Nora vs Eleanor
I love the nickname Nora, and always thought I would name her Eleanor and then just call her Nora. I love Eleanor too, but I'm pretty confident we would shorten it.
One of my friends was talking the other day about how they think it's silly to name a child a longer name when all you want to call them is the nickname, i.e. Maxwell for Max, William for Billy, Abigail for Abby, Catherine for Cate etc. She was saying why not just name the child the nickname you're going to use.
My theory was that if we named her Eleanor, she could always use it when she's older as a more professional, mature sounding name as opposed to Nora.
What are your thoughts? I'm stuck on what to do ...
