Vintage Nicknames for Girls

I am loving, loving, loving vintage nicknames for girls. You know those nicknames that are just so sweet and old lady chic? The names you find in the hundreds on the popularity charts from 50-100 years ago. Because there are so many vintage nicknames out there I decided just to focus on 10 today. Two of the nicknames on this list (Minnie and Winnie) I have written more in-depth blog posts about and I plan to do the same for the remaining.

1. Minnie: Minerva, Arminta, Wilhelmina, Amelia, Mink, Philomena, Romina, Margaret, Adamina, Cosmina
