Ultimate GPs with modest nicknames

Hello Berries! * ˚ ✦

I’ve been making quite a lot of topics lately, so you might be a bit sick of hearing from me, but I just couldn’t resist this topic!

[name_f]Remember[/name_f] is one of my favourite guilty pleasures. While I don’t have the heart to give that name to a child, I was thinking today about the nickname potential that name has!

I’m thinking along the lines of [name_u]Remi[/name_u], [name_f]Emmie[/name_f], [name_u]Ember[/name_u], Mimi… Quite modest, but pretty nicknames!

Then there’s [name_u]Experience[/name_u]! Also a bit of potential, with the likes of [name_u]Peri[/name_u], [name_f]Rina[/name_f], Ia…

So, what are some of your GPs that have modest and unsuspecting nicknames? And, as a bonus question, would you actually consider using any of them?


Everlasting “Ev” has been a favorite of mine for quite some time.

Another would be Noctiluca “Luce” — this one I would consider using, though perhaps a little more as a middle. The idea of Noctiluca comes from Noctiluca Scintillans, a species of bioluminescent marine algae that glows a brilliant bright blue when touched or disturbed. The namesake is beautiful, and bioluminescence has symbolistic significance to me as well.

Absolutely stunning pictures! Weirdly appropriate for me tonight, considering I’ve just enrolled to take a marine science paper next year (considering changing majors to marine science 2023 - will see how next year goes and how I enjoy the paper!)

Anyway, that was a bit off topic! Everlasting and Noctiluca are both absolutely gorgeous, and so very you! I’ve never thought of Everlasting before, but it’s amazing.

Not to steal your name, but I just remembered another one of yours, Bioluminescence - how about [name_f]Lumi[/name_f], [name_f]Cece[/name_f], [name_f]Io[/name_f], Nini/Nina as nicknames? :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

[name_f]Waterlily[/name_f]! You’ve got options like [name_f]Lily[/name_f], [name_f]Tillie[/name_f], [name_f]Lia[/name_f], [name_f]Lilia[/name_f], [name_u]Wiley[/name_u], potentially even [name_u]Wyatt[/name_u] at a stretch. I’d probably consider [name_f]Waterlily[/name_f]!

I also secretly like Vitality for a name. [name_f]Vita[/name_f], [name_m]Vito[/name_m], [name_u]Tally[/name_u], [name_u]Li[/name_u], Lita… Actually, I think I like Vitality so much because of its resemblance to Vitaly - Which is on my list for boys!

[name_f]Epiphany[/name_f] could have [name_u]Pip[/name_u], [name_f]Pippa[/name_f], or [name_f]Nia[/name_f]!

I also really like Wind, I think it has a nice sound. I don’t think I’d consider it… But it does lead me to [name_f]Winnie[/name_f] :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Last but not least, [name_m]Prosper[/name_m]! Maybe [name_m]Ross[/name_m] or [name_u]Perry[/name_u]?


[name_f]Persimmon[/name_f], for a boy. Could easily be ‘Percy’ or even ‘Sy/Simon’.

I love [name_f]Remember[/name_f]! I read a book as a child with a character [name_f]Remember[/name_f] ‘Mem’ and I’ve always thought Mem was such a sweet nickname.

Two names that are GPs for me would be [name_f]Benedicta[/name_f] and [name_f]Benedetta[/name_f]. I think they’re a little too bold for me personally, but [name_f]Bee[/name_f] or Benny/Bennie would be modest nicknames for them I like. Also [name_f]Etta[/name_f] or [name_f]Nettie[/name_f] for [name_f]Benedetta[/name_f].

[name_f]My[/name_f] other ultimate GP is [name_f]Scholastica[/name_f], but the only obvious nickname is [name_f]Lassie[/name_f] which is a little too “dog” for me. I like Sass, [name_f]Cassie[/name_f], or [name_f]Callie[/name_f] as (much) more stretchy nicknames.

I have thought of [name_f]Lumi[/name_f] and [name_f]Io[/name_f] for Bioluminescence, but [name_f]Cece[/name_f] and Nini/a are new! Thank you!

[name_f]My[/name_f] favorite way to [name_f]Bella[/name_f] is [name_f]Belladonna[/name_f], but it’s just a lot. Also, [name_f]Carlotta[/name_f] for [name_f]Lottie[/name_f], but I don’t know if it’s for me.

I think most of my GPs have pretty unsuspecting nn options.

[name_f]Belladonna[/name_f] has [name_f]Belle[/name_f], also [name_f]Elle[/name_f], [name_f]Ellie[/name_f], [name_f]Addie[/name_f], and [name_f]Donna[/name_f].

Cadmium has [name_f]Mia[/name_f].

Evangelise has [name_f]Evie[/name_f], [name_f]Eve[/name_f], [name_f]Eva[/name_f], [name_f]Elise[/name_f], [name_u]Lisa[/name_u].

I’m not sure if I’d use any. Part of me would be sad the more normal nns would cover up the full names I fell in love with.

Ventana (means “Window” in Spanish) nn “Ana” or “Vee”
Windy nn “Winnie”
November “Nova”
Andes “Andy”
Amenity “Mia” or “Amy”
Possibility “Posie”
