Our Girls names that we have chosen will have the nicknames of
Katherine - Katie or Kate
Karen - Kari
Gabriele - Gabi

Also, some other names and nicknames would be:
Elizabeth - Lizzie, Lizzy, Liz, Eliza or Liza (the last one I saw in a book I read)
Julianna or Juliette - Julia or Julie
Adelaid or Adelaide - Addie
Alexandra - Allie, Ally, Alexa, Lexie
Kaylee or Kayli (or Cayli my neice's name) - Kay

I am sure there are more but I am coming up with zilch! Good Luck!


PM to see if I am available to make a siggy - decisions will be made on a case by case basis.

I actually like my name (I know that sounds bad - sorry) but it's Rebecca - and can be Becky or Becca, which I think both are cute for little girls.

I also like
Elizabeth - and to add to the list of shorter versions - Libby, Ellie, Elle, Ella
Sophia - Sophie
Suzanna - Suzie, Zanna
Loiusa - Lulu
