One of my friends is nearly due with her first baby girl. They love the name Mishka for her pn mish (wish with an m) - ka (like cat without the t). They have been asking if it would be better to use it as a first name or as a nickname for Marishka (mah-rish-ka)? Her mn will be [name]Alexis[/name], surname Nemova.
I initially went what??!! when she told me her choice but it’s growing on me now! [name]Just[/name] wondering what you thought? Better as fn or nn?
