Lately I have been questioning all the names I had on my previous list. One of the new contenders I’ve really gotten into is [name]Francesca[/name]. I really love it. But with a name as lengthy as this, there has to be some kind of nickname. I think I would most often use the full name, but, you know, a nn for a cutesy option.
One of the reasons this name is so appealing to me is that my grandfather’s name is [name]Francis[/name], and he goes by [name]Frank[/name], and therefore, I don’t want to call her [name]Frankie[/name] (although I do think this is cute for a girl, and maybe she would choose use it later in life).
I don’t like [name]Fran[/name] or [name]Francie[/name]. My husband suggested Chessa or Cessa (so, either would be pronounced [name]Chess[/name]-ah). I can’t tell if I like it or not.
Any thoughts? Or suggestions of other nn options.
