    Re: Desperate and nameless

    I love the alliteration of Clementine Cook! Cleo and Emme/Emmy are my favorite nicknames for Clementine. :-)

    I think Clementine and Archer are great together!

    Good luck!

    I don't have a million options for you but I thought


    might be cute. And it sounded good with Archer, both with the R in it. Hope you find something.

    I love Clementine Cook and how original to think of Emmy/Emma as a nn.

    The only nn I could think of was "lemon".

    Sounds great with Archer
    I totally sympathise! I am french but live in britain so finding a name is extremelly hard!
    A- names on my list you might like are:

    Amelie (with accent on first e) pron A-MAE-LEE
    Aimeline (EM-LIN)
    Aurelie (with accent on first e again) or-E-lee
    Adelaide though prob not for australia??

    Thanks for your suggestion Dejna! Will try it on with my hubby. Another French name I loved was Anais, but unfortunately I live in Australia and it would most certainly be pronounced incorrectly by 99% of the population. I must admit I do like names starting with A. Other names I have considered are:

    Any thoughts?

    It's true! I have met many a little Clemmie - it's sweet, but as nicknames go, it doesn't bowl me over. That said, personally I would be fine with other people calling my hypothetical daughter Clementine 'Clemmie' if I could still call her Clementine - which I could.

    You could use Emmie, but Emma is so popular ... Tina is a little dated, too.

    I've never been to Australia, but here in England we love nicknames, too, but I still know many people with longer names (an Adelaide, a Helena and an Eleanor, several Victorias, Elizabeths, and Catherines, for example) who only go by their full name. They introduce themselves as Adelaide, don't prompt any nicknaming, perhaps make a point of saying "Oh, I hate Addie. I'm so glad that no-one ever calls me Addie," and people don't nickname them, or when they do it is unrelated to their name (I used to teach a Catherine who was Bean amongst her friends, and always Catherine otherwise).

    Good luck!
