Kessie is a name I’m loving right now. It’s actually from a character from the Winnie the Pooh series. I was wondering what your thoughts were? Is it too diminutive? I just think it’s so cute and could be shortened to Kess for a nickname or to make less “cutesy” for later in life. Thanks!

Just remembered, there was a character from a book I read as a child called Kess. It was short for Kestrel. I actually quite like the idea of Kestrel as a name, however I think it'll always be associated with the Ken Loach film, as a pp mentioned.

So not actual WTP then.
How about Eeyore?
PS: it’s silly.

No it isn’t!“
Yes it is!! She’s a bluebird whom Rabbit adopted.

I would think that you can't pronounce Cassie
IVflytrap · 08/12/2019 12:21
I would have thought Kezia (which I've heard pronounced Kezzy-ah) or maybe Keziah (Kez-eye-ah). I think Kessie is lovely, as a nickname.

It's horrible. I winced just reading it.

No it isn’t!

How about Keziah? Which is a real name.

Or you could do Jessie or Tessie if it’s the end of the sound you like?
BuffaloCauliflower · 08/12/2019 11:28
I don’t dislike the sound of it but I would assume it was a nickname/diminutive, as Jessie is to Jessica
AryaNoOne · 08/12/2019 11:27
It’s fine as a nickname. I wouldn’t use it as a full name. Are there any K or C names you like that you could give her with this being what you call her day to day? I don’t think it needs the full Kess sound though Cassandra and Cressida both have a hint of this.
ShinyNewNameTime · 08/12/2019 11:20
You can’t call a kid Kes ffs.
Leopardprintboots · 08/12/2019 11:18
I would assume chav (sorry I hate that word as much as the next person but trying to be honest)
OrangeSwoosh · 08/12/2019 11:11
Honestly? To me it would look like a typo of Jessie
