Imogen Lilly vs. nn Molly vs. Too much of a stretch?
I love the name Imogen, and my husband loves the name Molly. Would Molly be too much of a stretch as a nickname for Imogen Lilly? I know that Mo can be a nickname for Imogen, so I was thinking that maybe we could use Molly, especially if we use the middle name Lilly. What do you think? Thank you!

Well... I guess a nickname can be whatever you want it to be. But seems a bit of a stretch to me. On the other hand, I’ve never been sure how Molly became a nickname for Mary either. So, maybe it could work.
It’s a bit of a stretch. You can call her whatever you want (my sons came up with their own nicknames - they evolved out of whatever they called themselves when they first began speaking and are almost entirely unrelated to their birth names) but you might get some questions and will be explaining her name a lot. Just be prepared.
Is there a reason you wouldn’t just use the name Molly instead of Lilly?
I agree with the post above - If you names her Imogen Molly you could definitely use that as a nickname. Even if you use Lilly, her name is completely up to you and I can understand how you would get Molly from Imogen.
Thanks everyone! I just really like the sound of Imogen Lilly better than Imogen Molly. I was originally thinking of Imogen Felicity but am trying to compromise with hubby.
Why wouldn’t you just name her Molly? Why pick a name if you’re never going to use it?
I don’t want Molly to be her full name; it’s too cutesy, and she may not like it as a grown woman. And I’m in love with the name Imogen and will likely call her that most of the time.
