NO NICKNAME NAMES. I can always find a good nickname in any name. My partner's mom named her sons to have no nicknames: Jason is now Jay or Jase and Branden is B or Denny, etc. But if you want a name that will usually be said in full (no obviously accessible pet forms for people to pluck out of thin air), try starting with these.
I get a lot of comments and questions about embroidering baby names on quilts. It's something I started to do last year, and I've done it on almost every baby quilt I've made since. I love personalising a quilt with a name - and baby's mum always loves it :-)
