Baby Names

Full names for the NN Fi

So, MH really likes the NN Fi, and because of that, wants to name our theoretical daughter Fiona.  However, I kind of hate the name, not least because it is made-up (invented by an Irish poet in the 1700s) and reminds me of an ogre (sorry if anyone named their DD Fiona).  So, I am wondering if anyone has any ideas for full names that would have the NN Fi, other than Josephine and Sophie/Sophia?  TIA.

  • I went to college with a girl whose name was Bethany and she went by FiFi or Fi with close friends and family. She also went by Bethie and i think Fi was derived from thie. Point being, it doesn't necessarily have to be a direct derivative of a formal name.

    Andplusalso, every name was "made up" at some point!!  If a name has been around since the 1700's, I think it has proven itself enough to no longer be considered made up.

    (Can you sense my defensiveness of my frontrunner girl name?) 


  • I totally agree with you about Fiona.

    PP's had some good suggestions-Felicity, Phoebe, Felicia, Ophelia

  • My coworker's daughter is Fira (feer_ah). She's a Brit but I've always liked it.

  • The only Fi I know was a Phyllis.

    I didn't know about Fiona, but weren't all names made up at some point? Could it not be grandfathered in?

    Sorry, didn't mean to offend anyone.  Besides, no need to be defensive - I think it is a really pretty name.  Just not for me :-)

    And yes, every name was made-up at some point.  And I suppose it could be grandfathered in, as another poster mentioned.
