I'm certainly not expecting or expecting to expect, however in the case that I did ever expect (probably via adoption) in the future, I'd love to use the name Nellie after my great-grandmother. As far as I know, her full name is just Nellie. Unfortunately, that just doesn't fly for me. I've gone through tons of names that work as Nellie for a nn (Elena, Ellen, Helen, Penelope, Annabelle, Danielle, Janelle, Janella, Aniel, etc.), but none of them are it, you know? The only two that I could see using are as followed:
Finella-Soooo, I read that this is the anglicized version of Fionnuala, which is said Finn-noo-luh. It does look like it should be said Finn-nella though. Is that a legit pronunciation, or is that just tampering with it? I like this one, because we're working w/a very Irish ln.
Cornelia-This name is gorgeous, but I'm worried again that it's just not pronounced how I want it to be in order for Nellie to make sense. Is it more like Cor-nee-lee-uh rather then Cor-nell-ee-uh, or do either work?
Thanks for your thoughts ladies, & if you can think of anything that works w/Nellie as a nn that I didn't mention, please feel free to share!
