[name_f]Esmé[/name_f] is one of my favourite girls names and the one that’s probably been on my list the longest.
I haven’t asked SO what he thinks of it, so I’m not sure if we’ll ever actually use it, but I have a bit of a dilemma about whether we could use it.
[name_f]My[/name_f] concern is that my niece’s name is [name_f]Isabelle[/name_f], but she almost exclusively gets called [name_u]Izzy[/name_u] by our family. I don’t think [name_f]Esmé[/name_f] needs a nickname, but we’re nickname people and I would be surprised if it didn’t occasionally get shortened around home to Ez, or worse, Ezzy.
I think we could restrain ourselves from Ezzy (I don’t really like it anyway) and just stick with Ez as a bit of a pet name but…
[name_f]Do[/name_f] you think [name_f]Esmé[/name_f] is too close to [name_u]Izzy[/name_u]?
What about Ez and [name_u]Izzy[/name_u]?
[name_m]Can[/name_m] you think of any other nicknames for [name_f]Esmé[/name_f]?
(We don’t live in the same city as my brother and his family, so we might see them every six months on average.)
