The title is pretty self-explanatory. [name_f]My[/name_f] youngest sister is [name_f]Eliana[/name_f] but I’ve called her [name_f]Ellie[/name_f] from the moment she was born, as has most of my family. I love a lot of [name_f]El[/name_f]- names but I worry that people will try to shorten them to [name_f]Ellie[/name_f], which I don’t want. Of course, it’s possible that she would correct them anyways if she doesn’t want to share a name with her Aunt [name_f]Ellie[/name_f] but I’m curious what people think.
For some, I have other nickname options I’d use instead.
I’ve seen these sorts of polls completely flop before so if that happens, I’d still appreciate your thoughts! Here’s the scale:
1 = The thought of [name_f]Ellie[/name_f] as a nickname wouldn’t have even occurred to me at first
10 = You may as well just put [name_f]Ellie[/name_f] on the birth certificate because it’s what everyone will want to call her
ETA: I GOT RID OF THE POLLS BECAUSE THEY WERENT WORKING :/.
[name_f]Eleni[/name_f] (pn. eh-LEN-ee)
[name_f]Eliora[/name_f] (potential nickname “[name_f]Ora[/name_f]”)
[name_f]Elowen[/name_f] (pn. ELL-oh-wen)
Bonus! [name_f]Nephele[/name_f] (pn. NEF-eh-lee)
Thanks for your votes!
