    Question Full name for Del?

    I love the name Del/Dell for a boy, however I feel it's too short to work on its own (despite my love for nickname-names), so I need a longer form. The ones I've found so far are:

    Delaney
    Delano
    Delbert
    Delgado
    Delias
    Delmar
    Delmore
    Delroy

    The only ones I like out of these are Delaney and Delano. However, I worry Delaney has "gone to the girls" and Delano is too Italian-sounding to work for me. So what do you think of this list; do any of these work, or should I just use Del/Dell? Any other suggestions of how to get to Del/Dell would also be appreciated. Thanks!

    There was a character on the show "Private Practice" who went by Dell, whose first name was William. Not sure how that works but anyway.

    Wendell is another name that works, I actually quite like Wendell.

    I'd go for Dell or O'Dell... If you like Dal, there's Dallin.

    Private Practice was where I first heard the name, @sunkissedchild, and I've loved it ever since. Wendell is okay, if a little dorky... I'll think about it, thanks!

    More ideas please!
