Nicknames For Rhett
I managed to sell the name Rhett Maverick to my husband which I'm pretty excited about. I wasn't really too sure about Rhett at first, it just reminds me of a guy in his 40s, not quite vintage but not new either. But paired with Maverick I think it is just really fresh and cute! But I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for nns for Rhett Maverick that lightens up the name Rhett a little. Thanks! :)
I know this is a tough one :)
I'm not sure what kind of nickname you'll find in 1 syllable name that is basically an isolate.
I think a nickname you'd get from Rhett would be organic- you'd just have to let it happen. My brother, Brett, has a nickname and it's related to his name, but it isn't anything you could have dreamed up before it actually happened.
Maybe there's a way to combine Rhett and Maverick? Rick? Tav? What about Everett Maverick "Rhett" instead?
I agree that it's tough to come up with a nickname for a 1 syllable name. Maybe using a different middle you could have R.J. or something, but Rhett just doesn't lend itself to anything. I do really like Rhett Maverick, though.
Rhetoric? Haha. Sorry, but Rhett is such a short name I think if you want something lighter you should wait until you meet him & choose a nickname that's more based on personality & appearance cause I can't think of any variation of Rhett Maverick. Maybe Rev?
I like Rev! Very cute! Rhett is a tough one. I think a nn for Rhett will just have to develop once you meet him. My DS is Bram (also essentially nickname-less) but we call him Brammie, Brammer, Bam Bam, B.B. and Brammie Muffin (this one I'm sure he will love when he is older). These nicknames were not pre planned or anything. I'm sure the same thing will happen with Rhett.
Love Rhett btw. It's one of my top choices for a future boy.
This can become challenging.
Personally, I have thought of Rhett, as a nickname for, Everett. Even though it is a stand alone name.
Maybe you can call him Rev, as a pp suggested. ReM is another possibility.
You can scramble the letters in his name to get a nickname:
Or you can just let a nickname come naturally. How I call my nieces:
One I occasionally call, Gizmo. It has absolutely nothing to do with her name.
Another one I call ***Pie. Which takes part of her first name with the added word, pie.
Another goes by the nickname of her middle name.
Another goes by the name she was honored for.
Another goes by the mispronunciation (caused by a close family member when they were younger) of her original letter nickname. i.e. (If her original nickname was E.J. -- I will call her E.Bae)
Another goes by something I just put together--mostly in reference to her cheeks. Chun.ky.Cho.co.late.Chip.Munk. or just Chip.munk.
