    Ohhh, I LOVE boyish nicknames for girls!

    My favorite choice would have to be Coriander. It's unusual, but pretty, and the nickname could be either Cori/Cory or Andy, both of which are so cute on a little girl!

    Other ideas:

    Alexandra/Alexandria/Alexis/Alexa --> Alex/Al*

    Alonna/Alana --> Lonnie

    Andrea --> Andy*

    Antonia --> Toni

    Ashley --> Ash/Lee

    Augustina/Augustine --> August/Oggie/Gus

    Benita/Benicia/Benjamina --> Benny/Ben

    Bernice/Bernadette --> Bernie

    Berta/Bertha --> Bertie/Bert

    Callista/Calla/Callie --> Cal

    Charlotte --> Charlie*

    Christine/Christina --> Chris

    Clementine --> Clem*

    Danielle/Daniella/Danica --> Danny/Dan

    Desiree --> Desi/Ray

    Dominique --> Dom

    Elaine/Laney --> Lane

    Elena/Lena --> Lenny

    Eden/Edwina --> Ed, Eddie

    Evanthe --> Evan

    Filomena/Ophelia/Phyllis --> Phil

    Francis/Francine --> Frankie/Frank

    Gabriella --> Gabe

    Geraldine --> Geri/Jerry

    Georgette/Georgia --> Georgie/George

    Giana --> Gianni (pron. like Johnny)/Gian (pron. like John)

    Harriet --> Harry

    Henrietta --> Henry/Hank

    Isabella/Isabelle --> Izzy

    Jessica --> Jesse/Jessie

    Judith --> Jude

    Julia/Julie --> Jules

    Jacqueline --> Jackie/Jack

    Johnette --> John/Johnny

    Josephine/Joscel/Josette --> Jo/Joey/Jo-Jo*

    Kennedy/Kenley --> Kenny/Ken/Eddie/Ed

    Kylie --> Kyle

    Lauren/Laura/Lara --> Larry

    Leela --> Lee

    Louisa/Lucy --> Louie/Lou

    Mackenzie/Mackenna --> Mack/Max/Kenny/Ken

    Madison --> Maddy/Maddie

    Matilda --> Mattie/Matt

    Maurine --> Moe

    Maxine --> Max/Mack

    Melanie/Melissa --> Mel

    Michelle --> Mick/Mickey/Mike/Mikey

    Miley --> Miles/Milo

    Natalie/Natalia --> Nat/Nate

    Nicole --> Nick/Nicky

    Olivia/Olive --> Ollie*

    Patricia/Patrice --> Pat/Patty

    Raven --> Ray

    Rebecca --> Beck

    Rhianna --> Ryan/Andy

    Roberta --> Bobby/Bob/Robbie/Rob/Robert

    Sally --> Sal

    Samantha --> Sam/Sammie

    Sidney --> Sid

    Stephanie --> Stevie/Steve/Stephan

    Theodora --> Teddy/Ted/Theo

    Thomasina --> Tommy/Tom/Thomas

    Tigerlily --> Tiger (Lily could also be a nickname)*

    Victoria --> Vick/Victor

    Vincenza --> Vinny

    Willow/Willa/Wilma/Wilhelmina --> Will/Willy/Bill/Billy

    *The asterisks represent my favorite nicknames of the bunch: Alex, Andy, Clem, Charlie, Joey, Ollie, Tiger (or Lily, if she's feeling girly).

    Also keep in mind that there are lots of great unisex names (Riley, Jamie, Taylor, etc.), and some boy names that would work for girls (Ryan, Cody, etc.). There are also lots of names that work the opposite way than what you're asking: cool masculine names that could have cute feminine nicknames (James --> Jamie, Anderson --> Andy, Lucian --> Lucy, etc.). Just something to think about!

    Good luck!

    hope these help!
