Our baby is due in 7 weeks, and we don’t know if it’s a boy or girl. We have a name picked out if it’s a boy, but are still deciding on a girl’s name. Nothing has jumped out at us as the exact right name. There are a few names were really like, but we have nickname issues:
- [name]Frankie[/name] - we both love this name, and my husband’s grandfather was [name]Frank[/name] so it has special meaning for us. The problem is that I don’t love the names [name]Francine[/name], [name]Francesca[/name] or [name]Frances[/name], and [name]Frankie[/name] feels like a nickname. Any other ideas for full names? Can [name]Frankie[/name] stand alone as a name?
- [name]Callie[/name] - This is another name we both like. We are considering it as a nickname for something longer, but aren’t crazy about [name]Calliope[/name]. Other ideas on this one?
- [name]Imogene[/name] - Opposite problem with this one. We like the full name, but I’m not sure what we’d use as a nickname. Maybe it just doesn’t need one?
Other names under consideration: [name]Sylvie[/name], [name]Penelope[/name], [name]Georgiana[/name] and [name]Miranda[/name]. We like [name]Raine[/name] (a family name) as a middle name if it fits with whatever first name we choose. [name]Raine[/name] could also be a first name, I guess…
I’d like a name that can be both feminine and spunky, which is probably why I am always looking for a name that has a nickname.
Thanks for any help you can give me!
