Think I just discovered my style...

But I don’t exactly know what to call it. This style of nickname is what I love love love, all for either a more traditional/classic/frilly longer version as the formal name. Some of them I haven’t found formal names for yet. But how would you classify these names, and can you think of any others?

[name]Heidi[/name]. -[name]Adelaide[/name]
[name]Betsey[/name] - [name]Elizabeth[/name]
[name]Goldie[/name]. - [name]Margo[/name]
[name]Sadie[/name]. - [name]Scarlett[/name] [name]Sage[/name]
[name]Ginny[/name] - [name]Virginia[/name]
[name]Ginger[/name] - [name]Virginia[/name]
[name]Jenny[/name] - [name]Virginia[/name]/Jenness
[name]Dolly[/name] - [name]Dorothy[/name]/[name]Dorothea[/name]
[name]Daisy[/name] - [name]Margo[/name]/[name]Marguerite[/name]
[name]Dottie[/name] - [name]Dorothy[/name]/[name]Dorothea[/name]
[name]Kitty[/name] - [name]Katherine[/name]
[name]Billie[/name] -[name]Willamina[/name]
[name]Willa[/name]- [name]Wilhelmina[/name]
[name]Birdie[/name] - [name]Bridget[/name]
[name]Dixie[/name] -
[name]Trixie[/name] - [name]Trixie[/name]
[name]Honey[/name] - [name]Honey[/name]
Lady - [name]Adelaide[/name] (only family would call her this)
[name]Queenie[/name] - [name]Quinn[/name], [name]Eleanor[/name]
[name]Cassie[/name] - [name]Cassie[/name]
[name]Polly[/name] - [name]Apolline[/name], [name]Penelope[/name]
[name]Penny[/name] - [name]Penelope[/name]
[name]Hattie[/name] - [name]Harriet[/name]
[name]Hettie[/name] - [name]Henrietta[/name]
[name]Winnie[/name] - [name]Gwendolen[/name]/ [name]Winifred[/name]

What I’m drawn to is the vintage feel. To me they are nice girls from the 50s… Or at least around the 50s, maybe earlier. I like that most of them are not unheard of, but you don’t hear them now at all. Probably my very favorite is [name]Goldie[/name] (well, after [name]Betsey[/name], but i love that so much it can hardly count!) but my husbands is Lady/[name]Heidi[/name] (they will both be [name]Adelaide[/name]). He isn’t too keen on [name]Goldie[/name]. I realized today that I really love [name]Sadie[/name], too. Since [name]Goldie[/name] and [name]Sadie[/name] are traditionally Jewish, I’m looking for some other similar names, but I’m coming up empty.

Any suggestions and opinions are greatly appreciated!!!

If it helps, we’re mostly decided that the first two girls will be
Lulette [name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]/[name]Bliss[/name] OR [name]Elizabeth[/name] Lulette [name]Bliss[/name] nn [name]Betsey[/name]/[name]Lulu[/name]
[name]Adelaide[/name] [name]Katherine[/name] Darling nn [name]Heidi[/name]/Lady
Need something that goes with either [name]Betsey[/name] and [name]Heidi[/name] or [name]Lulu[/name] and [name]Heidi[/name], as well as having a cute little pet name for Daddy to call her (a la [name]Pearl[/name] and Lady).

I’d call your style vintage, giving me a sort of 50s vibe too, but a good number of them also fit what I’d call ‘vintage quirky’ - [name]Goldie[/name], [name]Ginger[/name], [name]Dolly[/name], [name]Birdie[/name], [name]Dixie[/name], [name]Queenie[/name], to pick a few. They’re feminine in an almost cutesy way, but it works because they also have a lot of spunk. I love your style!

I adore Lulette [name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Pearl[/name] and [name]Adelaide[/name] [name]Katherine[/name] Darling as sisters - perfection.

I’ve starred the ones I particurly love, and added in capitals other names they could be short for. I’ll try and give you a couple of suggestions at the end, too.

[name]Heidi[/name]. -[name]Adelaide[/name]*
[name]Betsey[/name] - [name]Elizabeth[/name]*
[name]Goldie[/name]. - [name]Margo[/name], [name]MARIGOLD[/name]
[name]Sadie[/name]. - [name]Scarlett[/name] [name]Sage[/name]
[name]Ginny[/name] - [name]Virginia[/name]
[name]Ginger[/name] - [name]Virginia[/name]

[name]Jenny[/name] - [name]Virginia[/name]/Jenness
[name]Sally[/name] - as both [name]Sally[/name] and [name]Sadie[/name] are nicknames for [name]Sarah[/name], I think they could also both be nicknames for [name]SCARLETT[/name] [name]SAGE[/name]. Also for [name]SALOME[/name], or various variations on [name]ROSALIA[/name], [name]ROSALIE[/name], [name]ROSALIND[/name]
[name]Dolly[/name] - [name]Dorothy[/name]/[name]Dorothea[/name], [name]DOLORES[/name]
[name]Daisy[/name] - [name]Margo[/name]/[name]Marguerite[/name]
[name]Dottie[/name] - [name]Dorothy[/name]/[name]Dorothea[/name]

[name]Kitty[/name] - [name]Katherine[/name]*
[name]Billie[/name] -[name]Willamina[/name]
[name]Willa[/name]- [name]Wilhelmina[/name]
[name]Birdie[/name] - [name]Bridget[/name]
[name]Dixie[/name] - would work for any D name, in my opinion
[name]Trixie[/name] - [name]Trixie[/name], [name]BEATRIX[/name], [name]BELLATRIX[/name]
[name]Honey[/name] - [name]Honey[/name], [name]MELI[/name] meant honey in Ancient Greek, so [name]MELIA[/name] could be a derivative of that
Lady - [name]Adelaide[/name] (only family would call her this)*
[name]Queenie[/name] - [name]Quinn[/name], [name]Eleanor[/name], [name]REGINA[/name]
[name]Cassie[/name] - [name]Cassie[/name], [name]CASSIA[/name], [name]CASSANDRA[/name], [name]CASSIDY[/name]
[name]Polly[/name] - [name]Apolline[/name], [name]Penelope[/name]

[name]Penny[/name] - [name]Penelope[/name]*
[name]Hattie[/name] - [name]Harriet[/name]*
[name]Hettie[/name] - [name]Henrietta[/name]
[name]Winnie[/name] - [name]Gwendolen[/name]/ [name]Winifred[/name].
