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

I actually really love it but then I am a massive fan of these types of names and can't wait until they all come back. Also like Valerie and Yvonne for example. So bored of all the samey trendy names. Jean would also work as a middle name with Veronica.

Norah is a great strong name! Other retro names I like :
Pearl

Susan!
I just think they are all really sweet!

Vera’s okay, but I’m not thrilled about Veronica (It makes me think of Verrucas) and I don’t like Ronnie. I like proper girly and frilly nAmes. Each to their own though.

I really like Veronica and nn Ronnie is very fitting with the popular styles at the moment.

I also really like Valerie and Vivienne which have a similar vibe and start with a v obviously

@Marcipex Me too!!

@17caterpillars1mouse

It's growing on me even more now!! and surprisingly I'm not a big fan of names beginning with V. Veronica is an exception that I've really grown to love:)))

I like Veronica but not Vera, despite having known 2 nice Veras.
Vera Duckworth was Veronica. So Veronica Lynne might be a bit Hmm
I like Lynne and Linda.
You could shorten Veronica to Vron.

Most people wouldn't see it, and if you shortened Veronica to Vera it probably wouldn't be used with the mn.

I like it. Ronnie from EastEnders might put me off. I think it's a saint's name and it's a nice plant.

Mad how people like different things, isn’t it.

It is. The world wouldn’t go round if we all liked the same things, would it.
