I used to feel the exact same way, but I’ve become more lenient now. In most cases I still think it makes way more sense to put a name you’ll actually use on the birth certificate. And it seems I’m open to a wider range of nicknames as full names, potentially because they’re quite common where I live.
However, I definitely don’t mind nicknames arising organically over time, and I love coming up with nickname options! It’s like getting even more great names from one choice! Okay, it might be a stretch or never happen, but I find it fun. [name_f]My[/name_f] mum’s a big nicknamer, and I realised I’m the same haha. She still uses my full name a lot, but also plenty of nns and pet names. [name_f]Imo[/name_f] it’s a nice balance, and a way of getting even more great names from a full name you love.
TL; DR- Organic nicknames and stretching some creativity coming up with them; yep! Putting a name on the bc you maybe don’t even like with the sole intention of never using it? In most cases, I don’t get it. But each to their own of course!
