Nickname Help

I like the name [name]Gideon[/name], and would like some ideas of what a nn might be

thanks for your help

I have a cousin named [name]Gideon[/name] who is primarily called Gid. [name]Don[/name]'t care for it & don’t think it was intentional, but it seems natural in context.

Well if you go for Gid I’d prefer [name]Eon[/name]. But I think [name]Don[/name] or [name]Dean[/name] could work.

Well, there is always G-money… (I am so kidding)… [name]Dean[/name] is a cool suggestion. Maybe [name]Dino[/name] (prn [name]Dee[/name]-no), [name]Deon[/name] or [name]Geo[/name]. good luck!

My point was, a [name]Gideon[/name] might get stuck with an unwanted nn because people seem to resort to Gid naturally. I wasn’t suggesting Gid as a nn.

My nephew gets called Gid or [name]Gideon[/name]. My thoughts–why waste such a stellar name by using a nickname? I don’t get it.

I can imagine a [name]Gideon[/name] would get called Gid/Giddy but I don’t see why he would need a nickname when the name [name]Gideon[/name] is so cool!

I think the coolest nickname would have to be [name]Deon[/name]. Although I’d probably stick to the full [name]Gideon[/name].

When I has [name]Gideon[/name] on my list, I was going with Giddy. I think its cute, but more of a sweet pet name, really. [name]Dion[/name] works also.
