Benny vs. Bee vs. Bette

Which is the best nickname for Bernadette? I know this name is out there, and that’s why I want my daughter to have a more useable, cool nickname. Bernadette honors both of my great-grandmothers(Bertha and Annette), as well as my husband’s grandfather(Bernard). And Bernadette means brave as a bear! Thank you all. Tamsin and Clark

Genie's Mailbag

Carina in Canada
Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
