Suggestions and opinions needed please!

(I know I just posted the other day, but bare with me.)
What so you Berries think of [name]Roni[/name]/[name]Ronnie[/name] as a stand-alone name for a girl?
My SO just told me today that he loves this name, and I completely agree! (I like it slightly better than his other suggestion of [name]Rosie[/name].) And though I really like the formal name of [name]Veronica[/name], I don’t quite love it.

Opinions on what you think, and suggestions would be lovely (and are most certainly welcomed).
Thank you very much!

Go with [name]Veronica[/name] - your daughter will thank you for it when she’s an adult. [name]Veronica[/name] gives her the formality and dignity of a sophisticated name for when she wants a career, but has the fun and tomboy-ish nickname of [name]Ronnie[/name].

I really don’t like [name]Ronnie[/name] or [name]Veronica[/name]. [name]Veronica[/name] sounds really dated and [name]Ronnie[/name] sounds too manly.

I agree with both previous posters. [name]Ronnie[/name] does come off as manly and [name]Veronica[/name] is very dated . . . however if you love it I would go with the full [name]Veronica[/name]. It will age a lot better than [name]Ronnie[/name] will and be a better name when she is an adult. Giving her options is a good thing.

I think [name]Ronnie[/name] is kind of cute. But, as flick said above, [name]Veronica[/name] would be better.

Well, I love [name]Sophronia[/name].

I knew a girl [name]Ronnie[/name]. I don’t like it (sorry)

I don’t like it not one bit. [name]Veronica[/name] however would be pretty.

I really don’t like it. [name]Ronnie[/name] on its own brings up images of [name]Ronald[/name]. [name]Veronica[/name] will be a classy option for her to have when she’s older with the nn [name]Roni[/name].

[name]Veronica[/name] nn [name]Ronnie[/name] is cute, but I’m not a big fan of a stand alone [name]Ronnie[/name]. I know I wouldn’t like it. [name]Veronica[/name] is very sophisticated and could be very professional on a grown woman.

I think that some nicknames can work as stand alone names–[name]Tess[/name], [name]Fay[/name], [name]Bess[/name], [name]Mae[/name]–but I think since it’s a masculine nickname she’ll constantly be asked “What is that short for?” and I firmly believe in giving kids options. She might be a super girly-girl and dislike having nothing but [name]Roni[/name].
If you don’t like any of the longer options ([name]Verona[/name], [name]Sharon[/name], [name]Rhonda[/name], [name]Bronte[/name], etc.) then maybe think about giving her a longer middle name that could give her possibilities.

I think [name]Ronni[/name]/[name]Ronnie[/name] would be cute as a nn for a little girl with the full first name of [name]Veronica[/name]. It’s kind of like a female [name]Randi[/name] whose full first name is [name]Miranda[/name].

I wouldn’t spell the nickname [name]Roni[/name], though. It looks too much like (and might be pronounced like the [name]Roni[/name] in) [name]Rice[/name]-a-roni. (“ROH-nee”)

I have a childhood friend named [name]Veronica[/name] nn [name]Ronnie[/name]. Know that she is a dr she goes by [name]Veronica[/name] exclusively.

Suggestions to get to [name]Ronnie[/name] ( Although [name]Rosalie[/name] nn [name]Rosie[/name] is sweet)

[name]Rhonwen[/name] ( welsh)
[name]Rhona[/name] ( welsh)
[name]Roanna[/name] ( Latin)

I’m not fond of either [name]Ronnie[/name] or [name]Veronica[/name], but if you feel like you really want a [name]Ronnie[/name] please let it be a nn for [name]Veronica[/name].
goodkarmavt’s suggestions of [name]Rhonwen[/name] and [name]Rhona[/name] are wonderful and I would second them.
