Little "baby no name" is now 6 days old and we need to decide which name to pick. It's between Nell and Eve. Love both but...
Eve - I think people may call her Evie which I like but it is currently very popular and this puts me off as I didn't want a faddy name.
Nell - am a bit worried folks will call her Nellie which I don't like.

Opinions please, which do you prefer?

Nell - a lovely name and not too popular

Much prefer Eve. FWIW I know an Evangeline who shortens it to Evie and also an Evelyn who does the same. However the Eva I know is simply Eva and same for the only Eve I've ever known - always just been Eve. I think the latter two are so short that they simply don't require shortening or changing.

Ooohhhh, Nell, please pick Nell! It's so pretty and not commonly used at all, but was very popular in times gone by. I LOVE it and it was on my bump list but has been vetoed by dh. Grrrr....

Definitely Nell, I love it. I think it's a name in it's own right too. Bored of Eve/ Eva/ Evie/ Evelyn/ Evangaline, etc.
