So i think we have come to a compromise and looks like a girl will probably be Indie/Indy/Indi

I'm sure many of you want me to use a longer name and use Indie as NN but that is NMS
Our son is simply Nate we didn't want it longer when all we would call him was Nate

The same goes with us using the above....

My question is if it is going to be DD2 real name and not a NN what spelling would you go with?

Middle name will probably be Belle or Rae

I know a little girl called Indie, spelled like the first way you chose original.gif

I don't think it matters, but when I went to make her Christmas present I had to go back and check the spelling, 'cause my instinct was to spell it as Indi, like the river.

I would favour the "keep it simple" option and use Indi.

Belle for the first name would go really well.

Going against the PPs, I prefer Indy.

ETA - I do like Nate as a stand alone name, prefer Indy/Indi as a nn. It does look half finished, esp as Indi

Indie! I completely agree with you for just using the name you acually like - why name her something else that you never intend to call her?

Indie to me looks like a misspelling of India. I love the name India, though, so maybe that's why

Indi cause I would not like to use a name with the word "die" in it.

Indi Belle

Indi Rae has a touch of hillbilly-like soundishness to my ears for some reason..

Indi Rae for sure, Indi Belle to me just doesnt sound right when said together where as Indi Rae is really nice and has a more edgier tone to it, I think she would thank you for it later on. biggrin.gif
