Nina is short for...

The nickname Nina is speaking to me today, but I'd definitely want a formal name.  The two listed on behind the name didn't ring for me.  So any suggestions?

Re: Nina is short for...

  • I agree with PPs that Nina on its own is a great name. Honestly I feel like you could probably take any name ending "-ina" (Angelina, Katrina, Serafina) and use the nickname Nina if you really wanted to. Also, the lead actress from "The Vampire Diaries" goes by Nina but her full name is Nikolina.

  • Besides the ones already mentioned, there are Penina and Jeanine.  I really like Nina on it's own though.

  • Thanks, ladies I just can't see adding Nina to older sisters Anastasia and Genevieve.  It just doesn't feel "fair".  I like that each of the older girls have nicknames that can stand on their own and would like to do the same for DD3.  I'm struggling, so I thought I'd try working backward from a nickname.  I'll keep looking.

  • I have a friend Nikolina whose NN is Nina. I love both names
  • Nicolina sounds like a good sibling name for Anastasia and Genevieve with Nina as a natural nickname.  Nina is listed as a diminutive of Antonia on babynamewizard, and Marina and Katharina on wikipedia.
