Gender: M Meaning of Hawthorne: "lives where hawthorn hedges grow" Origin of Hawthorne: English

The great American novelist sets this above many other surnames (and nature names, for that matter), but it's still an imposing and adventurous choice. Do nicknames Hawk or Thorne make it more approachable? The timid should stick with Nathaniel.
