Full names for my favourite nicknames

What full names can you think of for these nicknames…





We love nicknames in our family, and I love these ones but they seem too nicknamey to be full names… my kids all have more classyish name for these ones to fit in…

we have:

[name]Sierra[/name] - CC, [name]Sara[/name] (in Australia we say this as Sah-rah)
[name]Elodie[/name] - nn: [name]Elle[/name], [name]Ellie[/name], O
[name]Jasper[/name] - nn: [name]Jas[/name], JJ
[name]Oakley[/name] - nn: [name]Oak[/name], [name]Oakie[/name]

so we want a fuller name that matches the others but gives either those nicknames or similar…

I used to babysit a [name]Rory[/name], and her full name was [name]Aurora[/name]. Also, I believe [name]Sadie[/name] is supposed to be a nickname for [name]Sara[/name].

I love your children’s names! :slight_smile:


[name]Sadie[/name] – I guess you could do [name]Mercedes[/name] to get the [name]Sadie[/name] sound. Perhaps that wouldn’t work due to the car association, but there is also a literary connection with The [name]Count[/name] of [name]Monte[/name] Cristo.

[name]Cleo[/name] – Cleome is beautiful flower and I think it makes a really cool sounding name!

[name]Rory[/name] – I like [name]Aurora[/name] as a full name for this one.

[name]Eve[/name]/[name]Evie[/name] – Perhaps [name]Genevieve[/name]? Or [name]Geneva[/name]?

Personally I think [name]Sadie[/name] and [name]Cleo[/name] stand well on their own, I really can’t think of full names for these without going the traditional route of [name]Sarah[/name] and [name]Cleopatra[/name].
[name]Rory[/name]- Obvious full name for [name]Rory[/name] would be [name]Aurora[/name], I also like [name]Lorelei[/name] ([name]Gilmore[/name] Girls used [name]Rory[/name] as a nn for [name]Lorelei[/name])
[name]Eve[/name]/[name]Evie[/name]- [name]Evangeline[/name]/[name]Evangelina[/name]

[name]Sadie[/name] - I see this as a full name and all the [name]Sarah[/name]'s I know go by [name]Sarah[/name], not [name]Sadie[/name], but technically [name]Sadie[/name] comes from [name]Sarah[/name], but some other ideas: Cassada, [name]Cassidy[/name], [name]Cassandra[/name], [name]Saida[/name], [name]Seraphina[/name], [name]Sandra[/name], [name]Alessandra[/name]

[name]Cleo[/name] - [name]Cleopatra[/name], [name]Cliona[/name], [name]Cleona[/name], Clotide, [name]Chloe[/name], Cleophalus

[name]Rory[/name] - [name]Aurora[/name], [name]Caroline[/name], [name]Gloria[/name], [name]Victoria[/name], [name]Lorelei[/name], [name]Rosemary[/name], [name]Lorraine[/name], [name]Rowena[/name]

[name]Eve[/name]/[name]Evie[/name] - [name]Evangeline[/name], [name]Eva[/name], [name]Evelyn[/name], [name]Everly[/name], [name]Evonne[/name], [name]Evette[/name]

I like [name]Evelina[/name] for [name]Evie[/name]!

[name_m]Just[/name_m] for the record…the show [name_m]Gilmore[/name_m] girls did not use the NN [name_u]Rory[/name_u] for the name [name_f]Lorelei[/name_f]…[name_f]Lorelie[/name_f] was the mother and rory was her daughter. they were 2 separate characters…lol.

[name_f]Lorelai[/name_f] (as it’s spelled in the show) named [name_u]Rory[/name_u] after herself, changing only the middle name from [name_f]Victoria[/name_f] to [name_u]Leigh[/name_u]. They just called her [name_u]Rory[/name_u].

Now about the names, I think they can all stand alone even in your sibset, but as full names for them, I like:

[name_f]Alexandra[/name_f], nn [name_f]Sadie[/name_f]

[name_f]Calliope[/name_f], nn [name_f]Cleo[/name_f]

Really, really think [name_u]Rory[/name_u]'s okay on its own, but I agree with all of catloverd’s suggestions

[name_f]Evie[/name_f] - [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f], [name_f]Evadne[/name_f], and [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f]

[name_f]Sadie[/name_f] and [name_f]Cleo[/name_f] are both lovely and they stand alone.
[name_f]Eve[/name_f]/[name_f]Evie[/name_f]…[name_u]Evelyn[/name_u], [name_f]Evaline[/name_f], [name_u]Everly[/name_u], [name_u]Ever[/name_u], [name_f]Evanna[/name_f], [name_f]Evetta[/name_f], [name_f]Evony[/name_f]…?

[name_f]Sadie[/name_f] - I personally think this can stand alone.

[name_f]Cleo[/name_f] - love love love this! [name_u]Abby[/name_u] from Appellation Mountain (http://appellationmountain.net/) has a daughter called Cl@ire C@roline Wr3n who she calls [name_f]Clio[/name_f], which I think is gorgeous! [name_f]Claire[/name_f] nn [name_f]Clio[/name_f] would go perfectly in your sibset. Also, this is a little more out-there, but I [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] [name_f]Clementine[/name_f] nn [name_f]Cleo[/name_f] :slight_smile:

[name_u]Rory[/name_u] - I second (or third or fourth!) [name_f]Aurora[/name_f].

[name_f]Eve[/name_f]/[name_f]Evie[/name_f] - lots and lots! My favourites: [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f], [name_u]Evelyn[/name_u], [name_f]Guinevere[/name_f], [name_f]Geneva[/name_f], [name_f]Ginevra[/name_f], [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f].
