For DD2?

Elizabeth would be shortened to Lizzy
Abigail to Abi
Phoebe, probably not shortened, although no doubt we'll give her some sort of embarrasing nickname that we won't be shouting out in Waitrose.

DD1 is Helena/Nell, DS1 is Isaac/Zac

We have a fairly English-sounding surname, two syllables, begins with S.

I like Lizzy the best (Elizabeth)

Abigail (Abi) is a bit more modern than Lizzie.

I have an Elizabeth shortened to Lizzie but had Phoebe and Abigail on our girls list too.

we waited till she was born and she was just a Lizzie from the start.
