What are some of your favorite girl name nicknames?

I realize that with our daughter [name_f]Rose[/name_f], we call her by her nickname ([name_f]Rosie[/name_f]) more than her actual name at this point! I’m sure this will change as she gets older (she’s only 7 months) but it’s making me realize that for a sibling’s name, I want to make sure there’s a nickname that I love, in addition to a full name, and I’m hoping to think of some unique or just generally awesome nicknames for girl names. Any ideas?

Some of my favorites from my current name list:

[name_u]Kit[/name_u] for [name_f]Katherine[/name_f]
[name_f]Bea[/name_f] for [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f]
[name_f]Belle[/name_f] for [name_f]Mirabelle[/name_f]

Any others? I’m ideally looking for one syllable nicknames, but open to whatever! [name_m]Just[/name_m] trying to broaden my nickname horizons! :slight_smile: Thanks!

[name_m]Ah[/name_m] yes! I absolutely adore nicknames.

I love [name_f]Dottie[/name_f] but I’m not sure what it’s a nickname for. I also love [name_f]Edie[/name_f] ([name_f]Edith[/name_f]), [name_f]Em[/name_f]/[name_f]Emi[/name_f] (any [name_f]Em[/name_f]- name), [name_f]Tilly[/name_f] ([name_f]Matilda[/name_f]), [name_u]Jaz[/name_u] ([name_f]Jasmine[/name_f]), Imi ([name_f]Imogen[/name_f]), [name_f]Pippa[/name_f] ([name_f]Philippa[/name_f]), [name_f]Ally[/name_f] ([name_u]Allison[/name_u]/[name_f]Alyssa[/name_f] etc), [name_f]Carrie[/name_f] ([name_f]Cerys[/name_f])
