I don't like Effy at all. It's not very feminine or pretty. Genevieve is too pretty to use a nickname, in my opinion. But as far as whether or not it's a VALID nickname for Genevieve, I'm not sure. It's hard for me to judge, cause I had an uncle named Thomas who everyone called Timmy :) But at the same time that's just a nickname, not necessarily a nickname that's connected to the given name. And I don't think nicknames MUST be pertaining to the given name. So I guess it could be a nickname, sure, but I don't think it sounds like it is derived from Genevieve.
BQ1 - I would have LOVED to take a baby name course at my school, and I think I would have done awesome at it. I started buying baby name books in high school just cause I've always been fascinated, so this would have been one of my favorite classes, I'm sure. But knowing the teachers at our school system they'd never offer this at school because they'd see it as encouraging teens towards pregnancy.
BQ2 - I would probably go with the names Freesia Lark, Oaklee Winter and Echo River. All of these names are pretty, and I think they flow together well too, because Freesia shares the "ee" sound with Oaklee, and Oaklee shares the "o" sound with Echo.
BQ3 - I'm not sure what to say here cause I don't really think I have a favorite word.
