If I like short and snappy boys names like Finn and Max, what else might I like?

Also I love Mimi for a girl but I think that would have to be a nickname, so far the only name I like that we could use Mimi for a nn is Amelie. Any other ideas?? smile

Rex

Miriam....Marion....

How about Mini as a name

Some great suggestions thank you smile
I really like Rex but don't think I've got the guts to use it as first name!
Also love Flynn as an alternative to Finn.

I like the suggestion of Mini but spelt as Minnie!

I personally really like 'cutesy' girls names (Fifi, Coco, Mimi etc), but I think I would only use them as nicknames and have a 'proper' full name so she has the option to choose for herself. So any variations on those names will be very welcome smile

I get you Op dd is Tiggy....

Her actual name is Antigone....

I love short nicknames I shorten everything....

I think Mimi is sometimes used as as nn for Cosima. Also Clementine, Mirabel, Miriam, Jemima

For Finn: Finbar, Fingal, Fintan (the last is my favourite

Thanks everyone.
I really like Cosima. I also love Seraphina, with a nn of Fifi or Saffy.

Fintan is a great name but I don't think I'd be brave enough to use it!

Cosima is gorgeous

Also Celeste....'Letty'
