Juliet Sophia nn Sophie?

I’m loving the name [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] and nickname [name_f]Sophie[/name_f]. Nickname would be used interchangeably with first name, but would it be weird if [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] was also called [name_f]Sophie[/name_f] since they don’t relate at all? Or would it be fine since [name_f]Sophie[/name_f] relates to her middle name?

I’d find it weird, but it’s not entirely out of the realm of possibility. Though I’d call her something like [name_u]Julie[/name_u] [name_f]Sophie[/name_f] so that it has more relation to the first name.

I think it would be a little odd personally.

My cousin was always called by her middle name as a nn so I don’t think it’s too weird.
[name_f]Juliet[/name_f] [name_f]Sophia[/name_f] is sweet. [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] [name_f]Sophie[/name_f] would work too.

I think [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] [name_f]Sophie[/name_f] would be a better bet than [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] [name_f]Sophia[/name_f]. That way, she’s going by her middle name, not a nickname of her middle name. [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] [name_f]Sophie[/name_f] nn [name_f]Sophie[/name_f] would be great!

Juliet [name_f]Sophie[/name_f] would lend itself better to this, although I knew someone named J@mes @nthony who went by [name_u]Tony[/name_u], from his middle name. Honestly though, I would wonder why you didn’t just use [name_f]Sophie[/name_f]. If you’re going to call her that, it seems like you like [name_f]Sophie[/name_f] more. [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] could be a name for a potential little sister.

I do think it would be a little strange. I honestly wonder why not just name her [name_f]Sophie[/name_f], or [name_f]Sophia[/name_f] [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] “[name_f]Sophie[/name_f]”? Or, like @SparkleNinja18 said, save [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] for a future sister. [name_f]Sophie[/name_f] & [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] are perfect sister names! If [name_f]Sophie[/name_f] is the name you truly love, I think you should just use it. :slight_smile:


Thank you for your thoughts! Maybe I do need to use [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] as a middle :grin:

I met someone (while working) the other day who went by her middle name. When I verified “Your first name is x but you go by y?” she said, “Yes, I don’t know why my parents did this to me.” She was in her 30s

I knew people growing up who went by their middle name, but switched to going by their first name when they went to college.

I’d find it a bit weird personally but it’s not unusable
