    Alby / Albie

    Can it stand on its own? Or should it only be a nickname for Albert? And if it can stand on it's own, which spelling? My partner hasn't liked Alfie or Archie but actually is coming around to Alby/Albie! I find it adorable but not sure how it would serve him throughout life and into adulthood.
    I like Albert, but definitely don't love it. We are fond of nicknames, so tossing around the idea of using it as a full name. Let me know what you think ladies.

    I feel you're right in that it won't age well. It's very much a nickname and seems a bit too cutesy on something like a diploma or resume.

    No, it can't stand on its own and for the record, I don't think Archie and Alfie can stand on their own, either.

    Albie makes a nice nickname for Albert. It also sounds nice for Alban.

    I think Alby/Albie is rather adorable, but I would give a longer name as it does feel like a nickname. says that Alby is an anglicized version of Ailbhe meaning white.

    Instead of Albert, you could use: Alban, Albaric, Albern, Albin, Albion, Albus.

    Albie is adorable! But it definantly needs a full name, it's as nickname. Albert is awesome I know a little boy named Albert and he's smart and really cute. Curly blond hair and loves to be read to. I was also going to suggust Albus.
