Longer names with nickname options

It might not even matter, since we don’t know what we’re having yet anyway, but I want to think about names!

I like names that are longer with more nickname options. If it’s a boy, he’d be [name]Benjamin[/name] and our other choice there was [name]Nathaniel[/name], so if that gives you an idea of our taste.

I like [name]Katherine[/name], but it’s been shot down.

Any other ideas?

I love long names with nicknames too. It’s like a cheat to give your kid more names.

I love [name]Benjamin[/name] :slight_smile: I am expecting twins, and it is our top boys’ name. Our girls’ names are :

[name]Dorothea[/name] nn [name]Dot[/name]/[name]Dottie[/name]/[name]Dora[/name]/[name]Thea[/name] (our top choice)
[name]Matilda[/name] nn [name]Mattie[/name]/[name]Tilly[/name]
[name]Marigold[/name] nn [name]Maggie[/name]
[name]Miriam[/name] nn [name]Miri[/name]/Mimsy.

We also like [name]Annie[/name] nns, our favourite name to give it being [name]Annaliese[/name].

Our older daughter is [name]Ambrosia[/name] nn [name]Rosie[/name], which I know is an acquired taste, but I think [name]Rosie[/name] works very well with [name]Benjamin[/name], so perhaps [name]Rosanna[/name], [name]Rosette[/name]/a, [name]Rosalind[/name], or just [name]Rose[/name]?

Good luck!

I think I’m stuck on [name]Elizabeth[/name] (Probably [name]Libby[/name] or maybe [name]Edie[/name]) and [name]Amelia[/name] (Possibly a [name]Mia[/name] or [name]Lia[/name] if I nn it) right now. Now to see what we’re having and then convince the husband that I’m right. :wink:
