I thought I’d found it – the perfect name!  It’s a sweet little nickname for a longer, old-fashioned family name we’re considering.  It’s…

Maisie.  Pronounced mae’ zee.  Also spelled Maizie.  I love the names from which it originates, but I thought Maisie was a cute, still classic, but slightly more unique nickname for a little girl. I thought I’d hit the jackpot.

Until Chris pointed out that since our last name is Cobb, it’d be weird to name her “Corn” – aka Maize.

So, no cigar.  Sigh. Back to the drawing board. We have some strong contenders though.
