How would you use a three-letter name?

If you had to choose a three-letter name to use for a son or daughter, paired with a longer (preferably 7- to 10-letter) name, what would you choose? One for a son and one for a daughter.

Examples:

Léa [name_f]Marguerite[/name_f] & [name_u]Gabriel[/name_u] [name_u]Max[/name_u]
[name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Ann[/name_f] & [name_m]Luc[/name_m] [name_m]Nathanael[/name_m]
[name_f]Zoe[/name_f] [name_f]Cecilia[/name_f] & [name_u]Asa[/name_u] [name_u]Benjamin[/name_u]

It depends on the name itself, for me.

Girl:
[name_f]Bea[/name_f] [name_f]Clarimond[/name_f]

Boy:
[name_m]Anthony[/name_m] [name_u]Sol[/name_u]

I like a few 3 lettered names! Because I’m indecisive there are more than two combos but still.

Ptolemy [name_m]Xil[/name_m] ([name_m]Xil[/name_m] is pron. zeel)
Koh [name_u]Atlantis[/name_u]
[name_u]Poe[/name_u] [name_m]Maximilliano[/name_m]

Luminara [name_f]Bellerose[/name_f] [name_f]Eve[/name_f]
[name_f]Phillipa[/name_f] [name_u]Wilder[/name_u] [name_u]Nyx[/name_u]
[name_f]Zatanna[/name_f] Ibelis [name_u]Rio[/name_u]

([name_f]Do[/name_f] double middles count? The girls are all names in my UC cause those have my fav 3 lettered names for girls)

Leo [name_u]Everett[/name_u] …
Kol [name_u]Jameson[/name_u] …
[name_u]Max[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m] …

Ava [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] …
[name_f]Penelope[/name_f] [name_u]Rae[/name_u] …

Max [name_f]Clementine[/name_f] & [name_u]Kit[/name_u] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]

Or maybe [name_u]Kaj[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m]. I do love me some [name_u]Kaj[/name_u]. Oops for forgetting!

[name_f]My[/name_f] son is [name_u]Kit[/name_u] [name_u]Valentine[/name_u] :heart: I also love Ivo and Tor for a boy, maybe with middle name Maximilian.

And [name_u]Sol[/name_u] and [name_f]Mab[/name_f] are probably my favourite 3-letter names for a girl, so [name_u]Sol[/name_u] [name_f]Guinevere[/name_f] or [name_f]Mab[/name_f] [name_f]Guinevere[/name_f].

Bea & [name_m]Kip[/name_m] for sure!! Short firsts with long middles are totally my style. I’m not sure of a [name_m]Kip[/name_m] combo yet, but today they’d be [name_f]Bea[/name_f] [name_f]Gwendolen[/name_f] and [name_m]Kip[/name_m] [name_f]Reverie[/name_f]!

Of other 3-letter-names, I also like [name_u]Noa[/name_u], [name_f]Ada[/name_f], and [name_f]Zoe[/name_f] for girls, and [name_m]Zev[/name_m] for boys, though I couldn’t use the later two. Plus I like [name_u]Kit[/name_u] for both boys and girls.

Rex [name_m]Maximilian[/name_m]

Noa [name_f]Clementine[/name_f]

Girl - [name_u]Max[/name_u] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]
Boy - [name_m]Cas[/name_m] [name_m]Ambrose[/name_m]
