We're trying to pick a name for DD2. DD1 is Evelyn, and we want something with a similar feel. So far, Hazel is in the lead. The only problem is, I really want a name with a nickname, and we can't think of a good one for Hazel. Any ideas?

Love Hazel and would probably nn Zelie (which is a different name).
Evie and Zelie!

I love the name Hazel. Not sure I can think of a nn though. Does it need one?

Hazy? Or just Zee.

I know a Hazel and she goes by 'Haze'. Lovely choice of name. I'm sure a NN will come naturally.

It doesn't have any obvious nicknames, why does it need one?

Thanks for the suggestions. We'd thought of a couple of these, but it's good to know that other people would use them.

I have a name that doesn't shorten, and always wanted a nickname, so I want to pick names with nicknames for my kids.

I love Hazel. It doesn't need a nickname.

A nickname often has no connection with a person's given name.

The Hazel I know is Tizzy.

I could only think of Haze...

If you are at all a Nick Drake fan, you could have Hazel Jane and have Hazey Jane.

If you've not heard the songs - there are 2 of them, check out Youtube.

Nut is great! By sure I'd want to call my dd that though. wink

What about Squirrel? Would be a cute nickname for a toddler at least smile (Though having said that I know a grown up bloke with nname Badger, & it suits him very well)

Mine is affectionately called 'nut' or 'da nut ' sometimes in the house. But Hazel doesn't really have any shortening. It's why we chose it!

I have a Hazel and DH calls her Hazlet confused. My DMum calls her Hazy, which I hate, but mostly it's just Hazel with no shortening.

The only Hazel I know gets called Haze, I think choosing a nickname before a baby is born might not work out unless you are going to call her the nickname all the time people usually make up their own to call people.

My dd is Hazel Megan. Nicknames are Nutmeg, Haze and Hazey.
