How to get to nn "Pim" for a girl

I know it is considered a boy’s name, but I thought [name]Pim[/name] would be such cute girl nn. Too bad [name]Primrose[/name] is part of the whole Hunger Games thing…Prim is such a cute nn too!

Would love creative ways to get to the nn “[name]Pim[/name]”

Primrose was around long before that YA book series… and will be around long after too. The vast majority of people wouldn’t relate the name Primrose to the Hunger Games at all, so you shouldn’t let that stop you.

Primeveire, Primina, or Prima are also names that could, with a stretch, get you to the nickname Pim (which is a darling nickname, by the way). Another, more fun way, would be to give the baby girl the initials P I M and just call her Pim for short. For example, Penelope Isabelle Maren or Patricia Iris Madeleine.

I don’t relate [name]Primrose[/name] to The Hunger Games at all.

But otherwise:

[name]Philomena[/name]/ [name]Philomela[/name]
[name]Pia[/name] (with a mn begninning M - E.g. [name]Pia[/name] [name]Madeline[/name])
[name]Pippa[/name] (Same as above: [name]Pippa[/name] [name]Madeline[/name])

These are dated, but I could see [name]Pim[/name] coming out of them:


You could also consider using a first name that starts with P and a middle name that starts with M, and you could call her [name]Pim[/name] based on her initials.

It would be easiest if the name had all the letters in it but I don’t think this matters too much - I pretty much think nicknames barely need a reason to be there! (e.g. [name]Primarosa[/name], Penzima, [name]Prima[/name] or Purnima)

Examples which all have PI in could be:


Another way of achieving [name]Pim[/name] (utterly adorable by the way!) could be a ‘P’ first-name and an ‘IM’ middle name (e.g. [name]Poppy[/name] [name]Imogen[/name])
However, names beginning with IM are not very common, and most are not really very appealing to me…

Examples could be:

IM names

Also, a close relative has the middle name [name]Pim[/name] - it’s a family name. With this said, you could simply have [name]Pim[/name] as her middle name - I myself have a traditionally boy’s ‘surnamey’ name as my middle (again, family name), and I absolutely love it. (I also love [name]Pim[/name] with alliteration - [name]Perdita[/name] [name]Pim[/name] or Pieta/[name]Pietra[/name] [name]Pim[/name] have a lovely lilting quality for me)

Examples could be (sorry - random guesses of names you might like?!):

[name]Anneliese[/name] [name]Pim[/name]
[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Pim[/name]
[name]Celia[/name]/Caelia/Cielia [name]Pim[/name]
Celandine [name]Pim[/name]
[name]Francesca[/name] [name]Pim[/name]
[name]Ginevra[/name] [name]Pim[/name]
[name]Magdalena[/name] [name]Pim[/name]
[name]Iola[/name]/[name]Iona[/name] [name]Pim[/name]
[name]Maria[/name] [name]Pim[/name]
[name]Merida[/name] [name]Pim[/name]
[name]Rosalie[/name] [name]Pim[/name]
[name]Rosemary[/name] [name]Pim[/name]
[name]Tansy[/name] [name]Pim[/name] (quite short but very sweet)

[name]Hope[/name] this helps - sorry if not. Good luck - [name]Pim[/name] is lovely!

I like the idea of picking names with the initials P.I.M… Does your last name begin with an M by any chance? And I ONLY think Hunger Games with [name]Primrose[/name], although it is a very special, sweet name. [name]How[/name] about:

[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Isla[/name] [name]Maeve[/name]
[name]Poppy[/name] [name]Irene[/name] [name]Matilda[/name]
[name]Pippa[/name] [name]Iris[/name] [name]Molly[/name]
[name]Pepper[/name] [name]Isolde[/name] [name]Maelle[/name]

…or any combinations of these names.

[name]Ah[/name] [name]Primrose[/name] is gorgeous and isn’t really connected with the Hunger Games? It isn’t like [name]Suzanne[/name] [name]Collins[/name] invented [name]Primrose[/name] herself, she has always been lurking around and will always be lurking. If I was you I’d go for it! You seem to love it and the only set back is the novels which shouldn’t be used as a set back especially as most the Hunger Games names haven’t really become popular like with [name]Jacob[/name] and [name]Isabella[/name] concerning the Twilight novels and the main characters names. [name]Primrose[/name] sounds so elegant and she has the nickname you desire too!

I don’t think the Hunger Games has much impact on [name]Primrose[/name] at all, other than the fact it’s probably going to rise in popularity slightly. It’s not like she’ll introduce herself as [name]Primrose[/name] and people will be like ‘Oh, like the Hunger Games!’. I’d be more worried that as a nickname it’s self, [name]Pim[/name] might be mistaken for Prim. It also reminds me purely of Pimm’s, which is a super-popular liqueur in the UK for making summer cocktails.

It seems like almost everything has been suggested, but my initial thought was [name]Pomona[/name]. But if you don’t like the reference to The Hunger Games, it’s not likely you’ll like [name]Harry[/name] [name]Potter[/name] ones either. I do also like [name]Mim[/name], short for [name]Jemima[/name] or [name]Mimosa[/name].

I don’t relate [name]Primrose[/name] to Hunger Games at all. I say use it!

That is funny Oliviasarah about Pimm’s being a liqueur, and [name]Mim[/name] is adorable (I also like [name]Mab[/name]), but here in the U.S. Jemimia is associated with Aunt Jemimia syrup and [name]Mimosa[/name] a drink!

I do love the multiple suggestions for P.I.M. initials (our last name starts with “C” sadly!).

The only reason I am concerned with the Hunger Games reference, is we chose [name]Atticus[/name] as the name for our son, which has a very strong literary connection…so the pressure is on!

There is a [name]Princess[/name] [name]Pamina[/name] in the [name]Magic[/name] Flute opera. I think you could get [name]Pim[/name] out of that.

The earlier suggestion of [name]Paloma[/name] nn [name]Pim[/name] is wonderful imo!!

Pims are a type of cookie, covered in chocolate with either a raspberry or orange filling! Yum! I love them!

[name]Pim[/name] is a masculine Dutch nn for [name]Willem[/name], so you could use [name]Wilhelmina[/name]!

[name]Just[/name] call her [name]Pim[/name]. If you aren’t comfortable putting it on the birth certificate then pick a name you do want for formal use and then just call her [name]Pim[/name]. Nicknames don’t need to be connected to the formal name. I, for one, have never had a nickname that cane from my own name.

[name]Primrose[/name] is gorgeous. I’d say go ahead and use it. Hunger Games is a good series and [name]Primrose[/name] is a beloved character in the story. I wouldn’t let the connection hold you back.
