    A nickname is never really inevitable, but what you have to remember is that after the first early years, it's not your decision. Not even a little bit. The name is a gift from you to a child. After...

    One of the names we are considering for a girl is Elísabet. I kind of don't want to put a middle name with it. Do you think this would be a mistake, or something I would regret? My reasons are:

    The only one I would cross off is Isabella Elizabeth. That is just two different versions of the same name, so it sounds a bit silly.

    I think it's a little try-hard and a lot of name to live up to, but if you like it it's not unusable. It reminds me of the character in the Gormenghast books, who is pretty awesome it has to be said.

    No, no, a thousand times no. There is nothing particularly wrong with using a B first name and a J middle name, but on no condition should you call him Bj. I know kids will make fun of anything, but...
