Vintage nicknames as full names?

My full name is [name_u]Mattie[/name_u] [name_f]JoHannah[/name_f]. My parents named me after my dad’s aunts [name_f]Mathilda[/name_f] and [name_f]JoHannah[/name_f], but [name_f]Mathilda[/name_f] said there was no way they were forcing [name_f]Mathilda[/name_f] on a girl born in 1999, so they picked [name_u]Mattie[/name_u] as an alternative. I actually like my name, but I hate that people always misspell it like [name_f]Maddie[/name_f].

So this got me thinking about vintage nicknames. Anybody have ones they like? Or are you like me and have one yourself?

Did I miss any?

Nickname names are really common in my country names like [name_f]Ellie[/name_f] and [name_u]Alfie[/name_u] are soo popular that this fashion is slightly dull. But you’ve got a great list there including names that I would necessary class as a nickname such as [name_f]Olive[/name_f] and [name_f]Stella[/name_f] for example.

Other nicknames [name_f]Evie[/name_f], [name_f]Effie[/name_f], [name_f]Delphi[/name_f], [name_f]Rosie[/name_f], [name_f]Callie[/name_f], [name_f]Carly[/name_f], [name_f]Carrie[/name_f], [name_u]Jules[/name_u], [name_f]Vivi[/name_f], [name_f]Livy[/name_f], [name_f]Tabby[/name_f], [name_f]Winnie[/name_f], [name_f]Mina[/name_f], [name_f]Miri[/name_f], [name_f]Lulu[/name_f], [name_f]Lula[/name_f]

My mind has now gone blank!!

: )

I love [name_f]Etta[/name_f] for a girl! And Its in my top 5 so it might actually get used! ( if i ever have a girl)

I think some names sounds too young when they are nicknames ie. [name_f]Maggie[/name_f] but some are absolutly fine to use on their own!

Out of you list here are the ones I think dont need to be a nickname for anything and can stand on their own…

[name_f]Ada[/name_f]
[name_f]Belle[/name_f]
[name_f]Bella[/name_f]
[name_f]Celia[/name_f]
[name_f]Cara[/name_f]
[name_f]Delia[/name_f]
[name_f]Eve[/name_f]
[name_f]Hattie[/name_f]

[name_f]Ida[/name_f]
[name_u]Kay[/name_u]
[name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Lillie[/name_f]
[name_f]Lola[/name_f]
[name_f]Lottie[/name_f]-[name_f]LOVE[/name_f] this one
[name_f]Lettie[/name_f]
[name_u]Laurie[/name_u]
[name_f]Mae[/name_f]
