    Lavender

    Hello, Nameberry! After sitting on my extended list for quite some time I've started looking for a place for Lavender again. I have a few questions, but feel free to just answer one if you'd like:

    What's your opinion of Lavender as a middle name? How about as a first name?

    What suggestions do you have for nicknames? (I'm all for creative nicknames, by the way. Get as out there as you want in terms of connection to the original name.)

    Thanks!

    Maybe: Eva Firefly and Frances Lavender

    As a middle, Lavender is sweet and fresh- I like it. As a first, it's bold but definitely usable

    Lavender nn...

    I really like the nickname suggestions of Avie, Andie, and Vera from previous posters! Lavender isn't a name I'd use in the first spot, but paired with a classic first I think it could be a wonderful middle.
