My first post here and am hopeful to find some suggestions from all you baby naming experts.

Thank you so much!

I'm leaning towards Catherine Elizabeth Lacy.

My mothers middle name was Martinette pronounced Mart-net and I had considered shortening it and using that in the middle. She was called Marty by most of her friends and Martinette by her father. She signed her name martinette.

Elizabeth Marnet Lacy?

I think Marnet would be a unique and lovely middle name. I like its sleek, more modern style paired with the longer and very classic Elizabeth, and the family connection makes it a home run.

Catherine is lovely,  but I think the family connection name  trumps is Elizabeth Martnet  - what about Marta Martinique Martine Martina Martelle Martella Marty Marte Marti Martie

Ok thanks, that's two votes for Martnet and none of Catherine. Would you shorten it from Martinette to Martnet?

Saying Elizabeth Marnet sounds abit harsher than Catherine Elizabeth to my ears. If the family connection trumps sound then Martnet may be the answer.

I want to give this child an edge in life by giving her a really great name and one that is flexible.

I want people who say her name to want to approach her becasue her name excudes trust and grace.

Ideally, her formal names could be spun into many nicknames she could used for differnt people and different situations.

My mom went by Marty Lacy.

Catherine martinette or Elizabeth martinette probably sounds better, less harsh eg Mar tin better or Catherine Marty or Elizabeth Marty or even Marti Marte Marta. I still like Martina, Martine Martinique too

I like Marnet better, probably, though it's a little bit further from your mother's name. I could see her using Marnie rather than Marty as a family nickname that echoes her grandma but is still uniquely hers. It also reminds me of Garnet, which is one of my favorite unisex names and a lovely gemstone (and birthstone for January).

Martinet is a word that means something like "petty dictator" so I would lean toward moving away from Martinette a little more than Martnet. Maybe Martina?

Catherine Elizabeth is also lovely, but the two names feel very similar to me. I like the contrast between Elizabeth and something related to your mom's name. I actually have a friend who named her daughter Elizabeth Catherine (maybe with a K?) because she loved the regal feel and flexibility of both. Then she had a second daughter and couldn't think of any other names that had those qualities in the same abundance--especially nicknames. They ended up going with a name that basically just has one likely nickname. And of course their oldest daughter doesn't need any of the nicknames based on her second name, since there are so many already associated with her first name.

I would keep it as Elizabeth Martinette rather than change Martinette to something else phonetically similar.

If you're looking for flexible, I don't think you could do better than Elizabeth!  I don't think any other name has as many possible nicknames.
