Would it work better as a full name on its own or a nickname?
Which full name for Connie do you like the best?
Concetta (prn. con-SHET-uh, con-CHET-uh, or con-SET-uh--which do you like best?)
Any other suggestions for full names? Middle names suggestions for Connie or any of the full names?

Connie is not really my style, I don't think I'd ever use it. But, though dated, it is kind of cute. Kind of
I'd say definitely a nickname. I'm not too fond of those as full names.
A little girl who lives in my building is named Connie, and I'm pretty sure her name is Concetta.
It is actually considered a dated, old name in Italy-- you see it on old women rather than kids/teens, though obviously there are exceptions.
When a little girl's name is Concetta, stay assured she was named after her grandma.
Concetta has also many, many nicknames in Italy, lots of which are quite different from the original name. God only knows where they came from
My grandma's name is Concetta, and I've never heard anyone call her that. To me, she's always been Titti.
The Italian pronunciation is con-CHET-uh, by the way.
I would only ever use Constance. I don't like the other alternatives at all :/

Constance is probably my favorite out of the ones you listed.
And I know it's really unique, but I love the name Connemara. It's a place name, a county or district or something in Ireland. I just love the way it sounds.

I don't think it's a name I'd ever use, but what do you think of these:
Concetta Rose (con-SHET-uh--I just love this prn)
I know, I pair Rose with everything, but if I don't end up using if for a first name, I definitely want to use it as a middle name...

I think it would work better as either nickname or on its own.
Constance is my choice for the nn Connie!
Hope this helps Rosie Pose!
