What do you think of the name Connie? I think it kind of cute (though a bit dated, maybe) It's certainly not a name you hear a ton anymore.

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?)

Constance

Constantina

Any other suggestions for full names? Middle names suggestions for Connie or any of the full names?

Thanks!

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. :P
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 :/

Connie makes me think of conceited. It's not my style.

I've always loved the name Connie for personal, sentimental reasons.

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.

Thanks everyone for your feedback!

I don't think it's a name I'd ever use, but what do you think of these:

Connie Rose

or

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...

Indeed Connie is a bit dated, but I think it has great appeal.

I think it would work better as either nickname or on its own.

Constance is my choice for the nn Connie!

Connie Alexandra
Connie Louise
Connie Lillian
Connie Rae
Connie Susannah
Connie Grace
Connie Scarlett
Connie Sophia


Constance Eleanor
Constance Grace
Constance Sophia
Constance Moriah
Constance Rose

Constance Adelaide
Constance Amelia

Hope this helps Rosie Pose!
