Nicknames for Amelie

I’m not pregnant but I’m hoping to be very soon and it’s never too early to think of names - I love names! :wink:

I love the name [name]Amelie[/name] but if I do choose it, I can’t use the nickname [name]Amy[/name] because I’m close to an [name]Amy[/name] and an [name]Aimee[/name], so it’s not possible to use it really.

I came up with a couple myself - what do you think of [name]Milly[/name] or [name]Ally[/name]? I like [name]Milly[/name] better, I think. [name]Ally[/name] seems to take away something from the beauty of [name]Amelie[/name], if that makes sense. [name]Do[/name] you have any others? And do you have any suggestions for middle names that would sound nice with [name]Amelie[/name]? My surname is one syllable and starts with S :slight_smile:

Thank you, nameberries!!

I like [name]Milly[/name] a lot.
Maybe [name]Melly[/name] or [name]Mel[/name]?

As for middles, I’ve always loved the sound of [name]Amelie[/name] [name]Claire[/name].
[name]Amelie[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name]
[name]Amelie[/name] [name]Blythe[/name]
[name]Amelie[/name] [name]Elena[/name]
[name]Amelie[/name] [name]Iris[/name]

Assuming you’re pronounced it AM-el-ee? I think [name]Milly[/name] makes a lovely nickname, and I agree that [name]Ally[/name] takes away from the classic feel of [name]Amelie[/name]. My only other suggestions would be:

[name]Molly[/name] (at a stretchy)

But I definitely like [name]Milly[/name] best out of the lot.

As for middle name suggestions, you might like:

[name]Amelie[/name] [name]Charlotte[/name]
[name]Amelie[/name] [name]Johanna[/name]
[name]Amelie[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]

[name]Amelie[/name] [name]Delilah[/name]
[name]Amelie[/name] [name]Maria[/name]

[name]Milly[/name] is a cute nn and you could also consider something that was related to the middle name you choose.
Quick examples: [name]Amelie[/name] [name]Rose[/name] could be nn [name]Ari[/name] or [name]Ami[/name] (said like [name]Ah[/name]-mee, not [name]Amy[/name]) and [name]Amelie[/name] [name]Laurel[/name] could be nn [name]Leela[/name]? =]

I have a 5 year old niece named [name]Amelie[/name], I think its such a beautiful name - her nn is [name]Millie[/name] and it is also just lovely. Its absolutely the nn she gets called most often.

She also occasionally gets [name]Mil[/name] or [name]Ami[/name] (not [name]Amy[/name], but the soft ah-mee).

What about [name]Emmy[/name]? Or [name]Lee[/name]?

I would go for [name]Lilou[/name]. It’s the nickname often used in French for names that end in -lie ([name]Aurelie[/name], [name]Amelie[/name]).
I think it’s really cute. I like [name]Milly[/name] too though.

Amélie is such an adorable name :smiley:

There’s [name]Mimi[/name], [name]Molly[/name], [name]Milly[/name] and [name]Ellie[/name], or at least those were the ones I could think of. I think that [name]Ally[/name] is a bit too far away from the name (at least if you use the french pronunciation).

Middle name-wise there are the classic: Amélie [name]Rose[/name], but then again - [name]Rose[/name] is such an overused middle name. Others I like include Amélie [name]Charlotte[/name], Amélie [name]Maude[/name], Amélie [name]Josephine[/name] and Amélie [name]Beatrice[/name].

I think [name]Ami[/name] would be adorable, pronounced [name]Ah[/name]-mee.

There’s [name]Mel[/name], [name]Melly[/name], or maybe Li (but that would be a stretch). I personality like [name]Ally[/name], but [name]Milly[/name] is pretty too.

So many lovely suggestions, thank you everyone! I like [name]Lilou[/name] but my cat is called [name]Lilo[/name] so I can’t use that. I also like [name]Ami[/name], [name]Ari[/name], [name]Mimi[/name] and [name]Milly[/name]!! I also quite like [name]Melly[/name], would never have thought of that one!

There are a lot of middle names that have been suggested that are gorgeous! [name]Amelie[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name], I would never have thought of but it’s sounds so beautiful. [name]Amelie[/name] [name]Grace[/name], [name]Amelie[/name] [name]Violet[/name], [name]Amelie[/name] [name]Rosa[/name], [name]Amelie[/name] [name]Laurel[/name], [name]Amelie[/name] [name]Sophia[/name]… so many to choose from!! :slight_smile:

I’d just be careful of “Smelly [name]Melly[/name]” with that one!

Ahhh very good point!

I adore [name]Amelie[/name]! My personal favorite nickname is [name]Millie[/name].

As for middles, my absolute favorite [name]Amelie[/name] combo is [name]Amelie[/name] [name]Belle[/name]. I also love [name]Amelie[/name] [name]Sophia[/name] and [name]Amelie[/name] [name]Charlotte[/name]!
