nm help

hi, I like the name [name]Gregory[/name] for a boy, i also like [name]Rory[/name], could [name]Rory[/name] be a nickname/shortening for [name]Gregory[/name]? The end of [name]Gregory[/name] sounds like [name]Rory[/name] but I want to know what other people think and whether it could work!
I dont want people thinking ‘[name]How[/name] is [name]Rory[/name] sound like a nickname/shortening for [name]Gregory[/name]’? My mum thinks it sounds good ( probably as she is not keen on [name]Greg[/name]).

I never would have thought as [name]Rory[/name] as a nn for [name]Gregory[/name] but, yes, I think it works. If you said to me “His name is [name]Gregory[/name] but we call him [name]Rory[/name]” I wouldn’t think twice about it. I think it’s really, really cute/handsome!


I agree with [name]Tara[/name], I think [name]Rory[/name] is a cute nn for [name]Gregory[/name].

I agree–[name]Rory[/name] is a good nickname for [name]Gregory[/name].

Very innovative. Might take quick explanation for a while, but easy.

A great way to combine classic and unique

I think [name]Rory[/name] as a nickname for [name]Gregory[/name] works quite well. Then again some may say my nickname logic is a tad questionable :wink:

But the way I see it is: If you take [name]Gregory[/name] and nix G,E,G you get [name]Rory[/name], therefore making it a perfectly acceptable nickname.

[name]Hope[/name] that helps!

im glad most people seem to think its ok, i dont want to look silly if i so do use nm [name]Rory[/name] for [name]Gregory[/name] nor my son thinking it odd.

I [name]LOVE[/name] the name [name]Rory[/name] and so I love it as a nickname for [name]Gregory[/name]

Oooh! I think that [name]Rory[/name] as a nickname for [name]Gregory[/name] is a wonderful idea! :slight_smile:

Good luck!
