    nickname for Xavier?

    How does that one work? Do you call your little baby boy X? That's cool when he's a teenager, but what until then? Any suggestions?

    Re: nickname for Xavier?

    Funny: My son is Owen and we call him O, even though we didn't plan that. And X is definitely a name a teenager would thank you for (but a prospective bride, maybe not so much). You can impose a nickname to some extent, in my experience -- we've always insisted our son Joseph be called Joe and not Joey, for instance, and that's worked -- but sometimes friends or the child himself will choose a different nickname. Zave?

    Re: nickname for Xavier?

    How are you pronouncing the name? Ex-ave-ee-er? Zave-ee-er? (I use the Zave-ee-er pronunciation.) If you use the former pronunciation, I think X is cool (but closely associated with Malcolm X, not a bad thing), but with the Zave pronunciation, I think Xave or Xavie are really fantastic.

    Good luck! :-)
