Standalone

[name_m]Hi[/name_m]

I am in love with the name [name_f]Libby[/name_f] at the moment. Not for myself though. What I am wondering is can [name_f]Libby[/name_f] be a standalone name or is it better as a nickname?

Other than [name_f]Elisabeth[/name_f]/[name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] and [name_f]Liberty[/name_f] what can [name_f]Libby[/name_f] be a nickname for?

Thanks.

I know a [name_f]Libby[/name_f] whose name is a standalone; so I think it works just fine. I live in the UK though where nicknames as first names are a common phenomena, so it might be different where you live.
If you’re still not convinced, here are some other full name suggestions:

[name_f]Libra[/name_f]
[name_f]Isabelle[/name_f] and any [name_f]Isabel[/name_f] variant (since it is a variation of [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f])
[name_f]Liesbeth[/name_f]
[name_f]Lisbet[/name_f]
[name_f]Olivia[/name_f]

That’s all I can think of :slight_smile: You could always do an L B combination such as [name_f]Lily[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] and nickname her [name_f]Libby[/name_f]?

I love [name_f]Libby[/name_f] and I think it can stand on it’s own. As a nickname, I like any of the more uncommon versions of [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f].

I think [name_f]Libby[/name_f] can stand alone! I’ve met several kids with the name and they’re doing fine

I like pp’s suggestion of [name_f]Isabelle[/name_f] and [name_f]Lily[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f]. [name_f]Lydia[/name_f] might work, especially with a b middle name. Or maybe [name_f]Lila[/name_f] [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f]

I love [name_f]Libby[/name_f] and think she’s fine as a stand-alone name. I can’t really think of other full names other than those already mentioned. Lilibeth maybe?
