Nicknames from first and middle name

I’ve started to really like nicknames that come from both the first and middle names and I wondered if anyone else enjoys that. I thought it could also be a nice way to get to a nickname you like without using the first name for it. [name_m]Feel[/name_m] free to share your opinions about it and/or your favorite examples!

Some examples I like…
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Blythe[/name_f] Sybbie
[name_u]James[/name_u] [name_m]Matthew[/name_m] [name_u]Jem[/name_u] (I know [name_u]Jem[/name_u] can just be a nickname for [name_u]James[/name_u], let me have this one :grin:)
[name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_u]Marlowe[/name_u] [name_u]Romy[/name_u]
[name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] [name_u]Cassidy[/name_u] [name_f]Elsie[/name_f]
[name_f]Elowen[/name_f] [name_f]Violet[/name_f] [name_f]Elvie[/name_f]
[name_f]Elowen[/name_f] [name_f]Fiona[/name_f] [name_f]Elfie[/name_f]

I love this way to get a nickname! I have a daughter named V3ra El!zabeth, whom we often call [name_f]Vera[/name_f] [name_f]Lib[/name_f] or [name_f]Vera[/name_f] [name_f]Beth[/name_f], so I also call her Veebee. I like the name [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] but my husband doesn’t, so this is the closest I’ll get. :smile:

These are pretty cool - unique and unexpected and it might be a good way to get something fun from something more classic.

I like your options :slight_smile:

A few I’ve thought of…

[name_u]Arthur[/name_u] Roland/Logan - [name_u]Arlo[/name_u]
[name_f]Lily[/name_f] [name_f]Jane[/name_f] - [name_u]Laney[/name_u]
[name_f]Jillian[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f] - [name_u]Jae[/name_u]
[name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_f]Xanthe[/name_f] - Max/Maxie
[name_u]Julian[/name_u] [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] - [name_u]Joss[/name_u]
[name_f]Lydia[/name_f] [name_f]Opal[/name_f] - [name_m]Lio[/name_m]
[name_f]Penelope[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f] - [name_f]Posie[/name_f]
[name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m] [name_u]Asher[/name_u] - [name_m]Nash[/name_m]

@danilib Veebee is so cute :face_holding_back_tears:
@Greyblue I love [name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m] [name_u]Asher[/name_u] - [name_m]Nash[/name_m] and [name_f]Lily[/name_f] [name_f]Jane[/name_f] - [name_u]Laney[/name_u]! And you’re so right, it’s a great way to get something fun out of a classic.
@clair.de.lune [name_m]Friday[/name_m] [name_u]Sun[/name_u] “Fun” is adorable :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: I love [name_u]Haley[/name_u] [name_u]James[/name_u] “Hayes” too!

I have one on my list! I have somebody in my life I wanted to honor named [name_u]Ronnie[/name_u], but I’m not a big fan of any of the names [name_u]Ronnie[/name_u] would be a nn for, so I came to the same idea of using both names to get nn [name_u]Ronnie[/name_u] and fell in love with…

[name_u]Rowan[/name_u] [name_f]Valerie[/name_f] “Ronnie”

I love these! Some of mine are really big stretches, but I think it still works. Plus plenty of people have nicknames that don’t sound anything like their given names.

[name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] [name_f]Reine[/name_f] “Lena”
[name_f]Mireille[/name_f] [name_f]Lune[/name_f] “Mila”
[name_f]Daphne[/name_f] [name_f]Lilac[/name_f] “Nell”

These are so excellent! I absolutely adore this idea! [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Beth[/name_f] nn Sybbie is beyond. That’s so gorgeous.

Some ideas I have are…

[name_f]Anna[/name_f] [name_f]Katherine[/name_f] nn [name_f]Anna[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f] (Honestly, any name with [name_f]Katherine[/name_f] as the second name/middle with a nickname ___ [name_f]Kate[/name_f]. It’s just gorgeous. [name_f]Alice[/name_f] [name_f]Katherine[/name_f] nn [name_f]Lissy[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f] is another, [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Katherine[/name_f] nn [name_f]Betty[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f] yet another… just always beautiful!)
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f] nn [name_f]Jolie[/name_f]

[name_f]Sarah[/name_f] [name_f]Margaret[/name_f] nn [name_u]Sam[/name_u] or [name_u]Sammy[/name_u]
[name_f]Maude[/name_f] [name_f]Elise[/name_f] nn [name_f]Molly[/name_f]
[name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] [name_f]Ella[/name_f] nn [name_f]Bella[/name_f]

[name_m]Otis[/name_m] [name_u]Michael[/name_u] nn Omi or [name_m]Tim[/name_m] or [name_m]Timmy[/name_m]
[name_u]Atlas[/name_u] [name_m]Jeremy[/name_m] nn Lammy or AJ
[name_m]Wilbur[/name_m] [name_m]Teague[/name_m] nn [name_u]Bertie[/name_u]

[name_u]Lowell[/name_u] [name_m]Simon[/name_m] or [name_u]Lowell[/name_u] [name_m]Zachary[/name_m] nn [name_m]Wells[/name_m]

The only ones from my own list are [name_f]Lissy[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f] and [name_u]Sam[/name_u] / [name_u]Sammy[/name_u]. But now, I’m considering this option so much more! I love it! Thank you for inspiring me. :heart_eyes:
