Nicknames that make great baby names

baby with cat 1In almost any language on the planet, nicknames are shorter versions of first names. In many cases the nickname is so much better than the original name.

There is absolutely no reason why you should have second thoughts: Go straight for the nickname, especially when you realize that you despise the formal version of the name.

Nicknames derive from all parts of the full names. Front, back or even the middle of the first name. For example, Ed from Edward, Tina from Augustina or Liz from Elizabeth.

Tabitha or Bartholomew could be disastrous for a baby girl or boy. But turn them into nicknames and you get Abby or Barry.

You can even consider finding a nickname that derives from a surname.

All parents take extra care when the time comes to choose a name for their precious baby boy or girl. Many of them worry that the first name they’ll choose may in some point be turned into a funny and embarrassing nickname.

Opting for a nickname is a lovely and fresh idea for your baby. Not to mention that it’s a choice that will help your baby to correctly pronounce its own name a lot faster.
