Oh and not Tabitha.

Sorry. Couldn't resist.

Erm - don't know.

MrsRobinsonComplex Wed 26-Nov-08 10:15:20

Tegan - not exactly a shortening though!

VictorianSqualor Wed 26-Nov-08 10:16:54

I don't like Tegan.

Cies Wed 26-Nov-08 10:17:25

I was going to say Tabitha...

ummm, don't know any more.

MrsRobinsonComplex Wed 26-Nov-08 10:17:32

No, me either, but love Tiggy

Mrs Tiggywinkle

Traditionally, wasn't Tiggy a shortening for Elizabeth (don't ask me how by the way, I recognise that none of the letters are the same!)

TinTerNetTigger Wed 26-Nov-08 10:21:03

VS, such a good choice of namewink

annasmami Wed 26-Nov-08 10:21:09

I would go for Antigone. Its a classic, old, beautiful name. And it has the option of being shortened to Annie or Tiggy.

JulesJules Wed 26-Nov-08 10:21:52

How about Athene

VictorianSqualor Wed 26-Nov-08 10:23:08

Well, I'm not even pregnant so I can't 'go for' anything grin
But if I was I wouldn't use Antigone, I just know most of the people I know would pronounce it anti-gone plus it wouldn't go well with my other Dcs but I LOVE tiggy as a nn.

just make it the nickname regardless of the name? my dd's nickname is Minnow, totally unrelated to her real name (Tabitha)

what was that royal woman whose cute little nursery nickname ended up being plastered over the Daily Express really called? Alexandra?

PLEASE don't call the poor child Antigone!

TsarChasm Wed 26-Nov-08 12:06:08

I didn't realise tiggy was short for Antigone. Hmm Mrs Antigone-Winkle?

newgirl Wed 26-Nov-08 12:11:12

i think its ok to go straight for tiggy if that's what you like? sounds lovely

VictorianSqualor Wed 26-Nov-08 12:12:20

Gosh no newgirl.
I'd have to have a proper name with Tiggy as a nickname.

TheNewsMongrel Wed 26-Nov-08 12:32:38

I used to know a Tycho who went by Tiggy. (a He not a she).

What was prince charles' nanny's real name?

RoseOfTheOrient Wed 26-Nov-08 12:50:21

I know an Antonia who shortens her name to Tiggy.
