I really like this name, specially with the nn [name_u]Rory[/name_u] but I’m slightly worried about the As- beginning for obvious reasons. What do you think? Is it usable or too weird?

What other names can get the nn [name_u]Rory[/name_u]? I don’t like [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] because with my accent it sounds weird.

I really like [name_f]Astoria[/name_f]!! [name_f]My[/name_f] fave nn for it is [name_u]Story[/name_u]. I think the as- part is fine. It’s very similar to one of my favorites [name_f]Astara[/name_f].


Personally I wouldn’t be able to shake the associations with Queens, NY. If you are looking for [name_u]Rory[/name_u] you could just go with it on its own! Other options are [name_f]Lorelei[/name_f] or [name_f]Majorie[/name_f].

Rory is a lovely nickname for [name_f]Astoria[/name_f]!

Other possible names for [name_u]Rory[/name_u]:

[name_u]Rowan[/name_u] / [name_f]Rowena[/name_f]

I think any variation of [name_f]Rose[/name_f] also works!

Astoria is lovely! I don’t think the As start is a big deal; I’ve known several Astrids and it’s never been an issue.

Some other ‘[name_u]Rory[/name_u]’ names…

I wouldn’t worry about the beginning b/c it’s not pronounced ass, but uh-stor-eah.

I think of the Waldorf so I’d look for another way to [name_u]Rory[/name_u].

Almost any R name could get you there. [name_f]Rosamund[/name_f], [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f], [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f], [name_f]Rosellen[/name_f], [name_u]Romy[/name_u], [name_f]Romola[/name_f], [name_u]Romilly[/name_u], [name_u]Roma[/name_u], I think.
