Amalia

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] berries!

I’ve been thinking about [name_f]Amalia[/name_f] a lot today… I like her a lot and like that it’s a variant of a family name for me. [name_f]My[/name_f] main hesitation is the lack of appealing (for me) nicknames… I am not a fan of [name_f]Molly[/name_f] at all and [name_f]Amy[/name_f] doesn’t really do anything for me either. [name_f]Lia[/name_f] is the best of the bunch but feels a bit lackluster. I love [name_f]Lily[/name_f] and [name_f]Lila[/name_f] but feel like they’re a bit of a stretch for [name_f]Amalia[/name_f]. If you had to nickname [name_f]Amalia[/name_f], what would you use? (Not [name_f]Amy[/name_f] or [name_f]Molly[/name_f] haha)

Also… what middles would you give her? I’ve long toyed with [name_f]Amalia[/name_f] [name_f]Merel[/name_f] and I like her, but she does seem to fall a bit short. I seem to like something on the shorter side with her?

Thanks berries!

Are you a nickname person? I know an [name_f]Amalia[/name_f] and she only ever gets called her full name! But some other ones could be [name_f]Ally[/name_f], [name_f]Mia[/name_f], [name_f]Mali[/name_f], [name_f]Malia[/name_f], [name_f]Lili[/name_f] or [name_m]Ames[/name_m].

[name_f]Amalia[/name_f] is lovely!

If I couldn’t use any of the nicknames you mentioned, I’d probably go with [name_f]Mimi[/name_f], [name_f]Amal[/name_f], or [name_m]Ali[/name_m] (maybe spelled [name_f]Ollie[/name_f] since that’s how I’d pronounce it?). You could possibly get away with [name_f]Maisie[/name_f] too?

[name_f]Amalia[/name_f] [name_f]Merel[/name_f] is very pretty!

[name_f]Amalia[/name_f] is very pretty and I don’t think it needs a nickname. I don’t know any Amalias, but I know a few Amelias, and most go by the full name (the one who doesn’t is a [name_f]Millie[/name_f], which could be a nn for [name_f]Amalia[/name_f] too).

For a middle name, this is what came to mind for me:

[name_f]Amalia[/name_f] [name_f]Raine[/name_f]
[name_f]Amalia[/name_f] [name_f]Patience[/name_f]
[name_f]Amalia[/name_f] [name_f]Rachel[/name_f]
[name_f]Amalia[/name_f] [name_f]Haven[/name_f]
[name_f]Amalia[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f]
[name_f]Amalia[/name_f] [name_f]Sable[/name_f]
[name_f]Amalia[/name_f] [name_f]Daisy[/name_f]

… for some reason I think a name with a long “a” works well with [name_f]Amalia[/name_f]!

I like [name_f]Amalia[/name_f], I’ve always been a fan of [name_f]Amabel[/name_f] but this feels fresher.

NN wise I’d use; [name_f]Lila[/name_f], [name_f]Maya[/name_f] or [name_f]Mallie[/name_f].

We live in Central Europe and Amalia/Amalie is fairly popular. The ones we know all go by Amalka. I know that’s very language/culture specific, but it’s cute!

Yes, very much so. [name_f]Mali[/name_f] sounds like [name_f]Molly[/name_f] to my ears? Would you say it different? [name_f]Lili[/name_f] is the most appealing but I would probably just want to default to [name_f]Lily[/name_f]. Lee-Lee doesn’t do much for me. Thank you for your thoughts!

[name_m]Eh[/name_m] Ollie-Ali/Molly/Mali are all probably out anyway because my nephew has the nn [name_f]Ollie[/name_f]. And ugh, not a [name_f]Maisie[/name_f] or [name_f]Mimi[/name_f] fan, unfortunately. But if [name_f]Maisie[/name_f] can work, surely [name_f]Lily[/name_f] or [name_f]Lila[/name_f] could too?

I’m very picky on [name_f]Amalia[/name_f] combos, but I do like [name_f]Amalia[/name_f] [name_f]Vale[/name_f]! I seem to love short and sweet androgynous names (maybe that feel more surnamey? I also like [name_f]Amalia[/name_f] Ives) with [name_f]Amalia[/name_f] for some reason.

Interesting, all the Amelia’s I know go by either [name_f]Amy[/name_f], [name_f]Mia[/name_f], or [name_f]Millie[/name_f]. I don’t think I know one that goes by the full [name_f]Amelia[/name_f]! Unfortunately [name_f]Millie[/name_f] carries a lot of emotional baggage and loss for me, I wouldn’t use her, but she is sweet for someone else’s kid.

[name_f]Daisy[/name_f] and [name_f]Grace[/name_f] both honor family, so both could be possibilities!

[name_f]Maya[/name_f]! I don’t hate the idea of [name_f]Maya[/name_f]. Although I do like [name_f]Lily[/name_f] more. LOVE the ideas of [name_f]Amalia[/name_f] [name_f]Posy[/name_f] and [name_f]Amalia[/name_f] [name_f]Swan[/name_f], thank you! Maybe [name_f]Amalia[/name_f] [name_f]Lark[/name_f] or [name_f]Amalia[/name_f] [name_f]Romy[/name_f] or [name_f]Amalia[/name_f] [name_f]Hero[/name_f], too.

@luneth - [name_f]Amalia[/name_f] [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] feels so European [name_m]Royal[/name_m]! I like it but it’s not the vibe I think I’m going for, unfortunately. [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] is a maybe though!

Thanks girl! Reassuring that at least a few people think [name_f]Lily[/name_f] could work. [name_f]Liliana[/name_f] is on my short list though so it just feels a little redundant. [name_f]Amalia[/name_f] [name_f]Gwen[/name_f] is nice!
