View Full Version : Nellie
Have you ever heard of someone called Nellie having the name Ellen instead ? someone told me that,and I dont know.A nick name ?
Yes, Nell is a popular pet name for Ellen, Helen, Eleanor etc.
Nell is short for Helen, so Nellie for Ellen sounds possible to me, Patti.
Snap! I was just wondering where you were when you were needed, Nell :D
Oh dear,I have such a job ahead now with all these possibilites,ho hum,thanks folks
My Grandmother was Mary Ellen, but she was known as Nell.
Christine in Herts
I think that there are a few pet/nick-names created by inverting the name, or re-ordering it.
Ellen / Eleanor / Helen = Nellie (but that can also be an abbreviation of Petronella, as I recall, suddenly!)
Nan = Ann
