So I love a name that's a bit longer but can be shortened into a nickname. My daughters name is Olivia. Oli for short. We are TTC && I've been pondering boy names. No interest in looking at girl names yet. Lol. So far I like:



Bryson (Bryce)
Chandler (Chan)
Clayton (clay)
Jackson (Jack;Jax)
Clinton (Clint)
Anderson (Andy)
Cyrus (Cy)
Landon (not sure on a nick name.)



Do you mammas have any other names boy or girl that are longer but have cute nicknames? And can you think of a nickname for Landon? I thought maybe lanny. But that doesn't shorten it much.

My boys are Alexander (Alex) and Marcus- he could go by Marc, but I'm not a fan of the name Marc.. I like Marcus..



Landon... maybe Layne? Lane? Laine? I know it's not quite LAN, but maybe close enough? or Don? But I prefer Landon over any of those...

Thanks ladies. (:
I like Lane too, but still Landon best.
Now lets just hope I get to use one of them instead of a girl name. Hahah (:

I really like Elijah && Ezekiel. All of the other names are all names of relatives of mine or J's names. Lol. I love Silas tho! I was mad when my brother named his son that :(
