What can the nickname Dot be short for?

I am not a huge fan of [name_f]Dorothy[/name_f] or [name_f]Dorothea[/name_f].
Anything else that [name_f]Dot[/name_f] can be short for?
[name_f]Do[/name_f] you think [name_f]Theodora[/name_f] is too much of a stretch for Dot/Dottie?

Any other suggestions that I haven’t thought of?

I think theodora could work

[name_f]Diantha[/name_f]
[name_f]Donata[/name_f]
[name_u]Dutton[/name_u]

[name_u]Or[/name_u] a middle/first mix something like ‘Dora Tamsin’

I think [name_f]Theodora[/name_f] could definitely work. You could also do a first middle combo…Example

[name_f]Dolores[/name_f] [name_f]Tess[/name_f]
[name_f]Dolce[/name_f] [name_u]Tatum[/name_u]

[name_f]Theodora[/name_f] could word!

I will suggest [name_f]Eudora[/name_f]! A bit of a stretch but I’ve seen it work!

[name_f]Theodora[/name_f] works!

I’ll suggest [name_f]Theodosia[/name_f] and [name_f]Isadora[/name_f]

I have [name_f]Dot[/name_f] and [name_f]Dottie[/name_f] as a nickname for [name_f]Ottilie[/name_f] on my list :slight_smile:

I do think [name_f]Dot[/name_f] work for [name_f]Theodora[/name_f], especially if you call her that often!

[name_f]Theodora[/name_f] would definitely work! [name_f]Dora[/name_f] could be an option too!

Domitilia
[name_u]Dakota[/name_u]
[name_f]Donatella[/name_f]
[name_u]Dusty[/name_u]
[name_f]Diamante[/name_f]
[name_f]Theodosia[/name_f]
[name_f]Demetria[/name_f]
[name_u]Peridot[/name_u]

I think it definitely works for [name_f]Theodora[/name_f]. I second the suggestions of [name_f]Theodosia[/name_f] and [name_u]Peridot[/name_u] and will add [name_f]Odette[/name_f].

Another vote for [name_f]Theodora[/name_f] nn [name_f]Dot[/name_f]!

There’s also [name_f]Theodota[/name_f], to make the “dot” part more obvious.

Oh, and [name_f]Dorit[/name_f]!

Plus: [name_f]Dovevet[/name_f] (I love this!) or [name_f]Dvorit[/name_f].

theodora for sure works !

honestly dot could work as a nickname for anything with prominent d and t sounds in my mind:

edith
delight
adalet
dora
bernadette
desdemona
delyth
aphrodite
dove

[name_f]Aphrodite[/name_f]
[name_f]Donata[/name_f]
[name_f]Odette[/name_f]

[name_f]Theodora[/name_f] ‘Dot’ works for me

Maybe…

[name_f]Delilah[/name_f] [name_f]Ottilie[/name_f] ‘Dot’
[name_f]Theodosia[/name_f]
[name_f]Eudoxia[/name_f]
[name_f]Eudora[/name_f]
[name_f]Delores[/name_f]
[name_f]Dominika[/name_f]
[name_u]Dove[/name_u] [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f]
[name_f]Daisy[/name_f] [name_u]October[/name_u]

I love [name_f]Dottie[/name_f] on its own
