I like Macey or Letty or Remy
Which one do you think smile

Is letty short for something?

ThroughThickAndThin01 Wed 29-Mar-17 08:51:48

Not Macey. The other two are ok.

Rockaby Wed 29-Mar-17 09:00:31

I like Letty as a shortening for Violet or Scarlett, but it's a bit too much like Lottie on its own, which I've never been keen on as a stand alone name anyway. She might end up explaining "no, Letty, not Lottie". Not the end of the world, but worth considering imo.

Remy I'm still unsure about. I've only ever heard of it on here, despite having lived in France, (it's French is it)? It sounds a bit medical to me. Like rheumy or Rennies.

Macey is lovely! I vote for that by miles and miles, unless Letty is short for Scarlett / Violet / Henrietta or something. In which case I like both equally.

Rockaby Wed 29-Mar-17 09:01:17

Although Henrietta would probably become Hettie or Etta.

Sophronia Wed 29-Mar-17 09:16:29

Letty if short for Violet, Scarlett or Letitia.

I like Macey but spelt as Maci, not keen on Letty and Remy I only know boys with that name but it's cute

ClaryBeanHorshAndMe Wed 29-Mar-17 09:31:55

Not Macey (or Maci). But Marnie would be cute.

Anyhow: I like Remy.
Letty is adorable but it's imo a nickname. For Lettice, Scarlett, Violet, Juliet etc. I wouldn't put Letty on the bc. So, my vote goes to Remy.

Congratulations smile!

Congratulations! Letty is my favourite.
I've only ever heard Remy as a boys name.

Remy is a male name. It's French, and short for Remigius - a saint who played a well-known part in early French politics. The name was origininally Latin and means 'oarsman'. Grammatically speaking, it has a masculine ending.

The saint also gave his name to a well-known tourist town in Provence - and is still the name of a very, very famous French brandy

Letty is pretty, as a nn for Violet, Lettice etc etc as suggested above.

Or Collette (Letty).
I quite like Macey, but Remy for me, is more masculine.

Samm2403 Wed 29-Mar-17 10:57:11

Thank you for your input guys! So undecided..... never thought it would be such a hard decision to make.
I hope when she arrives and I see her I'll know smile

Remy is a boys name.
Lettie is short for something
Macey is a shop

What other options do you have? How about Maisie or Charlotte with Lottie for short? Or Lettonie, lettie for short?

Rockaby Wed 29-Mar-17 11:05:38

Macey is so much cooler than Maisie IM personal O. Reminds me of Macy Gray, who I think is pretty cool. I think I prefer the spelling Macy.

I think there was a thread on here recently where someone had named their DD Macy but people kept assuming it was Maisie. Something to consider, if that would bother you OP.

Charlotte with nn Lottie is nice too.

Lemonnaise Wed 29-Mar-17 11:05:53

Macey is lovely.

Kazzawazza69 Thu 30-Mar-17 19:30:56

I like Maci/Macy/Maisie

SuperBeagle Thu 30-Mar-17 20:36:15

I like Macy the best (this spelling).

Letty is sweet as a nickname. Remy is traditionally masculine, although I know one who's a girl so I think it can work for a girl too.

Oh, and Mac(e)y is much nicer than Maisie.

MelinaMercury Thu 30-Mar-17 23:31:22

Macey is my favourite by a long shot, although I do prefer it spelled Macy/Maci.

Letty is fine as a nickname but it doesn't sound like a stand alone name to me, maybe short for Colette, Violet?

I'm not keen on Remy, Renee is similar but much nicer.

Joeybee Fri 31-Mar-17 06:28:54

They are all good nicknames but I feel they should be short for something - gives the name more flexibility and room to grow.

GenerationYmember Fri 31-Mar-17 08:52:47

I love Macy.

Really dislike Letty and not fussed on Remy.

ClaryBeanHorshAndMe Fri 31-Mar-17 08:56:58

Romilly nn Romi or Milly?
