Short form for Amelia


We are expecting twin girls. DH and I decided we would each pick a first name and the other would pick the middle name. So we ended up with Amelia Emily and Melanie Paige. We plan on shortening Melanie to Mel but we cannot agree on a short form for Amelia. DH wants to caller Ami and I want Mia. He said he would settle for Lia which I do think is a compromise. What do you think, any suggestions?

Where we live the standard short form of Amelia is Milly. Lots of ladies in the 1920s called Amelia were always Milly and it still holds true here today. The only exception I have heard is one Mum calling her daughter "mealy" but I didn't like that as it reminded me on Mealy worms!

Any of your ideas work though.

I really like Lia! I'm not a fan of alliteration with twins, so Mia and Mel sounds awkward in my opinion. I've always heard Amelia shortened to Amy, so I think Lia is kind of unexpected and unique!

I'd shorted it to 'Lia' (like Leah)

I know a couple here who are shortened to Millie. Other than that I like Lia.
