Stumped and Starting Over!

[name]Hi[/name] Berries - please help name my little girl, she’s due in 4 weeks! We’ve called the baby a few names here and there ([name]Violet[/name] and [name]Vera[/name] so far), but now that it’s crunch time, I’m starting to panic!

Here are some considerations, but I’m totally open to suggestions…
I’d love to honor my mother, [name]Nancy[/name], with the MN, but the name does not have to be [name]Nancy[/name] itself. We have a vowel-heavy Italian last name, pronounced Voo-oh-soh, so I feel like the name needs to be easily pronounced.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!! :smiley:

I love [name]Violet[/name] and [name]Vera[/name]!

I can’t tell if you are looking for different first names or just middle name ideas that honor [name]Nancy[/name]?

I’m especially fond of [name]Vera[/name] as it seems more unusual. Here are some other suggestions:

Thanks for the suggestions ollieb!

I love those two FNs as well, but I’m having trouble with the combinations… I’d like to use some form of [name]Nancy[/name] as the mn, but don’t think that any work particularly well with [name]Violet[/name] or [name]Vera[/name]… So I feel like its back to the drawing board on the FN… :?

I looked up [name]Nancy[/name] and found these variations. [name]Nan[/name], Nanee, [name]Nanou[/name], [name]Nanette[/name], and [name]Ann[/name] ([name]Nancy[/name] is a dimunitive of [name]Ann[/name]). Who knew?

[name]Violet[/name] [name]Nan[/name]
[name]Violet[/name] [name]Nancy[/name]
[name]Violet[/name] Nanee
[name]Violet[/name] [name]Nanou[/name]
[name]Violet[/name] [name]Ann[/name]

[name]Vera[/name] [name]Nancy[/name]
[name]Vera[/name] [name]Ann[/name]
[name]Vera[/name] [name]Nanette[/name]
[name]Vera[/name] [name]Nanou[/name]

Any form of [name]Anne[/name] would work, so [name]Anne[/name], [name]Anna[/name], [name]Annabel[/name], [name]Anneliese[/name], [name]Annika[/name], etc. Most of those sound great with [name]Violet[/name]. Other names in the same vein as [name]Violet[/name] and [name]Vera[/name]:
