I’m still looking for a girls name and considering both [name]Scarlett[/name] and [name]Calista[/name].
[name]Scarlett[/name] won’t have a formal nickname and [name]Calista[/name] husband says he will call “[name]Cali[/name]”. The problem with that is that I have a step-daughter already named [name]Allison[/name] (5) that almost always goes by “[name]Allie[/name]”. [name]Even[/name] though their full names wouldn’t rhyme, their nicknames would. He doesn’t care, but I’m having a hard time with it and need opinions on how that sounds to you.
On the other hand, my father-in-law is terrible at shortening names and I fear naming her [name]Scarlett[/name] would inevitably turn in to “Scar” no matter how much I freak about it. (He even calls our already shortened [name]Allie[/name] “[name]Al[/name]”). Husband won’t agree to a nickname for the name, however, and likes it as-is. I tried [name]Carly[/name], [name]Lettie[/name], etc. and he hates them, saying it’s already and two-syllable name that has no need for nn.
Here are my questions:
[name]How[/name] bad is the [name]Cali[/name]/[name]Allie[/name] combo for step-sisters if their full names don’t rhyme?
Which name do you like better and why?
[name]Scarlett[/name] would be [name]Scarlett[/name] Joesphine (after DH), but any ideas on [name]Calista[/name]? My mn is [name]Rachelle[/name] and husband says it is too “weird”. Thoughts?
