[name]William[/name] -[name]Will[/name]
[name]James[/name] -[name]Jamie[/name]
[name]Benjamin[/name] -[name]Ben[/name]
[name]Alexander[/name] -[name]Alex[/name]

Others closely behind:
[name]Patrick[/name] (don’t really like [name]Pat[/name]…)

What do you think? Any others? [name]Christopher[/name], [name]David[/name], [name]Nicholas[/name] and [name]Andrew[/name] are out, I love [name]Gabe[/name] but not [name]Gabriel[/name]… We like the idea of having a formal name and every-day nick name. You can also see we like classic names. DH is [name]Jeffrey[/name]-[name]Jeff[/name].


[name]William[/name] -[name]Will[/name] - Classic
[name]James[/name] -[name]Jamie[/name] - [name]Adore[/name] [name]James[/name], don’t love [name]Jamie[/name] though. [name]Do[/name] you like [name]Jem[/name]?
[name]Benjamin[/name] -[name]Ben[/name] - [name]Ben[/name] is one of the nicest nicknames ever, I think.
[name]Alexander[/name] -[name]Alex[/name] - I love [name]Alex[/name], but it would be my last pick.

Others closely behind:
[name]Nathan[/name] - [name]Love[/name] so much
[name]Matthew[/name] - Like
[name]Joshua[/name] - This is the only one on your list that I don’t think is fantastic. Feels really dated to me.
[name]Patrick[/name] - for what it’s worth, I’ve known a lot of Patricks and none have gone by [name]Pat[/name].

I’m sure you’ve already thought of these:
[name]Zachary[/name] nn [name]Zach[/name]
[name]Daniel[/name] nn [name]Dan[/name]
[name]Peter[/name] nn [name]Pete[/name]

[name]John[/name] nn [name]Jack[/name]
[name]Frederick[/name] nn [name]Fred[/name]
[name]Thomas[/name] nn [name]Tom[/name]

Your list is fantastic, you can’t possibly pick a bad name! It is hard to even comment because all the names are so nice!

[name]Joshua[/name]: I think it’s a nice Biblical name…
[name]Patrick[/name] (don’t really like [name]Pat[/name]…): I think it’s handsome…You could always use it in the middle to avoid any potential [name]Pat[/name] nicknames.

I really love your list! [name]William[/name], [name]James[/name], and [name]Benjamin[/name] are my favorites. :slight_smile:
