I always consider a nickname that you'd never use to introduce yourself as more of a pet name, and a nickname that you'd go by on a daily basis as a nickname.
So Victoria, Eleanor and Alexander...

No kids, but I help out with a guide unit (believe US folks call it girl scouts) and we've doubled up on Mia and Rachel and tripled up on Charlotte. That's out of 15 girls aged 10-12. Yeah, it gets...
Like that, Seh-LEEN, but if it's got the accent above the middle E then I'd say it as Seh-LEHN.
I've always had a soft spot for Warren, it's cute on a boy and handsome on a man. Wallace is a bit too old-fashioned for my tastes, and the nn Wally isn't exactly endearing (it might be a regional...
Glad to see some other Martha and Richard fans on here - they're my favourites at the moment.
Wednesday's episode was so dramatic. Working in the media industry, I know how things can get edited...

Yeah, maybe I didn't make that clear - it's the idea she said seemed a bit tacky, not the names themselves.

I was chatting to a colleague the other day who's expecting a little girl in mid-December. Her husband thinks it would be cute to use a Christmas themed name - Holly, Eve, Ivy, Belle were all ones...

Emma, Lily (Jack, Charlie, Finn) and:
Traditional names with alternate spellings? Hmm...
Claw-de-uh for me too. I've also heard Cloud-ee-uh, but I'm not a fan of that pronunciation at all.

Juno - female
Kieran - male, but I've come across female Kirans, so in that spelling I'd be unsure.
Rory - male
Carson - male
Rowan - could equally picture this on either
Elliott - male ...
I'd also add that places that are meaningful to you can be a good source of a penname. If you love London, how about using James Hyde, after two of the parks there? Or if you went on honeymoon in...
How common or unusual do you want the names to be? Also, what ethnicity are the characters? That will depend on surname.
I've always wanted to use Phoebe and Imogen together as a twinset, but like others have said, there are plenty of options that would work.
Phoebe and Chloe
Phoebe and Matilda
Phoebe and Vivian...
Lee and Leigh are pronounced the same to me, so I'm a bit baffled by this alternative pronunciation - is it meant to be kind of like lay-vee?
I prefer Levi (lee-vye) Hugo to Conner Hugo. Connor's...
1. I'd say early July, as late July and August are school holidays over here, so there'll be tons of families with kids about. Early July would still be busy, but probably marginally less so.
Say: Hi Violet, lovely to meet you.
Think: Big Ben Affleck fan? His daughters are Violet and Seraphina.
Have you met my sons, Joseph Matthew and Oliver George? We call them Joey and Ollie...
Poll: Favourite Joe name?
I've always loved Joseph, and the nickname Joe, but I came across an adorable little Josiah recently and it got me thinking about whether there are any other ways to get to Joe that I've not...
There's not a lot you can really do with Sophie, except the obvious Sophia, which I don't like and wouldn't use - nothing against the name, I'm just fed up of people calling me it by mistake enough...
Exactly this. Bexley is a place to me, not a name. I can sort of see the appeal in that it's got trendy sounds, but if I came across a kid named Bexley I'd wonder why, of all the place names in the...

I wouldn't dismiss your favourite names based on what your parents think - they had their chance to name kids, now it's yours. Everyone's got different tastes, you and your parents included, and...
A lot of the obvious ones have been said, but there's also
Reuben > Ruby
Francis/Franklin > Frankie/Fran
Angus > Ann
Grayson > Grace
Victor > Vicky
Evan > Evie/Evvie
I quite like Madeleine (Maddy) or Rebecca (Becky) for the oldest, and I agree with going for something cutesy for the youngest. Not too bothered about maintaining the nature theme, as it seems a bit...
I quite like Maisie or Ruby for the youngest, but I'm not sold on either of the suggestions for the older two. I don't think old-fashioned names were quite as 'in' 16 years ago, especially not for...
It depends what type of vibe you're going for. Marcus is the more common name and I see it as being quite a conservative choice by conservative parents, whereas Marius is a bit more unusual and...
