I am not a fan of boy's names on girls, but I have some suggestions for girl's names with boy nicknames:

Alexandra (Alex)

Kristin/Christina (Chris)

Josephine (Jo/Joey)

Matilda (Matt)

Veronica (Ron/Ronnie)

Nicole (Nick/Nicky)

Danielle (Dan/Danny)

Francesaca (Frank/Frankie)

Hi there.

A feminine full name w/a unisex nn?

I'm also not a fan of traditionally male names on girls, but feminine names with boyish nns should be a good middle ground for the two of you.

Wow! thanks! I can't wait to take this list to DH and watch his mouth drop open. haha! I am just kind of hoping for a boy at this point so we can stick to his love of boy names! Last night's suggestions for a girl from him were Noa and Brennan :) eek!

What about Tatum? It's not girly, but used mainly on girls. Plus you could use the nn Tate, which I think could actually work nicely on a girl.

Actually Noa isn't a bad choice, it is a girl's name that sounds the same as the boy's name Noah. It is a legit girl's name though that has been used in Jewish communities for ages.



Thank you for the sig Mary
