Hi All,

I'm in the "Love formal, "proper" names but end up using slightly unusual, funky nicknames day to day" camp!


With that in mind, can you think of any "proper" names for Essie?

I work with someone called Estée that goes by Essie

Esther is the one I would think of

I used to know a girl called Essi, I think it was a Finnish name (could be wrong).

It sounds cute but...

Essie sounds like a make of wood stove. Or is it a cooker? Esse, anyway.

Sorry. But you might want to bear that in mind.

I know an Esther who is an Essie.

Essie has always felt like it's made up of initials - like the poster who mentioned Sarah Elizabeth. Could be any names though!

It is also a make of nail polish.

But, if you like it, why not just use it, instead of as a nickname?

Esabel? It's a very old Scots form of Isobel dating back to the 1670s.

I know an Elizabeth who goes by Essie (though I think there's a family reason behind it)

Estée like Estée Lauder ..Lovely name smile

I know an Esme nn Essie.

Or also Cressida which has already been suggested. Really good/cute/fun nn, no matter the formal name. Feels like Essie could be any type of girl.

I like it. Any of the suggestions above works.
