Im not sure which name I like??!!

So I LOOOOOVE the name Scarlette!

I chose Scarlette Rose for a girl, but now I dont like it THAT much anymore bc I cant come up with a really sweet nickname!

Im NOT calling her Scar, Lettie, Scarly, or anything like that. So now.. Im starting from square one.

I dont want anything common. Scarlette is NOT common.

I dunno. Im stuck. I want a CUTE nickname for her!! Suggestions??

  • I really like Scarlette Rose too. I hate nicknames, I would not shorten it at all. Scarlette is easy to say. I say go for it. I have 3 months left to go until my baby comes & cannot decide on a name either! :)

  • I LOVE LOVE the name Scarlett! You would think with 2 redheads, I would've named one that! Don't worry about a nickname -- something will come to you after she is born. My LO name is Bailey, but we call her "monkey." :-)

    I would not have a nick name for her, or you can make up something totally different. My DD's name is Tulsi but we call her!

    Her older brother couldn't say Tulsi when he was 3, so he called her "Toosie" which eventually turned into "toos", which eventually turned into "moose"...LOL! I love how nick names evolve. You'll find one for her & it does not have to be part of her name.

    My nick name has been "Chica" for 20 years & it sounds nothing like Katalina (my birth name)

    I really like Scarlett though, that is a GREAT name!

  • Scarlett is a beautiful name and a nick name isn't a requirement in life. Besides not all nick names are based off a person's full name. My nick name has nothing to do with my name. My family calls me Crash because I'm clumsy or sometimes Little Red because of my hair. I say give her the name you like and then wait for her to give herself a nick name through actions or personality.

  • I think its a beautiful name and would not worry about a nickname, why name her something so beautiful if you know your not going to call her that?

    Its unique but not weird :)

  • I'm with the other mom's. I would use Scarlette Rose and just not give hear a nickname.

  • Scarlette- Carly could be a nn. Or come up with your own cute nn that isnt derived directly from her first name.
