Nicknames as Full Names
I'm just wondering what the general consensus of nicknames as full names is. Personally, I don't like it, but I might be warming up to a select few. I LOVE Charlie, but have tried to like Charles and have failed. Same goes for Theo (Theodore). I wouldn't be against using Charles or Theodore in the middle somewhere, but I don't think I'm against using either Charlie or Theo in the middle either anymore. So, what's your general opinion?

I don't mind nicknames as full names, its perfectly okay. Why choose the full name instead of the nickname if you don't like it?Pondering...Alistair | Malachy | Ivo | Kian | Rupert | Ezra | Tavish | Bastian | Remy | Theo | Marius | Kit | Dimitri | Vaughn | Emrys | Frank | Leander | Tam | Ragnar | Lewis | Everett | Ansel | Wilkin | Tobias | Frederick

I agree with Olivia. In my signature I have that I love nicknames as full names.
I remember when the birth of Anna Paquin and Stephan Moyer's twins everyone seemed to think that Charlie and Poppy were too nicknamey. Poppy is an actual name people.
I don't see the point of naming your son Archibald when all you want is Archie.〜Ebs〜

I love the nickname Charlie too, but couldn't use Charles because I dated someone with that name. He was only ever called Chuckie and it always shocked me when I remembered his name was actually Charles (when I hear the name Charles, Ingalls comes to mind) but I still couldn't use it. I really love the (nick)name Charlie though. I probably still won't use it though. However, I don't much like the name Charles anyway, and would probably use Charlie on it's own even if I'd never dated someone named Charles.
Back to the point, I think nicknames as names are usually fine. If you like the nickname better than the name, use the nickname.Madison McKenzie
