My husband really likes Abbey and Abigail, which I don't mind, but Abigail was in the top 10 for girl names in 2004 and I don't want that.<br><br>
Any other ideas for a girl name that we could use Abby for a nick name?<br><br>
Thanks,

Abia - great (Arabic)<br>
Abida - worshiper (Arabic)<br>
Abria - my strength (Hebrew)<br>
Abra - mother of many nations, feminine form of Abraham (Hebrew)<br>
Abriana, Abrielle - Italian forms of Abra<br>
Abrial - open, secure, protected (French)<br><br>
But I kinda just like Abbey all by itself. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

What about Abia (Ah-bee-uh), Abiona (Ah-Bee-oh-nah), or Abria (Ah-bree-uh)? Or perhaps use Abigale as the middle name and pick something different for the first name so you have some options? (My own nickname comes from my middle name)<br><br>
And like the pp said, Abbey is nice on it's own!

I immediately thought of Abracadabra... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
One thing to keep in mind with those top ten lists is that the #1 name today is lot less common numerically than the #1 name was a few decades ago. People are picking from a larger selection of names these days. So it might not be a disaster to pick a "common" name.
