Which name do you like best? Which nickname? What are your thoughts on each one? Thank you!

[name]Joseph[/name] [name]Edwin[/name] nn [name]Jesse[/name]
[name]Joseph[/name] [name]Edwin[/name] nn [name]Jed[/name]
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Andrew[/name] nn [name]Hank[/name]
[name]Charles[/name] [name]Edwin[/name] nn [name]Cal[/name]
[name]Alexander[/name] [name]Edwin[/name] nn [name]Lex[/name]

[name]Charles[/name] [name]Edwin[/name] “[name]Cal[/name]” is amazing. [name]Charles[/name] is such a handsome serious grown up name while [name]Cal[/name] is laid back and cool. My second favorite is [name]Joseph[/name] [name]Edwin[/name] “[name]Jed[/name]”, as [name]Julian[/name] [name]Edgar[/name] “[name]Jed[/name]” is one of my personal favorites.

[name]Joseph[/name] [name]Edwin[/name] nn [name]Jesse[/name] - I like this.
[name]Joseph[/name] [name]Edwin[/name] nn [name]Jed[/name] - I don’t like [name]Jed[/name] at all. I immediately think “[name]Jed[/name] Clampett” from the [name]Beverly[/name] Hillbillies.
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Andrew[/name] nn [name]Hank[/name] - Not a fan of [name]Hank[/name], but I do like [name]Henry[/name].
[name]Charles[/name] [name]Edwin[/name] nn [name]Cal[/name] - [name]Love[/name].
[name]Alexander[/name] [name]Edwin[/name] nn [name]Lex[/name] - [name]Love[/name].

[name]Charles[/name] ([name]Cal[/name]) and [name]Alexander[/name] ([name]Lex[/name]) are my favorites, and [name]Henry[/name] would be there too if it wasn’t for the nn [name]Hank[/name]. :slight_smile:

I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Charles[/name] nn [name]Cal[/name], and [name]Joseph[/name] nn [name]Jed[/name]!

[name]Charles[/name] nn [name]Cal[/name]! Unusual and clever. [name]Cal[/name] is amazing. What do you think about [name]Charles[/name] [name]ALexander[/name], in order to “validate” the nickname?
