Ideas with Emmanuel

I have been thinking a lot about the name [name]Emmanuel[/name], but as I have stated before, I hate the nickname [name]Manny[/name]. The question is, should I keep trying to find a better nickname, or would it be better to put it in the middle? Probably my all-time favorite name combo for a boy is [name]Schuyler[/name] [name]Emmanuel[/name], with the nickname of [name]Leo[/name], but nobody close to the baby would ever be able to spell or pronounce it right, and I do not like it spelled [name]Skyler[/name] on a boy.

For girl names, I like frilly and sweet; underused and rarely heard of, but pronounceable and spelled correctly (although I do prefer [name]Mysti[/name] to [name]Misty[/name] for the nickname). My taste in boy names, on the other hand, tends to run close to my taste in guys: quietly strong with a healthy dose of quirkiness but not so quirky as to cause embarrassment. Any help would be appreciated.

I prefer the original spelling [name]Schuyler[/name] as well. [name]Skyler[/name] and [name]Skylar[/name] just look like they’re made up to help with the correct pronunciation. [name]Emmanuel[/name] is a rare gem. [name]Schuyler[/name] [name]Emmanuel[/name] has a Dutch surname paired with a Hebrew Biblical name. Although it sounds ok, it would not be my first choice for [name]Emmanuel[/name].

Thanks for the advice. I have my girl name picked already. That isn’t changing, but some of these might work if I need a sister name to go with it. For the boy names, nothing is really jumping out at me at the moment.

First of all I love [name]Emmanuel[/name]! So handsome and underused. I also can’t stand the nn [name]Manny[/name] and it’s rather difficult to find a good nn for [name]Emmanuel[/name]. Okay, so some quirky but not weird names to go with [name]Emmanuel[/name].

Wow, great list!

My favorites are [name]Dante[/name] [name]Emmanuel[/name] and [name]Emmanuel[/name] [name]Heath[/name], but nearly all of your suggestions are names I would actually consider. The only one that would be out for me is [name]Harvey[/name] since it is the name of my last ex. I really, really like [name]Dante[/name]!
