Proper name for a Lulu

Hello! My husband and I are expecting our first baby in [name]June[/name]. We are so thrilled, but at a bit of a loss for names. Currently, we’re not sure of the gender, but if this bundle is a girl, I’m particularly fond of the names:

[name]Lulu[/name] [name]Peal[/name] C____
[name]Eleanore[/name] [name]Fern[/name] C_____

Though, despite how I’d love to have a little [name]Lulu[/name], I feel that she would need a proper, full name and I’m not that smitten with
[name]Louisa[/name]/[name]Louise[/name] and [name]Lucy[/name] doesn’t flow well with our last name.

Could [name]Lulu[/name] be a nickname for [name]Eleanore[/name]? Any other suggestions.

Thanks so much for all your help!!

Oh, I just adore [name]Eleonora[/name]. :wink:




I wouldn’t draw [name]Lulu[/name] from [name]Eleanor[/name] personally.

[name]Lulu[/name] could be a nn for a lot of names, although some of these may be stretching the association, maybe they’ll give you some ideas…


I think [name]Lulu[/name] could be a nickname for just about any name that starts with L and I think it works fine as a nickname for [name]Eleanor[/name] too.

[name]Lucinda[/name] (I know [name]Lucy[/name] doesn’t work with last name, but if [name]Lucinda[/name] is full name and [name]Lulu[/name] is nickname, it could work!)
