I voted for (in order of my favourite) [name]Susannah[/name], [name]Rosemary[/name] and [name]Harriet[/name], but I also like (again in order) [name]Magdalena[/name], [name]Eleanor[/name], [name]Jemima[/name] and (to a lesser extent) [name]Philippa[/name]. I’m not that keen on [name]Dorothy[/name], [name]Virginia[/name] or [name]Wilhelmina[/name] though. They all seem to musty and heavy for a young girl to carry…that’s just my opinion though!

As far as nn’s go here are some suggestions for my favourite names, with my fav nn’s in bold:

[name]Susannah[/name] - [name]Susie[/name], [name]Suki[/name], [name]Sanna[/name], [name]Zanna[/name], [name]Sue[/name].
[name]Rosemary[/name] - [name]Romy[/name], [name]Rose[/name], [name]Mary[/name], [name]Rosa[/name].
[name]Harriet[/name] - [name]Hattie[/name], [name]Hatty[/name], [name]Hettie[/name] (though more appropriate for [name]Henrietta[/name] I think it’d still work for [name]Harriet[/name]!), [name]Etta[/name].
[name]Magdalena[/name] - [name]Magda[/name], [name]Maggie[/name], [name]Lena[/name], [name]Meg[/name].
[name]Eleanor[/name] - [name]Elle[/name], [name]Ella[/name], [name]Ellie[/name], [name]Nora[/name].
[name]Jemima[/name] - [name]Jem[/name], [name]Mima[/name], [name]Mimi[/name].
[name]Philippa[/name] - [name]Pippa[/name], Philli, [name]Pip[/name].

Best of luck and hope that helps some! :slight_smile:

You’ve got a great list, but it’s really hard for me to choose. I feel like the full names I like with [name]Abraham[/name] and the nicknames I like best with [name]Bram[/name] aren’t really the same. I like [name]Magdalena[/name], [name]Susannah[/name], and [name]Jemima[/name] the best with [name]Abraham[/name], but with [name]Bram[/name] [name]Pippa[/name], [name]Dottie[/name], or [name]Romy[/name] would be adorable.

[name]Favorite[/name] nicknames for the list:
[name]Dorothy[/name] - [name]Dottie[/name], [name]Dolly[/name], [name]Dot[/name]
[name]Eleanor[/name] - [name]Ellie[/name], [name]Nora[/name]
[name]Harriet[/name] - [name]Hattie[/name]
[name]Jemima[/name] - [name]Mimi[/name]
[name]Magdalena[/name] - [name]Maggie[/name]
[name]Philippa[/name] - [name]Pippa[/name]
[name]Rosemary[/name] - [name]Romy[/name]
[name]Susannah[/name] - [name]Annie[/name], [name]Sukey[/name]
[name]Virginia[/name] - [name]Ginny[/name]
[name]Wilhelmina[/name] - [name]Willa[/name], [name]Minnie[/name]

I love:
[name]Abraham[/name] and [name]Jemima[/name]/[name]Bram[/name] and [name]Mimi[/name]

or

[name]Abraham[/name] and [name]Dorothy[/name]/[name]Bram[/name] and [name]Dottie[/name]

[name]Just[/name] a thought if you live in the US: [name]Abraham[/name] [name]Lincoln[/name] is closely associated with the abolotion of slavery; [name]Jemima[/name] is associated with the black woman of Aunt [name]Jemima[/name] syrup.

I voted for [name]Philippa[/name], [name]Rosemary[/name], and [name]Wilhelmina[/name]. Good luck!

That is a nice set of names. The following are my favorites:

#1: [name]Susannah[/name] - ([name]Susannah[/name] is at the VERY top of my list of names that I would use for a second daughter.) [name]Anna[/name], [name]Annie[/name], [name]Zanna[/name]
#2: [name]Magdalena[/name] - ([name]Love[/name] it!) [name]Lena[/name], [name]Maggie[/name], [name]Maddie[/name]
#3: [name]Philippa[/name] - (Enchanting name) [name]Philly[/name]

I think the the Biblical names are the best with [name]Abraham[/name] ([name]Bram[/name]). My preferences in order are:
(1) [name]Susannah[/name]
(2) [name]Jemima[/name]
(3) [name]Magdalena[/name]

[name]Jemima[/name]! I love the nn of [name]Jemma[/name] and it goes so well with [name]Bram[/name], it kind of looks the same.
