Hi, there!Daughter: Edith
I'm listening to "The Distant Hours" by Kate Morton as an audiobook, and it struck me that the daughter's name is nested within the mother's name:
I doubt it's a coincidence, judging by how this book is going on, but it got me thinking: what other name combinations do this? Besides obvious nickname ones. My favorite of the few I could think of was Nathan/Jonathan.
I think it would be a cool, inside-jokey way of connecting otherwise unrelated names. What do you think?
Ooo, I like it! Let's see how many we can think of!
Hm, Anna from Hannah might or might not qualify, but Anna from Joanna wouldn't. Beth from Elizabeth doesn't, but Eliza might because the sounds are so different and it's its own separate stand-alone name rather than a nickname---sort of like Jonathan and Nathan. Lia from Amelia might.
Amaya and May
Annabelle/Isabelle and Abel
Belinda/Melinda and Elin
Candace and Ace
Liana/Lillian/Jillian/Brianna/Brian and Ian
Shannon and Ann
Jeremy and Remy
Catherine and Erin
Elizabeth/Isabel/Annabel and Abe
Corinne and Orin
Felix and Eli
Julian and Lia
William and Lia
Some of these might not qualify; it's a little hard to find the line.
