Most baby namers have strong feelings about nicknames–pro or con– liking them on their own, liking them as short/pet forms, or wanting to avoid them altogether.
The question of the week is: Where do you stand on nicknames?
- Would you put a nickname name like Gracie or Charlie on your child’s birth certificate??
- Would you choose a name as a path to a nickname you like?
- Would you avoid a name because you don’t like its obvious nickname?
- Would you insist (or try to) on your child always being called by his full name?
