Full name for "Getty"
I'm not sure where he got it, but my husband has long loved the name Getty for a son. The poor guy ended up with me, though, so before he can live out that particular fantasy I need to know if there are proper, full name, options that could be nicknamed Getty. You all are about 150% more qualified to find that than I am; as far as I got was, well, it kind of sounds like Geoffrey, or Gretchen, which would be unfortunate on a boy.
Any ideas? I don't mind if they're a little far-fetched, it's all worth looking at.
The first one that comes to mind is Garrett or Gareth. Maybe Grant or Gilette?
For a stretch-
I'll update if I think of any more.
I like Gilbert (though I prefer the nickname Gill), but if we ever used it our families would laugh us out of town. I'll ask him about Gerhardt because that seems sort of old-fashioned, but surname-trendy enough to not be a jokey name (*Well, it's still pretty jokey)...
Okay I really like Getty!
There's always Gettsyburg ;)
And for his sister - Address! Little Getty and Addy.
