Help with full name/ nicknames

We are starting to narrow down our choices for girls’ names, and we both like [name]Stella[/name], but I’m wondering if that would be the full first name or if it’s more of a nickname. Has anyone ever heard of [name]Stella[/name] as a nickname for [name]Elizabeth[/name]? We also like [name]Scarlet[/name], but wonder if that’s too formal for us and what we would call her day to day- [name]Carly[/name] maybe? Any ideas are appreciated- thank you!

[name]Stella[/name] is very pretty. I think it’s too much of a stretch as a nickname for [name]Elizabeth[/name], though. What about:

Steliana (I’m pretty sure it’s legit…)

I don’t really like [name]Scarlett[/name]…


i love the [name]Estelle[/name] name great vintage and [name]Stella[/name] works as a great first name
[name]Scarlet[/name] could also go by cara.
and stella from [name]Elizabeth[/name] is pushing the envelope alot

[name]Hi[/name]! I really like [name]Stella[/name] a lot, and to me, it’s not a nickname. ([name]Stella[/name] is a Latin name meaning star, so it’s definitely a name in its own right.)

I love [name]Scarlett[/name], too, and another nickname you may like is [name]Lettie[/name].

Good luck! :slight_smile:

[name]Stella[/name] certainly isn’t a nickname! If you “want” it to be, then use either [name]Estelle[/name] or [name]Estella[/name], which is actually my favorite name encompassing the star theme…

[name]Elizabeth[/name] has so many great nicknames on its own, so I wouldn’t bring over [name]Stella[/name]. [name]Libby[/name] and [name]Elsa[/name], not to mention [name]Eliza[/name], are my favorites!

As for [name]Scarlet[/name], I would first advice you to spell it [name]Scarlett[/name]. I’m honestly not a fan of this name, for whatever reason, but the [name]Scarlet[/name] spelling in particular makes me think of “harlot.” [name]Don[/name]'t ask me why, as I know this is irrational - some people say [name]Charlotte[/name] reminds them of “harlot” (easy to see why, with the spelling), but I love that name! [name]Carly[/name] is a cute nickname, though, but I much prefer [name]Stella[/name] ([name]Estella[/name]) or [name]Eliza[/name] ([name]Elizabeth[/name])…

Good luck!

I prefer [name]Scarlett[/name] nn [name]Lettie[/name] to [name]Stella[/name] xx
