Still looking for a name
I thought I had a name all picked out - Dashiell, nn Dash. But then a friend shortened Dash to D, which I really, really, really hate. Dash is already a nickname and it's only four letters! Why shorten it even more?
So, since nobody gets a say in what people use as a nickname, I've pretty much decided that nicknameable names are out. If I could find one I really liked, then maybe. But honestly, I mostly hate nicknames anyway.
So now I need new boys names. And I can't find any I really like.
Some I kinda like are:
But none of them quite fit.
So any suggestions?
Oh, and the middle/last names are Wyatt Henshaw, so it needs to go with that. I kind of like the name Anton, but Anton Wyatt Henshaw/Anton Henshaw sounds just awful. The repeating n sounds just wreck it.

Well, any name on earth can be reduced to just an initial. I think the chances of the whole world suddenly calling your little Dashiell 'D' are very slim- unless your son himself requests it when he's 13 or so, and then it's out of your hands.
Honestly, with two syllable Wyatt & Henshaw I think Dashiell sounds by far the best of the names on your list. I would stick with your original instincts and go for it. Dashiell is romantic and literary; Wyatt is a little bit cowboy. Together they make a great balance.
(And if you want to avoid terrible nicknames, definitely cross KILLian off your list).Blade, MD

blade: Yeah, that's pretty much why I haven't picked Killian. I like it, but.... it just doesn't quite work.
oiseau: Yeah, it's true, any name can be reduced to the first letter. But I'm also kind of just hating D names right now because I have a D name and my sister called me D when we were kids and I don't talk to her anymore so it's just sort of... rife with bad memories.
Jude - I kinda like this one. I think I'll add it to the list.
Parker - I partly like this one 'cause of Peter Parker, but I also can't help but think of it as a girl's name 'cause one of my favorite shows when I was younger had a girl character named Parker.
Kieran - This one keeps bouncing on and off my list. I like it, but I'm not so sure about the meaning "little dark one".
Levi - There was a kid in my elementary school/high school named Levi. He was a jerk.
Shane - Shane. Like the L word. Nope.
Conor - This one I really like!
Hugo - This is cute, but like Jacob/Jake, I think it doesn't really grow up very well.
Leo - Nope. Nope. Nope. Can't do it. Wyatt is picked for Wyatt Halliwell, from Charmed. And Wyatt Halliwell was named for Leo Wyatt. So... that's just a little too much, I think.
Oliver - Cute, and another superhero name! But... it's so popular! (It's honestly why Wyatt isn't going to be the first name.Too popular.)
