Nellie vs. Eleanor nn Nellie
Do you think Nellie is ok as a name on its own or better as a nick name for Eleanor?
The Top Baby Name is...
Better as a nickname in my opinion,
Other suggestions could be:
Penelope nn Nellie
Sanela nn Nellie
Chanel nn Nellie
Janelle nn Nellie
Helena nn Nellie
Elaine nn Nellie
Eileen nn Nellie
Natalie nn Nellie
I prefer a full name on the birth certificate, but called by a nickname if desired. I don’t really like Eleanor because it seems old-ladyish in my opinion. Penelope nickname Nellie would be a better option. :-)
give her a full name. as for Nellie I’ll always think Nellie Olson.
I think Nellie works better as a Nickname, but I don’t think Elenore really goes with it. I like poster 2’s suggestion of Penelope. Here are some more:
Anelise (there are several spelling variations on this name)
I think it works well on it’s own if that’s what you prefer but I really love Eleanor nn Nellie or Nell.
Nellie (or Nell) is an established nickname for Eleanor, Ellen or Helen since Medieval times so I think it will work just fine. I also think it is very, very pretty. I like Nellie on it’s own too. We had a similar dilemma when we had to decide between Tilly or Matilda nn Tilly for our daughter. We decided on just Tilly in the end and it was the right choice for us.
