    Girls nicknames I like without long forms yet
    Ellie/Ella - Not sure yet. Too many options.
    Roxie/Roxy - Don't know yet, not enough options? I can't deal with Roxanne.
    Tillie - I like Talia best but don't know if it would really work.
    Win/Winnie - one of the -wen names, probably. I freakin' love the Welsh/Cornish -wen names.

    Boys
    Johnny - John
    Jon/Jonty - Jonathan
    A.J. - I just like initials, okay? Aidan or Alan probably.
    Jet - Jethro
    Dash - Dashiell
    Hank - Henry.
    Cash - Cassius. Obviously not if I have a Jon/John, which is its only downside.
    Ike - Isaac
    Cai - Mordecai, or Malachi if possible. People keep telling me to spell it Malakai/Malacai and I don't want to get it kreatived up.

    Favourite boys nicknames without long forms yet
    Zach - I say this is for Zacharias. Husband seems to think "zac for Isaac" which makes me insaaaane.
    Zeke - My sister dibsed this one, dang it.
    Zeb - I love Zebulon. Husband does not.
    Elkie - Elkin? Elken? Looking for something English-friendly. Elchanan is a family name.
    Hank for something other than Henry, what I have no idea.
