I’m not a big fan of nicknames. My kids are named [name]Jack[/name] and [name]Claire[/name]. We are pregnant with a baby girl and I’m looking for ideas.
Here’s a little background… My husband and I grew up together. His name is [name]Philip[/name] and his mother would literally yell at anyone she heard call him [name]Phil[/name]. I don’t know how many times I heard her say, “I didn’t name him [name]Philip[/name] for you to call him [name]Phil[/name]!!”. I do NOT want to be that mom. (It’s funny that now, as an adult, he almost exclusively goes by [name]Phil[/name])
I love [name]Ivy[/name] and [name]Anna[/name] but we can’t use [name]Anna[/name].
I’ve had good feedback on [name]Ivy[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] so it is definitely on our list but so far it is the only one.
I need some suggestions!
