I know a Hector - his nicknames are Hec and Heccie. I think it's a great name!

Neither of my DS's nn's have any obvious associations with their names, they just kind of evolved over time. Don't sweat it.

The german word for witch is Hexe. Guess it comes from Hex.

Hex or Tori/Tor. Probably Hex, but I am a bit odd and do love me an 'x' in a name.

And nn's just happen, you don't need an automatic one. You'll probably end up calling him something completely random related to something he did as a toddler anyway.

There aren't any nice nicknames imo - Heck? Hex? Also, the meaning of hector would put me off.

I was going to say Hec but my phone changed it too Hex hmm

Hecky

I did think Hex, but it means evil spell. I don't feel the need for a nickname, but dp is troubled by the lack of.

Hex? To rhyme with sex? Or hex like a gypsy's curse?! confused

Heckythump if you're in Scotland!

No, sorry I tried and can't. It is an ancestral name that you are expected to use in order to inherit the castle?

Tor? Hec?

I'd say if nothing comes to you intuitively that searching for nickname is bit pretentious
