You know, you spend all this energy thinking up the perfect name for your little ones when the come along, and then spend the rest of your life calling them, "Sausage" or "Chicken" grin

My sister is Nicole known as Coco

Why so determined on nicknames? Surely you should choose a full name you love and let the nickname flow? (If at all) choosing a nickname and forcing a full name from it seems odd.

I know a Courtney who used to try to get people to call her Coco, didn't really catch on though.

My ds' nicknames have nothing to do with their names. Call her whatever you like & lets the nicknames evolve!

I know an Alessandra who is Essie.

The only Coco I know was an ex-colleague who was actually called Gabrielle a la 'Coco' Chanel.

Colette for Coco?

You could do two "Co" names as first and middle and shorten to Coco?

e.g. Colette Constance, or Cora Nicole

Lucinda could be a way of getting to Cindy.

I think Coco is just a nickname, your daughter could be calls anything at all and be called Coco.

As somebody up thread pointed out Coc Chanel's real name was Gabrielle. No link at all between the two.

For me Coco is somewhat synonymous with clowns.

Wrong thread.

Thanks for the ideas. I like essie for Esther the best I think, but am also considering Alessia.

Still haven't found something I like for coco or cindy.

Constanza, Cordelia,Cornelia, Cosette.

Never heard Essie before, I suppose it could be as nooka says, the diminutive form of a lot of names. Estelle, I guess is close.

Cindy is standard dim. Of Cynthia.

Coco is one of those nicknames that are as much a mouthful to say as a full length name. Corinne? Cora?

nooka Mon 19-Aug-13 03:26:33

Cindy is apparently a diminutive for Cynthia. Coco a nickname for names beginning with 'co' but it seems to me you'd need another c/k sound in the middle to be obvious. Chloe does seem to work though.

Essie just sounds a bit odd to be honest, but could in theory be used for any name beginning with or featuring a strong 's' sound.
