Sharon?

Da
Don
Den

It's a shortish name as it is.

Daz gets my vote

Dal

She hates Daz and Dazzer - and TBH I agree with her!

Dan?
Dar?

are you trying to think of names to call someone you know who is called Darren, or wondering about naming a child Darren but wanting to pre-empt the inevitable nicknames?

Dar? Are you mad?

Sounds like a half hearted "Darling"...... in a not so cool way

I know a Darren who got Dash.

Dash is quite a cool nickname....maybe not at Christmas though, eh?

She really wants to please her MIL, who had a db called Darren. But unless she finds a pleasing nickname for Darren, it's going to have to be a middle name.

They'll always get Daz (from others) surely? Or Dar (equally awful).

My brother is a Darren (it was his middle name, but he chose to use it instead of William or James - god knows why!)....he gets called Daz, or Darry by my mum!!!

My ex Bf was called Darren (lovely name) but everyone called him Daz (Horrible - hate it)

D. I sometimes call my DH this. I like Darren as it is and I think Dash is a very cool name, I'm going to use that from now on grin Most people call him Daz. I don't.

Dow (as in Wow)

my Cousin is Darren, I call him Daz however he's also known as Darry

my hubby is a darren, and some people call him Dar (which sounds alright with a cornish accent IMO) but mostly people dont shorten it at all.

Middle name! Darren is just way too 70s, and Daz is pretty much inevitable. Surely there are other easier ways to please a MIL?

Sorry I just think its an awful name-goes with Sharon and Tracy and Wayne

TotallyAndUtterlyPaninied Mon 14-Dec-09 10:57:53

When I first met my DH I wasn't keen on his name as his mates kept calling him 'Daz' but now he's 'Darren' to me and I love it, it's just a lovable name. It's also Irish and very inoffensive.
