Nina is lovely, I'm not sure about ninette to be honest, I've never heard it before but it sounds a bit like a product rather than a name to me, sorry.

Definitely Nina.

I love Nina, Ninette sounds like a nicotine replacement therapy.

Love Nina. I know a Nannette if that helps. She's lovely and sparky and is know as Netty.

Definitely not Ninette, it sounds a bit made up fancy, and the obvious nickname is Ninny.

Ninette sounds like those funny little creatures in In The Night Garden confused

Nina is lovely

I love Nina, and dislike Ninette. I like Nanette though. My grandmother was Nicolette, which is pretty I think but perhaps a bit nicotine-ish.

As it's for a middle name I'd think more about which works better with first and surname though.
