I know that most names can be shortened however, some names have much more obvious / common shortened versions than others.
For example, popular ones include Daniel (Dan), Thomas (Tom) and Samuel (Sam).

I'm looking for suggestions on 2 syllable boys names that can't be shortened (or at least have less obvious shortenings). For example, Leon, Caleb and Niall.

Any suggestions please???? Thank you!!

Leon, Caleb and Niall.

You mean Lee/Leo, Cal and Nelly/Ny?

I used to know a Darren called Darren because his parents thought it couldn't be shortened, his school friends called him Daz

Boys have a knack of shortening/changing every name of their friends. Harry becomes Haz or Hazza, Theo becomes 'T', Charlie becomes Chas.

Good luck with finding a name that can't be shortened and please don't become one of those parents who corrects their dc's friends when they use a nickname, rather than the name you put on the birth certificate

My Joseph is still Joseph at almost 7 and noone has ever called him Joe. However, we chose it because we don't mind Joe if he ends up being known as that.

Meditrina: Godfrey = Free or Gods. I kid you not.

Oh and my Rory is Rooster. I know a Liam who became Monty. No way to control it I think.
