    Too Many Ts?

    I've loved the name Wyatt for YEARS, and I got super excited when my DBF mentioned (out of no where) that he liked the name too. The problem is, I'd written it off years ago when we first started...

    It's hard for me to believe that people are hating on Piper for being trendy, yet pushing Penelope and Pippa…to me, the latter two names are SO much more trendy than the former (thanks to the...

    I saw on another website Tuck as a possible nn. I feel like that might be a good option if people start insist on shortening it. Thank you guys for all the input!

    Thank you all for the wonderful feedback! I would ideally like to name her Filomena with the nn Fia - that's the spelling my little old Italian grandmother uses, so I'd like to stick to it, even if...

    I also prefer Dexter to Declan...and I love the nn Dex. Nora and Dexter seems like a cute sibset!

    I don't think the association with the show is automatic...if Dexter were a name that had been...

    Does Atticus need a NN?

    I love the name Atticus for a boy - it's absolutely inspired by To Kill a Mockingbird, and it has significance to my classics-obsessed DBF as well. My cousin recently had a baby girl, which has led...

    This. Winnie is an adorable nn! I think Wynne is one of those names that isn't conventional, but it's not weird enough that people wonder "whoa, what were her parents thinking??" I like it a lot!

    I've actually been mulling this over myself lately, so I'm interested to see how the poll turns out. I like it a lot, but worry it's too out-there.

    Well, my middle name is Marie (it's a family name, but it's also super generic!) so maybe I shouldn't comment...haha. But I don't think it's cheesy at all! Faith and Hope have really lovely...

    NN for Filomena

    I've posted before (a while ago) about my desire to name a future daughter Filomena, after my grandmother. I always wonder about a NN, though...Mena is the most intuitive, but I just don't love it. I...

    To be perfectly honest, it sounds like you couldn't decide between Belle or Phoebe and decided to just mash the two together. I've never heard of this name before, and it sounds kind of made up. I...

    I absolutely adore the name Atticus, so I've had this same concern. Honestly, even if it gets to the top 100, I don't see it getting much more popular than that. I don't think it has the sort of...

    I really like Mitchell, along with the nn Mitch. I had it on my list for a while, but took it off ONLY because my DBF's last name has three Ms in it, and that's a little too alliterative for my taste!

    Call me the odd one out, but I don't really like it...it almost sounds a little made up to me. I prefer just Jessa instead.
