I can't decide! Any opinions to help sway me one way or another.

Bridie / Connie as the preferred nicknames though I would try to use the longer version when possible.

Definitely Constance. DH has a cousin who is called 'Connie' and we love the name but obviously can't have it!

KatnissK Thu 07-Dec-17 18:54:10

I also prefer Constance

Connie is lovely. Bridie is very very old fashioned and not in a good way.

I like them both but I think Bridget is absolutely beautiful! I love Bridie and also had a Great Aunt Bridgey.

Constance, don't like Bridget at all

❤️ Bridget.

I adore Constance, so that would be my choice.

Bridget is OK, but I can't bear Bridie.

I really like both. Can't decide

Bridget is unique but Constance is likewise a beautiful name. Can't make up which one. Just flip a coin i guess smile

Constance. Bridget makes me think of Bridget jones.

Not overly keen on either but Constance would be my choice.

Love birdie as a nn

I liked Constance. Until my OH kept saying things like
'Constantly ...a pain in the ass'
