Alternative to nickname for Christopher
Hi there, Berries! It is tradition in both my family and DH's family to name the firstborn son after their father, so I was not surprised when we found out we were expecting a boy and my DH said he wanted a Junior. The only problem is I have two Uncle's, each with sons who have sons named Christopher as well as two cousin Christa's and an aunt Christine. My husband was also named after his Uncle, Christopher. So it is a very common name on both sides - all Christopher's being called Chris. My family has gone as far as having a Big Chris, Lil' Chris and Baby Chris. While I don't have a problem with the name, nor do I want to deny my husband a junior, I just don't want my son to be another Chris in the family. I've read that Kit can be used as a nickname and I'm not crazy about it, I also don't think I could sell our families on it. So, I've been wondering if Cruise/Cruz could be an acceptable alternative - or if it's too far of a stretch? Please help, all suggestions are welcome!!
PS: DH and I once had a neighbor with a son called CJ that really ruined that option for us.

BOYS: Seamus Arthur, Niall/Neil/Neal James
GIRLS: Deirdre/Deidra "Dear" ??? (Ellen or Suzanne)
