Give it a convoluted nickname!

[name_u]Christian[/name_u] immediately makes me think of the religion, Christianity. Another religion is [name_m]Islam[/name_m]. [name_m]Islam[/name_m] is similar to the name Aslam, which is similar to [name_m]Aslan[/name_m]. [name_m]Aslan[/name_m] is the name of the lion in the series Chronicles of [name_f]Narnia[/name_f]. The Latin word lion is leo. Therefore, Christian’s nickname is [name_u]Leo[/name_u].


[name_m]Harvey[/name_m] reminds me of [name_m]Steve[/name_m] [name_m]Harvey[/name_m], host of Family Feud. The original host of that show was [name_m]Richard[/name_m] [name_u]Dawson[/name_u], born [name_m]Colin[/name_m] [name_u]Lionel[/name_u] Emm. [name_m]Colin[/name_m] [name_u]Lionel[/name_u] Emm’s initials are Cle, which reminds me of Clé [name_u]Bennett[/name_u], Canadian actor and voice actor. [name_u]Bennett[/name_u] is related to the medieval name [name_m]Benedict[/name_m]. Many popes of the past are named [name_m]Benedict[/name_m] and the current Vatican pope is named [name_u]Francis[/name_u] but born [name_m]Jorge[/name_m] [name_m]Mario[/name_m] Bergoglio. Pope [name_u]Francis[/name_u] was actually born in [name_f]Argentina[/name_f], same with [name_f]Queen[/name_f] Máxima of the Netherlands. [name_f]Queen[/name_f] Máxima is married to [name_m]King[/name_m] Willem-Alexander. Willem-Alexander’s father was [name_u]Prince[/name_u] [name_m]Claus[/name_m]. [name_m]Claus[/name_m] is also the last name of [name_f]Santa[/name_f] [name_m]Claus[/name_m]. Harvey’s nickname is [name_f]Santa[/name_f]!


A common nickname for [name_u]Finnegan[/name_u] is [name_u]Finn[/name_u], which makes me think of fish. A popular movie about fish is Finding [name_m]Nemo[/name_m]. [name_m]Nemo[/name_m] is also a character in Dicken’s Bleak House as an alias for [name_m]Captain[/name_m] [name_u]James[/name_u] Hawdon. A nickname for [name_u]James[/name_u] is [name_u]Jamie[/name_u], so Finnegan’s nickname is [name_u]Jamie[/name_u].


[name_f]Eloise[/name_f] reminds me of Nameberry user @eloiseattheplaza , the username referring to a young 6-year-old blonde girl who lives at the Plaza with [name_f]Nanny[/name_f]. Nannies are sometimes called [name_f]Nan[/name_f], which can be a nickname for [name_f]Nanette[/name_f]. [name_f]Nanette[/name_f] rhymes with [name_f]Annette[/name_f], a very feminised [name_u]French[/name_u] form of [name_f]Ann[/name_f]. [name_f]Ann[/name_f] was actually an [name_f]English[/name_f] form of the name [name_f]Hannah[/name_f] which means grace. [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] goes by the nickname [name_f]Grace[/name_f].
