(28 Posts)

My two children have nn names - Charlie and Tilly.

Charlie gets called Charles by me, and he says he likes both names (but prefers to be called Charlie by his friends, is 11)

We are TTC baby 3. This time I would like to use a traditional name and then use the nn. For a boy we are pretty much set on Albert with nn Albie, Bertie.

Girls names we like are Mabel (my family hate this)
Beatrice nn Bea (a friend has used this...but we don't really see them a lot)

Family names considered in mn spot Elizabeth, Magaret, Amanda

Need girl name suggestions with cute nn. I quite like Libby from Elizabeth but not 100%

Daisy is a traditional nn for Margaret and really pretty for a little girl, whilst allowing a more "grown up" name later.
