So I had my baby girl 2 months ago and we named her a name I've always loved... Vinnie. But I have been unsettled about it ever since because everybody keeps asking what it's short for (nothing) and I can tell they don't like it because if they've heard of it they've only heard of it as a boys name ... nn for Vincent. I have personally only known women who went by Vinnie and it was nn for Lavinia, Elvina, Vinessa or Vienna. Well anyway, we have decided to change her middle name from Tess to Jean after my Nana and I'm working on the name change process this week... but I was thinking maybe I could think of a full name to go behind Vinnie while I'm at it. Can anyone help me think of other names Vinnie could be a nn for? I have thought about most names that start with Vin but I wonder if there are others that have a Vin in the middle somewhere or even just a V and an N in the name somewhere? I love old fashioned names!
One other question ... should I spell it Vinnie or Vinny? It is currently Vinnie but I think I like it with a Y better?
I am so overwhelmed by this! TIA!
