Baby Name To Consider: Mozelle

Baby Name To Consider: Mozelle | Name News | Scoop.it
I guess I’m just wanting a reaction to that name from someone I don’t know. Too weird? Too old? Too unusual? What’s the point if we’re just going to call her Moz all the time?

Must the Nickname Match the Given Name? | Ask The Name Lady

Normally I'm against the idea of calling a child by a name other than what you actually named her, but I'm wondering if it's socially acceptable to do it. My husband and I have agreed on a particular name for a few years, but this whole pregnancy I've been referring to the baby as "Daisy." Would it be totally off the mark to give the baby a first and middle name that in no way relate to Daisy, but still call her that?
