Which spelling? Juggernog-aholic 4 kids; 2 angel babies; P, AR, United States 20210 posts

We just found out yesterday that we are actually having a little boy. His name is going to be Tobias Grant and we were planning on calling him Toby.



Well, DH and I can't agree on which way to spell his nickname. DH thinks it should be Tobi since Tobias doesn't have a 'y' in it. I think it's too girly and want to spell it Toby.



So, which one?

The "i" makes it girly IMO. I voted Toby

I agree with you, OP. I think the "I" makes it look feminine.

Tobi to me would be a girl's name. Just tell him that Daniel has an I in it, but Danny has a Y in it.
