Does Rex work as nn for Reginald?

I’ve started to [name]LOVE[/name] the name [name]Rex[/name] but it seems like it should be a nickname for a longer name. I know [name]Rex[/name] [name]Harrison[/name] was originally named [name]Reginald[/name], but I don’t know if [name]Rex[/name] is ‘actually’ a nickname for [name]Reginald[/name] if you know what I mean. Does it work for [name]Reginald[/name] or do you know any other possible full names for it? Thank you! :slight_smile:

I think it absolutely works as a nickname for [name]Reginald[/name]. They also both have “kingly” Latin roots.

I think it works. They both start with the “reh” sound. I would definitely prefer [name]Rex[/name] over [name]Reg[/name] or [name]Reggie[/name].
