Unshortenable names

Looking for names that aren’t usually shortened/nicknamed (as parents with long names who have never, ever been referred to with them!). Surname is Smedley, so names ending in -y don’t tend to work. Sibling to [name_f]Edith[/name_f] :smiley: would love some help any ideas!

Like [name_u]Finn[/name_u], [name_u]Jude[/name_u] for boys but they have become so popular… Like [name_f]Iris[/name_f] and [name_f]Neve[/name_f] for girls maybe…

Most of the names I love can’t be shortened!

Not all of these are 100% nickname proof but they are for the most part; any that could be shortened generally aren’t in my experience.
