what do you all think of the name Veronica, she will most likely be called Ronnie most of the time?
with a short middle name like Lynne

It's nice. Roni/Ronnie is cute as a nn.
You're not pregnant though are you.

@MikeUniformMike no I'm not.

Guessed that from another thread you started.
Doesn't mean it's not a nice name. It was on the list we had for DD1 but we decided we wanted a name that wouldn't generate a nn.

I love it but I'm a bit forrin and grew up reading a comic called archie where his main target was a black haired beauty called Veronica and i loved the character so I'm biased.

I met a toddler named Veronica recently! She was very, very cute and wearing a rainbow jumper.

I had never thought about the name before then but it suited her perfectly. I complimented her mum on the choice.

@FartnissEverbeans aww did it suit a toddler, I didn't know wether it would suit the younger ages , hence the nn Ronnie

I like it but it sounds a bit too much like verucca to my ears

I've always Th ought it's an 'ugly' name. Both Veronica's I know are known as Ronnie.

I love Veronica (love feminine grand old European names with history) but hate Ronnie (hate anything nicknamey/unisex/ending in "ie"). Just my opinion! If you like Ronnie, there are a few other names you could use as longer versions.

@PetraRabbit ooo like what? let me hear x

Love it, and love Ronnie as a nn.

Also love Nora / Norah.

I love Rita and Dinah too.

Harsh sounding and old fashioned. It’s in the same boat as Bernadette, Bridget, Moira.

It’s a no from me.

Love Veronica.

More popular overseas spelled with a k not a c, I know a Croatian one who is Vika for short

b3x3y Sun 01-Dec-19 17:48:21

@FizzyGreenWater personally I prefer the c spelling

puds11 Sun 01-Dec-19 17:57:38

Love Ronnie. Also love the name Nancy.

b3x3y Sun 01-Dec-19 18:24:35

@puds11 I love Nancy as well but it's become so popular
