Nicknames for Magnolia

Most of the time we plan on calling her Maggie. Sometimes I call her Mags. But one of the things we love about Magnolia's name is its nickname versatility. Here are some potentials. Which do you like best? Can you think of any others?

Magnolia
Maggie
Mags
Mia
Lia (Leah)
Nolia
Nolie
Nola

and my favorite, especially if she decides to be a super hero or crime-fighter: Magno.

We call her Munchkin (and Munchie) too but that doesn't have much to do with her given name besides the alliteration.

Also, I figure we better be prepared for anything the grade school bullies might throw her way, so can you think of any other taunts besides these:

Maggot
Saggy Maggie

How bout, "Mrs. Durias"

Oh and I like "Magno" with a twist, maybe Mango?

you forgot "agnol" you can use the first part of the name, last part, but don't forget the middle.

Kids will come up with anything, I have no idea..

Maybe the creative bullies will call her mag-o-reah. Like diarreah. Or maybe robo-mags. Or Mag-ro-ham Lincoln. I will never call her these names, however, because I'm nice!!!

Grandma Rush says: Just for the records, I prefer Nola for a nickname. Somehow, it sounds prettier than the "agg" sound and in my mind has nicer connotations.

Lia!!!

and for a taunt: I feel correlations between Magnolia and many of the characters in the movie Magnolia may not be received well... still love that movie, and even more little Lia's name.
