And also are there any possible nn's?

Love it smile . Possible nicknames are Imo and Immy. Also know a Midge!

I know one who goes by Immy, and I've heard of Gen/Jen/Jenny as a nn too.

I really love Immy as nn, but wasn't sure if I was just making it up and it sounded silly.

I like it, mainly because I like Immy as a nickname.

However, the Imogen I know goes by Gen (prn. Jen).

I met a little Imogen nn Immy on holiday over the summer.

Oh I love love love Imogen! If I had another DD she'd be Imogen. I probably wouldn't shorten it.

I love it. DH does not.

Love it! I know an Immy and Imo

My best pal's name. She is known to all as Imi.

I love it but then I have one! She's mainly Immy but seems to be having a preference for being called her full name now that she is 'a big school girl' smile

Love it. I know a little Imogen who goes by Impy as her pet name. Very sweet.

ClaudiaApfelstrudel Sat 12-Nov-16 12:01:50

not very keen on it to be brutally honest

ImSoUnoriginal Sat 12-Nov-16 12:18:36

It's a lovely name but incredibly popular. Nn is usually Immy but I'm liking some of the other variations (not Imo though, that spoils a very pretty name).

SausageSoda Sat 12-Nov-16 12:26:48

I love the name Imogen - Immy as nn - and have a bit of name regret that we didn't call my 4 month old DD this. Can't remember why we crossed it off the list at the time.

KlingybunFistelvase Sat 12-Nov-16 16:53:50

I like it!

SidneyPiecrust Sat 12-Nov-16 16:54:54

Could you have mimi as nn/shortening for images?

kmini Sat 12-Nov-16 21:35:52

Images = imogen

EweAreHere Sat 12-Nov-16 21:41:10

I know several, all lovely girls and a friend's lovely baby.

It's a very pretty name.

QueenLizIII Sat 12-Nov-16 21:42:46

I love it. Would use it myself.

Gruffalosfriend Sat 12-Nov-16 21:43:12

I'm afraid I don't like Imogen at all, it is so unfeminine sounding to my ears, sorry.

Floralnomad Sat 12-Nov-16 21:49:17

Dislike it intensely , not aided by the fact that my DD was bullied by a really nasty Imogen ( nn immy) in yr4 .

GETTINGLIKEMYMOTHER Sat 12-Nov-16 23:06:14

I think it's lovely. Suggested it for dd's no 2, since they were struggling for names, but her dh wasn't keen and she had a little boy anyway.
