What do you think?

My SO has picked the name Melissa for our daughter. I named our other 2 kids so he named her. My son is 2 and calls his little sister sissy. She is 10m old. I was trying to find a nickname or a shorter version of it for them to learn.
What do you think of Missy? Or do you have any other suggestions?

  • Missy is cute :)

    my 2 1/2 year old also calls his sister "sissy" so it's kinda stuck now LOL she's 16 months old. Her real nickname though is Bekah (short for Rebakah)
