Winifred, & Josephine.

    Beatrix (or Beatrice) offers so many great nicknames (Bea/Bee,Bizzy/Birdie/Trix/Trixie etc.). If I had a Beatrix I would only call her Bee, Bizzy, "Bizzy Bee", or Trix/Trixie for short not as nicknames.

    Can you think of cute/spunky nicknames or short names for the other sisters? (Short names = Not necessarily a name they'd be called by everyone but maybe "pet names" like cutesy names only family & close friends call them for short)?

    Any creative suggestions? (Especially for Josephine). Kind of a stretch but I like the idea of Sophie or Sofie as a short name "family nickname" for Josephine but wouldn't want it to overtake the full name. Unless I had a real nickname I loved (not just a cutesy short name) then I'd want them to go by their full name in general.

    Also what would you name each girl's hypothetical sister or twin?

    Beatrix and ?
    Theodora and ?
    Winifred and ?
    Josephine and ?

    This is sort of for fun but also just a way to determine how different people interpret these names. I'm having a daughter in December so it's also for research/ideas too. Dang I just realized how much I wrote.. sorry!!
