We are expecting our second son this summer. Our first son is named [name_m]Desmond[/name_m] and we use his nickname [name_m]Des[/name_m] probably about just as much as we use his full name.
I like the name [name_m]Harris[/name_m] and think that the one syllable nickname [name_u]Hayes[/name_u] would be a nice complement to Desmond/Des.
[name_f]My[/name_f] husband says that [name_u]Hayes[/name_u] is not a nickname for [name_m]Harris[/name_m] … but who says it can’t be? I also like [name_u]Hayes[/name_u] as a name on its own, but my husband isn’t sure.
