I’ve seen several posts about how parents don’t want a name that has a nickname. I love being called by a nn, and not because I don’t like my name. I think nicknames are important in social relationships. They show closeness and intimacy, for example.
Also nns are handy if the child doesn’t like his or her name. For example we had the blog post about a [name]Margaret[/name] who loves her nn [name]Greta[/name]. While you may love the name you picked, the child may not. Finally, they allow for a name that fits a cute little girl or boy and a formal name for business.
So what do you think?
