Best Baby Names with No Nicknames

By Emma Waterhouse

Baby names with no nicknames are perfect for parents who want full control over what their child is called. If you don't like the idea of your Alexander being known as Alex, or your Eleanor being called Ellie, then it might be time to reconsider your baby name choice — starting with the many no-nickname baby names in the list below.

Along with short names like Ivy, Eli, Cleo, and Luke, there are also a number of longer names which don't easily lend themselves to nicknames, like Lewis, Carmen, Harvey and Simone. Word names and surname names are particularly nickname proof categories, including cool unisex baby names like Sawyer, Murphy, Fox and Wren. And another bonus? Most of these cool baby names without nicknames are outside of the Top 100!
