Just remember, this is what your kids is going to be called the REST of his life. My parents stuck me with an awful name that kids made up lots of awful nicknames (words that sounded similar or rhymed) and I was quite picked on just because of my name growing up -
As an adult some people remark about my name "oh that's unique" but 99% of people can't spell it and don't understand what I said when I tell them on the phone - my co-workers still make fun of me when someone calls for me but gets my name wrong.
My daughters are name simple traditional names that are easily spelled just for that reason.
So are you going to spill and tell us your name? Pleeeze. :)
When I look at names I'm always inclined to look at it from the nickname version as most of the time that's where it's going to go. James to Jim, Ezekiel to Zeke, Nathaniel to Nate, Paxton to Pax, Camden to Cam, Gideon to?? I like Pax and Cam.
