DD1's name is Alexis Mei and we call her Alex.<br>
DD2's name is Cordelia Jane and we call her Cori<br><br>
As you can see, we likely girly names with boy-ish nicknames.<br><br>
Now, I'm pregant with DD3, and I'm at a loss! I kind of like Erin, Kris, Toni, and Jessie, but I don't know about the "long names." Erin has no long name; Kris would be Kristina/Christina; Toni would be Antonia???; and Jessie would be Jessica. But none of these "long names" speak to me, KWIM?<br><br>
What do y'all think? I'm a just having PG-brain name-block? Are there some great names out there that I'm just blanking on?<br><br>
Another thing, DH likes fairly traditional and "correctly" spelled names (i.e. I don't think he'd go for Kristina).<br><br>
Thanks!

Of the names you've suggested, I like Antonia. I'm not wild about Toni but it's cute. Jessie could also be Jessamine, or maybe even Jocelyn. Or maybe for Kris... Chrysanthemum? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
How about<br>
Frances or Francesca nn Franny or Frankie<br>
Georgina nn George or Georgie<br>
Charlotte nn Charlie

The long version of Jessie could be Jessamine (means jasmine, I really like it<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/luxlove.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="throb"> )<br><br>
The long version of Toni could be Antoinette.<br><br>
Maxine = Max (I think Max would be cute for a girl)<br>
Bernice = Bernie<br>
Danielle = Danni<br>
Evangeline = Evan ??? (this one might be pushing it)<br>
Roberta = Robbie or Bobbie<br>
Wilhemina = Billie<br>
Stephanie = Stevie<br>
Jaqueline = Jackie or Jack<br>
Natalie = Nate<br><br>
that's all Gramma and I can think of for now!!

Sam and Jack are my BIL's, so those are out.<br><br>
I'd never thought of Max for a girl . . . .<br><br>
Johanna ~ Joey is one we've thought about.<br><br>
I like Robbie, but not Roberta and my Dad's name is Robin, so that's out.<br><br>
I could have an Andie, but not sure about Andrea.<br><br>
George and Frankie are a little too manly. I don't feel like they "go" with Alex and Cori.<br><br>
Antoinette . . . I think I'll pass this by DH and see what he says.<br><br>
Keep the ideas coming, ladies. We're on a deadline here (Jan 4, 2008)! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I LOVE the name Clementine but my husband wont go for it. You could call her Clem.<br><br>
Is Erik too manly? For Erika or Erica. Similar to Erin.

Leslie - I really wanted to name my daughter Leslie. (My husband preferred Maggie - my second, or third, choice. We compromised since I chose our son's name.)

My grandma was Alice Frances and called Frankie from the time she was born (1918) until she died two months ago.<br><br>
My best friends are an Andrea who goes by Andy, a Caroline who goes by Charly, and a Samantha who goes by Sam. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

What about Victoria/Tori? Tori isn't exactly a man's name, but I don't really think of Cori as being mannish either.

Which reminds me. Bernadette, nicknamed Bernie. I have a cousin with this name and nickname and her sister is a Veronica who goes by Ronnie. I have another cousin whose name is Jocelyn and goes by Joss. Not super-masculine but not especially feminine either.
