Ella's mummy wants more children in future & I also have another sister and a brother who might have children in the future and I think I want children, though working with them atm for my college placement sometimes makes me think I don't :) , and I know this is a stupid thing to worry about but I'm worried I'm gunna run out of nicknames.

Ella-Rose is my Princess

what other nicknames could I use?

I call Lilah my Sunshine :)

Some other cutsie nicknames...most are ones I have personally heard...
Sweetheart
Sweet Pea
Honey
Pumpkin
Pea Pie (Don't ask...my mother used to call my sister that all the time...)
Insert name here-Bean (My cousin calls her daughter Andrea, Andie-Bean)
Insert name here-Bug
Boo
Angel
Sugar
Pretty Girl
Buddy
Bubba

Lil' Man

I think nicknames come as the child grows, once you see the baby names just come to you. Often times nns go along with the childs' name. You have plenty of time to worry about it :)

In our family, our kids have little cute namesakes.

Such as:

Evy is Mouse
Noah is No-No
Isobel is Boo

Of course, we throw in Pumpkin, Sunshine, Baby, Princess, Cutie-Pie, etc.

Emery is monkey, bubba, bubbie, pest, punkface, stinkerboy/bug, boy, child, sweet baby/boy. im sure theres other but they are all related to how hes acting at the time with the exception of monkey which he has been since he was born cause he looked like a monkey.

I dont have kids but I have dogs so that is kinda the same...I had Lucy-Goosey who I nn Goo which I think would be cute for a little kids since they get into things and are often sticky and gooey. Now I have Boogie who is Boo-Boo or Fat Boy and Tango is Little Man. (Maybe Fat Boy isnt the best nn for a little kid :) )

When my brother and I were young children, a slightly hippy-eccentric friend of my parents nicknamed us Starshine and Sunshine respectively. It caught on pretty much instantaneously. My parents also shortened the nicknames and alternated between the shortened nickname and the longer one, Connor's shortening was Star and mine were Sun and Sunny. They didn't start calling us by our given names until we requested them to, and even then they still called us by the nicknames occasionally.
Before she died, my mother once mentioned that she wished that these nicknames had been part of our actual names. I think that Kieran Aurelius Basil-Kai and Connor Deja James are already eccentric and long enough as it is though. My brother went on to include his nickname into his third daughter's already way-too-cutesy name.

When my wife was pregnant, I nicknamed the baby Kiwi after her main craving, simply because we hadn't come up with a name for her.

James and his ex gave Nate the nickname Nay Nay because of a boy they used to babysit. It pretty much stuck though he likes to be called Nate. I call him bud or Weeboo.

Alana is harder to give a nickname to. I've been calling her princess or ChiChi.

Thanks everyone. My sister is now pregnant again with Skye-Lily,, who I'm calling Gnome right now cuz in scan pic she moved and ear looks funny like a Gnome. Beth pointed it out and I'm now using it as her nickname,, which I might have to change when she's older. Lol. Your suggestions are all really good,, I'll have to wait and see which one suits her.
