Short or Long Names?

[name_f]Do[/name_f] you prefer short names or long names that can be nicknamed? I have two different lists of names–one is names without nicknames and one is names with intended nicknames. I would love feedback on both lists and all sets of names. Also, you can mix and match middles and firsts, but middles can’t be used as firsts. Please let me know what you think of all these names!

Short
[name_u]Leo[/name_u] [name_m]Gideon[/name_m]
[name_u]Henry[/name_u] [name_u]Julian[/name_u]
[name_u]Jonah[/name_u] [name_u]Maxwell[/name_u]
[name_u]Kieran[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m]
[name_m]Harrison[/name_m] [name_u]Ezra[/name_u]
[name_u]Dylan[/name_u] [name_u]Everett[/name_u]
[name_m]Niles[/name_m] [name_m]Matthew[/name_m]
[name_m]Malcolm[/name_m] [name_m]Lewis[/name_m]

[name_m]Long[/name_m]
[name_u]Leander[/name_u] [name_u]Henry[/name_u] “Leo”
[name_m]Benedict[/name_m] [name_m]Graham[/name_m] “Ben”
[name_u]Julian[/name_u] [name_u]Arthur[/name_u] “Jules”
[name_u]August[/name_u] [name_u]Kieran[/name_u] “Auggie”
[name_m]Sebastian[/name_m] [name_u]George[/name_u] “Seb”
[name_m]Rafael[/name_m] [name_u]John[/name_u] “Raf”
[name_m]Cassian[/name_m] [name_u]Ezra[/name_u] “Cas”
[name_m]Desmond[/name_m] [name_m]Grant[/name_m] “Des”

Personally, I tend to like longer names that can be nicknamed. I think because I have a short name and always wished I could have a nickname like other people around me.

From your lists, I really like [name_u]Leo[/name_u] [name_m]Gideon[/name_m]. [name_u]Henry[/name_u] [name_u]Julian[/name_u], [name_u]Kieran[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m], [name_u]Leander[/name_u] [name_u]Henry[/name_u], [name_u]August[/name_u] [name_u]Kieran[/name_u], [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m] [name_u]George[/name_u], and [name_m]Cassian[/name_m] [name_u]Ezra[/name_u].

Some suggestions from mixing and matching…
[name_u]Henry[/name_u] [name_u]Maxwell[/name_u]
[name_m]Harrison[/name_m] [name_m]Lewis[/name_m]
[name_u]Leo[/name_u] [name_u]Ezra[/name_u]
[name_u]Jonah[/name_u] [name_u]Everett[/name_u]
[name_m]Benedict[/name_m] [name_u]George[/name_u]
[name_m]Sebastian[/name_m] [name_m]Grant[/name_m]
[name_m]Desmond[/name_m] [name_u]Arthur[/name_u]

Leo Gideon - charming and rugged
Henry Julian -love this!! Two of my favourites
Jonah Maxwell -beautiful, charming and gentle
Kieran Alexander - not a big fan of this. It’s a bit harsh and meh for me but it flows well and is cohesive
Harrison Ezra - quite nice and solid. [name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_u]Ezra[/name_u].
Dylan Everett - cute and handsome with an ocean vibe
Niles Matthew -pretty cool! I like [name_m]Niles[/name_m]
Malcolm Lewis - quite a solid choice

Leander Henry “Leo” - oh I adore [name_u]Leander[/name_u] [name_u]Henry[/name_u]. [name_f]Beautiful[/name_f] and bright!
Benedict Graham “Ben” - I find it a bit clunky, sorry
Julian Arthur “Jules” -beautiful and charming
August Kieran “Auggie” -love [name_u]August[/name_u], not so much [name_u]Kieran[/name_u]. [name_u]August[/name_u] [name_u]Julian[/name_u] or [name_u]August[/name_u] [name_m]Graham[/name_m] would be great!!
Sebastian George “Seb” -lovely and dashing
Rafael John “Raf” -I love [name_m]Rafael[/name_m] nn Raf!! This flows well! [name_m]Rafael[/name_m] [name_u]George[/name_u] is nice too
Cassian Ezra “Cas” - love it! Cool and fresh
Desmond Grant “Des” -pretty handsome and rugged.

I think I like slightly more of the longer names but honestly, I really like both lists
