Looking for full names that will = a certain nickname. Help!

The nickname that I have in mind is Loïe (LOW-ee)
[name_m]How[/name_m] do I get there? So far, here are the full names with which I reckon I could manage that nn; problem is, I’m not especially keen on any. If you can think of others, please add!

  • [name_f]Eloise[/name_f]/[name_f]Heloise[/name_f] (most obvious)
  • [name_f]Louise[/name_f]/[name_f]Louisa[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Lois[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Florence[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Lola[/name_f]/[name_f]Lolita[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Lorelei[/name_f]
  • [name_f]Loraine[/name_f]


Some of these might be a stretch, but I think you could make it work!

Thanks-- you’ve thought of some good ones!
Not sure how I could’ve missed [name_u]Marlowe[/name_u], as it’s already on my list of potential names for baby #2!

[name_u]Loren[/name_u] / Lorenne (laur-ENN)

I agree Chloë and [name_f]Elowen[/name_f] seem sound perfect if i am ‘hearing’ Low-ee right.
But any name with ‘oh’ sound, then perhaps Loh like [name_f]Harlow[/name_f] and [name_u]Marlowe[/name_u] are very good.
An American friend commented that Australians seem to feel a need to use the first letter or syllable or letter rather then a mid or end sound to use as root of nn.
I liked how [name_f]Diana[/name_f], [name_f]Princess[/name_f] of [name_m]Wales[/name_m] chose n/names for their [name_u]Royal[/name_u] Highnesses. Princes’ Wililam and [name_m]Henry[/name_m]. [name_m]William[/name_m] to [name_m]Wills[/name_m] saved the inevitable ‘[name_m]Bill[/name_m]’ -she went away from tradition;but with [name_m]Henry[/name_m] to [name_m]Harry[/name_m] went with traddition, and both examples show how random nnames may be. I have not offered suggestions becuse i find it hard to imagine what your taste is Lots of luck.

[name_f]Eloise[/name_f], [name_f]Lois[/name_f] and [name_f]Harlow[/name_f]/[name_u]Marlowe[/name_u] came to mind. I like [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] best.

I like this nn.

Personally I like some of the names berries have suggested.

Not yet mentioned possibilities.
