Hey everyone, I was hoping someone could help my sister Hannah...

She's pregant with her first girl (she has a boy, and she just found out she was having a girl) and she says she loves the nickname Manny, but the only name she can think of to go with that is Manuela. She really doesnt like Manuela, but will name her daughter that just to get the nickname Manny out of it. I really want my sister to find a name she loves, so will you guys help think of a name that "Manny" can be a nickname to?


THANKS!!

Emanuelle

Amanda

There's an actress in the UK named Mandana, that's different and pretty.

Mandara, it's Hindi

Manon or Manette, both French

Maranda


Mandaline, from Amanda, means "fit to be loved"

Thank you all! I was about to name Ellie Amanda, so if I love it so much, maybe Hannah will too. Amanda might also get Mandy as a nickname, which is my only concern. Mandalyn is also nice, I will call her tomorow and ask her if she likes them. 'Cause honestly, she will name her daughter a name she really doesnt like (no offense to anyone named Manuela) just to get Manny out of it.

Thanks to everyone!

Isn't Manny a rather....manly nickname for a little girl? This is actually funny though b/c I used to have a kitten who I thought was a boy. I am a huge Red Sox fan, and I was in love with Manny Ramirez at the time, so I named the kitten Manny. Well, a month later it was discovered that Manny was in fact a girl...but she was already a Manny to me and I refused to change it! Everyone would give me crap about it and say "Manny is a boys name, you need to change it!" but I refused. A year later I had to get rid of her b/c my new landlord didn't allow pets so I gave her to my father and his wife. She is now named Gracie
Sorry, I'm sure that story was no help....I dislike Manuella tremendously and agree it is beyond silly to give a name you hate just for a nickname. I like Miranda and Amanda (ironically enough, those are actually the names of my former roomates when I had Manny ) Even Madelyn could potentially get the nickname Manny from it...good luck!

Thanks for all your help!

And Blondie, yes, it is a "manly" nickname, but she loves it....

I called Hannah today, and she said she loves Amanda, Mandeline and she is okay with Mandelyn. Her sons name is Jake, so I think Amanda goes best with that. We'll have to wait until December to know for sure what name she choses......


thanks for all your help!

oh , and pictures of Ellie are here, but I'm not sure where to put them...I'll look around...
