Sibling Name Suggestions

We are expecting #2 - don't know boy or girl yet - but have started to think of names.  We have a daughter named Gr@ce. 

Girl names we are thinking of:  Jane, Audrey, Hannah, Lily, Hattie

Names we like but can't use:  Pa!ge, Lucy, T!mothy, J@ck, El!zabeth, Em!ly


3 Questions:

1) What can Hattie be a nickname for?  My husband loves it but I'm not certain I'd want it as the "full"name.  Do you think

2) Can you suggest any boy names based on the girl names above?  We cannot come up with anything we like! 

3) Can you suggest any other girl names based on our list?

Hattie is the traditional nickname for Harriet.

1. As Miriam already wrote, Hattie is traditionally a nickname of Harriet or Henrietta.

2. The little girl we know with your daughter's name has a little brother named Paul.

3. Have you tried the Name Matchmaker on this site? Put in three names you like, and it'll suggest others that may suit. You can specify the gender, or not.

While a Henriette/a can be nicknamed Hattie, the traditional nickname is Hetty/ie.

There was a thread a year or so ago by someone who loved the nickname Hattie but hated the long/formal names that it was normally tied to.  The mad genius solution was to name the girl Manhattan.

I know an adult Hattie. That's the full name. It was intended to be the permanent nickname for a relative namesake but another relative balked that they'd intend to call the longer-named child by a nickname. Their solution was to just name her the nickname. I haven't heard of any problems associated with the choice.

Some names that could shorten to Hattie:

The boy's name I first thought of reading yours was Henry. I love Jane and Lily. Some other suggestions:

Eleanor, Amelia, Vivian, Charlotte, Sophia, Claudia, Olivia

Andrew, Titus, Bennett, Nolan, Oliver, James, Everett

Those are just some different ones I can think of. Congratulations on your growing family!
