I know someone who is named Harrison but goes by Huck, I think that's a cute nickname!

This would be cute paired with sibling Fin..Huck n' Finn. Though I prefer it as a middle name with Huck as the nn like Brad Paisley did. Though soo many things rhyme with it, and is it too country? Falls in with Jed, Jethro, Duke. Maybe it does have a hipster vibe to it too. Like Jude or Liam. Mmm thinking on it...
