Libby as a nn for Charlotte?

We love [name]Charlotte[/name] but we don’t like all the usual nicknames like [name]Charlie[/name], [name]Lottie[/name], [name]Carly[/name], [name]Lola[/name] or CC. We do like [name]Libby[/name] and we thought it’s a stretch but it might work. I know [name]Charlotte[/name] doesn’t need a nickname but we’re nickname people and she would ultimately end up with a nickname regardless.

Have you thought about [name]Chuck[/name] as a nn?

I feel [name]Libby[/name] is a stretch but you can make it work. It reminds me of someone “being lib” so it wouldn’t be my style. But if that doesn’t bother you go for it.

[name]Chuck[/name] is cute (like from Pushing Daisies!). but the problem is that our daughter has somewhat of a boyish name ([name]Mattie[/name]) so we kind of want a cutesie girly first name and not something that also ends in the “ie” sound. We’ve had such a hard time agreeing on something so [name]Charlotte[/name] is the current favorite with [name]Sylvie[/name] as a middle name. We just can’t seem to agree on a nickname that will work and still sound girly. We like [name]Lola[/name] but [name]Lola[/name] is my sister’s nickname. My husband doesn’t like [name]Lottie[/name] and I don’t want to use [name]Charlie[/name] or [name]Chuck[/name] because of the boyishness.

I can’t quite see [name]Libby[/name], but I love that nickname and I love [name]Charlotte[/name]. If you really want to use it then go for it. I’ve certainly heard longer stretches. Have you ever thought of doing a nn that is a combo of the first and middle name. I know a girl named [name]Caroline[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] and she goes by Carabeth. I’m not sure what middle names you’re thinking of or if you even like that idea, but I thought I’d throw it out there.

Also, if you like the nn more than the name you could use [name]Lydia[/name] for the nn Liddy.

Hmmm, [name]Libby[/name] is a stretch. What about [name]Lolly[/name] or [name]Shar/name?? OR…why not name her [name]Sylvia[/name] [name]Charlotte[/name]! Less common and definitely girly and you could use nn [name]Via[/name].

I don’t really see the connection between [name]Libby[/name] and [name]Charlotte[/name], tbh. [name]Libby[/name] for me is just connected to [name]Elizabeth[/name], What about Tellie as a nn for [name]Charlotte[/name], still a stretch but it seems more logical to me.

[name]Sylvia[/name] [name]Charlotte[/name] would be beautiful, you could also call her [name]Sylvie[/name] in that case.

Or [name]Cara[/name]? That’s a bit of a stretch too.

Good call on [name]Lolly[/name]! I knew a girl who when by [name]Lollie[/name] in college and I always thought it was adorable. I’d go with that!

[name]Lolly[/name] or [name]Arley[/name]?

I think [name]Libby[/name] is a stretch for sure, and I don’t love the idea of pulling nicknames out of nowhere. So sad that none of [name]Charlotte[/name]'s standard nicknames seems suitable for you. If you’re looking for a nickname to use at home and not in public settings (such as school), anything goes. You could just name her [name]Charlotte[/name] and see what nicknames arise. It’s kind of sweet to see what little pet names pop up once baby arrives!
