erzsi1:I really like Abbey. It has a special connection to me, but I don't know if it would work as a stand alone...
Should I just use Abigail and use the NN Abbey?

emd79:I would use Abigail...I love that name. For a nickname, I like the spelling Abby much better than Abbey.
This. The Abbey spelling is weird to me. It sounds like a monastery, not a person, and since there's no E in the original name I don't know what it's doing in the nickname. Abigail is a great name, though.

Yes, I agree with all the PPs. There are plenty of ways to spell the nn- Abby, Abbie, Abbey, so whatever works for you is fine, but I'd say definitely give her the full name and not just the nn.
Manderlin923:I would definitely use Abigail over just Abbey. Give her some options so she's not stuck with a nn if she doesn't want one as she ages.
This. And I like the spelling - I have a cousin with that NN, spelled that way.
Just throwing in that I know a Katie, Jenny, and Bobby and those are the names on their birth certificates, so I guess in the end you can just do whatever you want to do.
