Oh wow that was hard! So many great choices to choose from.

I think I like the idea of a classic name with a good nn option to match [name]James[/name] nn [name]Jack[/name] (which is so cute btw!).

That’s why I voted for [name]Eliza[/name], [name]Elizabeth[/name] and [name]Harriet[/name]. [name]Lovely[/name] classic names but so many nn’s to choose from. I particularly like [name]Eliza[/name] nn [name]Lizzie[/name]/[name]Elle[/name], [name]Elizabeth[/name] nn [name]Bea[/name]/[name]Libby[/name]/[name]Elsa[/name]/[name]Betsy[/name] and [name]Harriet[/name] nn [name]Hattie[/name]/[name]Etta[/name].

[name]Bridget[/name] nn [name]Bea[/name] would also work, as would [name]Scarlett[/name] nn [name]Carly[/name]/[name]Lettie[/name] (but I don’t think [name]Scarlett[/name] has the same classic feel as [name]James[/name]), and [name]Margaret[/name] nn [name]Daisy[/name], which I prefer as opposed to using [name]Daisy[/name] on its own.

I adore [name]Lydia[/name] and it’s probably my favourite name on your list but the only nn I can think of is [name]Lydie[/name], which is ok but I don’t love it. Nn’s aren’t the most important thing though so this is still a great choice. My fav combos are:

[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Harriet[/name]
[name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Daisy[/name]
[name]Harriet[/name] [name]Isobel[/name]
[name]Bridget[/name] [name]Eliza[/name]
[name]Scarlett[/name] [name]Abigail[/name]
[name]Margaret[/name] [name]Isobel[/name]
[name]Daisy[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]
[name]Lydia[/name] [name]Harriet[/name]/[name]Bridget[/name]

I’m not a huge fan of [name]Bonnie[/name] (too nicknamey for [name]James[/name]'s sister but cute), [name]Rachel[/name] (seems a little dated and overdone to me) or [name]Ellen[/name] (just lacks something and is a little plain). One suggestion for you though - [name]Helena[/name]. It seems to be a similar style to some of your favourites and has the same meaning as [name]Ellen[/name] and I think [name]Helena[/name] and [name]James[/name] would be a lovely sibset as would [name]Lena[/name] and [name]Jack[/name]!

Good luck and hope that helps a bit :slight_smile:

[name]Hi[/name], what a great list you have! I chose [name]Eliza[/name], [name]Bridget[/name] and [name]Lydia[/name]. My favorite would be [name]Eliza[/name] [name]Harriet[/name], then [name]Bridget[/name] [name]Isobel[/name], then [name]Lydia[/name] [name]Ellen[/name]!

Thankyou! ljandrl: yes that was a big help. [name]Helena[/name] is nice but not comparing to those on our list already although [name]Nelly[/name] is adorable - sorry! These are the nicknames we have been considering:
[name]Eliza[/name] - [name]Lizzy[/name]
[name]Bridget[/name] - [name]Bridie[/name] ([name]Bee[/name] is cute too though ljandrl…) - just love [name]Jack[/name] and [name]Bridie[/name]…
[name]Daisy[/name] - none (not a fan of [name]Margaret[/name] sorry ljandrl - it’s too serious sounding!)
[name]Bonnie[/name] - none - can anyone think of a name that this could be short for?
[name]Scarlett[/name] - none or poss [name]Letty[/name]?
[name]Elizabeth[/name] - [name]Lizzy[/name] or [name]Betsy[/name] or [name]Betty[/name]
[name]Lydia[/name] - can’t really think of any… poss [name]Didi[/name]?
[name]Rachel[/name] - [name]Ray[/name]
[name]Ellen[/name] - [name]Ellie[/name]
[name]Harriet[/name] - [name]Hattie[/name]

Any other opinions?

I chose [name]Lydia[/name], [name]Scarlett[/name], and [name]Elizabeth[/name].
[name]Lydie[/name], [name]Lettie[/name], or [name]Libby[/name]!

I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Bonnie[/name] but perhaps not with the last name Crocker ([name]Bonnie[/name] Crocker… there is SOMETHING wrong with that).
I love [name]Lydia[/name]. My grandmother was actually named [name]Lydie[/name] so I might be partial to [name]Lydia[/name].

I chose [name]Daisy[/name], [name]Bridget[/name] and [name]Eliza[/name] :slight_smile:
