We are due our third child in a week or so. We don't know the gender, but I am leaning towards baby being a girl (we have a daughter and a son).

We like names that are uncommon but not weird. Both our children's names a three syllables, we shorten our daughter's and it ends with an -ee sound. Our surname is unusual, two syllables and starts in a Y.

I would like a name for a girl that can be shorten to something cute/funky, preferably not ending in an -ee. Something like Georgette shortened to Etta or Evangeline shortened to Lina.

I know I'm a bit vague, but I am open to any suggestions. Thanks1

Hmmm...I do find Nicknames tend to evolve of their own accord, but here are my suggestions:

Matilda / Tilda
Florence / Flo
Dorothy / Dot
Rhiannon / Ria
Theresa / Tess
Eleanor / Nell
Margaret / Meg
Juliet / Jules
Estelle / Stella
