What could Indie be short for?

This is not one I’m considering for my list, I’m just curious about it. What names could [name]INDIE[/name] be short for?
So far I’ve thought of [name]India[/name], [name]Indiana[/name], [name]Rosalind/name, [name]Marinda[/name], [name]Indira[/name], [name]Adelind[/name] and Katelind … any others?

[name]Lucinda[/name], [name]Lavender[/name], [name]Melinda[/name], [name]Belinda[/name], [name]Winifred[/name] (pushing it)…

Maybe [name]Indra[/name]

I’ve heard of [name]Indie[/name] being a nn for [name]Linden[/name]. I think it’s pretty cute. :slight_smile:

[name]Indigo[/name], [name]Indio[/name], [name]Indre[/name], Indeg, [name]Indah[/name]…I love [name]Indie[/name] :slight_smile:

I knew a girl named Indica once, which I think sounds beautiful. For some reason though I can’t find anything about the name anywhere on the internet, maybe it was something her parents made-up?

EDIT: I just googled Indica and actually found that it’s a species of cannabis and the latin word for India. Oh dear.

I love [name]Indie[/name] too. But not sure on any of the longer forms.

[name]How[/name] about …


My vote is for indigo :slight_smile:

My vote goes to [name]Indira[/name] or [name]Rosalind[/name]. Could also be used for (trying not to repeat) [name]Winifred[/name], [name]Belinda[/name], [name]Linden[/name], [name]Arminda[/name], [name]Romilda[/name], [name]Imelda[/name], [name]Dorinda[/name], [name]Jacinda[/name], [name]Lucinda[/name], [name]Miranda[/name], [name]Kalinda[/name], or [name]Tamarind[/name].

If we have another girl, we’re planning on naming her [name]Lucinda[/name] nn:[name]Indie[/name]. Not sure why, can’t put my finger on it, but I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Indie[/name] as a nickname. We also considered [name]Jacinda[/name] with nn [name]Indie[/name].


As we too love [name]Indi/name We were considering [name]Indigo[/name] for our baby girl due [name]Jan[/name] 2012 but then we googled “[name]Indigo[/name] Children”…I also like Indica but the drug connection is concerning. Indica is a scientific plant specification (hence the drug). So we are thinking Indika ([name]Indi[/name]) spelling change…she would be named after the ocean blue morning glory flower Ipomoea indica - Oceanblue Morning-glory, Koali 'Awa, Blue Dawn Flower, Blue Morningglory, Blue Morning Glory - Hawaiian Plants and Tropical Flowers

Would love your thoughts!

I once met a little boy named Indica and I thought it was a great name, definitely not made up. Hopefully there is another meaning for it besides canabis and [name]India[/name]!
