Naming our son and a funny 80

But my husband’s name is [name]Clifton[/name] and he generally goes by [name]Cliff[/name]. Which means that we’ll have a big Cosby show reference with [name]Cliff[/name] and [name]Theo[/name]. Can we do that or will we never live it down? We would likely go with [name]Theodore[/name] for a full first name and call him [name]Theo[/name].
